Exam revision is a difficult thing to master but the important thing to note is that it can be mastered. However, it requires a lot of application, dedication and time to ensure you cover all the areas that might appear on your exam. Below are just some tipsyou need to master to make sure you ace that exam.
This is a vital component of exam revision. You may have the best resources in the world; you have befriended the studious pupils to gain access to their notes, sequestered a study desk approved by world-leading chiropractors and have received industrially sized orders of energy drinks but none of this matters if you don’t have the time to actually sit down and study! Your brain needs time to process all the information it’s taking in. If you dream of an A, and all the lofty success that comes with it, make sure you PLAN!
Students have it tough; exam curriculums are vast in their scope and cover a lot of material. To combat this many students jump around from topic to topic, only really scratching the surface. You are better off taking one topic at a time and delving as deep into it as possible. Place each topic in context, gain a rich understanding of it before you move on to the next topic. Once you do the same with other topics you can then compare and contrast them and have truly unique insights that will garner you a higher grade. If you can do this, it doesn’t matter what question comes up in the exam as you will be able to deal with it. Not because you rattle off a list of dates, or recall a specific formula but because you understand what you are being asked… there’s a big difference!
It’s cliché. I know. But practice makes perfect. Before any exam you should familiarise yourself with the exam structure, the types of questions asked, the marking scheme and how you are going to manage your time. The best way to prepare for this is by completing practice papers. Practice individual questions or sections in your own time , make sure your answer is a good as possible. The more you familiarize yourself with the exam structure and style the better your answers will become. When you are comfortable, take a mock exam in a real exam scenario – turn off your phone, don’t talk, time yourself and be honest.
