Organic chemistry! Doesn’t this subject make you feel feared about it and its topics? Yes, I know that organic chemistry is no one’s favourite subject. It is very commonly heard about short horror stories that students disclose about this subject. Their struggle with this subject is also not unknown to me.
The horrible chemical reactions, components nothing, seems to be easy on this subject. But students will be shocked to know that all these things happen only when they try to mugup the whole thing. Obviously, it will be tough to mug up everything. Rather than mugging up the best thing can be done going through the chapters thoroughly and getting the basic concept.
There are several steps involved to learn organic chemistry. Some of them are:
- Learn by heart
- Getting the concepts in
- Knowing to apply concepts properly
- Studying and Assessing
- Creating rules of own
These are five keys to open the doors of success to achieve organic chemistry. Applying all thesepoints mentioned above is not that tough, but the main thing required for that is efficiency and an appropriate attitude towards it. Obviously, there are hardly students who feel excited at the thought of learning organic chemistry.
But it is very important to carry a positive attitude towards this subject. Because if students aredemoralised at the beginning then how they could move forward with it. Parents must play a vital role in such cases. It is their part to encourage students and make them realise that there is nothing to fear this subject.
The very next thing is working on hick-ups. It is undeniable that this subject contains many tough things that are so tough to understand. But that does not mean to ignore that part. That will need patience to understand different topics and then solve them honestly. Yes, I mentioned the word honestly.
Many times I have noticed many students copying from here and there or checking answers and finally managing to solve the answer. But this is not the way. If this is the way, then students will be in immense danger during exams.
Solve the tough ones properly. If required take help from teachers or any other sources. First of all read the question several times. Try to understand what the question mean. Then break questions into several parts and solve one by one. You will see there will be no doubts left anymore. And even if you cannot solve then take expert help from teachers.
Though most of the students now avail online help. That is like finding the best online professional tutor, submitting the problem to them. Then all the necessary information will be available to the student in no time. Just matter of few hours and dollars!
The best part is their 24×7 online customer service that helps the most to solve all minor problems in this subject. But whatever the help may be online or offline the main point is to solve the problem and to get the concepts clearly.
I have even seen few students doing group study. That is also equally helpful. One can discuss all the positive and negative parts of the subject, and they solve any issues together. But group study has got a drawback. That is most of the times due to the lack of seriousness in students end up chatting and giggling hence failing to fulfil original target.
The next important thing is keeping pace with teachers. What I mean to say is the student must not lag behind. Now again it is a part of parents to supervise the actions of their kids. What’s being taught at school must be studied at home otherwise, they cannot keep pace with the huge syllabus.
Once they lag behind then, there will be immense pressure on the child which will lead to frustration and unlikeliness for this subject. Once they get de-touched from the subject, it will be impossible to cope up with the subject.
So it is always advisable to move with the school. To learn new things and revise old ones should be done carefully. That will prove so much helpful before the exams. These techniques will also increase the confidence level of the students. So studying in the right way will improve all the aspects of problems regarding the subject.
It is okay that students have private tuitions, but that does not make any sense not to attend the classes. Classes are real deal important. So I will never support to miss the classes. Rather I will suggest the students and also their parents that make your kids attend regular classes; they have got to learn a lot from there. But being dumb and numb in class will not help. You need to be active and smart.
Ask questions to your teachers wherever you feel stuck or doubtful. Just stop being silly and think that the teacher will get angry. No! Teachers are there to help the students when they get into troubles. Note down all the equations and practice them at home. These improvements will be noticeable I bet. 8 tricks to learn Physics that your teacher won’t tell you can give some more ideas on how to handle another tough subject like physics.
So I have given my views regarding the so-called tough subject. So work hard and follow these rules, success will follow within a while!
