Studying Alone vs. Group Study ?

Every student has their own studying preferences and priorities; some prefer to immerse themselves in a certain environment, while others study best at certain times of the day. Creating a stress-free study environment is one way to improve your grades. Even so, there is still the question of who to study with: should you study alone or in a group study session? And how much of an impact will this have on your results?

One option isn’t necessarily better than the other. But one might be better for you. Maybe you prefer to study alone but retain more information if you’re part of a study group. Or maybe you enjoy the group dynamic but learn better in a quiet setting. No matter your learning style or preference, here are things to consider when deciding between studying alone or with a group of peers.

Studying alone…

alone

Minimizes distraction

You may find it hard to stay on track when your group gets together. The conversation shifts from course material to current events, maximizing distractions as the clock ticks away. Studying alone allows you to concentrate and minimize the disruptions that can keep you from retaining the material. It’s easier to avoid temptations when you work alone, meaning fewer interruptions.

Allows you to pace yourself

The ability to study in solitude allows you to give your complete and undivided attention to the study materials. You can work at your own pace, reading and rereading concepts and problems at a suitable speed for you. Give more and more focus to the information you’re struggling with, and you’ll be able to tackle your exam with confidence.

Improves focus

Sometimes study partners are not as knowledgeable as you are. Sometimes they want to spend hours studying a topic that you already know like the back of your hand. When you study on your own, you’re able to completely focus on the material you choose, and spend less time on material you’ve already mastered. That means you can spend your already limited time more wisely.

Group Study…

Increases retention

Verbalizing concepts and explaining material to others helps to reinforce ideas and improves your knowledge retention. The more you repeat the text, the stronger your memory will become. Group study offers the opportunity to hear information from others, too, which can serve you well should you have a large amount of material to cover.

Expands access to information

Group study allows for varied views, insights and information to be shared in one place. That sharing creates an open discussion and enhances your thinking skills. Students who study together tend to share notes and other class materials, building and broadening your understanding of the subject. This wealth of knowledge can mean you have more time to focus on key concepts, and spend less time stuck on one idea that has you hung up.

Boosts motivation

Group study time is a great opportunity for effective review. Create mock tests, quiz one another, and assist those who may be struggling with course material. Having a team that depends on you can increase your motivation and improve your focus because you’ll feel obliged to help everyone succeed.

Which do you prefer – solo or group study – and why? Tell us in the comments!

Top ten tips to crack CBSE board exams

As the CBSE board exams come closer to you, there is a sudden sense of nervousness. There is an urge to perform well in the board exams and excel. Almost every student wants to get a bright career by cracking the board exams and entering the desired college. Here are some of the most basic, but sure-shot tips to crack CBSE board exams:

1. Know your strengths and weaknesses

Design your preparation around these factors. You may have stronger subjects and weaker ones. Know about them and then plan your preparation.

2. Know your exam pattern in and out

Pick up past year question papers of CBSE boards and practice them. You will realize that there is a fixed pattern around which CBSE revolves. U-Like books are a great source for practicing previous year’s question papers.

3. Practice hard

As long as you are unable to answer every question perfectly, do not stop. Practice is the key to crack CBSE exams.

4. Make sure that every single thing in NCERT books is covered

NCERT books are CBSE’s favorite. Make sure that you study them in-depth and solve the questions at the end of chapters.

5. Have a disciplined routine

Do not wake up late or sleep late. Have a proper and strict schedule for yourself. If you haven’t been following a proper routine, your body will take a few days to adjust to the new disciplined routine.

6. Give your brain the vacant space

Just a few days before your board exams, do not over-stress yourself. Give free space to your brain. Let your mind relax and have some time for leisure and creative or productive activities.

7. Solve mock papers and question papers of other schools

Do not just focus on the question papers of your school. Ask the friends in your neighbourhood to give you their school question papers. Exchange yours with them. This will help all the students in practicing more and knowing about variety of questions.

8. Have a planned preparation

Prepare lists or sticky notes for useful reminders. Prepare a chart for important formulae and equations. Tick the topics that are well-studied. Double-tick the ones that have been revised several times. Try to target double ticks as much as you can.

9. Have shorter achievable targets

It is important that you have a goal-oriented study. For this, you should prepare your milestones. Make sure that these targets are achievable and realistic.

10. Spend more time with yourself instead of social media

Social media sites will distract you and will make you spend more time than required. Avoid chatting with people. Try to spend quality with yourself and make sure that you remain positive throughout the exam preparation.

With all these tips, you are definitely going to crack CBSE board exams. You will surely score more than 90% and reach your target destination- the college of your choice.
