Study tip: Tackle your least favourite topics firstPosted on 22/05/2018 by Jess O'Connor
Ever heard of the saying “eat your vegetables first?” Your parents were right: it’s good for you to eat your greens before anything else. Because if you don’t eat them first, you might never eat them at all.
A similar concept applies to studying: tackle your least favourite topics first. Work on the topics you like the least before you move on to your favourite subjects.
This might mean starting a challenging assignment before an easier one, or skipping all the ‘easy’ questions on a test and beginning with the questions you find the most difficult.
In other words, look for the ‘broccoli’ in each assignment and get that out of the way before you move on to sweeter subjects.
Here are just some of the benefits of tackling your least favourite topics first:
- You’ll feel a sense of relief and accomplishment once you’ve answered a challenging question. It will be as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders.
- It will give you a confidence boost and a sense of pride. If you can do your hardest assignment, you can do anything.
- You will be less tempted to procrastinate.
- It gives you plenty of time to ask your tutors for help and further clarification.
- You can relax in the knowledge that easier topics are on the horizon.
Often the hardest part is getting started. Who knows, once you sit down to study you might actually find that the topic isn’t so difficult, after all!
