How to Create the Best Study Timetable?

A study session is perfectly monitored when it goes as per the timetable. A study session is based on how the timetable is set up, and how the slots are divided based on the study routine. One must note that a timetable must not be inclusive of only studies and activities related to the learning process. A perfect timetable will have an ample amount of time for studies, time slots for every subject, a little extra time for backup, and a few hours for activities such as sports, hobbies, reading newspapers and magazines. A timetable that includes all these elements makes for a perfect study session. This article will throw some light on how to create the best study timetable. 

Know Your Schedule First

Before setting the timetable, try to analyse the ongoing schedule. This will help in identifying the priorities, for how long one can devote time for studying, how much time is left for extracurricular activities and hobbies etc. Planning the daily routine will help the students to know where the time is being wasted, and where the time must be invested. Spending hours together on one activity is not a good sign of a timetable. Instead, spending chunks of time on various activities with extra backup time is the best way to create a timetable. 

Prioritise the Tasks Based on Deadlines

Being a learner, one will have numerous assignments and tasks to complete within the given time frame. A student who is capable of finishing these tasks well before the deadline is considered an ideal one. While setting up the timetable, one must strictly allocate time for completing homework and assignments on a daily basis. This time slot avoids the last minute hurry and rushes to finish the tasks. One can utilise this time for writing assignments, making projects, doing homework such as english questions, numerical and many more based on the priority. When these tasks are completed well before the submission deadline, then this time can be utilised for doing other important and useful tasks related to the study process. 

Keep it Interesting

A learner must note that an interesting timetable and routine helps to stick to the schedule. A boring timetable that focuses only on studies will definitely make the student bored. A timetable must consist of a study for 45 minutes to one hour, and then a short break of 10 mins. This break can include a power nap, a small walk, playing an instrument and so on. Also, after a continuous study for three hours, one must take a break for half an hour and engage in one’s hobby, or do any favourite activity to relax the brain and to give a break to the body. One can also do some physical activity during this time. This refreshes and energises the mind and body for the next longer study session. 

Split the Subjects into Chunks

During study sessions, many learners tend to stick to a particular subject for one whole day. It is something unsuitable. Instead of finishing the entire chapter or subject in a single gulp, one can split it into small chunks. Students can spend one hour daily on each subject, as it helps them to grasp the concepts easily. When a learner spends the whole day on one subject, the mind gets stressed out and it gets difficult to concentrate on topics while studying. Solving commerce Q&A continuously for hours may choke up the mind. Instead, one can solve a few questions, then switch to another subject and later come again to solve the rest. Switching from one subject to another helps in better understanding and it also brings out good results. 

Have a Backup Plan

It is obvious that all days cannot always be the same. Somedays, a few events might come up suddenly, and one may not be able to follow the scheduled study routine or timetable. For those days, students must have a backup study plan where the important tasks are carried out. The remaining planned tasks can be completed in the coming days, without disturbing the other routines of the day. Students can also compromise their time for hobbies and other extra activities, when there is a shortage of time and focus on vital tasks or studies. One can also alter the study schedule during the examination since it is more important than other extracurricular activities. 

Framing and scheduling a timetable is an easy task, but following the timetable strictly can be difficult. One has to make up their mind and stick to the prepared schedule. Initially, it is difficult to follow but in the long run, following a perfect timetable will definitely yield good results.
