It’s important to set goals so you know what you’re working towards and you can study with purpose. SMART goals help you develop a clear idea of what you want to achieve and how best to do it. SMART means Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely.
When it feels like we have 100 things on our to do list, it can be tempting to switch between them constantly. Multitasking reduces the effectiveness of your study. Focus on one subject at a time to learn the most and be clear on your priorities by writing them down.
Have the Right Tools for the Job
Showing up to class without at least a notebook and pen is a recipe for disaster. How can you remember your lesson if you don’t make notes? Give yourself the tools for success by having a notebook per subject, as well as using a planner or whatever else helps you record deadlines and exam dates.
Be aware of your energy and stress levels. Take time out when you need it and try to be present when studying. Set yourself rewards for difficult tasks and take a moment to celebrate every small accomplishment.
We hope these tips inspire you to have an amazing school year! Discover our Study Planner here.
