It does not really matter whether a group of students are the most active or smartest, but if they tend to be unorganized, it is possible that they won’t perform properly on tests. Organization skills should be essential in any studying and test taking tasks, as well as their everyday lives. The activity of taking notes is really important, but it can be time consuming so many students need to ensure that they are properly organized. It would be very difficult to consistently study from blurred, coffee-stained pages with so much wrinkles. The way students organize themselves can be a personal choice, however, one key factor is organization is ensuring that everything is accessible.
Studying is an activity that is the easiest to forget and ditch. So, after watching those football games on TV and gathering various social events it is quite easy for people to neglect studying. Studying is something that gets put easily on the back burner. It will be put off until students need it in the very last minute. This kind of studying style is not something ideal. First of all, students can already be tired and they really don’t feel like devoting much of our their mental effort in studying at all. Memorizing and understanding a topic requires a degree of determination and focus. Secondly, students can be really frustrated because it would be necessary for them to cram so much information. Thirdly, It is nearly impossible to study and fully grasp a month’s worth of detailed information in a couple of hours. This obvious fact has caused many students to immediately give up all hope and do other things to ease their anxiety. By properly prioritizing and finding ways to properly schedule time for studying, students can eliminate much of the frustration and near impossibility of studying the allegedly difficult topics. Cramming so much information the night before a test could actually be more detrimental than helpful or effective. This could cause much of the information to become jumbled causing much anxiety and stress. It is important for students to prioritize their plans in chronological order and it will be easy for them to implement their studying strategy.
Our brain is much like a huge computer that can categorize, classify and store so much information. When students study or enter an amount of information into the “internal computer”, it will be placed in a system of organic storage. Such a storage system can be accessed by the act of recalling. This way, the person may access any information needed during specific situations, such as a test. Student can boost their performance by understanding how their mind could store the information. Say that students are studying about plants and any information they get about plants could be associated with their daily experiences. This could relate to how plants adapt to seasonal changes.
If students make the link and assumption on this information, their brain could start to classify any information and they will be able to understand so much more.
