We all at some time find ourselves overwhelmed with multiple subjects, not knowing how to create a study schedule, or how to manage our time in order to do justice to each and every one of them! We have shared some helpful tips for managing study time that have worked for us.
Studying is the act of devoting time and attention to gaining knowledge in multiple subjects.
Studying one subject is difficult enough but we expect children to learn 5 or more subjects and devote an equal amount of time to all of them. This creates confusion and indecision.
What subject should I study now?
Do I really need to revise this?
Trying to divide your time evenly among the subjects is difficult, to say the least. There is always something that could use more time. Fear not, for there is always a solution.
Here are some Tips for Management of Study Time for all Subjects!
- Spend more time on problem areas: not all children learn the same and not all subjects can be taught the same. This leads to the requirement for certain subjects to require more attention than others. (Recognizing the problem areas can be confusing sometimes, at AfterMySchool does this through Concept Evaluation Tests (CETs) which is a part of our DISCOVER Program.)
- Take well-placed and well-timed breaks: studying for too long might not have the desired effect on students. It often causes mental fatigue and makes it more difficult to learn later in the process. The solution to this is, taking well-placed breaks based on the amount of work to cover. Another crucial aspect of these breaks is that they must be well-timed. A break that lasts for too long ruins all the motivation to continue working while a break that is too short doesn’t really affect mental fatigue
- Do NOT overwork yourself: this step feeds into the last point about taking breaks. While working a lot seems a lot like a solution to not having time to study all subjects but overworking yourself often has the opposite effect where the subjects you start with getting more time while the subjects towards the end get no time
I hope these tips have helped you balance your study timetable. If these tips for managing study time aren’t enough, you can always sign up for our After School worK (ASK) Program or our DISCOVER Program to help you manage all your academics and aim only for the best!
