The basic problem that students deal with, is being unable to recall what they have learnt. Human brain has it limitations it picks up few things not all. However there are many proven methods that help your brain remember information faster and easier which helps them in their daily life and will also help them to do better in exams. Here are the 7 Study Tips to Improve Memory:
Walk or exercise before an Exam: It’s been proven that exercise boosts memory and brain power. A study conducted by Dr Chuck Hillman of the University of Illinois provides evidence that approximately 20 minutes exercise before an exam can improve performance.
Speak Out Loud: This may make you look a little funny, give it a go! You will be amazed how much more you can learn when you’ve said it out loud. Trying this in a library can be a disaster.
Reward Yourself: There are many ways to blend a reward system into your study habits. You can reward yourself after a rigorous study session. For example: a piece of candy or any eatable that is your favorite for finishing 2 hours or 1 hour whatever suits you.
Revision: It doesn’t matter how much you have studied, what matters is how many times you have revised what you have studied. There is a famous quote by Bruce lee “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.“
Intervals: Everyone has their preference some like to go for 3-4 hours rigorous no intervals schedule. Few like to take a break every 1 hour. You should go for whatever suits you more.
Teach others or yourself: The excellent way to examine if you actually learn something is to try to explain it to someone else. If you can’t get anybody to listen to you teach the Pythagorean Theorem, why not teach a class of stuffed toys!
Draw Diagrams: Drawing diagrams will encourage you to imagine information which would be difficult to explain. This builds a visual memory in your mind which can be recalled in an exam. You may even be asked to draw or label diagrams such as the human heart in your exam so get practicing!
