so in today’s video I’m gonna give you 5
things 1 a complete 30 day study plan including a detailed subject wise break
up. 2. some alternate plans so you can design your own favorite plan 3 a
detailed hour-by-hour breakup of our individual study sessions so you make
the most of the limited time next up you know to get some smart study tips and
finally at the end of the video 5 bonus tips including Thomas Edison’s secret
study tips so let’s get going Happy watching hey this is Chetna and you’re watching
ChetChat I’d like to thank our sponsors for this episode WEExpo India they are
hosting India’s largest World Education Expo on August 7 8 9 2020 at Coimbatore
Tamil Nadu here you’ll get to interact with some of the world’s biggest
educators and get guidance on your career over the next decade
you could learn new skills and get exposure to upcoming careers and what’s
more I’ll be attending the WEExpo India 2020 as well so see you there and
now let’s get down to the complete study plan to help us complete our syllabus in
a short time now here we have three days for subject
one three days for subject two and one day for revision this makes a complete
week and just like this we have four more weeks which gives us eight subjects
and overall 28 days the last two days are for practice tests now I have
assumed eight subjects and 30 days you may have more or less days or more or
less subjects and I’m going to also help you customize this plan to make it your
perfect personal plan now let’s drill down a little further we have three days
per subject but what do we need to study in these three days now you know that
thirty to forty percent of your syllabus gets you 70 to 80 percent of your marks
this is the time for us to find out what is that core that gets us 70 to 80
percent of our marks so day one first half we’re gonna analyze our past papers
you may have access to five-year papers or ten year papers and here are the three
things you need to look for when you’re going through those papers the first is
the paper pattern now look at each paper to see how does it typically start what
are the number of questions how many multiple-choice questions how many long
answer types how many short answers but just take a look at the entire paper
pattern and over the ten years or five years whatever you have you will know
the similarities now examiner’s are not as creative as we think they are chances
are your paper this year would look pretty much like the papers in the
previous years the second thing you want to look at is which chapters are these
questions coming from so take your syllabus and every time you spot a
question go and Mark it against the chapter number now you can use codes
like m for mcqs s for short answer types l for long answer types and the third
thing you want to look at is the mark scheme or the answer sheets now you want
to focus on key words / high-frequency words and also looking at the answers
and the structuring how exactly do they want that answer to be structured how
are the marks broken up between the different parameters
or part of that answer now once you finished analyzing the past papers you
will find your stress levels considerably reduced because now you
know exactly what to focus on day one second half and day two entirely is for
revision of those important concepts now later on in the video I’m going to give
you a detail hour-by-hour timetable of how to plan these days and day three is
for past paper practice and for noting down all the topics that need further
revision now repeat this pattern for all eight subjects and the revision day that
appears break it up into two halves for the two separate subjects now that
broadly completes a 28 day plan for us and before I get down to how we are
going to structure those last two days let me give you a smart study tip now we
need to prioritize important topics first don’t start doing the topics in
serial order of the chapters in your textbook now talking about those last
two days of revision this is when you need to do practice papers under exam
conditions at exactly the same time at which your exam is going to be conducted
once I had an exam at 3 in the afternoon and that was the exact time that I used
to take a nap so it’s important for you on these two days to sit on a chair and
table keep a water bottle next to you set a timer but keep your phone outside
the room and just cut out all distractions and complete that entire
paper in one go now imagine you’re the sort of person
who doesn’t like to study one subject for three full days you can do half a
day or one subject half a day of another subject for all the six days
alternatively you can do subject one and two for three days
subject three and four for three days and in the next week reverse it should I
allocate an equal amount of time to every subject one of the tips that I can
give you is go look at your exam timetable sometimes we find that there’s
like six or seven days before one particular subject and two subjects are
back-to-back on the same day the smart study tip here is that once you’ve
allocated the number of days for a subject stop don’t keep doing one
subject for eight or nine days and then discover that you have no time to study
anything else plan number three what if you want to study multiple subjects on
one day and you feel that’s what works for you there are typically three kinds
of subjects numerical based subjects which is typically math and physics etc
memory based subjects which are biology history geography interpretation based
subjects for example literature now if I were a morning type of person then I
would do the most challenging subject first thing in the morning I would do a
numerical subject typically in the afternoon if that’s the time that I tend
to feel sleepy and the memory based subjects should always be done later on
in the evening just before bedtime so that that concept stays in our
subconscious mind and when we sleep it moves from our short-term memory into
our long-term memory now what if you’re not a morning person and the time that
you’re the most cheerful during the day is actually the afternoon then I would
just swap that around and first thing in the morning when you’re sleepy I would
do the numerical subjects and in the afternoon when you’re all perked up I
would do that most challenging or difficult subject and the memory based
subjects I would always keep for the evening just before going to bed smart
study tip is to set goals for each session know what you want to complete
otherwise we could be studying for two hours and not
achieve anything this is crunch time organization is
crucial and plan plan plan is the mantra now we already have a video on the
channel called the perfect timetable to follow before exam time I’m going to
drop a link to that under the video but the smart study tip is to study in an 8
8 8 rule study for 8 hours sleep for 8 hours and the last 8 hours is to bathe,
feed spend time with family exercise and relax now I know wait wait I know you’re
thinking it’s not possible because the trouble is that we study for 12 and 14
hours a day but we are not really focused and a word of caution here do
not cut back on sleep because that is going to negatively affect your
performance now smart study tip is to reward yourself for every powerful hour
of work give yourself a break take a favorite treat and put a golden star on
the planner to tell yourself that you are doing a great job
now you’re studying a lot of new material during this last period just
before the exam and the fear is that you might forget some of the earlier stuff
so what I’m going to tell you now is going to help you study the new material
as well as simultaneously revise what you’ve studied earlier so on day one
spend time studying the first chunk of the most important topic on day 2 study
the second chunk of the second most important topic and go back and revise
the first topic so on till day number 5 where you finally take a test now I have
given you day 1 day 2 day 3 as examples you can use two of these slots on the
same day itself the key thing here is that while you’re gaining new
information we need to go back and keep reviewing the earlier information to
shift that from the short-term memory into the long-term memory one is attitude now don’t panic just
because you have a few days left for your exams we have the power of a great
planner and a super timetable so aim high remain positive and stay calm 2. is
take frequent breaks it is said that Thomas Edison every time he encountered
a difficult problem went to sleep on his couch with a pair of heavy keys in his
hand and whenever he fell off to sleep those keys fell to the ground and woke
him up and during that break period his subconscious mind could work on the
problem and he got many great ideas 3. is company matters hang out with
stoppers and hard-working students and their dedication and enthusiasm will rub
off on you bonus tip number 4. is to eat well with greens and proteins and
drink a lot of water and bonus tip number 5 is keep away from
distractions there’s just one month remaining so keep that phone away and
don’t forget to press the subscribe button and the Bell icon right next to
it and also give us a thumbs up because that motivates us to make more such
videos for you and happy watching
