5 Easy Ways to Improve Your Exam Performance

Summary of Read the Article and Learn How to Ace Your Next Exam

ini untuk diri akak sendiri dan kawan2 lain ye

1. Develop a plan.

Here are some questions to consider as you devise your plan:

  • When will you start studying?
  • How many hours each week will you block out to study?
  • Which topics do you need further clarification on?
  • Which homework assignments will you review?
  • How many practice exams will you do?
  • How many times will you review your notes and your textbook readings?
  • What distractions are you likely to face, and how will you overcome them?

2. Get on a sleep schedule at least one week before the exam.

Tido awal uols, kata nya at least one week before so that your body will have time to adjust. If not, your mind won’t be in an optimal state to take the exam.

3. Don’t do any last-minute studying right before the exam.

Jangan study last menet, akak pun kalau bukak buku last menet tu, sure gabra nanti nak masuk dewan peksa nya.

Make use of the time before the start of the exam to relax. Visualize yourself answering the questions correctly, and imagine yourself in a state of peace and confidence.

Take a deep breath. Inhale for four seconds, then exhale for four seconds. Repeat this as many times as necessary to calm down.

4. Turn your focus toward the process and away from the outcome.

This means that if you focus primarily on the outcome (for instance, repeatedly thinking to yourself: “I must ace this exam. I must ace this exam. I must ace this exam.”), you’re probably not going to ace the exam.

If you want to ace the exam, you should, instead, concentrate on staying calm, on thinking through each question carefully, and on analyzing what each question is really asking.

5. Make use of exam-taking techniques.

Here are some basic exam-taking principles and techniques:

Be familiar with the structure of the exam.
It’s important to know the answers to these questions:

  • How many sections will the exam have?
  • What are the differences between the sections?
  • Will there be multiple-choice questions, open-ended questions, or both?
  • How many points will there be in total?

Use a stopwatch.
During an exam, every second counts. Using a stopwatch will help you to keep track of the time more accurately.

Look through the entire exam at the beginning.

When the exam starts, don’t jump straight in and start answering the questions. Instead, take a minute or two to skim all of the questions.

Get a feel for how challenging the exam is overall, and take note of which questions will be especially time-consuming. Set aside more time to tackle those questions.

Know how much time you should spend on each question.
Based on how long the exam is and how many points there are in total, you’ll know roughly how much time to spend on each question.

For example, if you have 50 minutes to complete a 50-point exam, you have one minute per point. So, for a 10-point question, you should spend approximately 10 minutes answering it.

If, after 10 minutes, you’re still not done with the question, it’s time to speed up.

If you get stuck, move on.
If you’re unable to solve a problem, maintain your composure and go on to the next one. Time is ticking. When you’ve completed the rest of the exam, come back to the unfinished problems.

Good luck untuk exam uols..
