Title: What are the tips for academic skills


1
Habits for Improving Academic Skills
2
Successful what does that mean for a student?
Acquiring the highest academic degree? Getting a
high-paying job? Is that all? Think again. Only
acquiring a degree or landing a high-paying job
does not fetch you the status of being
successful. You need to earn success. For that,
you need to develop academic skills that
potential employers want to see in you. Time
management, ability to concentrate and skills to
apply your learned knowledge rank on top of this
list. If you are still in dilemma whether you
have mastered these skills or not, this is the
right time to make an effort. It is not an uphill
task. You just have to adopt few good habits that
will help you achieve your goals.

?For managing time
4
Time and tide wait for none It is true in
every sense of the word. An individual should
understand the value of time in order to attain
success in all aspects of life. To use time in
your favour, you need to develop a few habits in
your personal life
5
1- Planning is key
Most of the students get on with a task without
planning further. In no time, they either feel
confused and lazy to do the task. So planning is
important. It is true that it will take time. But
in reality, it will save time for you. If you are
not good at planning, one trick you can use is
writing down what do you have to do and tick off
each task as you complete
6
2- Set your own deadline
Each academic task comes with a deadline. To use
time properly, set a deadline before the actual
deadline. It is taking control of your work. When
you finish the task on your deadline, you get
plenty of time to revise the task or make changes
in the task. It not only enhances the quality of
the work, but also gives you ample amount of time
to assess your work. Alternatively, you can hire
professional assignment assistance services to
complete the work before the deadline.
7
3- Buy a planner or set alarms
It only takes a few minutes of your time. You
mark important dates on the planner and carry it
with you. If you fear you will not forget to
check the planner, then set alarms. With the help
of your Smartphone, you can trigger the alarm
against the set deadline. To be on the safer
side, mark the date before the deadline and set a
reminder on your phone
8
4- Prioritize your tasks
Many students would say, I do it all the time.
But are they doing it correctly? Many students
make the mistakes of attempting to complete
several tasks at a time because they think they
are equally important. But it actually reduces
your productivity. So make a to-do-list. Write
the task on the top you want to complete ASAP,
then so on. So to get the best result, you need
to stick to the to-do-list.

5- Buy organizers and arrange important things
properly
To save time and energy, you need to be
organized. Maintain files for each assignment and
keep in their respective drawers. Buy organizers
for keeping things at their places, like pen,
pencil, clips, markers, and other stationery
products. Staple important documents and put them
into a proper folder. If you become little
organized, it will save time that spends on
unnecessary searching.
10
?For improving focus
11
You are reading notes, suddenly you remember how
beautiful your best friends earring. It is
called lack of concentration. You are not focused
enough on the task. In order to improve focus,
here are a few things you can do to enhance your
mental performance.
12
6- Solve puzzles
Solving a puzzle involves you in a process. You
get the chance to give your brain a workout. It
stimulates your brain and helps it grow. If you
do it regularly, you will be able to improve your
focus and concentration.
13
7- Do some physical exercises
Physical exercises help your brain stay sharp. It
increases oxygen in the brain and reduces the
possibilities of memory loss. Researchers say
aerobic exercises are good for the brain. So take
out time for exercising. Give 10 minutes every
day for physical exercises. You can hit the
college gym or do it in your dorm rooms.
14
8- Focus on relationships
Many studies have pointed out that a life full of
friends comes with cognitive benefits. Yes, we
have heard our parents say it spending time
with friends is a distraction. But science shows
a different aspect. Human beings are social
animals. Developing relationships with other
people stimulates our brains. Researchers say,
having friendships and a strong support system
are significant, not only for maintaining
emotional balance, but also mental health.
15
9- Manage stress
90 college students are affected by chronic
stress. Over time, stress can damage your brain
cells. Many studies found the relation between
stress and memory loss. So you need to keep your
stress in check. In order to do so, you need to
use a few stress-busting methods like meditation.
Meditation is known to be the most effective way
to improve focus. If you feel overwhelmed with
the academic pressure, you can avail assignment
writing services to get rid of academic writing
stress.
16
10- Follow brain-boosting diet
Similar to your body, your brain also needs fuel.
Food like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean
protein will provide you a lot of benefits like
improving focus and memory. So, you need to
involve a few food items like green tea, walnuts,
ground flax seed, kidney and pinto beans,
broccoli, spinach, pumpkin seeds, tuna, mackerel
in your diet.
17
?For applying learned knowledge
18
Students are mainly judged on how well they can
apply learned knowledge into practice. Once
students learn a new concept, theory or even
idea, they are typically asked to apply it
through assignments, projects and examinations.
Students are likely to get poor grades if they
fail to do so. It is true that if you dont want
to be one of them, you need to involve a few new
habits in your life
19
11- Use visual learning style
Visualization is a good strategy for helping
students in learning. Whenever you see an image
of what you are learning or a video on the
concept, you use those images and videos to store
the learning concept or idea in your brain.
Studies say images and video make more impact
compared to the text.
20
12- Take up mock tests
Mock tests help you assess what you have learned
so far. Before every examination, take out time
for mock tests. You need to set a paper by
following the pattern of the exam paper. Then
allocate time to complete the paper. It is best
that you give yourself less time compared to the
actual exam period. Be true to yourself while
grading the paper.
21
13- Analyze a text
In college, students are assessed on how well
they apply their analytical skills in presenting
ideas. Most of the students struggle to showcase
their critical thinking skills. Needless to say,
college coursework comprises enough assignments
you dont need another one to add on to your
burden. But while working on an assignment, make
use of your analytical skills. While researching
or taking notes, find reasons why you want to
support someones view or defy it. In this way,
you will be able to apply learned knowledge into
practice.
22
14- Break the monotony of the life
Sometimes, studying all the time can be
paralyzing. Spending hours in the library or
hovering over the books for hours can lead you to
saturated life. You need to break the monotony of
the life, like going out, meeting new people, and
hanging out with friends. You may ask what is the
relation between meeting new people and applying
learned knowledge. It just takes you away from
the inner monologue.
23
15- Know yourself
In order to perform, you need to understand your
strengths. You need to identify what triggers
work for you. It can be simply listening to music
or even finding a quiet place of work. You need
to test yourself in every situation in order to
understand what is best for you. If you stay feel
all motivated and productive in the first half of
the day, try to complete critical and crucial
tasks in morning.
24
16- Decide your work approach
The stages between knowing and applying
require a pause. You need to adopt new ideas, new
approaches and new skills to apply learned
knowledge. You need to step back, reflect,
internalize and consciously decide which strategy
and skills to use to attain success. Learning
does not end with college life. It goes on, as
you grow older. Making accustomed with the most
effective study techniques is one of the greatest
gifts that you can give to yourself.
