Self Study – No one teaches you better than your own self

With an increasing number of new technologies and an expanding global population, self-studying is on the rise. Education is no longer confined to just the classroom, and some would argue that the classroom model is outdated and does not meet the intellectual needs of individuals in such an interconnected society. The exam season is approaching and no matter how good your teachers and friends are in terms of helping you with the preparations, the maximum one will learn and grasp is via self study. At Bhupindra International Public School, the focus is on holistic education and we believe that though consulting teachers for doubts and having group study sessions are important but all these are only helpful if a child is thorough with the concepts in his/her mind and that thoroughness only comes once the child has put in his/her individual effort in learning the subject.

Self-study is one of the most important things to do in order to prepare well for an examination. When you are studying by yourself you can actually take some time off and take a break in order to get back to your usual self as an average student gets tired in an hour or an hour and a half.  There are many different ways to learn, and it is important to adjust studying techniques to find what works for your brain. Some students find reading aloud helpful, others like taking handwritten notes rather than typing. Discover whatever works best for you, and stick with it. All you need to do is to, draft a schedule and start working towards your goal in a systematic method. Do not add up sky high study hours in your schedule as you are bound to lose track. Keep it straight forward and allot time to your subjects equally. Instead of treating your study session like a marathon, break up your material by topic into a series of short sessions, separated by short breaks. That way, you won’t be staring at your books or computer for too long while wearing on your focus and your brain can absorb the material more easily. While cramming may seem like a great way to cover a lot of material in a condensed amount of time, studying in short, frequent sessions is a more effective way to learn subject matter and self-study. Self studying may either be through books, online journals or tutorials but it is more effective than the conventional classroom learning for high and senior school students. 

There are various advantages of self-learning, some of them being:

  1. Helps a student broaden their thinking level
  2. Freedom of learning without any restrictions
  3. Students tend to build a sense of responsibility
  4. You can make study material of your own
  5. There’s no fear of criticism
  6. Helps developing good work ethics
  7. Students are able to tackle problems which in turn helps to boost their confidence

The ultimate method of self learning is so much more than just a way of learning. It releases your exclusive ability to tackle virtually any challenge, skill or subject, without regard to your current level of experience, and accomplish your goals even a when a formal instruction is unavailable.
