We have to face exams, as humans it is our duty. There is no academic growth without facing exams. So if you need academic growth you should face them with all the weapons in your armor. Here are few tips for exam preparation to hit exams.
Preparation and study atmosphere:
The atmosphere you are in, determines the way you grasp the things. The atmosphere here does not only imply external surroundings but also implies internal mental peace. Keep off all the external disturbances such as TV and music players away from you room. The walls of your study room should have inspirational quotes. You should also not be under constant disturbance from your family members and friends. Keep off the communications till your exams are completed. Never open up the communications unless needed.
You should have a clear idea and action plan on how to prepare. How many subjects you can cover? How many topics can you rewind? These and all should be back of your mind. Begin with difficult subjects first and switch over to easier subjects next. This is the way your brain will not face any extra burden as you have already done with the toughest subject. Soon after completing both tough and easy ones, switch over to your interesting subjects. This strategy will give you the pleasure of learning.
Many are confused on which is the best time to study. Actually there is no any stipulated rule for this. In general reading early in the day is good for all. But before blindly following this thumb rule you need to know your body cycle. Usually, we can divide people into three categories based on the activeness of the body:
Night timers: these people are active at nights.
Day makers: these people are active during days.
Any time makers: these people can make it at any time.
Now based on the above three, know your body type and carry on with your studies. Spend more time to study when your body is active.
Practice previous year’s papers:
This strategy is the best way to read more in less time. Keep reading repeatedly the past years’ papers. Generally many of the exam papers will have the same questions from previous years.
Postpone your emotions:
This is the important exam tips for studying. The more peaceful you keep your brain the more it will grasp the subject. Keep this in mind. While you study you should only study and not daydream about other things. Keep off all your worries and problems away from the mind at least until the point you are done with you studies.
Every now and then soon after you prepare each topic evaluate yourself. Do some mock tests and reread accordingly.
Follow all these and you can easily do well in your exams.
