1. Set study goals:
There are lots of credible research suggesting that goal setting can be used as part of a strategy to help people successfully effect positive changes in their lives. Make sure that you ask yourself some key questions: Am I setting realistic goals? Will I need to work harder to achieve those goals?
2. Make study plan:
Time is precious. The key to breaking the cycle of cramming for tests is to think ahead and create an effective study plan.
3. Take regular study breaks:
This can take the form of ten-minute walk, a trip to the gym, having a chat with a friend or simply fixing yourself a hot drink.
4. Test yourself:
This helps you to mentally prepare for the pressure of having to remember key dates, facts, names, formulas and so on. Testing yourself with regular quizzes is a great way of doing this.
5. Find an healthy balance:
Take this opportunity to evaluate yourself both physically and mentally. Is your engine running low? Instead of complaining about not getting enough sleep, take control and do something about it.
6. Be positive:
Your attitude has a big impact on the level of study that you get done and the effectiveness of your learning process. Focus your mind on positive outcomes and on how you can use your own individual strengths to achieve them.
Collaborate with study partners.
Turn lessons into stories.
