Head of the class

Learn how to be a better student.

Your thoughts (64)

Here are some fun and easy tips that will help get you to the head of the class in no time!

Colour your world
Write notes and pay attention in the class. When you get home re-copy the really tough stuff to help memorise it. Make your notes more interesting, highlight the important parts. You can also add lists, stickers, or whatever you think will help keep you alert. This will also help you study better because our brains naturally love things that look fun!

Take a break
Every 50 to 60 minutes, take a break from your books for a couple minutes to re-energise yourself. A short walk outside will reset your brain and inspire you to jump back into studying.

But not with your phone
Put your phone away. And any other gadgets. The more places your brain is scattered into, the less likely you are to remember what you were studying.

Test yourself
Ask someone in your family or a friend to do little tests with you. Nothing proves how well you know the subject like having somebody asking you about everything you just studied.

Don’t forget to reward yourself
Maybe it’s a piece of cake or giving yourself some time to check your Facebook, or maybe it’s just jumping up and down and shouting to celebrate. Be proud of all the hard work you’ve done!

It's very easy to become addicted to checking your phone and many of us spend hours on our phones, sometimes without even noticing. I would suggest finding a distraction. Reading a book, running, watching TV series, spending time with friends. Even while doing other things, one can feel the urge to still check their phone. So make the conscious decision to check your phone less.

You can give yoir mom your phone in order for u to focus

Mvelo get a partner to study with which can be suitable for you

Getting a partner is another thing because sometimes yr partner may even skip classes and even not participate and that's why I say working individual is better

Many people struggle with studying. Give yourself enough time to study, do not leave it till the last minute. I'd suggest not studying on your bed, that will make you feel sleepy, so maybe visit the library or sit at the dining room table or a desk. Take regular breaks so you aren't overloading yourself with too much information at one time. You can even organise a study group with friends. Here's a link to an article to beat the stress by balancing your school and home life. Good luck, let me know how your next study session goes. http://za.gem.molo.unicore.io/sections/my-life/beat-the-stress/

Its so true my aunt take my phone everytime but still I can't get anything in my head

Well I've tried those methods and they're not working...This has been ongoing since my first year in High school. . I just lack inspiration whenever i need to study,when i do try getting down to my books,I fall asleep within 10mins. . Ive drew up a study time table and yet i keep procrastinating.Im very competitive but ive never been head of the class,always second best....It kills me knowing that im only pulling through all because of general knowledge...I dont know what to do anymore.

March 20, 2022, 9:01 p.m.

I really think u should study when you actually want to .....see theres a difference between staring at your books and ...actually studying.... We tend to stare at our books when we are forced to study ..and nothing seems to soak in..hence i think u should study when u have the determination and when u in the feels

Hi Springster. Becoming head of the class involves a lot of hard work and consistency which is very doable. Like the article says write notes and pay attention, every 50 to 60 minutes, take a break from your books for a couple minutes to re-energise yourself, put your phone away and any other gadgets, reward yourself with a snack or giving yourself some time to check your Facebook.

hi guys . When i read or study my books i feel like i waste my time to read them,can you help me Gabi please

I think putting your phone away is mostly the biggest challenge in teens time of study.As soon as a massage pops up or something you are most likely to check whether it is important.Put it on silent:-)
