How To Study Well

Put God first

- Say a short prayer before every study session

- Focus and wisdom to be able to understand all concepts to be learnt

- Against all distractions - tiredness, social media

- Surrender all stress and worry

Organize your study time

- Schedule fixed timings to study

- Create a detailed daily to-do list e.g. list of chapters to revise, concepts to memorize, HBL videos to watch

- Keep it achievable! Accomplishing them helps keep you motivated!

Avoid social media at all costs while studying

- Turning your attention to social media causes you to have to re-read whatever you read right before you got distracted

- Doing this over and over = taking more time that’s needed to complete your work!

- This is harder than it sounds, but choosing to NOT open your social media when tempted - repeatedly… helps build your discipline

Study Smart

- Know what’s tested and how things are tested in your exams

- Revise exactly the way concepts would be tested

- Focus on important/tested topics

- Topics that are not tested but you’re interested in, leave it for post-exam/holidays

- Practise active recalling

- After making notes and reading through, move into active learning by asking questions and testing yourself!

- Start with understanding the concept, then explain it without referring to anything!

- If you're not able to answer it correctly, look back at the notes and see what you've missed out, then have a go at the question again!

- Do this for the different concepts that you have and it will be stuck in your long-term memory!

- Study by teaching

- Write down / explain the concept and pretend you are teaching it to someone! This highlights to you what you do / do not understand

- Review and look back at the source material, see what you've missed out, re-learn it and repeat this process until nothing is left out

- Minimize confusing wordings or languages. Find YOUR WAY to phrase concepts

Keep your motivation up


- Have ready snacks for the week - treat yourself to a snack after each/some tasks on your list through the day! You decide the frequency

- When feeling unmotivated, remind yourself of the results and rewards that would come, and the undesired outcomes too

- Write down your specific goals for each subject/module for your upcoming test/exam and paste it somewhere visible during your revision
