Why should I study?

No reasons to study, but a thousand reasons to learn.

Sorry, the English teacher in me takes over the semantics sometimes.

However, getting into the small details there are 2 ways of looking at studies. One is the dictionary meaning. You study something minutely to learn more information about a certain subject, topic or thing. And the traditional meaning, you read, understand and memorize subjects at school to pass the assessments given later so you can be called educated or matriculate. And if you continue to do that, you will be called graduate, post graduate, doctor, engineer etc.

Most people have good intentions and they will give you reasons to learn – not study. The point is, Why should you learn something you have no interest in?

You are going to choose a career and passion in life which will need certain knowledge which you may find boring at this point in time. For example you hate chemistry and the damned formulae you have to memorize, but if you want to become a textile engineer or something like that, it is a bitter pill you have to take since you will feel disabled without this necessary knowledge at a later stage. The same goes for those algebraic and geometry sums vis a vis architecture and civil engineering. Geometry & Physics may even help you if you want to become a great sculptor or artist.

So don’t look for reasons not to study. Choose your subjects according to your passions and make a very calculated choice. Take the help of experienced people in the field or similar fields you wish to pursue and make sure you study those subjects that are necessary. Today the Education Ministry has opened doorways to choose whatever combination of subjects you wish to pursue. So choose wisely and make your journey to success fun.

Tips to Study Effectively for Your Exams

s always make students nervous so it is better to start preparing in advance.  Instead of stressing out the key is to study effectively rather than do what everyone else is doing.

Here are some tips students can follow to top the exams and score excellent marks:

– First and foremost, study regularly. Last-minute preparation leads nowhere.

– Practise solving sample and mock test papers.

– Read from the text books. Most of the exam is set from these books.

– Ensure time management and allocate enough time for your studies.

– Practice writing as one will have to do a fair amount of writing during the exams. This practice will help students complete their exams well in time.

– Last but not the least, take out time to relax as well. Different individuals have different ways to relax – some do it by sleeping, some by playing, and others by watching TV/movies. Choose yours but remember, relaxation methods should not hamper your studies.
