How Can Teenagers Study Difficult Subjects?

As you may well know, so many difficult subjects abound. What is easy for you to study might be the most difficult subject for your friend. And as such, difficult subjects abound just as favourite subjects do. But then, we can all agree that some subjects are particularly dreaded by most students. Examples of these include Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry etc. And here is the thing- different students have different ways of coping with difficult subjects. While some simply hate it, others may find themselves ignoring it; procrastinating it. Worst still, some others may even try to forcefully study the difficult subject, a process that yields little result while causing lots of stress and frustration if I may add.

But not to worry; we’ve got your back! And that is why you are going to find below some Neuroscience-based tips on how to effectively study those difficult subjects. Please read on and learn please…

BRIEFLY SCAN THROUGH THE FIRST CHAPTER WITH SPECIAL FOCUS ON THE HEADINGS, SUBHEADINGS, AND ILLUSTRATIONS

This should enable you to visualize the entire chapter and think about everything the study entails. Doing this enables you to put your brain in the right frame to be receptive to the studying/learning process that is about to take place.

In other words, by scanning through the chapter and putting yourself in the right frame of mind for studying, what you are doing is to lay the neurological pathways in your brain which would enable you understand what you are about to learn.

FOCUS YOUR ATTENTION ON THE CONCEPT UNTIL THE INFORMATION IS CLEAR ENOUGH

 Assuming you are working Mathematics and a certain chapter includes problem samples with solutions shown, your job is to focus a bit more on the problems and try to correlate the solutions given to each of them. Also, try and understand the procedures for working out the solutions. And then, understand the procedures (if any) that is common to all the questions. By getting all of this information, it would be easiest for you to solve subsequent questions based on the topic. Now mind you, this may not be as easy to do as it sounds. But trust me, you can do it. When it seems as though you are simply not getting what the chapter is talking about, do not hesitate to pause, recall and reflect.

SPACE YOUR STUDIES AND YOUR PRACTICE

 The brain works in such a way that it needs alternating periods of exercise and recovery to enable it properly synthesize new information and ideas. That is why you need to spread your studies especially when studying difficult subjects.
