Here are some Tips and Hints on how to prepare for your exams-
Hint 1: Start Early As Possible
1. Get started preparation as soon as possible.
2. Preparation for exams should begin earlier than the day before the Exam.
3. You can’t cram an entire unit of information into an all-nighte.
4. Get started at least a week before the exam.
Hint 2: Highlight the Important Things
1. One of the best ways is to make succinct outlines.
2. Once you have decided what you need to study and how much time you need to spend studying, it is time to actually study.
3. When you have finished with all the material, you will have an outline you can review.
4. As you read over your textbook and class notes, write a brief summary for each topic. Highlight the areas in your outline that were most troublesome.
Hint 3: Read Carefully
1. Work through the exam slowly and read all the questions before answering them.
2. You have spent at least two weeks studying, so what’s another couple of minutes?
3. If you are done before the time is up, look over your answers.
Hint 4: Make Schedule for Review
1. Cover a small amount of material for each class each day.
2. Begin by making yourself a calendar outlining a daily schedule of topics for review.
3. Every time you complete a topic, give yourself a mini review.
Hint 5: Use Flashcards
1. By writing down the information from your outline, you are already doing half the studying.
2. Similar to outlining, making flashcards is a really helpful technique for studying.
3. Once the flashcards are complete, you will have a portable study packet to look over.
Hint 6: Keep Calm at the Time of Study
1. If a question seems too hard, answer all the questions you know, then return to the ones you left blank.
2. Remind yourself that you are prepared.
3. Do not panic at the exam! Even if at first glance the test is overwhelming, remember to breathe.
Hint 7: Ask From Your Teacher/Elder
1. Ask your teacher to go over a glitch you might be having.
2. If you are having trouble memorizing something or a particular concept is just not sinking in, get help before it’s too late.
3. If memorizing 200 vocabulary words seems like too much to do, recruit your family members to quiz you with index cards.
Hint 8: Sleep Well at least 7 Hours
1. Exams are designed to make you think.
2. You need at least seven hours of sleep a night to function.
3. If you are sleep-deprived, you won’t be able to remember any of the information you worked so hard to cram into your brain.
4. Even if you think you bombed the exam, worrying will not change your score.
5. It may, however, affect your mindset for your next final.
6. Zone out the last test and stay focused on the next one.
