while studying enhance the room with scents that you’ll be able to use in the test room. what i mean by that is whatever scent you decide on it should not be so strong you can not tolerate it in your shirt pocket. using this technique you’ll doing your studying while sniffing, using an aromatic diffuser and when it’s test time put the scent on a tissue or hanky in your shirt pocket. Refer to the smell when you need to recall something.

Take Rosemary, internally and externally (essential oil with carrier).

Play instrumental music while studying. When you need to recall something hum that tune to the corresponding information.

ginko biloba,

hi
I am a professor and has to work and read a lot .i had the same level of tension few months earlier but divya helped me with some natural food supplements which really helpmed me in relieveing tension and increasing memory and concentaration power.she is a health consultant from bangalore.you can contact her at divyagupta66866@gmail.com.i am sure she can help you.
all the best

It really depends on what you’re trying to learn. If mathematical formulas or lists of numbers are among your material, there is a trick to remembering them. Assign an object or person to each number, 0-9 and a task to each function. The mental images created through this method tend to ‘adhere’ a lot better than a string of numbers and symbols. As a simple example, if you’re trying to remember 2 + 1 and assign your mother to number 2, a pancake to number 1, and swimming to addition, the image of your mother swimming in pancakes will be easier to remember. Yeah, it sounds weird and sort of dumb, but I promise you it works.

i used to take ginko biloba, but could never remember to take it.

Ah, exams. I hate those too, but here’s some tips to better prepare for it.

1) Plan Ahead – Usually you know when will the exam be ahead of time and as soon as you receive the date plan your daily activities right away. This way, when you’re studying, you won’t be interrupted because you forgot that you have another thing to do or places to be on that same time.

2) Rest or be restless – A good night sleep helps a lot on studying. I would advice that you do your studies in the morning rather than in the afternoon or at night while your mind and body are still fresh.

3) Divide and Conquer – What you need to do is to analyze all the meterials that you need to absorb into your brain. Divide them into small portions since nobody really want to study for 8 hrs straight, that will only bring more stress and will leave you exhausted on the day of exam. Then you need to allocate each section into a 2hr study sessions, this way you’re not pressured nor stressed and have the ability to absorb and understand what you’re studying. After studying a section, test yourself to make sure that you don’t just remember them, rather to make sure that you understand them. This is important.

That’s all there is to it. Just keep in mind that if you prepare for it, it’s really that simple. Honestly, it’s all about priorities.

if you like tea… try this!
boil water and then sprinkle it, while hot, with spearmint leaves.. let them in the water for about twenty minutes and then throw them away!
let the tea get cold..
drink three to four cups on a daily basis and you ‘ll see the difference…
good luck and best results on your exams!

Good nights sleep

Block out everything and concentrate on the exam.

Blueberries are said to improve memory..and fish…for its omega nutrients..Hope it helps..

What helps me is by repeating to yourself..what you need to remember…like a list of things on a paper and just read them over and over until they stick and then remember them without looking…they say I have a photographic memory…Good luck! or get a study buddy..to quiz you on stuff you need to know for the exams.

well,usually i read loudly!it helps me from two sides!!num 1.-when i read anything,my brain catch it for first time,num 2.-and again when my brain hear it(as i read loudly),it can recognise it!!& what topic i usually forgot,i just keep a note of that!!& i just look them anytime!!it is not necessary to remember everything;isn’t it??

try to understand what u r reading and if you have an mp3 player, rec your voice and when you tired go to the bed while you hear this try to understand what ar you listening to

give me ten points (it works)

I can remember this kind of tension. I always found that the more fun you have in studying a topic, the more you remember. So I always tried to study with a friend, then we would quiz each other on the answers. It was a challenge, because I didn’t want my friend to surpass me. We both agreed it helped us both, even during those times when we would collapse in laughter over some goof.

Don’t study for more than an hour before taking a few minutes off to relax and allow your mind to absorb what you have learned. Once you conquer that tension, you will be able to concentrate on your studies and all will be well.

my health teacher said that if you study the most important thing before you go to sleep you are most likely yo remeber it. I don’t know if it works because i don’t study that much, but that is my input.

I agree with the divide & conquer theory……..divide ur subject into 1 or 2 hour parts, read one of those parts once before u go to bed at night…….then go to bed early & get up early (preferrably at dawn when it’s quiet) & read it again…….I’ve tried it a few times & it works for me……..the brain works subconsciously when ur asleep so the info sticks easier & longer. oh, & forget the stress……….everytime u feel stressed just relax for 5 or 10 min & think of nothing or meditate. Believe me, 1 hour of relaxed studying is worth 2 hrs of stressed studying. Best of luck. Hope this helps.

