Like any other student, I was never a big fan of homework. I had the feeling that this is useless and that it only takes away my free time. This feeling was even stronger when I had to work on my biology assignment. It seemed impossible to finish it in time, and I would waste an entire afternoon with only one simple exercise. Luckily for me, I found some tricks that helped me improve my productivity and I could finish everything in a really short time. Apply these next time you have to work on your assignments:
- Stop postponing. This is the simplest and the most efficient advice that I can give you. When you get home, you want to do anything else but not your assignments. You decide that you will do it later, in the evening, but this never happens. To prevent going to school without your homework, make sure to complete it as soon as you get home. After that you can do whatever you please.
- Watch documentaries. Biology does not have to be boring. Actually, if you try to approach your assignments from another angle you will discover that this course is pretty fascinating. To read form your book for a few hours can be extremely upsetting even for the best student, so why not watch something instead? You can find on the internet hundreds of documentaries related to the topic that you need to study, and you will not feel like this assignment is pure torture.
- Visit the Zoo. This was my favorite part from all. Looking at a book you have the feeling that animals are some plain creatures and you don’t feel interested in them at all. If you visit the ZOO, you will suddenly become attracted to Biology and you will like to learn more and more. You can observe the anatomy of the animals as well as their behavior and what they eat. You can even take pictures and show them to your colleagues!
- Make some drawings. If you have to memorize a long chapter, it’s always a good idea to make a drawing. You will remember everything you need to know even if you did not focus on this for more than 30 minutes. What is the secret? When you do something you love, your brain will remember it easier.
