What can be done when you don’t understand a concept or find it difficult to memorize a long answer or a theoretical answer?

Repeating the readings is one way to gain an in-depth understanding. It may work for a specific concept and may not be feasible for other topics.

The best way to excel in difficult topics while studying for Board exams is to opt for Mind Map activity.

Mind mapping is one of the best learning techniques to capture all the scattered and/or crowded ideas into a visual form. It helps you to memorize sharp, and solve the problems effectively. More than that, it inculcates and refines your creativity.

Mind Mapping technique is also known as Spider Diagrams, Concept Mapping, Spray Diagrams or the Notetaking.

A mind map activity involves a drawing which connects all the information concerned to a subject. The diagram can be compared to a tree, wherein the trunk forms the main topic and the branches as the subtopics. The branches can be further extended for many levels and linked together.

For instance:

If you take India, Country is the core, from which branches like states arise, and internal branches form the districts, taluk, town, villages, and so forth. And, all these can be linked together.

As the mind map is compact, it helps you to associate the concepts quickly and recall them without fail as required. You can break the concept or project into smaller chunks to manage and remember appropriately by including all sensitive points.
