I am a 1st-year college student and my finals are going to start from April 23, 2020.
That is the schedule, for now, don’t know if it will change due to the coronavirus because my college is in Maharashtra and it is the most affected state in India. Also, I don’t live in that state and I am just there to study. The state where I live in has no COVID-19 cases but still, the government had closed every public place to stop the spread. With that said let’s continue with my study schedule or how I study for finals.
I am a morning person and my focus and concentration is at its best during the day.
By, the morning I don’t mean 4:00 A.M study instead I wake up at 6:00 A.M then I go for a walk or I’ll just do some yoga inside my house.
I start studying at 7:00 A.M and my study timing changes every day, some days I am more productive and some days I am lazier. Some days I could study for 2-3 hours straight, other days I follow Pomodoro method which means I study for 30 minutes then take a 10 minutes break and then study again and then after 2 hours take a 30 minutes break. I usually study until 12:00 P.M.
I usually take shower at or after 12:00 P.M or so and then I help my mom with lunch (by help I mean just to sit there and talk to her) after that, I usually watch Youtube videos, Netflix, some movie, etc. I also take a 15-20 minutes nap (I am lazy kiddo)
I start studying again from 3:00 P.M to 6:00 or 6:30-ish P.M. Then, I grab a coffee and just be sitting idly, I love watching cartoons with my coffee.
I also don’t study after 7:00 P.M. I have this weird phobia that if I study more than 4-5 hours in a day, I would forget everything and create a mess. So, after 7:00 P.M. I usually read a book, plan my next day, write a blog, read some blogs, make plans and stuff like this.
I usually sleep at 11:00 P.M. Also, I have this weird power of waking up early in the morning and it doesn’t matter if I sleep at 11:00 P.M. or 3:00 A.M; I will still wake up happily at 6:00 A.M.
I know how I study and how you study might be different and that is okay. Everyone is unique and everyone have a different method to learn or memorise things.
