Studying at the right time helps us to understand better and also remember it for long.
I personally prefer to study during the early morning hours. But others find it better to study in the evening or late nights.
In the early hours, the mind is fresh and devoid of stress. Hence it is clear and in a receiving mode. Also, there will be little distractions due to silence around.
For some studying at night time works well as they find it distraction-free but the mind would be tired.
However, for students and young children, early morning would be good for a better memory.
But again it may vary from person to person. And some find it hard to not fall asleep during early morning hours.
So when is the Best Time to Study
This we advise based on the need to have a better memory of what we read and also for better scoring in the exam.
Early in the morning
If you cannot spend time in the evening, you can try so the next morning. Typically starting at 4 AM or 5 AM would be good.
The mind is refreshed and whatever you study, will be there for long in the memory. Also, you could find a few doubts which can be clarified the same day.
But many find it difficult to study in the early hours due to the force of sleep. You can overcome it by washing your face with hot water, having coffee, and also performing some hard exercises after waking up from sleep.
Immediately after class
One should read the subject covered by the teacher immediately after class.
This helps a lot in terms of understanding better and also remembering better.
But one may not find the time or sufficient strength to study due to tiredness.
In the evening after school
Once you go home, it is good to revise what you were taught in the morning. This helps to get a clear idea of the topic and if you find any doubts, you could clarify the next day.
Doing this on a regular basis has many benefits like you will be interested to attend the classes regularly, make notes, and understand the subject better. Further, you will not need to worry about the exams at the last moment as you will be prepared well due to this study.
After a week of completion of the topic
At the weekends one would have sufficient time. Spending a couple of hours would help revise the whole topics covered over the week.
This is the best way to add to your memory and you would feel very confident about the subject. You can easily understand better and prepare for exam fast.
But it is not that effective like the daily preparation.
Before a few days of the exam
If you have followed all the above methods, you would be less tense before the exam. Because you know what has to be revised and also from where to study.
You would not be busy collecting notes or burning midnight oil for it. You will revise with ease and think of possible questions that might appear in the exam.
Before the exam, you just need to revise and also go through a few topics which are hard more times to get a grip over them. Also, follow the same notes which you used before.
But if you did not follow any of the previous methods and try to study just before exams, it would be an inefficient effort as you can study well.
So, it is advised to study on a regular basis and not just before the exam alone.
