The jaw-dropping academic success of top performers often hinges on 5 secret study methods used by these toppers who are ordinary students just like you. Many top-performing students are not as special brains as you may think. Their study methods make all the difference and the No. 5 will study method they use which I will disclose in this write-up will surely surprise you.
What are the 5 secret study methods of toppers?
1. The first of the five study methods used by the best students is what I call, Right First Time
Research has proven that, when a student learns a new topic or concept for the first time, the chances of doing well are high. This trick is not just about the location or place, but rather more related to who taught the concept and how well it was taught the first time. If whoever teaches you a concept or topic for the first time fails to do a good job, you can get confused. This confusion can stay with you regarding the topic or subject forever. It is rather unfortunate that you cannot choose your teacher for a given subject.
And once confusion has entered the mind, it tends to stay there for quite some time. So, if you’re learning a new notion for the first time, learn it from the most trustworthy instructor you can find, whoever or whatever that is. This will offer you perfect clarity from the start, and each rewrite will just strengthen it.
However, you can choose the right person to deal with the confusion in your mind. Get teachers or friends who have understood the concept or topic to take you through it all over again, then ask them to permit to you teach it back to them for their assessment. Be confident to stand in front of your colleagues to explain the concept, and do not be scared to make mistakes.
2. The 2nd of the 5 secret study methods of toppers is that they stick to their notes
When learning a topic or subject, we all often make our own notes. The notes we make are based on our understanding of the concepts. We write the summarized understanding in our own words and in English. Once we pick them up and begin to read, the thoughts begin to process. This is also one of the 5 secret study methods of toppers. What many students do wrong is that, sometimes, they leave the well-prepared study notes they understand and begin to read that of another student. This can create serious confusion in your mind. It is very dangerous to make such a move at the last minute of your preparation for an impending examination. Stick to your notes if you are to avoid confusion and stay on track.
We tend to get caught up in the bustling stream of swapping notes, scanning, and sharing notes in group chats at the last minute. Now, here’s a top-secret study tip: from the beginning of the year, they adhere to their own notes, which they wrote themselves, and they never let someone else’s writing style confuse them.
I advise you to start preparing your notes early. Make good use of your highlighters in your notes, do your own summarized notes, and get help at the early stage, but do not ever throw your notes away for that of another student at the last hour. Revise the notes you have made multiple times and keep improving on them.
3. Master the act of quick night revisions before bed
Often, the things you learn at night can replay in your mind even when you are at sleep. I have experienced situations where at dawn, while still in bed, the things I learned at night begin to play back the moment I start to remember them. This is the power of the brain you have. Do not forget to revise your notes very often. Do so at night, at dawn, or early in the mornings depending on what works best for you. Space the revision and do not revise the same thing all the time. It makes no sense to keep relearning the same topic you have mastered when there are others to cover.
What we read now is likely to be forgotten tomorrow. Top students understand that spaced review is the key to effective memorization. But there’s still plenty to learn if we just keep revising what we’ve already learned, how will we ever finish our syllabus? After all, how is revision a secret when everyone knows about it?
You need to master the skills of doing a quick revision and make it part of your learning style. Your summarized notes would help make this a very good exercise.
Do this for me if you do not feel like doing it for yourself. Before going to bed, make it a practice to open your notes and read through them for 10 minutes. While you sleep, your subconscious brain will accomplish all the hard work, and you will have a solid remembrance the next morning.
4. Secret No. 4 is the use of Pareto’s Principle
Students who make great grades in examinations are not the best brains in the class. There are so-called weak students with the best brains, yet they fail to tap into the power of their brain. Every student including you who is reading this article on 5 secret study methods of toppers can make good grades using the Pareto Principle.
The famous Pareto’s Principle, or 80:20 ratio, was coined by a notable economist, Vilfredo Pareto. This is an excellent method to employ when we have too many things to do and need to narrow them down to a few. This is an excellent method to employ when we have too many things to accomplish and need to narrow them down to a few.
A topper is not necessarily the person with the most knowledge, but definitely someone who knows how to write the best answers in an examination. A famous economist Vilfredo Pareto coined the famous Pareto’s Principle or 80:20 ratio.
The principle explains that 20-30 percent of the syllabus will be in the examination and that the best students who are ready for the examination get to know the top 30 likely content in the syllabus to be examined. These students spend time analysing past questions and related topics. By going through this, the students are able to get a clear idea about topics that are more likely to be examined.
In reality, one common misconception is that top students study longer hours than typical students — Pareto’s principle enables them to Study Smart, Not Hard.
5. Close your book
Do not turn yourself into a smart newly built machine from the production plant by going all out to learn every minute. Naaa, give your brain a break and a treat.
This is the most surprising hidden tip among the 5 secret study methods of toppers. When you permit the brain to breathe in a little, it helps it to digest information much better. This implies that when we study with an open book, our brain is constantly bombarded with fresh information and has very little time to digest it. After learning for a while, close the book, my learner. I say, close the book. If you read a topic and then close the book and try to think about it, try to process and test your understanding of the concept. This will help the brain to connect different other concepts to form definite knowledge. So, relax your thoughts a little and let the magic happen.
