There are a couple of approaches to move toward this issue, and I would tell from my own understanding as I needed to experience a great deal of tests throughout my life in IIT, and I had the option to make sure about position one in my group. Obviously notwithstanding understanding the subject, retention was a huge piece of my learning procedure.

Do this and you will memorize better and remember much longer.
If you find it difficult to retain and quickly forget what you learnt and make silly mistakes in exams It means you are doing it the wrong way - reading mechanically without understanding and absorbing. When it comes to answering even the simplest questions you draw blank.
How should you study
- Read slowly absorbing the concept.
- Read again and underline the key points n phrases.
- Mentally reproduce the topic.
- Write a summary.
Thus there will be four continuous readings and reviews and the topic will get deeply embedded in your brain,
- It is time to solve problems and answer questions. Answering questions will fill gaps in your understanding. Start with simple questions and proceed gradually to more complicated questions.
- If there is a diagram draw it with your own hand. Label it in details so that you are sure that you understand the concept.
- Move on to the next topic. Repeat the above process.
- Keep away from social networking sites. Don't spend over 10 minutes in a day.
- Keep your mobile on silent mode and away from you. Call back later. Let your friends understand.
- KEEP REVISING - Revise key points and tough material at least once a month. These are likely to be forgotten soon and need frequent revision. Else you may panic when it is exam time.

- Set apart two months for this.
- Leave 15 days for final revision.
- During first 45 days plan a Schedule for the entire course chapter wise. Do not allot more than 7 hours on a full day for this. Keep an evening free after every 3 days of concentrated study. It means average 5 hours a day.

- Solve previous years’ papers.
- Solve previous years’ papers.

The existing educational policies and studying pattern which are only limited to pen and paper tests force us to remember or memorize whatever we read distinctly and accurately. You must have often heard your teachers say to you, “the definition should be just as it is given in your textbook”. Our education system is more about cramming the things and vomiting them out on a sheet of paper which decides your future (near future at least).