If you see your memory as needing improvement you are already damning it. Its like Henry Ford saying: If you think you can do it, you are right; if you think you can’t, you are right.
So go on, trust your memory, and you’ll be right.

In case of formulas write them on a piece of paper and hang it on the wall in your room so that u can always glance it very regularly.

While studying theory subjects I make a word out of the sub points eg: Climate, Accessibility, Transport, …..short form CAT and then elaborate these topics in detail.

Thirdly Himalaya Brahmi Ayurvedic Tablets are very good for enhancing memory.

Fourthly soak 2-3 almonds overnight in water and eat in the morning on a routine basis good for memory and better complexion

Good Luck for your exams

Increasing blood flow increases oxygen to the brain by exercise. This is the #1 way to increase your brain function. Secondly is eating blueberries- they are the healthiest brain food you can eat, next to that would be eggs. Third thing you can do to memorize is take notes that are short and to the point. After this, there’s nothing more you can do for a quick fix; as it sounds like this is what your needing. To countinue improving brain function, above is mandatory then next to that would be learning a new language.

Make sure you’re alert and attentive before trying to memorize anything

Understand the material rather than merely memorizing, if it’s the type that requires deeper comprehension

Look for larger patterns or ideas, and organize pieces of information into meaningful groups

Link the new bits of knowledge with what you already know. Place what you learn into context with the rest of your knowledge, looking for relationships between ideas

Engage your visual and auditory senses by using drawings, charts or music to aid memory

Use mnemonics ‘ devices such as formulas or rhymes that serve as memory aids. For example, use the acronym ‘HOMES’ to memorize the Great Lakes (Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie and Superior)

Repeat and review what you’ve learned as many times as you can. Apply it or use it in conversation, as continual practice is the key to remembering things in the long term

I’m a nuke in the Navy. This is the third toughest schooling you can get in the nation. We have absolutely zero multiple choice therefore everything is based on “understanding” (that means memorize everything if you want the points). So something that helps many of the students here is using a small portable white board and a dry erase marker and then sit down and copy what needs to be memorized out of the notes a few times and then continuosly trying to look as little as possible from the notes as you repeat it over and over. The repetition alone will help but also forcing yourself to remember will help also. Before you know it you’ll have it.

I learned a brilliant memory technique from Derren Brown’s book. One is called the ‘loci’ system, it’s where you go on an imaginary tour of a familiar place and place each item from the list your memorasing at eah location. Another is the peg system for remembering numbers, you turn digits into sounds, sounds into words then combine the words together.

Google ‘peg system’ and ‘loci system’.

I think you improve your memory doing exercise, eating healthy food, no tension

first, look around you and ask yourself all this question is the place quiet..? is the place comfortable for studying..? is there enough space for yourself..? because if too small, you will feel stress.. is there any music standing by for you to calm yourself down or de stress yourself.. if all the answer for all this question is positive then you can use the room without any tension or stress..

Just relax, do your hard work and satisfy and relax and you revise before going to exam

I was in the same position as you here is what helped me.

Instead of studing for long hours at one stretch. As soon as the teacher assigns work (in what ever form) start right away, ask questions and finished early, study in short one hour interevals, daily. 7-9 hours on one subjuct is tough, one hour is easy.

I went from staying up late, to gliding through college.

Good Luck

study daily (1-2 hours), write your OWN notes, do exercises

if you don’t have time, burn the midnight oil, last minute revision and do it thoroughly, keyword is thoroughly, so you don’t just get a blur memory on what you did last night, write notes if you think its necessary, this proves to be very helpful, remember hard and in the morning you’ll be able to at least score an average mark, although persevere study is better.

timing: at least 5 hours (it still depends) and MAKE SURE you are the midnight type of person or else you’ll get very tired the next day, if you aren’t, just stay alert during the few exam hours

according to me when u r reading the books u have to do three things

1)close the eyes and relax for while
2)don’t think anything concentration on books
3)after reading the books u have to write on a book what u read before &check mistakes

well wat i use to do i can suggest u that thing only go through ur notes once early morning then once more in day go to sleep early and just before the exams that very day try to go through once more …….

