Mid-Terms. The exams that we dread almost as much as Finals. When it comes to study, there are a few things that could be done in order to boost your concentration and your retention of he content that you are trying to memorize.
- If you absolutely need background noise of some kind, try either instrumental music or try ambient noise (if your surroundings don’t currently have this: i.e. birds chirping, rain & thunder storms, etc.). Reason being that when you are listening to either instrumental music or ambient noise, you are more inclined to not become distracted. If your music has lyrics: you will more often than not sing along. Or at the very least hum the tune.
- If you need absolute silence: This maybe the most obvious, but go to a location that doesn’t have a lot of people making an abundance of noise. I.e. Libraries, Griffin’s Nest (provided that there is no event/meeting going on up there)
- Finally, go outside: Enjoy the weather & soak up the sun. If there are no events going on, the Golden Meadow is a great place to be!
Until next time guys, stay classy!
