1 – Classify important days by Topics

This is a very logical trick to remember important days for general exams when you have to cover a wide range of subjects and themes. To be specific, you will categorize days into different topics such as Environment, Health, Education, Family and so on.

Then, list all theme-related days of the year into their equivalent classification. Try to arrange the days in time order or similarities so you may see the link between them. Take the Environment theme as an example.

First, remember June 5 as World Environment Day (the biggest day of the topic).

Second, list out all related days to Environment as:

  • World Ozone Day – Sep 16
  • World Biodiversity Day – May 22
  • World Earth Day – April 22
  • World Water Day – March 22
  • World Meteorological Day – March 23
  • World Forest Day – March 21

Third, spot similarities among these days to help you remember faster. As you see, three days of Biodiversity, Earth, and Water can be learned together because they all fall on the date 22 in 3 months. Forest Day, Water, and Meteorological Day go together as well in 3 continuous days in March. The Ozone day stands separately on Sep 16.

2 – Make up a Story for important days

Another tip of how to remember important days for competitive exams is composing your own story to learn by heart, with all dates mentioned. For example, let us use these tricks to remember important days in January. Here is the list of dates to remember in this month:

  • Global Family Day & World Peace Day – Jan 1
  • World Braille Day – Jan 4
  • World War Orphans Day – Jan 6
  • NRI (Non Resident Indian) Day – Jan 9
  • National Human Trafficking Awareness Day – Jan 11

To learn by heart the list, we put it in a series of events like a story as followed:

On Jan 1st, Global Family of Peace got 4 Braille awards. 6 War Orphans were found while 9 Non-Resident Indians were caught against Human Trafficking on Jan 11.

As can be seen from the short story, all important dates in January are arranged by time order attached to their titles. By reading this, can you remember all celebrations in Jan yet?

However, this way of how to remember important days for competitive exams requires a lot of time and effort in collecting data, creating your own story and learning by heart every passage. It should not be adopted for long lists of days as well because too many details could make you confused.
