Another free Study Tip Students must study without distraction of mind. They must study a minimum of two hours to a maximum of four hours a day. They must make a habit of studying daily. They must have a definite place or a spot to study. Before studying they must meditate a minimum five minutes to maximum ten minutes. If they follow these suggestions, they will score very very good marks for sure. Try these and see the difference in you and your studies.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors Write some notes and read them the day of the examination to refresh your mind. Take some breaks between studies too. I find that reading aloud helps me to remember and I always read/ redo my work about 3 times. I listen to some ambient music like waterfalls or raindrops or classical music. This will help to relax your mind while studying.
