How to stay focussed when studying for your Prince2 Exam

Project managementAs with any challenge, the Prince2 exam aims to improve your overall project management skills by teaching you the right techniques now when you need it most. However, as with any exam, your brain tends to get tired; similar to a normal physical workout. So in order to get you through your Prince2 exam successfully, follow the five helpful tips below for optimal performance:

 

1. Get your daily push-ups in

Get the blood flowing to your brain by working out before your study session. Studies show that adequate amounts of exercise gets blood flowing to your brain which helps keep you alert during study sessions. This will even help you to study through a long night of studying! However, this goes along with eating a balanced diet and getting enough sleep when your body tells you it’s time. Always listen to your body.

2. Eat healthy snacks

Feed your brain the right amounts of ‘brain food’ by introducing protein-rich options into your diet, instead of snacking on sugary snacks which will only cause you to crash after your sugar-high. As staying focussed is the goal, make sure to add peanut butter and biltong into your snack selection. This will not only help your brain function better, but it’ll keep your mouth from drying out.

3. Open your curtains

Keep your brain fresh by studying in bright light, even when the sun has set. This will trick your circadian rhythm into thinking the sun is still out, helping you to study for longer when you have that last little stretch of studying left to do. Remember to rest your eyes every once in a while to avoid strain, and keep your sugar levels up with healthy snacks.

4. Limit your caffeine intake

Not only is drinking small amounts of caffeine over a longer period healthier than trying to cram it all in in one go,  studies also suggest that small quantities over a spread-out period will keep you awake for longer. So you don’t have to eliminate coffee completely, especially not if you really enjoy your daily dose of caffeine, you just need to learn how to enjoy it to get maximum results.

5. Take a walk around the block

It’s better to take a break when you feel your brain getting tired than trying to push through as you most likely will not remember half of what you read. Give your brain a break and take a walk around the block, or stimulate your brain in a different way until you can get back to studying again. At the end of the day, it’s more important to take frequent breaks than study when you’re tired.
