6. Set Targets For Projects:
If you have given any assignment, project, or presentation and have exams coming up too then set your target. For example, if you know there are 2 assignments due for 6 days then split 3 days for one assignment and spent half of the days making the assignment and half studying efficiently.
7. Take a Break:
One of my important parts of studying is this. If you have studied for 1 hour then your mind is not going to focus anymore because according to studies Our brain can only focus for a maximum of 30 minutes.
Do whatever you want in this time and reward yourself for working hard, Go out and take some fresh air, scroll down your social media account but don’t scroll too much, or watch one episode of your favorite season, and last but not the least eat something that you are craving for.
8. Don’t Revise In Last Minute:
Now that you have studied effectively and smartly for your exams, don’t burden yourself with revision at the last minute. Relax and think that you have done everything and you know everything you studied.
Sometimes just before the exams, we think that we forget every word but it’s natural and happens to everyone.
