Aren’t you tired of studying everything in a bulk right before your exams and tests? And even memorizing all night still doesn't help remember the contents right? You are in the right article if you’ve been wondering about how to improve the way you study for your exams and tests.

Every student dreams of acing their tests. Studying for tests and exams can be stressing, I can understand how hard it can be. That is why I am here with some effective ways that will help you study for your test and which will help you reduce your stress level while or before giving the test and exams.

Here, I have divided the steps for studying. It consists of 4 steps and some effective points in each of the steps to help you study efficiently.

Step 1

Study during School

Take notes:

Taking notes is an important factor while attending a lecture. If you can, it will be better and easier to read later on, if you paraphrase the notes while writing it.

Eliminate Distraction:

Staying away from social media and any kind of other distractions even your friends is a good decision to make while trying to study. Eliminating distractions helps you to focus more on the thing you’re trying to do, which means that you will be able to concentrate more than usual.

Organize Hierarchically:

When you take the notes make sure to take it neatly and arrange the points in order, so that later on, when you try to take reference, it becomes easier to understand.

Step 2

3 to 7 days before the exam

This is the time when most of the students start studying for the test or exam.

Make a cheat sheet:

List out all the important points in 1 or 2 papers and study those points. This will help to remember the main and important points for the test which will help you do better on the test.

Step 3

1 to 3 days before the exam

As mentioned above if you take good notes during lectures, you will be able to take reference from them, which will be really helpful.

Practice Problems:

The notes will guide you while studying. Start by practicing the problems. Focus where you get weak while practicing. This way you will get to know about where you feel difficulty.

Step 4

1 day before the exam

Make good choices:

Studying an extra hour might help you remember a point or 2, but you will lack sleep. That will make you unable to function properly. So, it will be better if you get enough sleep before taking the exam. Eat food and maybe drink a cup of coffee before taking the exam.

This will improve your performance while taking the test or exam.
