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.
