by Zona 13,556 views1

I’m sure it is common knowledge that we need a conductive environment to release our best potential when we study. Especially during exam period, libraries and cafes are usually jam-packed with students studying on the weekdays, I don’t think I even need to mention about the weekends.

So, where are the unconventional study spots in Singapore to avoid noises and crowds, while providing you with the comfort? Here are some not-so-hidden corners you probably didn’t know.

1. Study Area @ JCube

The study area at JCube is the most ideal spot for me. I hate having to pay for a drink or meal at cafes, because if you think about it, you’ll be doing so almost every single day during exam period. You don’t want to be stressing about your wallet when you already have enough on your plate.

With tables, benches, and air-conditioner available for free, JCube provides a pretty sweet environment to mug for your paper.

TIP: Avoid peak hours and weekends, as that’s when the crowd will arrive — Way too noisy to concentrate.

2. Singapore Management University (SMU)

Since Changi Airport is open to public and air-conditioned 24/7, this is a foolproof location to burn your midnight oil! Even though there are signs that warn students not to study there, hit the books while you can.

Wilkie Edge is pretty much a ghost town during the weekends as the students are not there. The Each A Cup outlet there provides you with tables and chairs for you to do all your mugging. There’s no one there whenever I pass by, so it’s really a great location. Although there’s only free WiFi available for students, you can try to connect to the weak Starbucks WiFi.

WiFi: Yes (Starbucks WiFi)
Power points: No
Address: 8 Wilkie Road #01-06, S(228095)
Tel: 9816 3863

Well all know exam periods and study breaks are the toughest part of school. The endless mugging and cramming of information can really get to you, but remember that the amount of effort you put in now will determine what you’ll get. All the best!