You must do” MEDITATION” which is a right exercise for to improve your memory , it is naturally also.
Step : 1 Close your eyes and First try to concentrate on your breath . Then try to feel your body parts and other functions going on in your body .
Practice may not only will help you to increase your memory but give you energy as required by your soul.
Wish you all the best.

optimal sleep, try exercising your brain by reading and recalling what you have just read and also by drinking regular cup of tea, sage herb, ginkgo biloba might help to boost your memory..

Very simple, you may

1.to plan first how to remember many important things,

2. Keep note down important things in a dairy or post it slip you can use to remind you.

3. you can put reminders in your computer or mobile.

4. For study, you may have to give glance on study material number of time and solved problems needs to be exercised

All above tips will ensure you to do things at right time and also after some time before get reminder from any of above tips tools you may do it automatically.

Hello! I have always tryed to improve my memory! Here are some helpful tips…
How to memeorize numbers…
. Our brains think with pictures, not with numbers. It’s easier for us to visualize an elephant eating a ham sandwich than to picture the string of numbers $2,347.91. But what if we could mentally convert a number into a word, a word that represents a mental picture? It turns out that we can.
Suppose we assigned each of the digits 0 through 9 to a consonant. Then, when we want to remember a number, we convert the number into consonants, insert vowels, and form a word. This word can then be used to form an association much more readily, rather than trying to use the number itself.

As an example, suppose we want to remember that the Old Testament has 39 books, and suppose 3 and 9 translated into M and P, respectively. We could then insert the vowel A between the consonants to come up with the word “map”. We would then visualize a huge map in front of us, with the Mediterranean Sea, Israel, Egypt, Mt. Sinai, etc.: a nice map of the Old Testament. Two weeks later we want to remember how many books were in the Old Testament. We recall that huge map with all the places on it. MAP… consonants are M and P… that’s 3 and 9. 39! We did it! That’s sort of a roundabout way of doing it, but it works, because of the associations.

So, you ask, how do I know that M is 3 and P is 9? The answer is that you must first memorize the following table of consonants and digits. Oh dear, you say. But wait… once this chart is memorized, it can be used for life! And second, there’s even a scheme to associate the numbers with the letters!

NUMBER LETTER/SOUND MEMORY AID
1 t, d t has one downstroke
2 n n has two downstrokes
3 m m has three downstrokes
4 r “four” ends with R
5 l Latin 50 = L
6 j, sh, ch J reversed looks like 6
7 k, g (hard) Visualize a K drawn with two 7s
8 f, v Cursive f has two loops like an 8
9 p, b P reversed looks like 9
0 z, s “zero” starts with Z

This is the standardized mnemonic system used by memory experts. It has been optimized in order to make it easy to learn and use. Note that pairs of letters have been grouped together because of their phonetic similarity, such as t and d or p and b. If you are not familiar with phonetics, whisper the word “dog.” Notice that it sounds like “tok”. This is how you can tell which sounds are phonetically similar.
Here are some rules about using the number alphabet:

The alphabet is strictly phonetic. For example, the word “cough” should be thought of as KoF and translated into 78; “gem” is pronounced JeM and is thus 63.
Double letters are not counted. For example, “Butter” translates into B, T and R (only one T).
Three consonant sounds do not appear in the chart: W, H and Y. Why, you ask? Good question! Good answer!
Vowels are always ignored, as well as W, H and Y mentioned above. The long word “hollow,” for example, contains just one useful letter: L.
When creating words from consonants, vivid nouns usually work the best, rather than adjectives, verbs or other related words.
Before reading further, take a few minutes to memorize the number alphabet. Thanks to the memory aids, it shouldn’t take long. Cover all but the “number” column and try to name the letter or letters. Then write the groups of letters in random order on a piece of paper, look at the letter groups, and try to come up with the number.

You are now ready to memorize most any kind of number! Suppose you need to remember that a bowling tournament is being held on the 25th of this month. 25 translates into NL which might stand for “nail.” Now picture yourself bowling, but when the ball hits the pins, the ball surprisingly bounces back! That’s because someone nailed the pins to the floor. Bowling, nail, NL, 25, 25th. It works!

What about the periodic number for Potassium (19)? Perhaps you will think of bananas, which have lots of potassium, sitting on a table. Table = TBL = 195. But note that the number for potassium only has two digits, so we can throw out the extra 5. We get 19! How about silver (47)? Perhaps a RAKE made of pure silver? How about gold (79)? Perhaps you might think of a mysterious person in town who has gold in his cupboard? Pronounce it “kubbard,” throw out the extra numbers, and you get KB = 79.

