10 Realistic Examination Tips

Exams are ALWAYS around the corner for any student. Here's how to treat exam-time as a friend and not as a foe.

1

Make short notes

Make short notes

Little jottings here and there of the concept, making up mnemonics for easy remembrance is all part of making notes. Its truly a great way to prep for the exams than just poring over that thick textbook all the time.

2

Sleep well

Sleep well

Studying too much into the night is bad. Worrying about your exams and thus staying up without sleep is bad. So basically, sleep is good. Sleep well while studying, and also before the day of the exam. You'll do great.

3

Take breaks in between

Take breaks in between

Set a goal to study five lessons, then take a break for thirty minutes. Repeat this pattern and your exam will be smiling down on you. But just take care not to overdo the breaks.

4

Start with the toughest subject

Start with the toughest subject

I always say, the medicine is bitter but it is for the better. Start with the subject that's most difficult for you. Conquer that huge hill, and the rest of the road will be smooth for you.

5

Relax

Relax

Don't ever stress yourself about the exam or the scores. When in doubt or frustration, relax and meditate. Breathe.

6

Keep it varied

Keep it varied

Instead of studying one subject the whole day, study portions of three subjects with breaks in between. This will keep your brain active and wanting to keep learning more. You won't get bored.

7

Color-code the doubts

Color-code the doubts

Color-coding is a great way to jot dot down doubts of different subjects, and it'll also keep you fresh. Its also easy to remember things even while you forget them during your exam!

8

Research aplenty

Research aplenty

If you don't get anything out of what you've just read from the text book, spend some time on researching it online. Read up lots about the concept and once you get the hang of it, come back to actually studying it.

9

Maintain a schedule

Maintain a schedule

Maintain a strict time table and make sure you thoroughly follow it. Helps in more ways than one.

Take even a day or two off of your study schedule to let yourself loose and have fun! Indulge in your favorite hobby and see how much good that will do for you.
