Very Easy but Very Lengthy

“I appeared yesterday for the respective exam. It was quite surprising for us to see the very easy Physics Exam! I myself had prepared hard for it but the exam was much lengthy especially 3 marks questions. I myself couldn’t attempt 10 marks which i had already realized were quite easy questions. But I  have to accept this disappointment now” – Shubham Dhingra

Want to learn fast? Be SMART!

 

In this busy world everyone wants to save time. Being students, learning is our primary job. To save time, we need to learn faster. But how?

 

The first step is to have a SMART goal!

 

S – Specific

 

Time Management

 

M – Measurable

 

A –  Achievable

 

R – realistic

 

T – Time Bound

 

Having a Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic and Time Bound – SMART goal will increase your efficiency to grasp ideas faster.

 

While all of you may be having a long term goal, usually what you want to become after studies, you should have a short term goal, an objecting for every sitting of your studies too.

 

Have a Time Table – be specific what to study and when.

 

In the time slot for each, decide what and how much to study before you start. Know the outcome expected of you as a result of reading the portion. If it is not mentioned already, it is better to have a look at the questions based on the portion at hand before you actually read the topic.

 

Learn to read fast. Don’t go word by word while you read. Try to grasp a group of words at a go concentrating on the idea contained. Concentrate fully keeping in mind the objectives/ the questions you read based on the portion.

 

Do not reread or skip back until you have completed

 

After you have completed the reading check your comprehension by answering the questions.

 

Practice this daily and try to improve your reading and comprehension skills. This will certainly help you to score more as well as to live well in times to come.

 

 

 

Critical thinking – An essential trait for excellence in competitive exams

Nowadays, the number of students asking genuine doubts are found decreasing day by day. the main reason behind this is the lack of critical thinking. Think deeply on things you learn, hear and see. find answers to the questions arising in your mind. If you develop the habit of critical thinking, it is certainly help you to excel in exams. As we discussed earlier, “Questioning every answer is more important than answering every question”

How to develop critical thinking?

An easy way to develop the habit of critical thinking is by solving puzzles – Sudoku, crossword puzzles, tiles rearrangement, chess and the like. Try solving the logical reasoning type questions, picture based puzzles and reasoning ability tests etc. asked in various competitive exams.

The logical reasoning tests are helpful not only to excel in cometitive exams, but it will help you in moul;ding your personality also.

I personally advice reading all the works on Sherloke holmes by sir arthur Conan Doyale. the way sherloke holmes comes to various copnclusions will certainly inspoire us in being a keen observer and a critical thinker and more over a great problem solver.
