The time of the exams is a daunting time, all my fellow exam-takers will be aware of this. But this doesn’t mean that you need to stress out. If you prepare well then you can take on all of your exams without any stress. So let me give you some tips on how to prepare for your exams.
Prepare yourself throughout the year
Learning for your exams doesn’t start a couple of weeks before the exams, this starts at the beginning of your final year. You’re going to have a major headstart when you always pay attention in class and do your homework. This way you’ve been practising for months before peers of you start to even think about the exams. Consistent work will deliver a lot more than a couple weeks of studying extremely hard without breaks.
If you’re anything like me then you make summaries from all of the schoolwork you need to know and then you store it away safely after the test. Doing this has caused me to have a collection of all the knowledge I need to have for my final exam. I can pull out all my old notes and summaries to study for the exam. You don’t need to buy summaries or search through piles and piles of old paperwork, you need to keep all of it organised.
Make a planning
If you’ve read my blogs then you know the drill, you need to make a planning for everything. If you make a planning then you will know what to do and when to do it, you won’t have to stress half as hard. As long as you stick to your planning, the rest will work out. Make your planning well ahead of time and include everything you need to know: Date, time, place, what to do etc.
Exams will probably cause you to stress out at some point, but stress won’t get you anywhere. You’ll need to take breaks, do fun things, sleep enough and eat healthy foods to keep yourself sane. You might have more time to study when you don’t do these things, but in the end, this won’t improve your result. You should always put your physical and your mental health before everything, that way you won’t succumb to all the stress.
These tips will make it a lot easier for you to prepare for your exams, but the work will have to be put in by you. I am sure of the fact that you will give everything to prepare well for your exams and score the best marks that you’ve ever scored.
