to survive exams!
Tick… Tick… The clock’s ticking. Exams are
almost here and usually this is the time when most of us start to panic. Well ,
the newsflash of the day is that exams can’t be avoided. So if you can’t avoid
it, you’re going to have to survive it..
are a few tips on how to do it..
It’s just another exam and
you are going to give your best. Have the confidence that you can do it. Trust
yourself and set the sail.
Make sure you have got
everything that you need right around your study space. Avoid getting up
frequently. Maintain the flow of your study.
3.Make a Time-Table.
When you know what to
study and when to study, its less trouble.
Have a time-table with you and studying becomes easier.
You must be a lot of
things but I am sure a robot isn’t one of them. It’s impossible to keep staring
at the books continuously. Take a break of 15 minutes every 2 hours or so. Eat
something light. Take a walk. Give your brain the time to refresh.
Sleeping is an amazing
exercise. You can concentrate better, you’ll remember things clearly and you’ll
be in a great mood. An added benefit to this is that if you sleep on a problem,
your brain still looks for an answer. Even if you don’t get an answer, you’ll
wake up afresh to look at the problem from a new angle.
Always create a study
plan. Choose the easy topics and finish them first so you can give proper time
to the difficult ones. Make daily agendas and complete them. This way, you can
be ready for the big day.
Stuffing your head with
things is useless. It confuses you and wastes your time. Try to understand
things. Try memorizing things by connecting them to other things.
Make notes for whatever
you study. They’ll help you in revising the next time you touch the topic. They
are also useful for last minute revisions.
Revision is crucial. You can’t waste time on the same
topic twice. Revision takes just a few minutes and with every revision, the
topic gets cemented in your brain.
10.Plan for the Big
Be ready for the exam day with
all of your stuff. Read all the rules of the exam. Make sure you know your exam
centre and reach there before time. Keep your entrance card with you. Wish
yourself good luck and do it.
