Every phase in life is a learning. Whether you intend to or not, you end up learning something new every single day, in every single thing you do. Even if it is something you do regularly, you will learn how to do it more efficiently, what not to do, etc.

When you intend to learn something new, you need to put in the required effort and show interest to learn. Asking questions and clarifying your doubts is one of the best ways to learn effectively. When you question, you leave no room for assumptions and wrong inferences. This is crucial for learning.

How To Do It

When you intend to learn something new at work or college, it need not be serious. You can make it a fun and entertaining question game, so that all are relaxed and people don’t perceive you as too serious.

Here is a list of fun questions you can ask at your new workplace:

  • Where can I go to eat good food, while am hiding away from my boss?
  • Who is the best person to go to when I can’t handle my boss’ tantrums?
  • How can I pacify my angry boss and save my job?
  • What really irks my boss?
  • Where do they store the good stuff in the pantry?
  • If I have to choose a team for the corporate events, who will help me win and who will help me have fun?
  • How do I not get noticed when I arrive late for work?

Asking these questions will reveal a lot about your new work place and your co-workers will not feel you are being too intruding. This makes for a nice ice breaking session as well as lightens up the usual office mood.

Get to know people around you better, with the right set of questions. You can come with such a list for different groups of people too.

Exams and tests should be one of the focus of high school students. However, with increasing difficulty of getting into college students are under more and more pressure to be the best, get the best grades and excel in all subjects at school. The aim of this article is to help guide you and give you a few tips on how to study effectively.

  1. Know what you need to achieve. Find out the specifics of the test. Know every detail you need to know and only study that. Sometimes teachers make test preparation hints quite vague therefore try asking them specific questions about the test so that you can narrow some topics down. In case of SAT’s you will always know the topic that you need to learn. Go online, research previous SAT’s that are available, look at the requirements and memorize it all if you have to!
  2. Don’t be afraid to get help. Studying works much better if you have someone to discuss the topics with. Also, studies have shown that you learn better when you teach other people. My advice is to get together with other students (2-3 is plenty) and have group study sessions weekly. Another way to do this it to get a tutor. My math tutor really helped me get out of my comfort zone to discuss the math problems and really understand them, I was the best in class after that.
  3. Don’t overdo it. Wake up, get ready and go to study fresh and early in the morning. Do not stay late as it will just drain you so much that you will not want to do this the next day. Make it seem to yourself as studying is easy. Do intensive, hard-working study days and the go home to relax and get ready to do it again the next day!

Once you know what you want to do after school and which university you wan tto get into, you will have to start working hard towards it. One cannot take this journey lightly as this is important and can really shape your future.

The college you get into, the course you take determines what you are going to be doing rest of your lives. One can practice a profession that is only related to what they studied. So if you have a dream in mind, it is important for you to start working towards achieving it.

When it was time to take my SATs, I took help of a professional tutor. This sat tutor helped me get great results. Here are a few tips to help you get into the University of your Choice:

  • Find out the application dates of various Universities. Knowing just about that one University will not suffice. One should always have a few backups as everyone is not lucky enough to get into a university that is their first choice. Sometimes one can even get into a better University than anticipated.
  • Note down these dates on a calendar in front of you, that you are bound to see on a daily basis. This way you will not forget the application dates and it will also be a constant reminder for you to work harder as the dates get closer
  • Once you get the applications, note down the submission dates. Universities will not accept late applications, because they don’t have the need. They will have more applicants than they can accept and giving a chance for unpunctuality is not need
  • Note down the carious requirements by each university and start preparing your resume accordingly. Different universities have different requirements in addition to just your bio data and SAT scores. Ensure you get those in order in time to submit the application.
