Exams are close and I am sure most of you don’t even know about it. I know I didn’t!

What if you never had to worry about chit-tactics? What if you could remember those crucial topics for the rest of your lives? What if I told you that you could actually have lots of fun while group studying and remember every single thing taught in class?

A little Rakhi Sawant, a dash of Katrina Kaif, a swish of Sallu Bhai and top it off with Bugs Bunny… yep, that is all it takes to nail any exam!

Controversial people are good!

You know Maslow’s Hierarchy Theory? Now try putting in Rakhi Sawant into the equation and imagine what her basic, security, social, luxury and Self-actualization needs would be like.

Her basic need – a meter of cloth to cover herself…for the whole year.
Her security need – a few item numbers for financial stability.
Her social need – another ‘how dare Mika Singh’ issue for publicity.
Her luxury need – it's Rakhi Sawant, anything will do here.
Her Self Actualization need – her very own talk show where people fight their guts out remember their dear mums and sisters.

Fun it up!

The easiest way to recall lengthy bullet points is by making a story out of it. Let’s say you want to memorize Fayol’s 14 principles ofmanagement. Let’s discuss a few principles

1. Unity of Direction: Bugs Bunny gives orders to workers who are Salman Khan, Sanjay Dutt etc.

2. Remuneration: Bugs Bunny throws Katrina Kaif, Zarine Khan etc. towards Salman Khan.

3.Espirit De Corps: Bugs Bunny makes Salman Khan and SRK kiss each other.

Make it ridiculously funny and you will remember each point in ascending or descending order and to the last word.

Bugs Bunny works best for Principles of Gravity as well. ;)

Sing the hell out of it!

Pick your favourite song and sing important notes in the same tone. Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ for example would do wonders with history and economics.

Family to the rescue

You know how annoying parents can get with following up on your studies? Well it’s time to get them involved. Talk to them about what you learnt from your classes so far. Make a conversation out of it. For best results, involve annoying relatives as well.
It makes you look cool.

Don’t be surprised if your parents secretly stay out of your sight.

Facebook/Twitter for the greater cause!

Let’s face it, you break your head for that awesome status message for those awesome likes. Well, now is the time to make a funny status update out of something you learnt. 

These tips can make you and the people around you crazy. Use at your risk.

All the best!
