Study material ๐Ÿ“–, time ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ are some resources that a student uses to reach the desired target position ๐ŸŽฏ in any examination.

4. Create a Study Time Table

A study time table ๐Ÿ“… can be a good direction provider to your studies. Students often makes some subjects stronger while left other subjects weaker just because they dedicate more than required time โŒš to a subject and less to other.

A topper student never do partiality among subjects and gives every subject required time. It can be a limit like 100 Hours ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ a subject or few days ๐Ÿ“† to a subject.

Reading and learning the same subject often makes study boredom ๐Ÿ˜“. So, why not we should plan a time table ๐Ÿ“… for our study in such a way that it dedicates proper required time to each subject and make the study interesting ๐Ÿ˜ by taking subjects in a parallel manner to study. Like English ๐Ÿ“— – Maths ๐Ÿ“˜ – Science ๐Ÿ“™ on alternate days.

โž— Divide the total time period among subjects according to target as well as your interest, skills and ability in those subjects ๐Ÿ“š.

5. Create a study plan

What if I say you to reach USA ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ from India ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ without telling you the route that you need to follow to reach USA ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ timely. A proper plan ๐Ÿ“‹ must be made to reach the target ๐ŸŽฏ position in students life.

Common mistake by students

Students often commits this mistake that they prepare time table but don’t know how to study effectively in exam or complete the course to get higher position ๐Ÿ…. They don’t know what study pattern they must follow to study effectively. Some students prefer to learn hard units before and easy chapters later.

Study plan helps to reach targets efficiently

Suppose you want to reach the top position of a mountain ๐Ÿ—ป then you must know the route that can take you easier there.

I believe a student must follow the same pattern in which the book ๐Ÿ“• is written from first unit to end unit because a writer always starts from a initial topic to final topic with interconnections ๐Ÿ”ƒ between them. Like you understand second chapter of a book ๐Ÿ“• better if you have read first chapter before.

You can also choose easy chapters before to make good command over easy ones before and then work hard on difficult chapters with narrow targets ๐ŸŽฏ.

Sense of motivation and confidence is necessary

This brings sense of motivation and confidence in students if they feel that they have made or hold a good position in syllabus by completing few chapters that were easy for them. Completing a difficult unit is less than completing 3 units as more weightage is of more units.

6. Execute study plan

You can execute your study plan in this step in the way that you designed it.

I know it is hard to adhere to a study plan for students because sometimes due to fear or less time or mis designed โŒ study plan student fails to adhere to it. So, you must make a proper study plan so that you can execute it for studying effectively.

7. Write quick notes
