Keys to Fearless Examination

Why is the Examination?

        The examination is also named as a test. It includes measuring a candidate’s knowledge, skill, ability, aptitude, memory power, and capabilities. Since ancient times the examination is practised, and it changes and evolves. The mode of examinations takes place in written tests, practical tests, or through a computer screen test. The examiner is the one who examines and decides the candidate’s performance. The candidate who passes the examination gets the certificate, job, etc.

Keys before Preparation:

Preparation before the Examination is essential instead of leaving it until the last minute. Some candidate does seem to thrive on last-minute stuffing; it is acceptable that this is not the best way to approach an exam. Sort out your time management, make a timetable for your study. Pen down how many examinations you have and the days on which you have to prepare for them. After that, organize your study accordingly. Decide which exam to spend many days on it, and balance those days and balance that you feel comfortable with it.

Pen and Paper a must-have:

During the time of the revision, the visuals aids help a lot. While starting a topic, challenge and make sure you write down everything you know about the topic and highlight wherever the important points lie. The one-page diagram makes your revision brief, easy, and memorable. Briefing your ideas in this format helps to recall the portions very easily quickly.

Space Matters:

Organizing your study space is essential. Make enough space to spread your textbooks and notes out. Check out whether there is enough light? Comfortable chair? Make sure phone calls and games not ruling your study time.

Try your best to get rid of all distractions and make sure you feel pleased and capable of paying full attention as possible. Some people prefer mild background music while studying. Some people prefer complete silence, neat & tidy, and everything wholly organized during studying. Think about your comfort zone and take the time to get it right

Practice old question papers:

Practising past version papers is an effective way to prepare for exams. Such practices help to spend the right amount on each section, knowledge on the format and types of questions.

Form a study group:

Study difficult subjects with a group of friends, and it makes the portion easy to understand. Fix a timing and stay focused on that particular topic for an agreed amount of time; this method is one of the best practical ways to study quickly and to challenge yourself.

Regular Break:

Thinking to study as many hours as potential can be counterproductive. Research shows that taking frequent breaks helps than studying continuously for long hours. Develop a study routine that works for you. If you are better at studying in the early morning, do start early, and that maybe the time for you to grasp things faster. If you are a person better studying in the night times, relax and take enough break earlier so that you feel fresh and energetic to settle down come evening.

Explain your answers:

Make it fun to explain your answers to friends, siblings, etc. This kind of activity helps to store it clear in your head, and also to highpoint any areas where you need more work.

Food choices

You may feel like treating yourself with different snacks or order something junk online to feed yourself, but what you eat has a significant impact on energy levels and focus, so keep away from junk food. Instead of intake, natural, fresh, and vitamins rich foods. These varieties of foods are right for you and will keep you active, enhances your concentration and memory.

Water:

It is advisable to drink plenty of water while studying and even during the time of the exam. It agitates your positive spirit and keeps you hydrated all day long.

Study Preparation:

You are the judge for your study time. If the subject is challenging for you, then start studying early. Spend enough time to grasp the material, practice it, and then review it. It is expedient to take a sound sleep before the exam so that your brain will be able to recollect everything you’ve put into it.

Things to avoid during exam preparation:

Here are some fundamental conceptions which everyone needs to prevent before preparing for an exam.

  • Do not be nervous
  • Be positive and confident about your preparation. Keep aside a particular time ‘to worry.’ In the meanwhile, stay focus on your preparation and your successful result.
  • Last-minute heavy preparation
  • Last-minute preparations lead to nervousness and too mugging up the topics. Be confident and believe in yourself and your preparation. It is advisable to spend 10-15 minutes before going to sleep in revising the portions you studied throughout the day.  
  • Don’t be pressurized
  • Don’t overthink and burden yourself with the course pressure. Be self-assured about whatever you prepared.
  • Avoid confusion
  • Confusion sometimes makes you answer the question wrongly and later leads to sincere repentance. Avoid such situations by taking deep breaths, centre yourself, and concentrate on what you know.

