I’m sure no one would openly want to spend their free time studying. I get it. Everyone has social lives outside of school, including parties, activities, sports, and so on. Often, that interferes with your time and ability to study or do homework. That’s why in this blog post, I’m going to show you how to manage your time and get that 100% you deserve.
1. Make a Schedule
Two club meetings and a football game are a recipe for disaster in terms of your bio grades. However, if you make a schedule for the day, you can achieve more than you thought you could. If you plan out your time efficiently, you would notice that about half of the time you are sitting around doing nothing productive. By making a schedule, you are giving yourself a set time to complete an assignment or to finish your break time to make the most of our day. You might not even need to skip basketball practice to study for your calculus test after all.
2. Read the Book Daily
Reading books are not fun. However, a majority of tests and quizzes are from the book, so read as much as you can. Take hand-notes to retain as much information from the book as possible. Also, try to enjoy what you are reading- it will help you remember it above all else.
3. Review Flash Cards every Hour if Possible.
Muscle memory is a powerful tool you can use for studying. The more you drill something into your head, the more you will remember it. If you can continue this great grade-saving habit for at least a week before whatever quiz or test you have, I guarantee you that you will get that easy 100% on the -ar Spanish conjunctions assessment.
4. Plan out Your Hangouts
It’s a Sunday afternoon. You’re out partying with your friends when you know that you should be studying for a final tomorrow. You plan to leave at 6 to have enough time to study for finals, but the party starts wrapping up at around 10 instead. Although sports practices and club meetings cannot be adjusted, you are under control of when you should and should not hang out. In fact, you should take a quick overview of the week before making any plans for parties. You rather have a good 90-something percent in math and leave the party early than have a 70% after the finals and not be able to party at all.
