We all need some study tips, right?

Whether in secondary or sixth form or university, we need some tips and tricks to get through our studies without dying inside. 

At least I did and still do. 

Since I'm starting my second this September, I thought I would compile my favourite study tips. Perhaps as a reminder to actually study now. So here are my top ten tips to study effectively!

1 . Find a designated study space at home & elsewhere. A desk at home and perhaps a place outside, like a coffee shop or the local library. A minimal area with minimal distraction.

2 . Listen to music. Any white noise to help your brain focus on the material at hand. I recommend instrumentals rather than any current pop music.

3 . Create a studying agenda or a schedule. Figuring what you will study at a specific time helps your mind focus on the task at hand.

4 . Take breaks often, usually I study for 20 - 30 minute intervals and spend the next 5 - 10 minutes resting, by reading or knitting.

5 . Switch your phone on airplane mode, and laptop without wifi. Let's be honest. We'd get much more work done without internet.

6 . Find a time of day you would like to study. During A Levels, I would wake up at 4am to study, go in morning, and early evenings but I wouldn't touch a book in the afternoon.

7 . Get enough sleep, which is pretty hard. You'll get more work done when you have slept the full 8 hours, or at least 6-7 hours. If required…

8 . Take naps. I love naps, they are underrated. 20 - 30 minute power naps are perfect boosts during the day to get your mind recharged.s!

9 . Figure out your study plan or how you want to study. Some people use mind maps but I don’t like them. I prefer using Lined paper and writing notes there, with highlighters. It's up to you to find a preferred way of studying.

10 . Reward yourself. After a good study session, I eat chocolate because it does help boost your memory. At least that’s what I tell myself because I find any excuse to eat chocolate.

As a law student, I would like to pretend I use all the tips. In reality, I do the bare minimum to get through. As most of my friends do too. If you need more help, I compiled 13 study tips last year!

Still, I hope this does help you get through classes. O Level, A Level and the new semester is just around the corner after all. Yikes.

What are your favourite study tips?