What about much longer numbers, like an employee ID number of 857502? It would be almost impossible for you to come up with a word that fits “FLKLSN,” and it would also be hard to come up with a series of words that don’t have any extra, unwanted letters in them. Let’s break it down into three parts: 85-75-02. Now, let’s come up with a word for each part. Perhaps file, coal and sniff. Sniff represents 028, but since we are memorizing only pairs, any extra numbers are ignored. Imagine you come into your office, and go to your FILE cabinet. Opening it, you see that someone has dumped coal into it! And then when you sniff the drawer, it smells awful! The next time you fill out some form at the office, all you have to do is remember that story, and then write down 857502 instinctively.
How to memerize lists…
Suppose you’re going to the store for groceries and you need the following five items: eggs, bread, bacon, cheese and milk. How can you remember the list? For short lists, the easiest way is simply to “link” the words together in a long chain, like this:
eggs -> bread -> bacon -> cheese -> milk

Then, think of some animated story in your mind to link the items together. For example, imagine walking to the store with a grocery bag in your hand. We start with a grocery bag because it’s a grocery list — it would be difficult to jump immediately to eggs. On a street corner someone appears from nowhere, hands you an egg then walks off. Dazed, you take the egg and drop it in the bag. It cracks and makes a mess. (The mess is a vivid picture in your mind that strengthens the picture of “egg” even more.) So by the time the next person comes out of nowhere and hands you a loaf of bread, you don’t want to put it in the bag, so you carry it in your other hand. You hold it by the tie and it twirls as you walk.
This is a long story so far, but remember, you’re not writing a story on paper, you’re just thinking of it in your mind, so it goes rather quickly. In fact it often goes so quickly through your mind that the added, extra detail is very helpful in remembering later. The more ways you experience an object — if you think of its appearance, its touch, its smell, etc. — the more likely you’ll remember it later!

Suddenly, there’s bacon on the sidewalk as you’re walking, and it crunches under your feet. The grease gets on your shoes. Next there’s cheese on the ground, and you walk on it. Yuck! Now there’s grease and gooey cheese on your shoes. When you get to the store, there’s no restroom or water fountain, so you, strangely, just take a gallon of milk, open it, and pour it on your shoes to clean them! (Don’t worry, this is only imagination — you would never do this in real life!)

Wow, what an exciting finish to the story. Notice that we didn’t just put all the grocery items in the bag one by one. The instances would be so similar we’d get them mixed up! So a lot of variety was used. The story was so fun that, no doubt, you can stop right now, look away from this document, think through the story again and remember perfectly the five items. Try it again tomorrow morning and see if you still remember!

Memorizing Long Lists
The grocery list was easy, but what about longer lists, such as a list of all of the states of the United States? If you forget a word in a middle, the chain is broken and you’ve lost the rest! Also, if you want to remember the 15th state — useful if you memorized the states in order of population or size — you have to recall the first fourteen. Another way to memorize lists is to use what are called”peg words.”
Before we begin, memorize this short list of peg words. Note that they are numbered, and the peg word actually does translates into the correct number, so you should be able to form some associations right away.

1. Hat
2. Hen
3. Ham
4. Rye
5. Hill

Practice recalling the peg words before continuing.
Now, let’s use the peg words to memorize a list of the five biggest cities in Michigan, in order: Detroit, Grand Rapids, Warren, Flint and Lansing. We’ll take each of the peg words and place them next to each item in the cities list. Next, we’ll form some simple paired associations between the words. Note that instead of making a huge chain, we are now working with only pairs.

PEG ITEM ASSOCIATION

1. Hat Detroit Picture large top-hat with Model T cars
stiched on it in an interesting pattern
2. Hen Grand Rapids Hen steps into a river, then is quickly
carried away and gushes through rapids
3. Ham Warren Ham on platter is given to Warren Beatty
(movie star), who looks at it oddly
4. Rye Flint Start with rye bread. Use Flint and
steel to make spark to burn the bread!
5. Hill Lansing The hills are alive with the Sound of Music
(movie)! The whole land begins to sing!!

