5 Tips for Effective Study

By Maria Kardi (A class)


 Students grapple with many issues in their lives, and because of all of the competing things for your attention, it’s hard to concentrate on studying.

So if you are looking to make the most of your study time and get better grades at school, here are some tips to increase your effectiveness as a student.

Don’t forget that the key to effective studying isn’t cramming or studying longer, but studying smarter.


1. Use an Assignment Notebook: Organize you studying by writing down all your assignments and notes so you don’t forget anything.


2. Cut out all distractions: No TV, phone calls, or loud music. These can ruin your concentration.


3. Get a healthy snack and water bottle:  Keep yourself hydrated and small snacks like peanuts or fruit will help keep you energized.


4. Create a study space: Find a comfortable and quiet space with good lighting.


5. Take breaks: Working too long on a task can actually decrease your performance.
