Do you want to score well in your upcoming exams?
Want to improve your grades?
Then instead of hitting the panic button, you can simply follow effective tips which may help you to score well in your all forthcoming examinations.
Here is the list of tips that may help you to score highest:
- Do not rote learn your answers, instead understand them.
One should pay attention in the class and understand the theories or topics taught in the class. Rote learning is not helpful. One can forget answers easily and during such situations whatever you had grasped in class will eventually help you in the exam as well as in future. One can write answers in their own way instead of vomiting out the same thing what one has by-hearted.
- Use mnemonics.
Mnemonics are sentences which can help students to remember the order of certain things. For example, “Katy Perry Came Over For Great Songs” is the best way to remember the biological classifications (Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, and Species). This is a very important memory trick which students can follow to remember long answers.
- Start learning way before your exam and not a day before.
Just learning won’t be sufficient as one has to revise all answers till the exam. So start learning before exams and revise till the exam.
- Presentation and handwriting are also important factors.
Students often fail to keep up with the presentation in a haste to finish a paper on time. One should keep their answer sheets presentable as it creates good impression plus it is easier for the teachers to check.
- Practice makes man perfect.
Every student must make a point to learn and write the answers. Practicing answers in writing is very important. This will help you to understand how to complete paper on time and also it will also boost your confidence level. By giving timely tests in tuitions or school will help to evaluate where you are right and wrong. Writing and rewriting will make exams a cakewalk.
- Do not panic during exams.
Be calm and believe in yourself. Constantly tell yourself that you know everything. Being positive during exam sessions helps you to retain matter. Many students go blank as they over think about it. Do not cram the answer last minute instead close your book 2 hours before the exam and feel relaxed.
- Read the question paper first and time yourself.
After reading the question paper, allot time for each question and keep a track of time. Keep a buffer of 10 minutes by the end of the paper. In this buffer time, you can review your paper and check whether you have attempted all the answers or not.
- Avoid cancellations on the very first page.
Students should avoid doing mistakes on the very first page as this gives a bad impression.
- Never leave any questions.
One should attempt all the compulsory answers (or problems in Mathematics)even if you do not know the answer correctly. There are chances where checker could give you some marks for writing the answer or a problem partly right.
- Build up the proper structure of answer.
It is best if you start your answer with a proper introduction, following a body and a conclusion. One can follow small paragraphs or pointers in the body section. But do not forget to keep it eye friendly. To make it reader friendly one can leave a line after each paragraph or point.
- Never overwrite or underwrite.
One should write according to the marks or amount of words mentioned in the question paper. Many students fail to understand how much to write which leads to less or no marks for particular answers.
We hope that these tips help you to score well in your exams!
All the best!
