Passing tests are essential in a high schooler’s life. If you want to get anywhere you are going to have to pass multiple exams. Around 43% of the people taking a STAAR Test do not pass. This may be because they don’t have good studying habits. Here are some tips that you can use for future tests.
The first thing you should do is organize your workspace.
This means that you should make sure that you are studying in a neat place, not somewhere messy with papers everywhere.
Use old exams to practice on.
This allows you to see where your mistakes are and where you can improve on.
Organize study groups with friends.
Studying with friends is fun because it allows you to hang out and finish.
Overworking your brain won’t benefit you, because your brain will be exhausted of all the material you’re trying to cram into it.
Snack on brain food.
Some examples of brain food are:
Coffee- it helps you feel more alert because it blocks a neurotransmitter in the brain that makes you sleepy.
Blueberries- they can help you maintain brain function and improve memory.
Broccoli- it helps you strengthen cognitive abilities and improves your memory.
Dark Chocolate- increases blood flow and includes some caffeine.
Nuts- you have a better cognitive function, improvements in mood, enhanced memory, learning, and attention capacity.