After studying the above associations, cover it up, then look at the five peg items by themselves. Can you name all five cities on the list? Hopefully, you can. Note that we’ve solved our problem. Our long chain of items has been changed to a numerical chain, an easy list of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. These correspond to a certain peg item, which, after a little practice, you can easily name. Finally, we associate simple pairs of words: the peg words with the actual list of items. You probably could have done it easily by using the short list method — I didn’t want to give you a huge example so fast — but it’s obvious that this method would be very helpful for long lists (like the 50 states).
To memorize longer lists, all you need to do is memorize a basic set of peg words, words which are derived from their associated numbers directly. Some example words are given below; you can also come up with your own. Try to come up with the shortest possible words for your list, because many different words can stand for a number, and you want to reduce the number of possibilities. (When memorizing numbers that aren’t peg words, you can use longer words, because in that case, you will only be converting words to numbers, and a word always produces a unique number.)

1. Hat 11. Dot 21. Net 31. Mat 41. Road
2. Hen 12. Town 22. Nun 32. Moon 42. Rain
3. Ham 13. Dime 23. Name 33. Mummy 43. Room
4. Rye 14. Tire 24. Nero 34. Mower 44. Aurora
5. Hill 15. Doll 25. Nail 35. Mule 45. Roll
6. Shoe 16. Tissue 26. Notch 36. Match 46. Rash
7. Cow 17. Duck 27. Neck 37. Mug 47. Rock
8. Ivy 18. Taffy 28. Knife 38. Movie 48. Roof
9. Bee 19. Tape 29. Knob 39. Map 49. Rope
10. Toes 20. Nose 30. Mouse 40. Rose 50. Lace

The peg words method for lists is great for lists of items that must be in a specific order, because peg words are tied to specific numbers. Assuming you’ve previously memorized the five peg words, note how easily you can come up with the 4th item — just go 4… rye… Flint — without having to go through items 1 through 3 first. For unordered lists, where the assigned number is not important, you could even exchange items in the list to come up with easier associations.

Great question! Have a great day!

–Arya Block–

I read a few answers here and taking pills is wrong. Depends on what your trying to remember? HA! Do you remember your name? Why? Phone number? Address? If you really need to remember something write it down 25 times. You remember things as a result of repetetiveness. There are a lot of things I can’t remember……or….choose not to. If you have to take pills….take vitamins and be strong in mind and body. If you are in college, then write stuff down and study instead of party.

Stop waiting until the last minute to study(cram) for exams. It’s lots easier if your work on the curriculum as you go along .

I used to know…….?

1. do simple math problems fast.
-add subtract multiply divide, but dont get hard do all the elementary math. time yourself and do about 30 a day. in less than a minute.
2. read about 5 paragraphs also fast aloud. make sure you pronounce each word.
3. count syllables in a ten different sentences

do all three everyday, and each day youll improve. time yourself each day and you will see the the time go down, and you will get better.

I think you just answered your own question — “you don’t have the time”, — so maybe you shouldn’t “chew more than you can swallow”.

=)
.

I “go to sleep on” whatever I need to memorize, and it stays with me for years. I type out what I want to memorize just as I will write about it on the test. For example once in the seventh grade, I had to memorize the Gettysburg Address. I typed it out on a piece of paper, went to bed, and simply read it over and over and over and over until I passed out and fell asleep. When I woke up in the morning, I knew it word for word and still remembered it in college. When I have to remember several things, I write them out in detail using parallel passages (the same words and sentence structure) as much as possible, and I do the same thing. Do not GO to sleep. Keep repeating until you PASS OUT reading. I taught my wife to do this. When she studied for her state license for cosmetology, we typed out every question and answer using the same starting phrase for each answer. We made a tape of the whole study text, and we listened to it while trying to stay awake every night for a week before she went to take the test. She got really really bored with the questions and answers, but she passed the four hour test before anyone else in the room, and she passed it with a perfect score on the first try, and she barely spoke English at the time. It works. Try it.

Abbreviate definitions.

Relax… It’s all in your mind and habits.
Try EVERY DAY writing things down on a 3×5…
Forign Language vocab, balistics reports, fractions equated from metric to standard.

Pull it out often and look it over when you are doing nothing.

Relax though. Life is too short.

Find sometime where you can really relax and start studying the notes and when you get “stressed out” take a short 5-10 min. walk or just eat something like an energy bar, because it will make you more energetic and you WILL last longer if you have something in your stomach but if your a really hyper person i suggest a walk will suit you better.

You have received some great answers so far but one I use in addition to those mentioned already is visualization.

Often if I visualize something I need to remember, often in a funny way, I can remember it better.

