How to Prepare for exam

Exam Writing Tip 1

Read & Understand the Instructions

ALWAYS read the instructions carefully.  Many students do not take the time to do this and then discover that they did the exam incorrectly.  Are you required to select a certain number of questions to answer or do you have to answer all of them?  Is there a penalty for guessing (i.e., right minus wrong)?  Ask for clarification if you are unsure.

            

Exam Writing Tip 2

Preview the Exam & Budget Your Time Accordingly

Note the number of questions and what they’re worth.  Quickly reading over the questions will assist in activating your memory.  Decide which questions will be easier to do and which ones will take more time, and budget your time.  Allot time to review the exam and make corrections.  If you think of something as you preview, write it down immediately.

 

Exam Writing Tip 3

Attack Each Question Systematically

Read each question carefully, underlining key words.  Is it a one-part or two-part question?  What are you being asked to do?  Identify what you have and what you need.  Decide how you plan to get to the answer and make a few notes on the steps you will take.  This will provide you and the person marking the exam with an idea of how you attempted the question.  This will also assist you with finding and correcting mistakes.

              

Exam Writing Tip 4

Write Something Down for Every Question

If all you can do is provide a definition, then do so.  If you run out of time, answer in point form instead of complete sentences.  Write down anything you know that is related to the question.  Guess if there are no penalties for guessing.

 

Exam Writing Tip 5

If You “Draw a Blank”

First, don’t panic and allow anxiety to take control of how you are going to do on the exam.  Ask yourself, “What do I need to know to answer this question?” and start writing down your thoughts.  Avoid negative self-talk – focus on the task instead of yourself.

 

Exam Writing Tip 6

Review & Make Corrections

Take the time to go over the exam and check your answers.  Do not change anything unless you are 100% sure it is wrong.  Check mathematical answers by performing reverse calculations.  Look at the processes you used.  Make sure you’ve answered everything that was asked for.

 

Exam Writing Tip 7

Stay Until the End

Don’t leave until the exam proctors throw you out!  Sometimes, it takes a little more time for information in your memory to “surface” so use all the time you are given.



Good luck and wish me luck.....
Thank you

We need to practice. If we want to follow it, we need to practice. We are not habituated with rules or system. Often we feel puzzle & blank in the exam hall.

This information would be a good practice during the exam time.

Good post, Bidita, hope you and other students will apply the techniques to be successful in the exam........
Those who worship the natural elements enter darkness (Air, Water, Fire, etc.). Those who worship sambhuti sink deeper in darkness. [Yajurveda 40:9]; Sambhuti means created things, for example table, chair, idol, etc.
