“Failing to prepare….you’re preparing to fail”
By making a study timetable, you will be preparing for success in your studies. Using a study timetable also enables you to visualize what you’ve got in your schedule for the day and across the week. Most importantly, preparing a study timetable will ensure that you don’t forget any upcoming exams or assessments. Doing well on an exam involves preparation, which means developing a schedule so that you can study material over time rather than the night before an exam. How can students put all those effective strategies together to develop a coherent study plan? Make a study schedule!A study plan is an effective way to help you navigate through your education, and hold you accountable for your own learning outcomes.
Planning a Better Study Schedule
When assessing your current schedule you should:
Tip 4: Plan enough time to study each subject depending on your priority list– Prepare a priority list based on how comfortable you are with the content in a particular subject. The content of the subject that you are not familiar with should be number 1 on your priority list.
Tip 5: Study at a set time and in a consistent place – Establishing habits of study is extremely important. Knowing what and when you are going to study saves a lot of time in making decisions and retracing your steps to get the necessary materials, etc. Avoid generalizations in your schedule, such as “study chemistry” at certain regular hours. Instead, plan to “complete ten equations” or “read and take notes on chapter 6 for Chemistry.” Treat your study time as you would a class: don’t miss it unless you’re sick, have a family emergency, etc. It should be a permanent part of your daily routine.
Tip 6: Study soon after your class – Time spent soon after a class, while it is still fresh in your mind, will help retain the content longer. By doing this, it will be easier to transfer memory from short-term to long-term.
Tip 7: Limit your study time to no more than 2 hours at a time – after 1-2 hours of study, you begin to tire easily and lose concentration. Taking a break and switching to another course will provide the change you require.
Tip 8: Trade time… Don’t steal it – When any unexpected event arises and clashes with the time you had allotted for studying, immediately decide where you can find time to study the same and put it on your schedule.
Tip 9: Make notes – write short phrases, annotations, etc. that help you remember the content with ease and recall faster.

Everyone ‘likes’ their school and thinks it’s the best school they have been to and some people don’t like the school they are in. Well, for me ‘EKYA’ is one of the best schools I have been to. It’s filled with joy, happiness and a lot of colours! The teachers in the school are so kind and respectful. My friends in the school are kind, sweet and funny. In the morning as soon as I get out of my bed I always look forward to going to school. In excitement, I quickly make my bed and get ready for school, and before I know it I am ready 20 minutes early. I am always ready to greet my teachers in the morning, I love to see my friends and teachers. My teachers always add colours to whatever they teach. My friends are always there for me. Ekya has changed my life and made it even better. I remember when I walked into Ekya for the first time. It was my entrance exam and seeing small kids playing in the playground, kids chatting, teachers teaching with a smile, kids learning happily, I was already in love with the school. The most important day was my first day of school. I was nervous and felt lonely because I was new. I cried, and I remember that the teachers were comforting me and my Principal made me sit in her office, talked to me, and comforted me. I remember on children’s day, the teachers made it so special with dance and we played so many games. I enjoyed that day and the children’s day was the best day of my life. I enjoyed building the science cell model last year in 6th grade, it was a fun activity and I learned different parts of the cell. In 5th-grade in visual arts class, we were asked to go around the school, look around and draw whatever attracted us. So, I enjoyed going around the school and I drew a tree and the P.E ground. This was a fun experience for me. I love Ekya because in this school the teachers, kids, and the Principal are very sweet. So if you have to choose a school then choose “EKYA BYRATHI”. I love you Ekya and you are like family to me!
Ekya is my school
We go to school by carpool
First, we go to preschool
Where we use materials as tools
So that we can learn things soon
I play, dance, paint and come back afternoon
My teachers treat each one as special one
Once we do things independently
Then we go to primary school
Where we have so many rules
My teachers are good
Because of corona I saw my teachers in Zoom
We attend classes in room
If we are naughty my teacher put us in waiting room
We meet our friends in Breakout room
I hope I will be back to my school soon
