1. If you're at home, try to not wear pajamas while you study.
Being comfortable is important, but if you wear pajamas there's a higher chance you're going to be lazy.
2. Don't listen to music you know and love.
If you love a song, chances are you know all the lyrics and subconsciously you're thinking about the next lyric before it even plays. Try instrumental music, or songs you don't often listen to, to help clear your mind.
3. Try turning your phone on airplane mode.
As notifications pop up on your phone, you stop studying to read them. Eight hours later, you're deep into your Instagram feed with zero work done. So just pop it on airplane mode for a while to keep you distraction-free.
4. Create a guide of what to study and when.
Planners are a good way to map out which subjects you should study and for how long. Planning it out helps you not feel too overwhelmed by everything you need to do.
5. Stick important bits of information you need to remember in places that you look at often.
Put up need-to-know information like formulas, dates, and legislation on walls that you find yourself looking at all the time. Stick the notes in places you frequent often, like your bedroom and bathroom, to force yourself to read them.
6. Use different colored highlighters, but only to highlight the important things.
Different colors for different themes and ideas will help you remember things at first glance when you go to revise them. Also highlighting as little as possible means you're most likely to retain the most important information.
7. Use Post-It notes to jot down information you're having a tough time remembering.
If you write down the information and stick it somewhere you always see, you'll start consuming it more. The more you consume it, the more likely you'll be to remember it.
8. Schedule a solid block of sleep in your study plans.
While the concept of an all-nighter may seem appealing, the more tired you are the worse your memory will be. Aim for a good eight hours to ensure that your body is well-rested and your mind is alert.
9. Where possible, try to hand write your notes.
Handwriting your notes helps you remember what you're writing as you do them. If writing out chunks of text isn't your style, try writing out flash cards and using them to study.

I minimized the list to the ones that work the most and best for me, so hope you get good grades on your next test!
