Set Regents Study Goals
Before you begin the process of putting together your Regents Study Planner, you need to understand and set out your study goals. To be successful, your study goals need to be SMART. What we mean by that is:
Setting up a study planner will help you to focus on achieving your goals both short term and long term goals. The key to building a Regents Study Planner that works is to outline your study goals from the beginning. Your study goals are going to form the outline of how your Regents Study Planner takes shape. From there it is just a case of filling in the gaps.
Benefits of a Study Planner
One of the main reasons people create study planners is to achieve that feeling of accomplishment when a subject/ topic has been completed. The other thing about an ExamTime study planner is that it can be as fluid as you like. What that means is that if you have overdone it on a particular subject like English, you can switch to Math or Geography and amend your study planner accordingly. After all it is a digital study planner.
Committing to the idea of using a study planner means that you won’t ever have your entire subject curriculum hanging over you. Instead you are working away at mini-goals subject by subject. Below are 3 ways a study planner can help you:
1. Boost Motivation
2. Reduce Stress
3. Manage Workload
Use a Study Planner for Regents
Your Study Planner can be tailored in a way that works for you and only you. This is one of the beauties of the ExamTime study planner tool. Template study planners that have been handed out to students in the past have worked well, but they didn’t allow much room for flexibility. Having a flexible planner means that you can mould your time to fit your lifestyle while still being effective when applied to Regents revision.
Recognising that you need a study planner means that you have already made a great start to your Regents prep. Remember, you have a life outside of study also. Why not add your swimming practice schedule to the study planner or any other extracurricular activities you engage in. Thats what it is there for.
Take Regular Study Breaks
Do you feel stressed, tired and that no new information that is entering your head is sticking? Studying for hours on end is not always productive and rarely results in a positive outcome. This is exactly why a study planner is necessary. Unless you are very time sensitive, you may not be aware of when you are starting and finishing with a subject.
Taking regular study breaks and even exercising is proven to engage your brain in studying. It is also known to improve your exam performance in the long-run. Your study planner will let you know when enough is enough. Have you pencilled in English from 1pm to 3pm? Has the clock passed the hour mark? If so get up and go for a walk. You study planner will allow you to allocate slots of study time for each subject, the rest is free-time.Sign Up to Create a Study Planner
