Which study techniques do the top students follow?


It’s the most effective and quickest way.

50% studying & 50% applying your knowledge

For every half hour of studying, you take the same time to take practice tests.

Why? Easy - each test question targets very specific abilities. Are you going to have to write an essay, short answers, do a multiple choice test or solve math problems? Are you going to have to argue, analyze, reproduce knowledge or explain? By taking practice exams you get used to how you’re supposed to apply what you rememberHow you use what you remember is often more important than how much you really remember.

It’s also a lot more active than studying. You have to reproduce your knowledge and apply it. You don’t just read about Entropy or the Categorical Imperative, but actually have to answer questions about it and explain it, which is a lot harder. You will get a better sense of what you actually do understand and what you should maybe look at a little closer. It’s super easy to seemingly understand a concept when you have your notes, that you just read, right under your nose. Explaining requires a true understanding of the matter at hand.

Personally I always try to find previous exams of that teacher about the same subject and if I can’t get any, I’ll phrase questions myself. Try to narrow down what the test is actually about as much as possible and take into account on what concept the teacher lay great stress on.

After doing a practice exam you correct it yourself, using your notes and phrasing more ideal answers. You will become quite aware of what you already know and what topics you should focus on. Plus you’ll be less nervous when taking the actual test!

What are the top hobbies that make you smarter?

 Any hobby that allows you to experience from the Learning Loop will make you better, stronger and smarter.

So long as you absorb and apply feedback through this loop, you’ll become smarter.

Beyond this learning loop, these hobbies are proven to help people lead a smarter and balanced life.

Reading - Expand Your Mind

Warren Buffet told students at a Columbia Business School: “Read 500 pages…every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.” Enough said :).

Writing - Structure How You Brain Thinks

Jeff Bezos doesn’t allow his employees to express new ideas as slides….he only accepts written documents and narratives. There’s good reason for this. Writing is one of the best ways to train yourself how to structure an argument, build a story and convey ideas logically.

Education - Build Intellectual Wealth

Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, said “I am concerned that too many people are focused too much on money and not on their greatest wealth, which is their education.” Education is one of the best ways to expand your mind and increase intelligence.

Music - Expanded Cognitive Skills

While studies differ on whether there is such a thing as the Mozart Effect (a hypothesis put forward by Dr Gordon Shaw, that listening to Mozart while studying boosts IQ), listening to music is one of the very best ways to get into ‘flow’. Whether you’re studying or working on a complex problem, music can help your brain do its best work. And playing a musical instrument has been proven to increase cognitive skills and brain function. So if music is food for your ears, eat well and nutritiously :)

Martial Arts/Dance/Yoga/Focused Exercise - Know Your Body, Know Yourself

Intellectual intelligence is different from body intelligence. Truly knowing ourselves requires us to connect our mind and our body. Any hobby that does this - martial arts, dance, yoga, sports - will help you build this connection and learn about yourself.

how to develop a hobby!!

Create a zone for your hobby. A zone should have time, place, ambience and comfort. This zone should be sacred. You must be in zone daily or as you schedule.

Information hunt. Find sources for your hobby, develop knowledge about it.

Inspiration place. You must have inspiration for your hobby. You must not get bored with it.

Always in check. No matter what you're going through, don't drop your excitement for the zone. This will keep your mind healthy.

Best effective mehtods!

There are no hard and fast rules for the "best" study methods. Different people may have different ways to go about the same problem, so in the end it all depends on what works for you. I will list down some of the methods I have tried adopting and are some sure shots methods bound to work for everybody.
Write. Write everything down.
Do not rely on your memory. No matter how great your photographic memory is, it is bound to get erased or over written after some time, Time which depends on your retaining power.
The best way to retain something forever is to write it. Then and there. It may be with a pen and paper or in the electronic form, whatever works for you. While carrying a pen/paper may not always convenient, everybody carries a mobile phone, the perfect repository for your thoughts/learnings.
One of my very learned teachers once said, everybody can understand things, its about recalling them in exam. This line has stuck with me since. Revise, go over things again and again. This creates a permanent picture in your mind with the sequence of events which you can reproduce any time, anywhere.
Our teachers in school used to ask us to recall,at bedtime, everything we did the day. Now I realize the multiple benefits of inculcating this habit. As easy as it may sound, it helps you look at your achievements/mistakes and learn from them, acting as a memory boost for lifetime.
Another good way to create a permanent image in mind is to associate things. This is said to work best for building vocabulary wherein you associate the words with things in life, create a picture in mind, draw it, relate it to something.
If it works for vocabulary building it can work for many other things as well.
Build a memory map with interconnected images that hops from one image to another making it a story for you.
While learning a new fact, discuss it with somebody. Explain. They say you've not understood your concepts well if you can't explain them to a child. This helps you to clear your doubts and in the process refines your understanding.
To check your understanding and give a clear, crisp and precise form to it, reorganize it in your own words. Give an alternate meaning and it gets etched in your memory in the words you produced it in.

