Most students have been complaining that they fail these and that,even to the extent that 47% was recorded for pass grade at the just concluded G.C.E. WAEC,Our guidelines will help you to read and understand.
Take your pen as you read,it goes thus :
1.Take Away all distractions:
Don't allow your brain and your body at large to be distracted by Gf/BF,Food,family problems e.t.c. when reading,
One brain can't do more than one things perfectly at a time,your brain is not a machine[even machines do rest] avoid over using it. When you are reading,focus with one mind and avoid diversion. Moreso,some students are also distracted by meaningless things like games,social medias e.t.c. When reading,that shouldn't be,focus your brain on what you are reading
2.Take A respite:- An adage says "All work and no play makes jack a dull boy". After reading for like 45 to 60mins,take a respite and relax,don't over use your memory by reading for 6hrs without stopping. USE YOUR Brain wisely. When you relax for about 15mins,come back fresh and excited.
3.Summarize what you read:
Take a brief upshot of what you read,some books might be tedious that you might not want to read again,take brief note of some keywords on what you read and write them down,it really helps.

4. Read at the best time easy for you :
God created us in different ways but thesame patterns,Don't read when you hate most like in the midnight when most people hate,don't inconvinient yourself and know when you assimilate what you read most. Like me now,it is in the MORNING. Discover yourself!
5.If possible,read in groups:
Sometimes,you may feel bored when you read alone,call your friends and mates so that you can read together but don't misuse the opportunity by playing and gisting for fun when you ought to be reading,you can only gist when on respite
6.Use Dictionaries when reading :
Most of the times when you read,it is not advicable to use dictionaries because it waste time and distracts attention but there are some courses you need it e.g. GEOLOGY: Words like seismometer e.t.c.
7.Ask yourself questions on what you read after reading :
An adage also says "Without an Exam/ TEST,No success,test yourself on what you read by asking yourself question on it,just like revising.
8.Create the habit of reading at least twice a a day :
At times,when you read a topic today and continue it tommorow,you may still forget what you read,just read twice a day and there is every possibility you may never forget what you read again
9.Don't be forced to read :
This is mostly applicable to secondary school students,why should they force you to read? ! When they force you to read,you can't even understand what you read and it also leads to creating some hatred habits towards the course