How to improve memory before the exam:

  • Research proves a 20-minute workout before an exam can boost your memory and brainpower. It is advisable to go for a walk before an exam.
  • Teaching what you have learned is the best way to test what you have understood. Instead of finding people to teach them, you can explain what you have learned to siblings, dolls, or even pets at your home.
  • You will be amazed how much more you can remember when you speak out loud instead of merely reading
  • Self-motivation is imperative during the time of exam preparation. You can reward yourself by giving marks, stars for each unit/module/questions, etc.
  • Create a mind map using your creative visual overview of different connections. Sketching diagrams is the best way, which will help you to visualize data’s which would be hard to describe.
  • Avoid distractions by blocking websites using a specific app for a certain amount of time.
  • Ceaseless study pauses you from focus. Instead, take regular study breaks to help your brain absorb much information and keep you motivated and focused.
  • Practice makes a man perfect. Practice previous year exam questions to sample answers, and it can help train your brain to retrieve information.
  • Do not plan to stay up all night before an exam. When you sleep, your brain integrates the statistics you have learned when studying.

Above all, staying positive is a must. A positive attitude constitutes a significant impact on your exam results. Only a positive attitude motivates you to complete all the assignments and to cover the portions when all you want to do is go to bed. Affirmations, concentration, and learning to stay calm are imperative too, but unless if you have not read, studied, prepare, and practised all the stuff you need, they will not help much. All the best, folks!

 

10 Things to do when you have an exam and you haven’t prepared yet..

Things to do when you have an exam, and you have not prepared until the last moment

  1. The first and the most important thing to do is to give up on your pleasures and enjoyment.now that we have less time for preparation we need to eliminate the free time. Last-minute preparation is not a good thing to practice, anyhow when we have no other choice we need to give all our 100 % effort into the preparation.

  2. You should have a proper timetable and set your schedule.  Upon planning, a student must be ready to sacrifice all the other pleasures. Plan your timetable in such a way that you divide the time left most effectively. Analyse the subjects you need more time in, give priorities to those subjects. Distribute the whole day into parts and study the subjects in the stipulated time.

  3. Do not procrastinate, keep pushing yourself and don’t skip the timetable you have made and abide by it. As we are preparing at the last moment there isn’t even thought of procrastination as the time in our hand is already less. While preparing, make sure that when you finish a topic, you are already thorough with it. Because we won’t have enough time to come back and finish the same portions.

  4. Set clear goals and deadlines and follow them with utmost faith. Push yourself to the highest limit you can. Divide the time left into two parts one for the thorough preparations and the other for revision. Revision is very important as a student gets to know which area he needs to be more careful about in revisions. As we won’t, have much time for mock tests and self-assessment make sure you keep testing yourself as you finish the portions..
  5. Stop postponing things and follow the timetable.
  1. Get yourself materials that’ll help you understand the concept easily in a shorter span of time. Keeping in mind the very less time available with us, we need to find the materials that will make it easier for us to study. Studying complex materials would take more time to understand and analyse. Find the book that would help your level of understanding and stick to them.

  2. Do not get yourself any distraction, whenever you feel like being pulled towards something, remind yourself about your dream. All your distraction would cost you your goal. If you feel like something would distract you or won’t let you concentrate on your last-minute preparation, stay away from it. Put all your mind and time into the preparation you won’t have the space for distractions.

  3. avoid peer pressure. Stop comparing yourself with your friends. Do not ask your friends how much of the portions they have completed and put yourself down. Every student has his own pace. Don’t doubt yourself by seeing your friends.this is the time to concentrate on yourself and not others. Cut unnecessary communication with others. Approach either your staff or online classes to clear your doubt.

  4. prepare from last year question papers. Most of the times, preparing from previous year question papers would give you an idea of the pattern of questions. Hence you can be able to figure which portion to provide more priority. The chances of the same questions repeating are higher too. Thus It may be helpful. Study the question papers and learn the methods in which the question has been solved, even if the same question isn’t asked, the technique to solve maybe same, which may help you in solving the problem. Don’t underestimate any topic.cover all the topics even if it doesn’t have high weightage in the question paper.

  5. Revision is the essential thing in last-minute preparation. Last-minute preparation is squeezing the whole syllabus is a short span of time. Hence refreshing what he has studied is very important. Revision is the place to test your memory and find out the places you still need to refresh. Revision is not studying, so do not keep any portion for studying in the last moment. Revision is for building confidence in yourself. Make at least 3 revisions and test yourself in all the parts of the portions. If you feel like you like in any topic, make yourself thorough in the topic immediately. Make sure when you complete your last revision you are confident enough to be able to solve any question that is given to you.

Most importantly, do not stress yourself. Because if you lose your calm, all the 10 points listed above will go waste. Keep your mind at peace to concentrate more.
