Some students prefer to study alone while others prefer to study in group. This choice is very personal and depends on the way in which the students personality is shaped. I prefer to study alone rather than with a group of students. My preference arises due to following facts:
Firstly I am a very introvert person. So I am unable to open up fast to any other human being. In group study one is required to interact with colleagues as much as required and is possible.
Secondly I have very distinct style of studying. First I always take down notes during lecture. Then I take out my own notes while studying. These both notes I compare and study. I get cleared my doubts by approaching the concerned professor. This style developed over the years makes me self-sufficient.
Thirdly, I am able to study better at night when all else are asleep. This gives me the most needed peace and time. At this unearthly hour it is impossible for any group to come together and study since each one have their own sleep schedule.
Fourthly, I am able to study well in the peaceful environment unlikely in the surrounding where there are many people discussing with each other their own doubts.
My preference is attributed to my personality. The way I was brought up and groomed has also influenced my ability to study alone rather than with group.
