Today, competition in studies is increasing and college cut-offs are soaring high. So naturally, the best opportunities are given to only toppers. All students study really hard but only some get to become toppers. Most of the students are always just left wondering as to what is it that they lag, or what it is that toppers do differently? We will cover all of this in this article.
Rather than studying continuously for 8-10 hours a day, it is better if you take breaks after studying for 20-30 min. This gives a chance for the brain to retrieve the information in a better manner.
Even during exam time, we mentioned in our video “mistakes to not make in exams” that you should first go through the question paper, make your strategy and then attempt it. Full concentration and a strategy during the exam are very important for being a topper.
Testing yourself also strengthens your brain’s connections to new material, and gives you immediate and clear feedback on whether you know something or not. Bottom line, repeated self-testing significantly improves long-term retention of new material.
Instead, what you should be doing is – see where you made mistakes. Why couldn’t you score full marks? Was it because of a silly mistake, something you left studying or a misconception? You might actually also realize that you failed to understand a concept well if you look at your mistakes. Your aim should be to not make them again.
Top students ignore what they got right, and use their mistakes as an indicator of what to improve on.
