Many students wonder what’s the perfect way to manage time and study efficiently throughout the year to gain successful academics scores. There are various questions that arise when thinking about studying efficiently during the academic year: How many hours per week should one study? How to create a long-term study plan? How to study during exams? Here are the solutions to these frequent questions and reasons to start learning according to needs.
Strategies And Learning According To Needs
Your ultimate set of goals must be shaping up yourself. That is how you start learning according to needs.
Discipline has to be there to follow the correct strategy. You should know what your capabilities are and what is your ultimate goal. The attitude should not be to study for 40-50 hours a week but to complete a particular set part of your syllabus. You do not need a written time table for yourself as it leads to inflexibility and is never really followed. Just know your priorities and make time for your studies. There should be precise planning as to what is your goal. Set a boundary for yourself and make sure you complete studying the set part of your syllabus within that deadline.
You should be flexible in your planning and stay truthful to yourself regarding your abilities while at it. Set small goals for yourself at initial stages and gradually go on increasing the graph. Be sure to give equal or at least the required importance to all the subjects. Instead of studying continuously for 3 hours monotonously, it is better to study intensively. Do it twice for 45 minutes with 10-20 minutes breaks in between. You should develop a habit of studying with full involvement of your mind and not be distracted or exhausted during your study session.
Parents And Their Contribution
Since it is all about homeschooling, the parents have enough space to make it easy for the children. Try to make studies entertaining for your child. Make him more interested in the act of researching by teaching him something he can connect with. You can do various fun activities which your child will enjoy and hence, learn. Like, while traveling, give your child the map, and ask him to direct. Or teach him using fun puzzles and quizzes.
Learning vast topics together can be scary. Try to take innovative steps. Ask your child to write the topic on a piece of paper. Then, ask them to write a few more words related to that topic. Then, help them write a few words again associated with previous words. In this way, create a map of words, which can later be converted into a paragraph, and your topic is ready. It is one strategy if your child has issues in essay writing or word collections. You can use various plans according to their problem areas.
Take a look at what you have achieved every month and revise the subjects regularly. You can note down the areas of importance if you wish to. It will help you to prioritize the topics during exams. Keep yourself updated regarding the ongoing topics in your school/college and be disciplined and consistent in following your strategies. Make sure you don’t overstress or dwell on non-important areas. Lastly, take care of yourself and keep yourself healthy enough to study efficiently.
