Though you’ll hardly get caught, make sure not to refer to this website if you get caught. Your juniors need the resources to be kept hidden from the teachers all around the globe.

4. DayDream: Begin your imagination and keep staring at the textbook.

This will require some imagination, that a student has the most.


Daydream, but make sure to sit next to an intelligent student who can help you in case the teacher starts asking you questions. Because some teachers are nightmares if you are sitting blank.

5. Or for a change start listening to your teacher.

Well, the best trick not to get bored is to actually start listening to what the teacher is trying to teach. And trust me, it really helps you in the exams, when you’ll suddenly remember that its the same thing I accidentally heard during a period.
Ask questions, respond to your teacher, sit straight, surprise everyone, make them ask themselves if you are the same person they were previously attending classes with. Impress your teacher, especially the pretty ones.

Food always helps. The brain loves when it gets some tasty snacks. So carry some packets chips, nuts to the class in case you want to indulge your mind into something.

Games for boring lectures:

Here is a list of mobile games you can enjoy in boring lectures. Games will refresh you and make you concentrate better in the coming lectures. There are millions of catchy games you can download and keep on your phone. Make sure to go to the app store to find the best game for you.

Interesting Apps to kill time:

  • Cut the rope
  • Untapped
  • Temple run
  • Angry birds

I would really like to recommend games like PubG, COD (Call of Duty) but it’s extremely hard to play these games without getting noticed from your lecturer. So I’ll recommend you to start with the list above and then slowly and gradually move to these highly interactive and attention-seeking games.
