You are an average scorer and you know you can do better in your exam marks. You know you have it in you but you don’t know what’s missing. You are confused about how to enhance your skills and get better scores in your tests. Worry no more! Qriyo is here to help you out and tell you what more you can do to be at the top of your class! Here are six things which can help you get those perfect scores –

### 1. PAY MORE ATTENTION IN CLASS

Don’t let your mind wander around in the class and do not miss your classes unnecessarily. Pay attention to what the teachers are teaching you and try to take running notes. Your brain has the capacity to retain things which you have been really concentrating on. So even if you do not have the time to revise later for your tests, there’s a high chance that you will remember the gist of what your teacher had taught in those classes and write something in your answer sheet. You can also go through your running notes and save time by paying more attention to other difficult topics or the topics that you have not covered yet.

## 2. REVISING AND SELF–STUDYING

### 3. USE SMART TRICKS

Mnemonics are memory devices or techniques which help you in learning and retaining things for a long period of time. You can use short forms while making notes (but be careful not to use them in exams) and you can device your own tricks to remember difficult things.

As for example, “Some People Have, Curly Black Hair, To Produce Beauty” can be used to remember your trigonometric formulae – S = P/H; C = B/H; T = P/B. (Where, S is sin, C is cos, T is tan, P is perpendicular, B is base and H is Hypotenuse).

Qriyo tutors can help teach you a lot more mnemonic devices like this and help you learn better and score more in your exams.

### 4. STUDY MORE AND WORK HARDER!

Pulling all-nighters before exams, last minute of rote learning isn’t going to help you ace those exams! You need to work harder, devote more time to your studies. You have to study every day and more frequently. Try to finish the day’s work on the same day itself. This way you would not have to finish a pile of work at one go. Fix a schedule for your week days and your weekends. Plan your syllabus accordingly. Allot time slots and days so that you can finish every subject within ample out of time. Do not start just the day before your test. Start early, finish your syllabus little by little every day so that you have ample amount of time for revision later. Assign yourself only that much amount of work which you are sure you would be able to finish.

Studying frequently does not mean that you have to work hard 24 hours a day. Make sure to take study breaks after every 30 – 45 minutes. Take a short stroll or listen to music between these breaks. Feel happy about what you are doing, take interest and reward yourself for what you have achieved. This will keep away the procrastination blues and help you aim higher.
