Do you know why some people always top the class? Well, they are the ones who do not just depend on the robust and unorganized training and most of them follow some strategies in common. In the next 3-4 minutes, let’s have a look at all of them…
Make your first go, worth it.
Have you ever wondered about the extreme clarity that they possess?
The trick behind that is to get it right the first time when you learn the concept.
In this world of extreme globalization, we have many resources to learn. But we need to consume the content from the most reliable educator when we learn it for the first time.
Because once you are good with the concept the next time when you try to revise the concepts get stronger whereas once you are struck with any topic it takes so long to bring your brain out of that loop of confusion…
Follow your notes
This seems to be a difficult task to many out there as most of them lend the notes of others before the exams while preparing for the examinations… but that’s not at all a good move. Have you ever seen the topper lending the notes from others?
They usually don’t!
Because they do prepare their notes well in advance which will fetch them a good grip on the concept while preparation
Study smart not hard
Do you think toppers spend all the time studying and revising?
The answer to this question is a big NO.
If you wanna top the class you do not necessarily need to read all day. You just need to study smart. I know the immediate question that comes to your mind is “But, what do you mean by smart?”
A famous economist Vilfredo Pareto coined the famous Pareto’s Principle or 80:20 ratio. This is a great technique to use when we have too many things to do and we need to choose a few of them. So, according to Pareto’s principle – about 70-80% of your questions will come from 20- 30 percent of your syllabus. And toppers secretly find out what that 20-30% most important component is. Haha!! Hold on guys, I did not mean that toppers do have a secret agent in the examination department who is likely to send them the important topics. They analyze the past year’s question papers and come to a conclusion about what all topics they need to cover inorder to score well.
Wrap before you sleep
Have you ever wondered about the way toppers respond in class?
Yeah! You are right, even that has a small trick behind it, they do rewind everything that happens in the class before hitting the bed which helps them to actively participate in the discussion of the next class…
Sometimes, they even end up having dreams wherein they answer all the questions in the upcoming class. Isn’t that interesting? Let’s move on to the next strategy.
Take a pause
Have you ever experienced that you forget the previous topic in quest of learning the new?
Oh! My dear, you are not the only one facing this problem. Our brains require some sort of time to process and link the information that we load into them. But the biggest mistake that we make is not giving our brain enough time to process.
We need to take a pause after reading each and every topic and make sure that the previous topics are linked with the present one.
Stop being tedious
Ok, I understand! study itself is tedious for most of them out there.
But this is the time that you need to change your thought process.
Most of the researches shows that people remember humorous things more vividly and for a longer duration of time due to less amount of anxiety and reduced negative emotions. So, try to interlink the concepts with some humorous stuff which will help you in retaining the concept for a longer time.
I hope, this article brought you insights about the strategies followed by all the toppers, and now it’s time to take action as just looking at things doesn’t make any significant change…
Now it’s time for dynamic moves…
