Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
No one really enjoys taking exams but everyone likes passing exams. Getting great results requires both good revision techniques and a good exam technique.
Getting better revision techniques require a bit of commitment and discipline. Most of the work needs to be done before you sit the exam. The exam is for you to demonstrate what you have learned on the course, so you need to be prepared.
Put together a revision timetable. It is easy to make a revision timetable but once you have planned your revision timetable you need to stick with it. No cutting corners!
Revision techniques tips for passing exams...
·Revise for short periods of time
·Take lots of breaks
·Add variety to your revision
·Find a comfortable place to revise when you can concentrate
The second part of passing exams is having a good exam technique. You may have learned everything you need to in the course and understand it better than anyone else but you need to demonstrate that on paper. Don't worry... this is your time to shine!
Get a full night's sleep the night before the exam. If you have a choice of an extra hour's revision or sleep, go for sleep. Being refreshed the next day will help with passing exams.
Make sure that you arrive at the exam in plenty of time. You won't get any marks is you miss the exam! Also, make sure that you have all the necessary pens and materials you need. There is nothing worse than arriving at the exam and not having you calculator with you. Do a checklist the night before to put your mind at ease.
Once the exam has stated just take a second to compose yourself. Read all the instructions slowly. The easiest way to stop yourself passing exams is to not read the instructions properly a miss questions out.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
