Being a parent has many joyful and happy moments, but along with them one also faces a few stress full moments such as exams. In today’s competitive world, good grades are become very important if one wants to pursue the career of their choice and be able to follow further studies for the same. Your child can excel in his exams, with a little thought full planning and proper observance of the same. We share a few studying tips to help your child study better and in a proper planned manner, so that there are no last minute studying problems and stressful moments.

1. Make a monthly study schedule

Studying without a proper plan and timetable often leads to missing study sessions, last minute studies the day before the exams and even unfinished projects, due to which you eventually score low marks. Also due to last minute studies, you will also find yourself and your child getting stressed which the leads to getting very less studies actually done.

As one of our studying tips, we suggest making a proper, well planned study schedule very similar to the school timetable. You should plan the schedule in a manner, wherein all the tough subjects or test papers to be solved can be done on weekends. Similarly, the other subjects should be scheduled for normal school days, when there is also homework to be completed. It’s important to not get stressed if you can’t stick to the timetable or miss some sessions, as long as you are in control of things and are covering all the subjects adequately.

Keep updating your study plan every few days so that you can check how much you have finished and how much is left to do. Make sure, you also schedule some time for fun n games, so that your child can also refresh his mind.

2. Have a fixed study space

One of the most important studying tips we suggest, is to select a place in the house that is quiet and comfortable to study in or your child may feel distracted and not be able to concentrate on studies. Once you have selected the place to study in, make sure that there are distractions close by and not a place people keep passing by regularly. If there is a TV nearby, ensure that it is switched off when they are studying. Also keep your phone and laptop away, when you are teaching them so that you are not tempted to check it every few minutes, which will distract the child.

3. Organise and summarize the study materials

Before you start preparing your child’s study schedule it is important to organize all the study materials in an easy to access and manageable manner. Then you should organize the study sessions, as per the exam paper layout. This will help you to revise your studies more easily and also keep a specific focus on the questions with high marks. Do go through all the notes that your child has written in the school and other reference books, so that you can pick out all the important points so that and enable your child to understand the subject easily. If you do this on a daily basis, you won’t need to look for the meaning of difficult terms and words later.

One of the other good studying tips is to convert the most important information into a format that is very easy to read or understand for the child. This could be in the form of an audio recording, flash cards, diagrams etc.

4. Keep reviewing and revising

A much quoted but often neglected studying tip is to keep reviewing and revising the subjects periodically. Once you have covered the entire syllabus, start revising all the subjects, so that you ensure nothing is missed out. Covering important topics repeatedly helps in better understanding them and ensures your child does not forget them during the exam time.
