Thoughts overcrowd my mind whenever I am trying to study and everything goes blank. If this keeps happening, then I am going to fail. Please help.

– Scared

Have a deadline before you start studying. Be very clear about what you will study and how much time you will take. Tell yourself: “I have to study and clear my exams, these are the chapters I will finish today no matter what.” Sit with a parent or sibling. Ask them to ask you questions from what you have learnt during the day.

My child is sleeping a lot during the day. He practically wastes the entire day. How will he clear the exams?

– Concerned

Parents should check their children’s daily time table and find out more about their personal preferences. What suits them – studying during the day or night? They should ensure that the child has at least six to seven hours of sleep in a 24-hour cycle. So, it might be okay for a child to sleep during the day and start studying in the afternoon.

How to study for business studies? It’s difficult to concentrate.

– Confused

Unlike other commerce subjects, business studies seems difficult because of the theory. Try breaking the information into parts, use mnemonics and flow charts to learn points and their sub-points. Take a 10-minute break after studying for 30 minutes and try recalling the information.
