Eight Simple ‘Cheats’ To Academic Excellence



Hey there, adventurous knowledge seeker! If you’ve ever wished for a magic spell to make studying easier, you’re in for a treat.

We’re going into the world of study hacks—those sneaky tricks that’ll have you acing exams and breezing through assignments. Get ready to transform your study sessions from mid to marvelous!

The Power of Pomodoro

My fellow procrastinators! The Pomodoro Technique is your new best friend. Set a timer for 25 minutes of focused studying, then take a 5-minute break. Rinse and repeat. It’s like a productivity party for your brain! You get rewards for studying without the feeling of boredom or tiredness.

Notes: Revamped and Remarkable

Put down the highlighter and step away from the pages of endless notes. Try the Cornell Note-Taking Method instead. Divide your paper into sections for main points, cues, and a summary. Voila! Your notes just got a major upgrade. I use this for impromptu tests and quizzes, keep this a secret.

Mind Mapping Magic

If your brain feels like a tangled web of ideas, where you can’t even hold into a thought or know what you are thinking about, it’s time to mind map. Start with a central concept and branch out with related topics. Link the topics to items and create your study map around them. It’s like creating a visual roadmap of your knowledge. This may come in handy for students with ADHD as our minds are wired specifically and can be filled with tangled thoughts.

Teach Like a Pro

Ever heard that the best way to learn is to teach? Well, it’s true! Pretend you’re the professor and explain a concept to an imaginary class. You’ll be surprised how much this boosts your understanding. Talk to the wall or gather some friends and make a study group.  Whatever works for you, just make sure you are explaining everything to the clearest form of conversation.

The Good Old Flashcards:

Flashcards are classic for a reason and students from all around the world can testify to the amazing benefits they have. They’re like bite-sized bits of knowledge you can carry anywhere. Try using them for definitions, formulas, or key terms. These would come in handy for students who have a lot of definitions and formulas to get under their sleeves in a short time.

Rewrite the Story

If you have notes piled up, try rewriting them in your own words. This technique helps you process and retain information better. Plus, it’s like giving your brain a personalized, summarized study guide. Personalized your notes by adding examples that trigger your memory and makes it easier for you to remember.

Break It Down, Build It Up

Working on a massive project or essay? Break it into smaller tasks. Each time you complete one, you’ll get a burst of satisfaction. Section topics, formulas, questions together and handle them one at a time, going higher each time you complete a section would feel like leveling up in a video game—but with knowledge!

Naija-Style Mnemonics

Memory tricks are your secret weapon, and nothing beats a good old Naija-style mnemonic. Create rhymes, songs, or funny phrases to remember complex concepts. You’ll be amazed at how well they stick. Just like you did with the multiplication table in nursery school create fun things from your study and maybe those complex topics won’t be that complex anymore.

Alright, study superstar, you’re now armed with an arsenal of study hacks that’ll take your learning game to the next level. From Pomodoro bursts to mind mapping and rewriting notes, your study sessions are about to become an exciting adventure. Remember, these hacks are your passport to becoming a learning ninja, so go forth and conquer those books like the genius you are.

Happy “studython”
