Study tips

Hi everyone,

I'll be taking the selective school exams in about two months and need some help. My first preference is Nossal and I am attending two tuitions: James An College and Henderson. I often find it hard to concentrate and get easily distracted while studying. Some useful tips for studying, keeping on track and memorising information easily would be very helpful.

Thank you!

Hi! I guess I'll be meeting you in two months lol even tho my first preference is Mac.Rob :)

I get distracted A LOT so here's some tips that helped me!

1. Listen to white noise
It really depends on person what white noise makes you concentrated. Personally, water noise makes me concentrated but you might get concentrated by wind sound, beach sound etc.

2. Remove things that would distract you.
This is more important than listening to white noise, REMOVE ANYTHING that would distract you like books, art supplies, ELECTRONIC DEVICES (VERY important to remove) and anything else that would distract you. and always keep your room clean!

Hope I helped in anyway :)

1. As others suggested, you could try blocking out the sound with headphones
2. Write out a study timetable - I was never a fan of this until recently because I've written myself one for the 2 week break coming up
3. Have detailed yet succinct notes and maybe transfer them onto flashcards, put them into mind maps BUT what's more important is that you put the information that you learn into practice (past papers etc.) and hand them to your teacher for marking
4. I know you didn't ask this but if you're lacking motivation to study, I always watch a youtube video of study you tubers (Unjaded Jade, Ruby Granger, Revision with Eve) basically anyone who films 'Study with me" videos as it really inspires me (do this before studying not during so that you don't get distracted!)

Hope this helps!  :)

If you get distracted on like your phone (like I do) use the app ‘Forest’ which basically grows virtual trees if you don’t go on your phone for a set time. Like others suggest, listen to music and make sure you have good notes that are easy to remember on hand for questions. Also allow yourself a break every once and a while :)
