With NEET & JEE 2020 exams around the corner, the Rizee team crafted Top 5 Techniques to Sharpen your Memory. Use these techniques to remember things effectively and enhance your overall performance
1. Visualize: The human brain remembers images better than verbal or written information. Images are concrete while raw information is often abstract. With the visualisation technique you convert information into easy-to-remember pictures. In simple words, while studying try to visualise everything in the form of images, diagrams. This will sharpen your memory and help you recall them later.
With the Free 3 -Day trial, explore the modules on Rizee app with diagrams, tables, classifications that’ll enable easy visualization.
2. Use associations: Association is a powerful memory aid. You might’ve experienced the feeling of something triggering a memory of something else. It is easier to recall things that have an association with something familiar. While studying, try to associate concepts with something you are familiar with for easy retrieval when needed.
3. Flashcards: Flashcards are a fantastic way to break heavy content into smaller chunks and test yourself on your knowledge. They promote studying through active recall, which is one of the practices through which our brain learns most effectively. Usually, students devote a lot of time to reading and revising the whole information again and again. Flash cards, on the other hand, focus on important information and are proven to be excellent memory reinforcement tools. Moreover, with many online flashcard apps these days like Quizlet, FlashCardMachine, StudyBlue, you can use them at any point of time like when you’re travelling etc.
4. Teach it to someone else: “While we teach, we learn,” said the Roman philosopher Seneca. One of the best ways to learn is by teaching someone else. When you take up the responsibility to teach someone else, you work harder to understand the material, recall it more accurately and apply it more effectively. When you’re expecting to teach, your brain organizes the information in a more logical, coherent structure. Even if you don’t have any person around you to teach, try to teach yourself in front of the mirror or record a message explaining the concept.
5. Practice: Last but not least – Practice, practice, practice. The more you practice, the more you will remember and for a greater time. Especially, practicing sample tests puts your brain in an actual exam-like environment. It will help you analyse mistakes and identify gaps in your knowledge and boost your confidence.
Crack your NEET & JEE with flying colours..!
