How to start studying again when you are bored of it

June 4, 2012

Piles of Books! Ton of assignments! A friend on phone! Favourite TV show about to start!
Phew, this is huge stuff to deter anyone from start studying. Also, I have known myself to take an easy weekend when I have studied for 5 days in a row for my exam. But any competitive exam deserves regular preparation and a serious attitude by the student. But, come on, we all know that it is too difficult to be immaculately regular.
So, what to do when you know you should study but it seems like drudgery.

Have a plan!
Sometimes it is not that bad to take a break, provided it is short and provided you know what you are going to do next. If you don’t have a study plan then the break will tend to grow longer and it will become harder for you to get back to studies. Also make sure your plans are reasonable and SMART (Specific Measurable Attainable Relevant Time-bound). provides SMART study plans for various exams and when you log in anytime it tells you exactly what to do next.

Think about your future
This is a very positive thought and positive thoughts tend to make you do right things. This is well researched. Your future depends on your preparation right now. “What a great college I plan to go?” and “What a wonderful career I will have?” and then “It is better to prepare for it right now”
Call up a study buddy
Study buddies are great to get you back on track and motivate you positively for studying. Study buddies solve questions together, ask doubts with each other and even compete with each other all in the spirit of preparing for the exam. Log on to with your friend and become a study buddy online and prepare together even when it is not possible to physically meet.

Do some Study Fun!
Here are various ways you can have fun and learn. No there is no opening a book and studying here.
  • Watch a concept video. It’s fun to watch a video and if it is on an exam concept, better!
  • Read some tips and tricks to solve questions fast

You have to study and study hard, you know that, but once in a while everyone gets bored. Just see with these steps how your time to remain bored reduces and you start enjoying studies as well.
That’s it!
