Top 10 Engineering students tips

Don’t Try To Learn All Languages In One Go

In start, you should be focusing on one language until you get comfortable with it properly. Some first-year students try to learn more and more languages rather than focusing on one and end up learning none. Remember, It’s not that hard to switch to another language if you are good at one. But if you will try to switch frequently, you won’t remember the syntax of anyone and no one is going to ask you how many languages you know. Even you just need one language to clear the coding round of any company. They want to see your problem-solving skills, not your memorization power.

Write everything down

To be an effective student, write everything down. This includes homework to be completed, test and exam dates, project deadlines, competition dates, school and family events, etc. Don’t assume that you’ll be able to remember anything; write it all down to stay organised. This tip might sound extreme, but life only gets busier as you get older. Good organisational skills are the basis for achieving success at school and beyond. So this tip will serve you well for the rest of your life.

Use experiments

There are many theories and concepts in physics which can be easily understood and registered in mind by making use of laboratory experiments. Experiments help in a clear demonstration of theories and assist students to write their exams in an easy manner. By this way, the concepts are registered for a lifetime and they do not forget.

Active participation

When physics is considered, the student can learn it if they understand the concept of class. Hence, the student needs to participate actively in the class, listen and take proper notes. By this way, there are no hassles or confusion after reviewing.

Have a specific plan or objective for each study session

Many students share with me that their mindset toward studying is that they’ll “study hard”. This might sound good, but it actually means that they don’t have a specific objective or plan. They’re interested in attaining success at school and getting good grades, but they’re not clear about what positive actions they’re going to take in particular. This vague approach isn’t the one that effective students take toward their academics. For each study session, set a clear objective as to what you intend to achieve. This might be to read through a set of notes thoroughly or complete 30 multiple-choice questions.

Study Tips for College Students

Everyone knows that college students have a lot to do not just in terms of school but also with their social lives and part-time jobs.  Thus, it's important to know how to manage your time well so that you can get everything done.  These study tips could help students with this:

  • How to prioritize tasks when there is too much work
  • Tips for studying efficiently – time management strategies that will allow the student to finish all their schoolwork on time including studying without distractions, setting a schedule for homework and exams…etc.
  • How to avoid common college student procrastination
  • How to stay focused when studying

Use memory techniques

Memory techniques are powerful ways to learn information more quickly. Here are some of the most useful ones I’ve come across:

  • Acronyms
  • Visualisation
  • Chunking
  • Association

Get at least 8 hours of sleep every night

Students who perform well are effective learners. As the research shows, sleep is a vital part of becoming an effective learner. Sleep boosts memory and enhances learning. So go to bed at roughly the same time every day, and make it a priority to get 8 hours of sleep a night. If you do this, I’m sure you’ll see an improvement in your academic performance. Pulling all-nighters definitely isn’t how to do better in school. It might enable you to get some last-minute work done. But over time, your performance in school will decline.

Importance of Revision

As the syllabus is vast, many aspirants study all the topics but do not revise them regularly. Keep in mind your brain is a volatile memory like RAM, which means that it requires power (in your case, its revision) to maintain the stored information. It retains its contents while powered on, but the stored data is lost when the power is interrupted (when you don’t revise topics). Read More: List of NCERT Books for IAS Preparation
