The Ideal Study Schedule to Prepare for Upcoming Exams

The outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic forced the government to reschedule a few important exams. Board exams for classes 10 and 12 and the JEE and NEET exams were rescheduled. Unfortunately, the ongoing lockdown has compelled children to learn how to study at home. Instead of traditional classrooms, students are studying with the help of online courses. But, making the shift to online learning can be very difficult. The most important thing to do is create a schedule and then stick to it.

If you’re studying for an upcoming exam, especially the JEE or NEET, we can help you prepare. Here’s a look at how you can create the perfect study schedule:

Understand How Long You Need to Study For

Study tips for Students

Just because you are at home all day doesn’t mean you have to sit with your study material 24/7. According to experts, you should spend a maximum of four hours a day studying. Additionally, you shouldn’t study for more than 50 minutes at a stretch.

Start with a Warm-up

A warm-up is generally associated with sports, but it’s important while studying, too. Spend 15 to 30 minutes at the start of your day doing something that will wake up your brain. You could read a book, do something creative or even exercise. You can also use a warm-up period after your lunch break to get things going again.

Split Up Your Study Sessions

Once you’re all warmed up, it’s time to start studying. You can split your time into two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon. You can break each two-hour chunk into three or four study sessions. You can tackle a different subject or concept in each session. Schedule 15-minute breaks between study sessions where you walk around the house, enjoy a snack or talk to your friends.

Let Your Evenings Be About Practice

While preparing for an exam, it’s important to familiarise yourself with the paper format. The best way to do this is by completing practice tests in the evening. If you’re preparing for the upcoming JEE and NEET exams, you can visit the TG Campus website to download the previous years’ papers. We also have a series of mock tests that you can do during this time to brush up on the study material.

Stick to Your Schedule

To make sure you keep your exam preparation and revision on track, you need to follow the schedule every weekday. This will help you get into a routine that is easy to stick to. In case you need it, here’s a sample schedule you can follow while preparing for the upcoming JEE exams:
