Tips to Prepare for an Exam

Whether students like to sit exams or not, the reality of school is that exams are not only necessary, but their results can often determine future academic and career opportunities. If your student struggles with exams, below is a post from The Tutoring Center, Bloomfield MI with tips which can help.

It All Starts with a Plan

The best way to achieve any goal is with a plan. The first action every student should take when they are advised of an upcoming exam is to note the details in a calendar or an organizer. Once this is completed, students should think about how much and what type of study will be required in order to prepare for the exam. Using this information, work backward from the exam date and plan study sessions before the calendar has had a chance to fill up. This is not only a great technique to prevent students from forgetting about exams, but the pre-planned study sessions also act as ongoing reminders.

Everything Needed

It’s rare for students to attend an exam and only require a pencil or a pen. Nowadays, modern lessons are so complex that their accompanying exams often require a range of learning tools to complete, such as protractors and scientific calculators. A week before the exam, look through the information packet or speak with a teacher about any learning tools needed for the exam. Once you have everything, make sure that it works, such as putting fresh batteries into a calculator. Not only will this ensure that you have everything needed when it is time for the exam, but many exams allow you to take a small page of notes in with you, which is something you may not have known without this step.

Points

The majority of exams are points based, meaning that each question or section is attributed a set number of points, with the goal being to achieve as many points as possible. While there is nothing wrong with this exam type, students who are not able to complete the exam in its entirety can often miss out on earning points for questions they studied for, but don’t appear until the end of the exam. Instead of working through the exam from start to finish, look through the exam and identify any questions or sections which can not only be completed correctly but also quickly. Once these have been completed, move to the more difficult questions. This can help students achieve points and earn a grade for their hard work and study, even if they weren’t able to complete the exam.

Review

The final step before submitting any exam is to review the answers provided, even if doing this means that a student won’t have enough time to answer all of the questions. The reason why this step is so important is that a tired write or a mind which has moved onto the next question before the hand has finished writing an answer can result in small mistakes like an incorrect number or letter bring writer. While small, these can often be the difference between an A and an A+ or a pass and a fail.
