Dec 23 / Faryal Nasir
Exams are coming up and all you out there giving Acca papers must be tensed to the wits. But anxiety and stress won't work, instead staying calm and balancing out study and life will lead to positive outcomes.
What you may not realize is that you may tend to adopt some habits which are detrimental for your ACCA , but trust me, we've all been there. You will be enlightened on the worst Acca habits (which you didn't even know you had until now) and how to rectify them.

Filling as much information as you can
Also known as cramming. We know you are stressed about your exams and you want to gain and learn as much as you can. For that you want to watch the lectures, study the notes, take help from different references, simultaneously solve past papers, attempt revision questions, take classes and what not. The result of which will be you will gain nothing productive. Follow an institute which will provide you extensive understanding of the course, give you enough practice, provide you with live webinars, crash courses, debrief sessions and 24/7 mentor support such as Vifhe. Then surely you will not need to worry as you will be acing your paper for sure.

Not utilizing the productive slot
We all have our own routines and time periods in which we are the most productive. This can range from person to person. Recognize when you are able to study and learn best and what time suits you. Whether it's late night or early dawn or after you have had your meals, study in that time period. This way you will be able to learn easily and effectively rather than just going over the notes with a blank mind.

Not practicing enough
This is a habit which is adopted by almost 90% of the students. Remember the good old saying, "practice makes perfect'' ? It's actually very true. The more you practice and study the more you learn. Going through the notes and learning in the last weeks will not help you much, so stop wasting time and focus on your notes and questions.

Quantity over quality
You are learning, you are putting in excess time for studying, you are repeating everything 100s of times but still you feel you have not learnt anything well. Why? Because you are focusing on quantitative learning rather than qualitative learning. Learn and understand rather than just memorize everything. Understanding will make it easier for you to apply your information in different contexts of the exam.

Not taking care of yourself
Self care, family time, healthy eating, sleep and leisure is equally important for a healthy lifestyle. You will hardly be productive when you have not eaten, are tired of studying constantly and have slept only for 4 hours. This way you are just wasting time and effort. Balance out and Manage a proper routine. Spend time with family, get 7 to 8 hours of sleep, use social media, eat healthy and study. You will definitely see an improvement.
So if you are giving your ACCA exams in the upcoming time, then quit the above listed worst habits and adopt healthy ones instead. Register to Vifhe now and pave your way towards the road to success.
