Studying at the university is a continuous evaluation that deserves the best of you to perform at your best. Therefore, it is not necessary to wait for the exam period to be fully prepared for the evaluations, on the contrary, it is highly recommended to start much earlier to achieve the best results.
For that reason, today at The LoftTown, your university residence in Barcelona, we share a list with the best tips so that during exam times you get the results you always wanted.
Are you ready to get the best grades in college with us? Next, take note of 7 important tips that you cannot miss.
Welcome to a new blog post with the best tips for our #TheLoftowners!
Tip 1: Prioritize comfort and privacy
Studying without comfort is inconceivable. Study consists of remaining seated and in the same position for long periods of time. Therefore, we recommend that you find an ideal place to study that gives you total comfort.
Otherwise, you will find yourself in the short term with small physical discomforts that will directly affect your productivity. Another important detail is to have adequate lighting so as not to damage your eyesight by straining it too much while you read.
Tip 2: Say goodbye to distractions
Studying is an act of full concentration. So, keep in mind that when you want to perform at your best you should put aside all kinds of distractions, we are talking mainly about the mobile phone and social networks, unless it is not strictly necessary for your study when you do not have the computer near you.
Likewise, to avoid possible distractions where you live, such as your roommates or your partner, choose a more comfortable option such as coworking spaces or libraries that we have shared with you in previous articles
Tip 3: Choose your study space
Were you a day person or a night owl? You should find out if you are able to concentrate better in the early hours of the morning, during the day, or at night.
It’s also helpful to study at a similar time each day to create a routine. And of course, the time that you are not studying should be dedicated to resting, sleeping well, and a little free time during the day, is not bad to clear your head.
Tip 4: Control your time
Managing your time well is a fundamental task when you are a student. It is useless to leave everything until the end as is usual in many students, for example the day before the exam studying all night, since it is not an intelligent or productive solution and it usually does not give good results.
Our recommendation is that you have a strategic study calendar. This way you can study systematically, assigning a number of topics for each day. In this way, the long-term results will be more than fruitful as well as your exam grades.
Tip 5: Get enough rest
A full and pleasant rest is a synonym of success when you are a student. Sometimes there can come a point where you feel stuck or just tired because you’re pushing yourself harder than you need to. Our recommendation is that you rest well to perform better.
And when we talk about rest, we mean a time for you enjoying a complete disconnection, especially from mobile and social networks. Take note of this advice and you will see how you start to perform better in exams.
Tip 6: Study in a group
They say that the union makes the force. Then, it is the perfect time for you to turn to your classmates to solve doubts and study together. It is proven that sharing knowledge and reviewing at the same time, you learn more and better.
Also, do not forget that in any case what is always important is to have good study material, adequate bibliography, good clear and orderly notes, summaries in which the most relevant topics are collected.
Tip 7: Check every day
Studying is not a mechanical action but on the contrary a discipline as in any other human activity. For this reason, we always recommend reviewing the topics learned every day, even slightly, since this way you will be saving necessary information in your memory
Remember that studying doesn’t have to be difficult and stressful, especially when you’re properly prepared. It is about trusting yourself and all the knowledge you have continuously acquired throughout the academic year.
Are you ready to get the best grades in your next exams?
Yes! And we hope that with this post today you are ready to only receive notables with us.

Photographic exhibition at the Mapfre Foundation
If you like photography, you have probably heard of Marta Dahó. We are referring to a curator and graduate in Art History, famous in the world of Photography, who has organized an intensive series of online conferences in March in collaboration with the prestigious KBr Photography Center of the Mapfre Foundation.
In this photographic cycle we want to highlight the relationship between photography and exhibition from all historiographical and theoretical perspectives. Then, the conferences will take place every Tuesday in March and will continue even during the month of April, also in the native language of each guest and will be completely free.
So if you like photography and want to delve into the theme of the exhibitions, whether you are a photographer or an amateur, we encourage you to sign up for each presentation and conference. We are sure that you will learn a lot.
Feminist Museums in March
March also means that it is the month of women. For this reason, in Barcelona there will be nine museums in the city that this 2022 will again join the International Women’s Day, to celebrate the feminist cycle ‘Little stories, great women’.
We refer to a series of videos in the form of stories that deal with the history of women who are leaders in today’s world, both in culture, sports, science and the arts.
On this occasion, it should be noted that it has been organized in a completely virtual way, so that all those interested can follow the storytellers through the YouTube channel of Little stories, great women. Take note because the appointment begins next Monday, March 8 with a well-deserved: Happy Day to all Women!
Concerts against gender violence in Barcelona
We continue with feminist issues and the defense of women’s rights. In this sense, music is not an exception to raise the voice of support for women. For this reason, one more year, the mythical Luz de Gas room will offer a live concert with a solidarity motive against gender violence.
