3. Bifurcate your topic
Long answers are somewhat magical. They can draw sleep into your eyes and fall you asleep. But they are necessary if you want to add a few extra marks to your kitty. So, here’s our magic formula or rather you can call it smart formula to make learning long answers easy. Each long answer has its roots in smaller ones. Thus, before jumping straight to brief answers, start with one line answers; fill in the blanks and short answers. Club them together, format it well and it will be easy to remember your long answer.

Herein, you can start with a brief explanation and later move on to explain each part of the heart in 3 to 4 lines. Reading them this way will aid retain the information and if you have understood the very core you can go on to write in your own words.
4. Study using examples
The human mind is a crazy monkey. It will keep jumping from one branch to another until it finds something which can catch its curiosity. Similar manner, examples help make any topic interesting and attracting the attention of students. It helps one relate to the examples as it helps gain an emotional connection to it. And thus, if you wish to retain what you study better back it with examples. Because even if you forget the answer, the example will help you once again connect the loop and get your pen running on the paper.
5. Study early in the morning and revise just before going to bed
A lot of us find burning the night oil to be the best way for gaining high scores. However, that is only going to make you feel lethargic the next day morning. While drinking coffee and tea in between can help to shoo away your sleep, it will do no better for your studies. Coffee tends to release Cortisol viz. a stress hormone in the blood thereby kicking your energy levels high. This stress will later make you lethargic and deprived of sleep as well as the brain weaker to retain information.
You need to be healthy both mentally as well as physically to gain good scores in your exams. Thus, last but not least, our final magic trick is wake up early in the morning to learn and revise at night just before falling asleep.
Reason: A night sleep clears your system off toxins. Thus, your brain is much equipped to take in information. Additionally, as people hardly wake up early these days, you can get some quiet time to study without any noise except the sweet chirping of birds. As per research, people tend to remember things which they have heard or seen before sleep. Hence, if you hear a horror story or watch snakes on TV before going to sleep you find them visiting your dream and remaining in your head even in the morning.
So, revise your answers in your mind, uttering them as prayers and have your prayer answer when you retain back all the information in the morning without forgetting.
