I live in a hostel and shares room with another mate. What should I do to increase my study hours? He finds annoying when lights are on.

When this used to happen with my roommate, I did three different things. 1. Studied in the lit dorm hallway. 2. Studied at a nearby library, friend's room, or restaurant. 3. Used a flashlight. They make awesome little ones that clip onto your shirt or hat. Best of luck to you!

Perhaps you could talk to him and explain how you really need to study, although he may deny this still. If he doesn't accept your explanation, try to find other places (like a communal lounge, or a library) to study that will ideally promote thinking and memorising.
