What happens when the exam near your home? Panic, disaster, sudden forgetfulness, blocked minds, and similar problems often haunt our days in front of blank sheets. Therefore, here are the 5 essential tips so that you can get a few materials from above.
1. Don’t Panic
One of the worst things you can do on an exam. Panicking many times makes you forget what you have studied for days and let yourself be carried away by negativism in a spiral of total suggestion. To avoid this, try to relax. Look at the questions calmly. Do not panic if the first questions you read in the proposal do not have to do with the topics you studied the most or if you do not know how to answer them directly. Take your time and try to remember.
Often the panic comes exactly from this side: to remain in target, to forget everything. One way to avoid this situation is to review the topics at home while you eat breakfast or in college before entering the exam. Having fresh knowledge of memory helps a lot at times like this. I followed this tip to get a better SSC Result in the last year.
To avoid panic before an exam, it helps a lot to sleep a decent amount of hours the night before. An exam is like war, it has its own codes and its own morals, so you have to be well prepared. Sleep hours are not negotiable.
2. Take time to think before answering each question
It is best if you order everything in your head before you start writing. It will take a few minutes and is usually quite productive. As your classmates pounce on the sheets, calmly examine the questions and think about how you are going to elaborate on each answer. Some college students achieve amazing performance using the cognitive association technique, that is, writing something they remember from the text and remembering the rest along the way, as they finish working out the answer.
This method can be useful for some people and is very effective in fact, however, you can also forget essential details and regret once you have taken the exam.
On a separate sheet, write a diagram of the topics to be developed in the answer. Don’t be too specific. The idea is that you do it as a draft to guide you later.
3. Use your capacity for synthesis
There always comes a time in the life of every university student when, either due to the short length of time allowed for the answer or because they have little time left, they have to solve an exam question in 5 minutes. This is when one has to put your neurons to work to the fullest and use their synthesis capacity to identify what in the note 5 deadly sins when studying for an exam we call the core points of each subject or author and express them in a few characters.
The best thing in these cases is not to be distracted by biographical, contextual data that is irrelevant but to use typical simple sentence structures in which the information is forceful and clear.
I summarized the topics while you study. There is no better way to get to the exam with a good ability to answer the elementary. Practice makes a master.
4. Do not “pay” without a minimum prior knowledge
Knowing how to talk about a topic without having much knowledge about it is an art that only some people master, much more when faced with an exam question. First of all, it is not recommended. Teachers are not stupid and they realize when you don’t know about a subject and you’re going through the bush, avoiding answering what they asked you. The only thing that can save you in such a situation are two variables:
A) Having a waist, a field or talent (call it what you want) when improvising a mix of references and relating them in a manner consistent with the subject or author in question.
B) Having read related authors or having thematic knowledge vast enough to address a question about a text that you never read or read very little.
If you read something as minimal as it might be about the topic, try to remember that and explain what to remember rather than ramble on. It will be better for you and for those who correct your exam too.
5. Read Before delivering
By writing in a hurry one makes many mistakes. And not just from spelling and syntax errors, but from silly distractions that can cost you a point. Check the names of the authors and concepts you mentioned. They are a lot and there is always confusion.
It is also good to especially check the definitions and if the answers correspond to the questions of the exam proposal according to the number or letter that identifies each one.
