How to remember what you read?

We all know student life’s the most precious moment of our life. But one question bothered all the students. How to remember what I have read? What I do, even after reading everything, I can’t remember anything. Or I forget all I have remembered after going to the examination hall.  Even when the condition becomes worse.  When the design of the page and paragraph of the book is remembered. But the content is forgotten. So if you are also a victim of forgetting what you read. And want to know how to remember what you study? Then this article is for you. 


How to remember what you read


In this article, I am going to tell you about three habits. Which will boost your memory power. And will also save you from the pressure of the examination hall. These three are not new habits. These habits are used by our elders from many times. To boost their memory. But we are forgetting old habits in search of new ones.  Because this is human psychology. That we have a habit of out the gee from a bottle with a crooked finger.  While humans invented the spoon long ago. So now the time has come to know about the 3 habits. 


3 powerful habits to remember what you read. 


 The first habit is Repetition.


Yes, we do everything. We buy expensive books, watch videos, do online classes, and try to collect as much information as possible.  Some people are even smarter. They prepare smartly. This means focusing on smart study rather than more study. But when the question of repetition comes out. No one likes to do repetition. Because repetition is the most boring thing. And because of this, we forget what we have read.


So my friend, even if you read less or read more. It is necessary to repeat it to remember it. There are some advantages to repeating.  


Firstly it will sharpen your memory.  

Secondly, it will improve your reading speed and pronunciation. 

Thirdly it will make your speech quality perfect.  


Like if I record the script of a video. Without repeating it again and again. So there are many possibilities for that. I will make mistakes many times. My speech quality will be poor, and I will have to do a lot of editing.


But one question that also pinches in our minds and puts us in a dilemma. About the repeating process. That, how to repeat and how many times to repeat. Well, it depends on your brain power. Some people remember things quickly.  And some late. So for your convenience. I am going to share a scientifically proven pattern to repeat. In which.


You can do the first repetition in 24 hours, the second in a week, the third in 16 days, and the fourth in 36 days.

Second habit is writing. 


This is the demerit of doing the oral repetition.  That as you move forward, you will forget the things behind your study. This has been found in scientific research. That our memory is not maintained forever. We memorize it as much as we can. The stronger our memory becomes. And when we do not remember it, another memory takes the place of that memory.  But the same when you repeat anything by writing.  So the script will keep getting fit word by word in your subconscious mind.


And you will not believe it. You will get to see its miracle in the examination hall. When you feel that I don’t remember anything, or you get stuck somewhere. Even then your pen will keep running automatically. Because your subconscious mind remembers the command of writing. Even if your brain forgets it for a while. If you do not believe it, then after following these three habits, definitely comment. Whether you benefit from it or not. There are also some advantages to writing 


First, by repeatedly writing the answer, there is continuous improvement in it.  

Second, you also come to know your mistake. 

Third, it fits in your mind, that’s why you can retain it for a long time.


The third habit is testing. 


Yes, this is the last step in all three habits.  Which will help you in knowing that. What you have memorized. Do you remember it or not?  This is definitely the last step. But decide your success and failure. Because somewhere, I am also a victim of not doing this work. Because when you go to an exam without testing yourself. Go to the examination hall. So the chances of failure are high. Examination pressure makes you completely blank.  Even though you remember everything. But you come back doing everything wrong.


So please understand the importance of mock tests or pre-tests. Do test yourself at least once a month.  Which helps you to test. What you have remembered.  And you will also get used to bearing the pressure of the examination hall.  And lastly, it will also boost your confidence level.


So no matter how smartly you prepare. No matter how much in advance you complete your syllabus. If you do not use these three habits. Repetition, write, and test. So the question is how to remember what you have read. It will always be a puzzle for you.

Best of luck.
