Top Tips for levelling up as a student
Our dynamic and crazy world has taught us how important it is to commit to being an avid
learner. Things change so quickly and this demands that we change and adapt and learn to
stay relevant and to stay successful. Education is the most powerful tool we have to adapt
to changing times and to take actions that empower us in our lives.
We are all students and will always be students. Whether you are pursuing education in
formal schooling or you are exploring alternative channels for learning it is vital that you
have the best method for learning to ensure that what you learn you remember and apply
effectively. So I ask, how do you learn? What methods and tools do you use to ensure that
you learn what you want to and achieve the results you want?
If you are like many students studying and examinations are the great pain point of learning.
These topics bring up feelings of frustration and overwhelm. However, they do not need to
be this painful. Did you know that there are different methods of learning that can actually
make studying easier, enjoyable and effective leading you to obtain the best results you can
and create new and exciting opportunities in your own life? Of course there are and I am
here to teach them to you.
Tips for levelling up as a student:
1. Improve memory
Memory is the foundation of all learning and yet most of us neglect this vital life skill. We
fall prey to voice notes, Google and diaries and forgot to keep developing our ability to
remember. Did you know that our brains have unlimited storage capacity and that we have
long-term memory? We have the ability to remember vast amounts of information over
long periods of time. There are many ways to enhance your memory and it is important to
keep working your “memory muscle”. So step one in becoming a better student is to
improve your memory.
Albert Einstein said that “if you cannot explain it simply you do not understand it well
enough.” You need to practice converting all the content you need to learn into its simplest
form and in doing so you will understand it better as well. Second step would be to imagine
you are teaching a young child and explain your work to them using simple language anyone
3. Find a method that works
No, cramming and learning off by heart are not effective methods and are definitely not
long-term strategies if you are to be a top performing academic. You have the potential to
be a top student and achieve the results you desire. Why? Because top results mean more
opportunities for your future. Better universities, scholarships, overseas studies, job offers,
business partners and definitely improved thinking ability enabling you to see solutions to
problems others do not see. An effective method that ignites long-term memory and
develops higher order thinking is Ascend’s Whole Brain Learning methods. These study
methods enable you to learn how you learn best by using simple to use and effective
methods that help you improve your results and confidence as a student. Third, find a
method that works well.
4. Get a coach to help you reach you unlock your highest potential
Finally, think of yourself as a professional student. Professional athletes and even executives
in top companies know the value of having their own coach to help take them where they
could not go on their own. An academic coach can assist you in assessing your learning
methods, tackling any self-imposed limits and inspiring you to strive to be and do more in
your life and career. Lastly, leverage the power of a coach.
Endeavoring to be a better student is valuable as it teaches you vital life skills such as grit,
organization and thinking quickly under pressure. Education teaches you to think better and
when you think better you are able to make better choices in your life and create a happier
and more successful life for yourself and your family. When you are a top student you have
more doors of opportunity open to you and your world expands tenfold. I am passionate
about learning and coaching other students to be the best they can whilst unlocking their
innate potential. If you are a student wanting to take your ability to the next level and
