as you all know that i was giving my exams and was out from mylot for a few days. When i was preparing for my exams i felt that there are 2 species of students in this world : 1. Those who studies all the year and an average amount a day. 2. Those who enjoys the whole year and studies double time the last few days before the exam. I am of the 2nd kind . I dont know which one is good and which one is bad . But i know i enjoy my life, now the question that haunted me was what kind are my friends? So which stratagy do you follow?

I'm the second type of student. Next week are my midyear exams and I still haven't started studying :P I don't really play the whole year because I pay attention in class and consistently get good grades for tests and quizzes without studying, but I just can't bring myself to start reading my books a few weeks before major exams. I think there are many more types of students, like those who don't study and get really high marks, and those who do study very hard but have trouble passing, those who do nothing but study, those who study only in secret, teacher's pets, and so on. After all, students are still people, and there are many many types of people in the world.

i am the second type as well and i believe we are the majority. I enjoy my uni life because i know that after uni its all work and work is 10 hours a day and 5 days a week of hard, responsible, life-threatening, career-threatening serious work. so i want to enjoy my life at least once in my life before i die from working too hard. unfortunately, this semester i cannot say the same for - i had to work from assignments just as hard as i normally do during the study period before exams; and in the one week's study period - i had to study 3 times harder than during the year when i did assignments.

It is really a good discussion. It is right that these two types of students exist in this world. But, I follow the strategy in between, that is; not enjoying throughout the year but to study a bit whenever getting a rest from my enjoyment and that is really helpfull than other strategies. Because, it creates a habit of studying and do take much time to get into the subject before the exams and also do not restrict the enjoyment part of the life too. So, friends, what do you think about this?

Well depends on what kind of people the students are like some are enjoying ones who love to enjoy their whole year and study hard in the last few days like me and some are very studious who like to study the whole year to get better grades. As i have seen students who study whole year get better results.

I more like the second type.I tend to cram all the day before. However I always giving attention and try to concentrate while the teacher explaining the lesson, but I' ve never set a time to just study.I think it's important to listening the explanation.At my first year at college I can't concentrate and barely paying attention while the instructor giving matery.I cram for exam and got bad score.

To tell you the truth, when i was in school, i was of the first type. Though i enjoyed those days too. But now when i am in college, i have become of the second type. I do not study in the hostel, always do something or the other... I am trying to recover from this and trying to become the first type again. I feel, for the first type of students, the pressure before the exams is very less and they can relax and study, whereas for us, it is horrible...

I think I am in the second category too. But then we had some students who didn't study at all and waited for a chance to cause trouble before the exams so the school can be closed down or the exams get postponed or something. Those were really very bad students. But the good thing is they never actual succeed.

I'm a third type: the kind who doesn't study. I guess you consider me the first kind of student, because I do all my reading and homework through out the semester, but I never set aside time to just study. I usually study for about an hour the night before an exam but only because someone asked me to study with them. I never do all-night cram sessions. Generally if I've paid attention the whole class and kept up with my work I don't need to study.

both sides have their positive and negative aspects when they are both considered. if you plan on studying all year long a little bit, you might tend to forget things when you actually have your final exam at the end of the session. If you cram all the day before, you risk not having enough time or just forgetting because you can't remember very well under stress. Although I am more like the second type, i think that a general review during the year and then one big review at the end is most helpful because you will already know and understand the concepts but they will now be fresh in your mind

Hello,lalyu86,as you said you have also studied for the whole year,that mean you are a quite hardworking student,i think which strategy works better depends on different people,some people may find it enough to keep study for the same time before the exam while the others are like you,what is important is you should not be the ones who do not study throughout the year but start brushing up the day before the exam.
