How to Make a Perfect Study Plan
The secret of success for most students is their consistent hard work and well-organised study plan. Students who score good marks in their academics follow the study plan to achieve their goals. Creating a good study plan is an integral part of the study process. It keeps students organised and helps them to keep track of what they have studied.
From early classes, students must start building a habit of creating a study plan. As the classes become higher, the syllabus increases and students have more subjects and books to study. So, it’s better to start studying in an organised and structured way from CBSE Class 8. Studying without a proper study plan is similar to doing work without having any goals. If students have a set deadline, then it will be easier for them to track their performance. So, here we have provided some useful tips for making a good study plan.
It will be easier for students to design the study plan if they know what they want to achieve. The short term goals may include the class test, finishing a chapter of a particular subject, study schedule for a week, etc. Whereas the long term goals consist of the summative assessment tests, half-yearly and annual exam preparation. They must make sure how much time they have to complete short and long term goals. Depending upon it, students must create the study plan.
Each subject needs to be studied in a different way. The language subjects such as English and Hindi are easy to study and do not require much time. On the other hand, subjects like Maths and Science need more time as they are based on concepts and requires more practice. Students who want to take science stream in class 11 must focus on Maths and Science from CBSE Class 9 itself. A subject like social science is moderate but equally important for scoring good marks.
As students have identified the method of studying their subjects, now the next step is to select the topics from each subject and prioritize them. For selecting the topics it’s better to choose those topics which are recently taught in the class.
Make a weekly study schedule. Allocate the time needed to complete each topic of different subjects in a week. Students must assign the timing as per their convenience which they can follow regularly. Early mornings and night timings can be effectively used if planned in a proper way. Make sure that the study schedule is not too hectic. Keep some time aside for playing and breaks as well.
Just making the study plan will not do any miracle to students. They need to follow it and be consistent with their studies. Initially, for a few days, it may be difficult to follow the study plan, but after some time, it will become a daily routine. So, students must not feel disappointed in the initial days if they fail to follow the study plan.
