Ever wondered if we should really spend time making a plan, since many a time it looks like nothing works according to that!

To answer this, let’s understand what a good study plan is all about. 



Let’s remember that a study plan isn’t only a timetable that mentions the time to be spent on a particular subject. It should define a methodology to deal with preparation and challenges that we may have to encounter during this phase. It is important to have an analytical approach here. Here are few points that we could consider:

  • How many free hours do I have?
  • Which course material am I going to refer to?
  • How can I create an environment suitable for a fruitful study (for example one can choose to switch off the mobile phone during the study hours)
  • Is my study plan realistic with achievable learning goals?
  • Have I accounted for sufficient breaks?   
  • Can I alternate between learning concepts and self-evaluation (example through practice questions/ mock tests) to ensure learning is happening?
  • Can I ensure I am eating right to ensure I stay healthy during this phase?

Sometimes things might work out differently from what we had actually planned. However, this doesn’t mean we can get on to achieving a goal without a plan. Since, it is a plan that gives a direction, keeps us going, makes us foresee the challenges and enables us to come up with the solutions to address them!

 ‘No battle was ever won according to plan, but no battle was ever won without one.’

-Dwight D. Eisenhower
