Exam Skills

Before the exam: The day before check the time and venue of the exam and work out how to get there in plenty of time. Review your summaries and cue cards systematically. Make sure you have an adequate night's sleep. Arrive at the exam in plenty of time, to calm your inevitable nerves, but avoid conversations which you know will wind you up.


During the exam: Read the question paper through once, underlining key words and instructions. Do not panic if your initial feeling is that you cannot answer any of the questions adequately. That is a common first reaction. Then go back and read it more thoroughly marking those questions which you feel you could answer. Read those questions which you have marked very carefully and decide exactly which you are going to answer.

Do not be put off by glancing around and seeing other students scribbling away at top speed straight away. These people should not be emulated. They have not taken the time to organise their ideas. You may write a bit less, but your essay will be much better than the one you would have produced if you had written "from the top of your head". What matters is not how many pages you write but what you write. Read through your planned answer. Is it logically argued? Are the main issues covered? Does it really answer the question? How will the marker view your approach?



This thing matters a lot when you are in the competitive world. According to planning is the thing you have to do according to the type of exam you are going to write. Instead of searching here and there, refer to your topper friend, he is the best resource for you, he suggests you the way to study, that gives you a lot of boosts and make you the successful person.

Plan according to your caliber and follow the path, don't leave any plan unturned. I don't want to tell you to prepare a timetable and follow, just take into consideration of units and plan to finish all units effectively within available days.


While reading, you should question yourself "is that sentence important? can questions be asked in that sentence? If asked in what manner it can be asked?" These are the questions you should come up while reading. There is a statement "student talent doesn't lie in answering questions, but in expecting the questions before examinations" yes that really works. While reading you will come to know which is an important sentence, a topic in that chapter, from that topic you should frame your own questions. So that you can answer effectively in examinations.
