The exams seasons will soon be kicking off in the country, therefore, students need to follow certain strategies in order to prepare themselves for the exams. The most critical part for marking the completion of exams is syllabus coverage. But at the same time, the utilization of time in an effective manner is also important. There are certain different myths that the scoring of good marks in the examination is based on a continuous study for a period of 12 to 14 hours per day. It can be true to the fact that some students need to study a specific topic thoroughly, whereas, it may not stand true in all the cases. Few of the students just plan the completion of topic regardless of any time duration.
While others are of the point that a 12-hour time with complete focus can be done in a space of 6 to 8 hours. The educationists and intellectuals are of the views that it is pivotal to know the level one has studied rather than measuring the productivity with hours of study. Some of the students become highly worried regarding their examination and this attitude is not only due to the exams but the lack of preparation. Even when these students start preparing for the exams, the lack of exposure and planning worries the students. There is no need to worry for the students as we advise them with certain handful tips that can ease the worries of students.
Firstly, the students need to start early as they can always have a window for revision. This is a two dimensional point as the study shall be started in the early part of the day. Secondly, the planning shall be made in accordance with having enough time for the revision of syllabus too. This time can not only help in revision but can be a possible solution for any emergency or uncertain situations. The revision gives a better idea of the current standing of an individual and is one of the best tools for self-evaluation.
Secondly, students shall organize themselves in order to get well prepared and ease on their worries. It means that the students shall plan an agenda of their preparation and this needs to be made in black and white. This can either be an electronic documented or hand written but important is that it shall be in writing. The agenda shall include day wise plan of topics to be covered, how much days one requires to cover the topic, and then an appropriate window of revision.
Once the students have organized themselves, there is now time for some actual study to be done. The concept of outline suggests that any specific topic or a concept can be briefed in point form. This practice shall be used by the students rather than developing long notes as this will help them in finishing the topic in time along with developing an in-depth understanding of the topic too. However, an outline is the last achieved step after thoroughly reading one’s rough notes taken during class and then reading them from the book. Once all the reading is completed and the topic is fully understood, an outline shall be drafted.
We are living in a global community space, therefore, there is no way that one can move forward on his own, hence, we encourage the students to take help from others. If there is a difficulty in understanding or completing any topic, one of the friends, class fellows or tutors shall be reached out. The students make a big mistake of memorizing and then often tend to forget it during the examination. Once the topic is completed, one can take the help from family members too by requesting them to ask questions related to the same topic. Only a sound mind and healthy body can perform well as it has the ability of absorbing pressure too. This points out the importance of taking a decent sleep. It is important for the students to at least take a sleep of seven to eight hours. The failure of good sleep will make one restless and as a result, the performance not only in preparations but exams will be hampered.
In addition to that, students need not to panic and worry. The preparation of exams is a tough procedure itself and then writing long exams is equally demanding too. The students need to practice patience and calamity as it is the only way forward. Once the paper has started, try to attempt those questions that are well-known and then spend time on the ones, where thinking is required rather than wasting time on thinking first and then making it tough for oneself. Lastly, the students need not to panic even after the examination. Students usually try to evaluate themselves after the exams are being conducted. Students need to realize that nothing can change their scores once the process is completed, therefore, realize your mistake, stay focus and perform well for the next time.
The current situation of the country is not much different than what is narrated above as students are looking to either revise or start their exams preparation. The overall scenario isn’t very welcoming but the exams are just around the corner. All the governing bodies have shown an initial direction of conducting the exams right after the holy month of Ramadan. Thus, we advise the students to follow exam preparation tips as discussed above. This can facilitate the students not only in their preparation but will also ensure the securing of good marks in their respective exams.
