We call it the AIR (Attention, Intention, and Repetition) process. First pay Attention to something you are trying to memorize. Because if you don’t, you cannot expect you brain to retain it. Secondly, the more Intention you give it the easier it is to memorize. Because it is easier to attain what you intend to achieve. Finally, Repetition helps you memorize faster. Revise repeatedly, what you have learnt.
Relax if your brain is exhausted. Walk off your study table and get some fresh air. Also make sure that your study is well ventilated, because less oxygen can exhaust your brain, obstructing concentration. Try moving around to boost your circulation, if you have been sitting for long. Avoid revising at this time. Instead try out something that you enjoy doing. This will give your brain a new focus.
Be active in mental activity. Try reading reference materials, or listening to lectures, rather than passively reading through it. Lastly, don’t look for easy answers in stimulants like tea or coffee. These are mere short term remedies, and being too much dependent on these might have serious impacts on your brain and health.
Hope this is of some help to you. Keep studying and prepare well. We hope to see you as AIIMsonians in the upcoming academic year.
Until then stay fit and Good Luck!!
