Having a schedule helps you stay organized and updated. Apart from a schedule keep your things organized as well. When everything is on place ie, your books, notebooks, stationaries you can become more effective and efficient.
Make clear and complete notes
One of the different things in high school is that teachers will not give you full notes like they used to in school. So you will have to learn to make your own notes. We have always seen nerd kids working in their notes in movies . They show it that way for a reason. You must have complete notes and updates. Make your own notes from book. Read and understand the paragraphs from book and write it down on your simple words. When we revise in home , make clear notes for yourself in your own language.
Stay away from distractions
When you sit for studying don’t get distracted by things. Keep your cell phone away and forget everything else while you are studying. Even if you are studying for 15 minutes, only focus on that .For some people music helps for concentration. A soothing music may help you stay focused.
The syllabus in high school is much tough and harsh. There is a lot to cover in very less period so you may get overwhelmed at first. But the simple trick is revising every day. Don’t forget everything you studied that day even just for hour. Once you revise you will get clear idea of the course and you will be updated with the study .Since you do it every day, you will not feel like you have to study a lot at a time.
Little revision everyday goes along way. Instead of piling up the course it is better to revise it every day so that if there is any confusion you can clear it the other day.Even if you had very tiring day , don’t skip revision. Once you freshen up, instead of spending your time on your cell phone, review the things you were taught that day.
Study in group
You will definitely make new friends in high school so it is better to study in group. Not just in exam you can study in groups once in while such that you will be able to discuss things timely. And also this will make your friendship more strong. The other benefit is that when you study in groups, it is less boring .
You can meet in someone’s house and then do group study. You can ask each other questions and learn from each other. If you are a good student then group study will make you even better. When we teach others we end up learning more. So group study is great deal for both good and average students. Group study encourages interactive environment. You can grow together.
Of course studying is important but make sure that this 2 years of your high school is memorable . Have fun and enjoy your high school days !