So take note because next Monday, March 8, on International Women’s Day, the curtain will be opened by singer Maria del Mar Bonet and other established artists such as Mayte Martín, Gemma Humet, Beth, Sara Roy, Elena Gadel & Marta Robles and Balkan Paradise Orchestra.
Don’t miss the Market Vintage BooM
To all the fans of the vintage concept, we tell you that March is full of very interesting markets in the city. For example, if you are one of those who prefer vintage clothing markets and especially bargains, make a good note in your diaries because for yet another year Nau Bostik becomes the epicenter of second-hand clothing in Barcelona.
So next Thursday, March 4, we invite you to enjoy the BooM Market, where this year there are more than 100 exhibitors with the best vintage clothing at incredible prices.
Plans for moviefans
Watching a series at home is not bad at all. But going to the movies is a unique experience that has no comparison. That is why below, we tell you what are the movies that you can enjoy this March. Take note!
Drive my car
Ryûsuke Hamaguchi shares a Murakami short story and magically expands it into three captivating hours (the credits don’t roll until the 40th minute!). Reeling from the sudden death of his screenwriter wife, Oto, theater director Yusuke heads to Hiroshima to stage ‘Uncle Vanya’ with his young chauffeur. The genius of the film is how the script takes the themes of Murakami’s story (loss, love, jealousy, healing) and finds an echo in Chekhov’s famous work.
Paul Thomas Anderson’s most acclaimed film to date is this San Fernando Valley palimpsest with so many bubbles it practically bursts off the screen. The biggest blow to ‘Licorice Pizza,’ however, is its casting. Alana Haim of the Haim group is Alana Kane, 25, a photographer’s assistant bewildered to run into Gary Valentine, a high school student ten years her junior.
Los ojos de Tammy Faye
A gorgeous Jessica Chastain is the queen of the party in this biopic about a popular televangelist in America in the 1970s and 1980s. Tammy Faye Bakker and her husband, Jim, built a religious empire from scratch with feet of clay, with a network of television networks that connected with his program and even with a theme park project dedicated to the evangelical faith. Andrew Garfield accompanies Chastain in an x-ray of the fragility of the American dream.
Marc Sempere and Leire Apellaniz show the viewer their fascination for an innovative artist in a film that escapes the usual portrait to talk about the personality and work of Niño de Elche, but also about the shock wave that the musician provokes in his path. A look that allows us to understand the impact of this creator, to photograph the cultural moment that Spain is experiencing, and to make a profound reflection on the role of tradition and heterodoxy in an art such as flamenco.
Sony hands over the start of a new franchise to the newest goose that lays the golden eggs, Tom Holland. The protagonist of ‘Spider-Man: No way home’, the only movie capable of recovering pre-pandemic collections, puts himself in the shoes of an adventurer who travels the world as a treasure hunter. With Mark Wahlberg as a partner in adventures and Antonio Banderas as the bad guy, this version of a popular video game aims to break the bad luck of other failed adaptations, such as ‘Tomb raider’ or ‘Assassin’s creed’.
A loud shout at this year’s Oscars. Here’s proof that animation can take on the world just as precisely as it delivers magical flights of fancy. ‘Flee’, by Jonas Poher Rasmussen, tells the story of the French-Danish director’s friend, a gay Afghan refugee who is desperately trying to escape the tyranny of the mujahideen and come to terms with his own sexuality. Possibly the most political film of the year.
Cycle of the Filmoteca of Catalunya in March
For the most romantic who prefer classic cinema in an unmistakable place, pay attention because the Filmoteca de Catalunya in March brings you a very interesting program that you should not miss.
Among other contents, the retrospectives of Theo Angelopoulos, Kelly Reichardt, within the framework of the famous Americana Film Fest, Jean-Claude Rousseau, with the collaboration of Xcèntric and Zumzeig, as well as the Dostopos collective in ‘Short Days’, the exhibition ‘ The keys to the still photo.
In addition, it also highlights the cycle of Spanish Cinema of the 40’s and the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Drac Màgic in its children’s programming. Undoubtedly, the best way to enjoy cinema as you always wanted can be found at the Filmoteca de Catalunya
A dose of theater
If you like the theater you should know that Barcelona offers you a great theatrical offer that you should not miss.
For example, in March you can enjoy the play by acclaimed British playwright Caryl Churchill, who tells the story of a dysfunctional family made up of a mother, father and aunt who are at home waiting for their daughter Susy to return from far away. Australia.
In this waiting situation, all the characters can do is think and imagine what will happen in a few minutes. With Albert Pérez, Vanessa Segura, Alícia Puertas, Marc Tarrida and Sara Morera.
Teatre Neu and its great theatrical offer
A classic for theater lovers throughout the year is undoubtedly the Teatre Neu de Gracia. A unique place in the city that offers you all kinds of staging so you can have a laugh and have a great time.
If what you are looking for is a good dose of humor and comedy at the highest level, come to the Neu theater where you will always find a perfect performance for your mood, whenever you want and with whomever you want.
