One of the stages of life where most people go through a lot of stress is when they are facing an exam. Most of the times, this happens because of lack of preparation. People believe if they want to pass an exam they have to study hard all the time. That is not true. At the same time, not studying at all is also going to make you fail in your academic life unless you have a photogenic memory.
So, what do we normal people do? How can one pass exams without having to sacrifice all their time into studying all the time? If you cover all of the following steps you will be able to do just that.
Complete and Comprehensive Notes
One of the best ways to make sure you have captured all that is taught in class is to have a complete note. Sometimes the teachers or lecturers offer us a note. Sometimes they do not. It is up to you to decide what the important points are. If there is some referencing to do you have to get to them as soon as possible and gather all the necessary information. Once all of that is with you, create a complete note which is easy to understand.
Studying on a Daily Basis
To make sure you do not have to spend long hours studying when the exam comes you have to study on a daily basis. This does not mean you should cancel all other plans and study full time. Choose a time which is easier for you to study and go through the notes you create every day. This will help your brain to memorize what is necessary in the same way we remember what happens in a storybook once we have reread it.
Practice Writing Answers
One of the biggest mistakes most students do is not practicing writing answers. In an exam, you are given a limited time. If you do not know how to divide time among the questions in the right manner and use the time given to write down an answer you will spend writing more for the questions you are sure about and writing nothing for some questions as you run out of time. To make sure you write an answer for every question you need to practice writing answers.
Doing Past Papers
Once the exam gets near do past papers. This will help you revise and get you ready to face the exam.
This kind of an organized method will help you pass exams.