How can you be a good student & easily understand any subject?

By being a natural learner. Being curious, observant and a listener. By not living in pre-conceived notions about the world and questioning what makes you curious or what you don't know.

By being honest and relaxed with yourself. Accept yourself the way you are. That's when you will learn. And enjoy learning.

When you don't feel like studying, there must be a reason. You would have a need to do something else. Do that, be happy and come back to study when you happily feel like coming back to it 100%.

Also be a doer of things. Practice what you get to know and learn. Education is complete only when we:
1. Gain knowledge (Know)
2. Apply knowledge (Do)
3. Demonstrate that learning in yourself - personality/character/attitude

Efficient Strategies for studying for students!!

You may be a student in a school or college or you are self teaching yourself. Whichever it is, there are some strategies I use and that I proved to be successful.

  1. Know your goal. Is it to get good grades in college or is it to enlighten yourself and build understanding of a subject matter? Generally good grades aren't directly related to your understanding of the detailed concepts. They are sometimes dependent on the teacher, the school or college etc.
  2. Collect your most relevant materials. Be systematic here to rank which of the books, slides, tutorial videos are the best and most relevant to your goal. To be honest here, around 90 percent of the materials you get are irrelevant and simply wasting your time.
  3. Do not miss classes if you are a student. Understand the way your teacher teaches. Figure out conceptual information that is encapsulated within what you are learning. Be very curious and ask yourself questions around what is being taught.
  4. Refrain from using too much social media. They are all distractions and wastage of time.
  5. Eat brain healthy food such as oily fish, avocado, green tea, eggs, vegetables, blue berries, etc.
  6. Prepare for your study. Avoid distractions. If you are exhausted, have a rest and meditate first. Use music for study. Focus on very important concepts. Understand the concepts first don't just read. Correlate with your existing understanding of related concepts. Use paper and pen. Write down what you understood. Challenge yourself with a quiz. Do this for around two hours and stop there. Have a short break. Have a snack. Then continue studying for the second round.
  7. Be deep thinker and critically think about what you're studying while you're actually not studying. This includes while you're eating, travelling and essentially every kind of the routine activities.

Education and life balance tips for students!

The situation of balancing life and education only comes when you have no extra thing i.e. ECA to do in college or any other thing which makes you feel happy or in case study which never ever makes any one happy a person like me but no offence to the one who like study also.

Coming to the point there are few things which you can do to make education and life balance:

1.     try to make a schedule and stick to it if u can.

2.     Meet new people around do studies as well as explore your own self.

3.     Enjoy every moment, get the maximum out of it.    

Don’t stress upon things as if you do so then your balance will get disturbed and then you will be on the either side as stress can be from bot education side as well your personal life also. Hope all this will help you in maintaining the balance.

What could be the best option for students in career after 10th standard?

Hello there! I’ve just passed my 10th board exams so I thought that I can answer this question. The best opinion of career after 10th actually depends upon the interest of students. I have heard many juniors saying that they’ll opt according to their grades in Xth boards. Even I had that misconception but once you enter class XI you find the course substantially different than class X. It’s what I call a depth of subject. So, one should choose a subject as per his comfort-ability and dedication of studying that subject and not on 10th grades. One more thing : Best opinion of career can be found in any subject if studied with excellency.
Be it Commerce , Maths ,Bio or Arts.

Hope, this will help you!!

What is the best way to use this lockdown as a student?

For learners lock down is a opportunity for self development and self analysis. during lock down many distractions are in rest (no parties, vacations or get to gather….etc ) so as a student you got more time to spend with you for any type of improvement in studying.

Know your self in which area you want to improve yourself ex: in concentration, mastering difficult subject, developing skills for fast learning (if you are slow learner).

Try to deliver your learning result in your style either in explanation, writing, presentation in any form, this helps you to expose yourself to the outer world.

These days everyone sees Marks & percentage as success, increase in academic marks & percentage is taken as growth in success rate and vice versa,


A true success for a student is gaining of knowledge,

As it is known fact that known is a drop and unknown is an ocean,

MARKS & PERCENTAGE never & never show success rate of a Student, they are just numbers which are used by some people to allot a particular place to every student in a classroom or an educational institution.

Students must always focus on the quality and quantity of knowledge they receive throughout their journey.

But not on marks they are receiving,

One should focus on lesson rather than question and answeras questions and answers are meant for marks but lessons are meant for life

Subjects may vary but every subject conveys some lesson which is to be learnt, the more number of lessons one learns, the more knowledge one gains.

Challenges faced by new teachers in starting their career

It’s been almost one and half years since we all are locked in our house and there are many industries where people have lost their jobs. Ed...
