Common problems students face during their studies include how to study effectively, coping with the amount of reading , how to manage their time, avoiding procrastination and distractions, and improving their concentration. The ability to focus the mind is one of the most important abilities one should possess. An important factor in being able to complete any task relates to one’s ability to concentrate on that task.
As a matter of fact, most people lack the ability to concentrate. Their attention usually wanders, without being able to fix it on one subject for any reasonable period of time. A problem many people have is that they become easily distracted such that they do not focus at the task at hand. They do not finish what they want to do.
This can be seen very clearly among students and pupils, who do not manage to pass exams and decide to quit from schools/universities. According to the Report “Education and Training in Europe 2020” prepared by EC, in 2012, the EU-28 average for the population aged 18-24 with lower secondary education at most and not currently in further education or training was 12.7 %. Solution for that may be show these young people how they can learn more effectively.