For example, if I need to remember a name, I will come up with images to associate with the person. An easy example is to remember the name of a man I met Warren Field. I picture soldiers fighting in a wheat field = a war in a field. I can never forget that man’s name.

Get a good book on memory techniques. They can be great but also read the other answers about planning, study habits, sleep and exercise, etc and you will find your memory improves substantially.

Alright, i’m not good in Spanish and i use my own method to work it out. Here’s a solution:
make notecards of what you don’t know, not everything because that will hurt your hand and brain and you’ll get bored faster while studying. Just write up the things that you don’t know or have trouble remembering without a hint.

once you make the notecards organize them according to subject. Once their subject organized organize them again into concepts.
ex) Science—-> Magnetism, Bouyency, Atoms, Ions, etc.
Math———> Fractions, Percents, Graphing, etc.

(get it?)

when all the notecards are organized read them over a good many times and try to remember certain things that can relate to that card. an example is:

Lets say you like to paint and you have a card about how to turn an Atom into an Ion. Think of a painter’s paper (the thing with the paint on it). if one atom is pink and the other atom is black, and you want to make a dark pink color then you have to take a bit of the black paint. The bit that you take is 1 electron from the valence shell of the black paint. When you take it away from the glob of black paint the paint won’t be the same as it was before (an Atom) so because it is missing a bit is will have a negative charge and it will be an ion. Now when you put that paint (electron) on the pink glob, it has more than it normally needs so it will have a positive charge and it is an ion.

If the thing you need to study is Vocabulary, try and think of bits of the word that sound like another simple word that doesn’t have anything to do with the word, but you will make up a crazy sentence about the definition.
example concerning spanish words:

Lavaplatos means sink. so use the funny saying, “There’s lava in the sink”

I don’t know of many other studying tips other than that, but maybe tell your friends about the same tips and then when you all have your cards together, look over which ones that you each have that are the same and talk about different ways to remember them.

Also, even if your friends don’t have the same cards as you, try quizzing each other on all the cards. This might help…

the boring way of studying is to make study guides on each subject and on only what you don’t know or have trouble remembering, then reading it over and over.

((Not suggested))

well, i don’t know how much help i could be, but this is how i study and I get straight A’s….
Then again, each person has their own was that they happen to learn better, this is just mine…

((results may vary))

I learned from Jerry Lucus. Relate what you have to remember with something. My husband absolutely could not remember the name of an Indian woman- he asked me, and this is how I helped him to remember. She has a long tassle of hair down to her knees. Tasneem was her name.
Jerry remembers everyone last name in a crowd that he just meets for the first time. He tells of one woman he had a hard time with until he noticed she had big cheeks, he thought- she looks like some one hit her in the face with four new rackets. Fornaracus was her last name.

Practice makes perfect and that is never more true than with memory. You should also try mnemonics, mind maps and chunking. There is plenty of good information on the internet to help you. The best piece of advice however is to get your self as fit as possible and understand the material you are reading. The fitter you are and the more you understand the easier it is to remember.

I totally know what you mean. What I do is make little study papers, like with questions on one side and the answers on the other. I bring those little papers with me everywhere and when I am just sitting around with nothing to do I review them by covering the answers and memorizing them.

Then I get friends to test me. And it all depends on you. You don’t nessecarily have to follow all the guideliness everyone tells you. Just find out and adjust to what seems right and helpful to YOU. I study better at night XP.

i dint no how to improve your memory but i do no how to help u study. u can study every 20 Min’s don’t try to study for 3 hours straight. that wont help that’s just over loading your brain u need time your the tings to sink in.

listen to Mozart! classical music affects the brain!

1st u need to know and accept that exam is one of the reason people stress… if u want to know, try not to eat many food that contain or taste sour to much…. cuz it could make us forget things sometimes…

raji, tyrone and lydia are the best bet! also try as much as possible to get some rest and most importantly, think positive! it sounds silly and something my grandmother would say. trust me, thinking positive, feeling confident and making an effort will get you anything you want in life. your thinking attracts the world surrounding you. if you think negative or anxiously, that’s exactly what you’ll get. but if you proceed with confidence then nothing but success will you bring into your life. see yourself passing those exams and succeeding. dream it if you have to! you’ll do great kid!

The Japanese way I heard about and tried for a razer sharp mind is: excercise,even lighty,a banana once a day,and fish every 3 days. I can say it works.also include a good nights sleep,and before study-half a cup of tea.
