How do you become an excellent student and achieve academic success?

The secrets are simple

1. Plan your day.
  • Get a diary or use a special application.
  • Write down all the tasks you need to complete during the day.
  • Prioritize tasks.
  • Leave time for rest and extracurricular activities. ‍
2. Use the tomato method.
  • This method is to work for 25 minutes without a break, and then take a 5-minute break.
  • Repeat this cycle 4 times, then take a longer break for 20-30 minutes.
  • The tomato method helps to concentrate on work and avoid distractions.
3. Avoid procrastination.
  • Procrastination is putting things off for later.
  • To avoid procrastination, set realistic goals for yourself, break down large tasks into small ones and start working with the most difficult ones.
  • It is also important to remove from view anything that may distract you from work, such as your phone or computer.
4. Take breaks.
  • You can’t work without breaks.
  • Get up and move every 30-60 minutes.
  • Do exercises for the eyes.
  • Drink water.
5. Reward yourself.
  • When you complete the task, be sure to reward yourself.
  • It can be anything: delicious food, watching a movie, walking with friends.
6. Find your place to study.
  • It should be a quiet, well-lit place where no one will distract you.
  • Make sure that you have everything you need to study: textbooks, notebooks, pens, pencils.
7. Communicate with teachers. ️
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions in class.
  • If you don’t understand something, contact the teacher after the lesson.
  • Teachers are always ready to help their students. ‍‍
8. Use additional resources.
  • There are many free educational resources on the internet that can help you.
  • You can also sign up for additional classes or attend clubs in subjects that you are interested in.
9. Remember that learning is not boring.
  • Find something in your studies that you are interested in.
  • Learn new subjects, set goals for yourself and achieve them.
10. Believe in yourself!
  • You can achieve anything you want if you work hard and believe in yourself.

Goals help direct efforts and motivation in the right direction. Research shows that people who set goals achieve them 33% more often.

How to set goals correctly?

  1. Concreteness: The goals should be clear and precise. For example, “improve your math score from 3 to 4 in two months.”
  2. Measurability: You should be able to track progress. For example, regular homework and passing tests.
  3. Achievability: Goals must be realistic. Do not set a goal to get A’s in all subjects in one week if there were C’s before that.
  4. Relevance: The goal should be important and meaningful to you.
  5. Time constraints: Set deadlines for each goal.

Proper time allocation is the key to success. Students who plan their time do 20-30% more.

An example of an effective schedule:

Time Action
07:00 – 08:00 Morning routine, breakfast
08:00 – 14:00 School lessons
14:30 – 16:00 Homework
16:00 – 17:00 Break, walk
17:00 – 19:00 Additional classes, clubs
19:00 – 20:00 Dinner
20:00 – 21:00 Repetition of the material covered
21:00 – 22:00 Time for hobbies or recreation
22:00 Getting ready for bed

Active participation in the lessons 🏫

Students who actively participate in lessons memorize up to 70% more information. Active participation includes:

  • FAQ: Don’t be afraid to ask questions. This helps to clarify unclear points.
  • Taking notes: Keep detailed notes. Research shows that taking notes improves memorization by 34%.
  • Participation in discussions: Share your thoughts and listen to others. This develops critical thinking and understanding of the material.

Use of various resources 📚

There are many resources that can help with learning. Using different sources of information increases the understanding and memorization of the material by 25%.

Useful resources:

Regular repetition and practice 📝

Regular repetition is the key to long-term memorization. According to research, regular repetition of material at time intervals increases memorization by 60%.

Repetition methods:

  • Interval repetition: Repeat the material at certain time intervals (for example, after 1 day, 3 days, a week, a month).
  • Self-test: Use tests and quizzes to test your knowledge.
  • Explanation to others: Try to explain the material to another person. This helps to better understand and remember information.

Support and motivation 💪
