Concentration is just a set of actions that you follow regularly. The time period when you are studying for your target exam and no distraction can hamper your preparation. In this post, we’ll see strategies that you can use to improve your concentration in studies for JEE/ NEET preparation.
6 Tips to Improve Concentration in Studies for IIT JEE/ NEET Preparation
Here are the six tips that will improve your concentration in studies for JEE/ NEET.
- Set a schedule for your preparation.
- Stop procrastinating, build a study habit.
- Focus on small goals.
- Get back on track when you slip.
- Do your best study when you’re most alert.
- Take short breaks in long study hours.
1. Set a schedule for your preparation
Make sure your goals are clear (they can be short ones like finishing a topic or a chapter), and your plans are well thought out and most importantly, that you have a schedule for every day during your preparation.
For example, saying you want to study more from now on is unclear. Write it down as “I will study for 5 hours daily.” A schedule ensures you have a clear vision of what you need to do and this makes it easier to focus and actually perform the necessary actions.
2. Stop procrastinating, build a study habit
When there is something you need to do to achieve a goal, do it at once. Stop procrastinating. Often, it is the starting of the preparation that is difficult; once you begin, the actions just flow and before you know it, you are following a habit that is required to crack JEE/ NEET.
3. Focus on small goals
Having too many things to do is a sure fire recipe for a lack of focus – you start one topic or chapter, then your mind starts thinking of another which is not related to the current topic. This eats away at your time as well as your concentration.
Take up one topic at a time and focus on accomplishing the goals related to the topic; once that is over, move to the next topic in the syllabus.
4. Get back on track when you slip
You wake up early and study for about a week. Then, because you were awake late at night watching some movies or series, you “forget” to study the next day. It’s fine but don’t repeat it.
If you miss out on your schedule one day, make up for it the next day. Achieve your goals for the week as you planned.
5. Do your best study when you’re most alert
This will help you maximize your concentration. Identify your most productive hours by studying at various times in a day like early morning, day or night time. These hours will give you the best output.
6. Take short breaks in long study hours
Deactivating and reactivating your goals allows you to stay focused. When faced with long study hours, it is best to impose small breaks between study sessions. Small mental breaks will actually help you concentrate more in studies.
Breaks can be anything from going for a short walk, letting yourself daydream, or watching something you like. The point is to disengage from what you were doing. By breaking up your concentration, you’ll give your brain a chance to recharge so you can return to what you were doing refreshed.
I hope the above points will help in improving your concentration for JEE/ NEET preparation.
