The problem is I have poor memory

I’m a Class X student of a CBSE school. The problem is I have poor memory. Whatever I study, I can’t remember it for a long time. Worse, I cannot remember long answers in the right sequence. What can I do? Please help me, I am very anxious about Boards.

It must be really very upsetting when you forget what you have learnt. This will create a lot of anxiety. A lot depends on your study pattern. It is not the number of hours you spend studying but the quality of your study time that matters. A schedule for studying always helps. Last-minute preparation will create anxiety and and you might not be able to remember or recollect the content. Long hours of study is also not good. Taking a break after every 30 to 45 min is recommended. A proper place of study without distractions is also important. Reduce screen time and the use of gadgets. Go for a walk to refresh yourself when you are studying. In order to remember long answer, make notes and use mindmaps to remember the content. You can make mindmaps with colours, doodling etc. To easily recollect content. Chunking is also helpful – this is a method of learning and recollecting in parts. Do not learn the long answers in one shot. Break them up into smaller segments. This will reduce your anxiety and you can remember answer better. Practise well by doing model examination papers to build your confidence. A calm mind is necessary to study and perform well. Breathing exercises, relaxation techniques and yoga are recommended for better body-mind coordination.
