5 Important Habits of Successful Students

The key to becoming an effective student is learning to study smarter, not harder. Most successful students achieve their success by developing and applying effective study habits. Therefore, if you want to become a successful student, don’t get discouraged, and don’t give up, just work to develop each of the study habits below and you’ll see your grades go up your knowledge increase, and your ability to learn will improve.


1. Stay organized

Successful students come to class with their materials organized. It’s a good idea to have different notebooks for each subject, and always keep extra pencils, pens, and highlighters. Disorganized students are known to stay old, crumpled assignments in their backpacks, so make sure to clean out your school bag periodically. Good organization is a common successful student habit!

2. Plan when you’re going to study.

Successful students schedule specific times throughout the week when they are going to study and then they stick with their schedule. Even if you’re all caught up with your studies, create a weekly routine, where you set aside a period of time a few days a week, to review your subjects to ensure you develop habits that will enable you to succeed in your education long term. 

Also, do not attempt to cram your studying into one session!

With Pandai, we have our personalized Live Help and Pandai Tutor to help students to access all subjects properly and finished the syllabus in time! Like our Live Tuition schedule that is so informative and easy to access by our Young Pandai so they can learn and manage their study better. 

3. Always review your notes!

Successful students review what they’ve learned. Always make sure to take good notes in class. Before you start each study session, review your notes thoroughly to make sure you know how to complete the homework correctly. Reviewing your notes before each study session will help you remember important subject matter learned during the day, and make sure your studying is targeted and effective.

This way they’re well prepared to continue learning new concepts that build upon previous homework and knowledge acquired. In Pandai, we believe in confidence hence we know that if you develop these habits, you’ll see a major improvement in your academic success.

4. Actively participate in class

Raise your hand, volunteer, and ask questions! Not only do our Pandai Teachers love students who participate, but these students also retain more information and will eventually better understand the material. Ultimately, these same students will develop a more positive outlook toward education by actively taking part in the learning process.

5. Sleep on time! 

Out of all the tips on this list, this could be the most important. Studies show that sleep plays an essential part in memory both before and after learning a new task. In Pandai, we also recommend you sleep for eight hours each night. There are loads of tips out there for falling and staying, asleep. But try simple things like avoiding caffeine after 12pm and turning off screens an hour before you want to fall asleep. 

Good luck!
