Learning Skills : Can Make a Difference

With exams around the corner, students begin their race against time trying to cram all that they have learn during a year’s time in some days. Mugging up is an old form of learning. The competition is tougher now and syllabus, soaring.

Time is a merciless master, but a faithful servant if you know how to respect it! One of the main issues that students face while preparing for their exams is the constant fear of running out of time. At times like these, it is not only the speed of learning which is affected, but the ability to retain, recall, and transfer is also slowed down. Then how can we deal with this problem? This article offers a solution; the 10 most important tips to improve your learning skills, enabling students to become not only effective but also efficient.


Time Management

The first tip includes respecting time. You need to improve your focus and channel your time properly so that maximum time is utilized in learning.


Keep Practicing

The gray area of your brain, which is responsible for visual memory gets activated when you practice a thing over and over again. So, if you are learning something new, the best way to retain it would be to study it and rehearse it as many times as you can.


Try Different Learning Methods

If you want to retain what you have learned, then the ideal way would be to practice it again and again in different methods. Different or multiple methods will train your mind to effectively understand and efficiently learn a new concept.

How To Improve Learning Skills - How To Learn Effectively


Teach Someone

When you learn a new concept, try to explain it or teach it to someone else. This will make your brain retain more, clearly.


Relational Learning

When you want to move on to the next concept, try to relate information with what you have learnt earlier. This will not only help you to remember the previous chapters or concept, but also enable you to learn the new one properly.


Practical Learning

Putting into practice what you have learn will consolidate the knowledge in your brain. While most students rely on bookish knowledge, practical learning will actually clear your understanding.

Don’t Waste Time

At times, we do forget some details in the process of learning. Instead of struggling to remember them and wasting time, it is best to look up for the answers. Our brains take time to adapt to the new knowledge. Hence, don’t expect it to remember everything in one attempt. You will be able to remember everything only after constant practice.

Learning Habits

Monitor your learning habits and styles to understand better.


Studying alone will not help you retain everything. Test yourself after the end of every chapter and then rate yourself.


One Step At a Time

Instead of attempting giant steps by multitasking, stick to one step at a time. This removes the chances of errors and improves your learning and grasping capacity.
