Exams are one of the most important hurdle for every person. Whether it be a school or college semester exam or any competitive one, exams will decide your future path. So you can be free of your act, but actually not, as your upcoming act will be influenced by the result of your latest exam you had attempted. So for every exam, you should pay more care and put more effort on it.
This post is only dedicated for solving your all possible problems faced during exams. So that you can give your excellent result. Hence read it till end!
1. How to Read the Questions?
Read the questions very carefully. Most of the students do not understand what is demanded by examiner. It is very important not to miss words, or part of words, by reading too quickly. Read the comma, colon and semi-colon carefully. Some of the questions can be twisted by putting comma between the words or lines, so as to make it bit conflicting. So pay attention to it most.
2. How to Write the answer of questions?
For long questions, dissect the bits of information that are provided. What information is relevant? What is most specifically related to the question? After you read the question, determine what you think the question is asking? Most of students fail to understand what is requirement and demand of question.
Write your answers with help of bullet points and short paragraphs.
Write your answer to the point. No need to write history or background unless it is demanded specifically. You will not get enough time for it. Also don’t make mistake by summing up in single paragraph. Divide it in number of bullets or points. Leave suitable space between two points. Make appropriate headings and sub headings.
You can write any number of question first. Commence your each question and sub-question from new page.
3. How to write practical questions?
In numerical or solving based subjects like Maths, accounts, etc., always check the given requirements of questions. Then start the solution with proper headings. Then solve the question along with describing every possible step in right hand side in brackets. In the end, when your have solved the question, then write one or two lines about your reasoning for solving it in the particular way(if required).
You can solve the question in chart or table if required in question. For subjects like accounts, making proper accounts is necessary. Use scale for straight linings. Start the new question in fresh page for avoiding confusion for examiner.
4. How to write questions asking difference or distinguish?
Do not write the difference in paragraph form. As far as possible, write it by dividing the answer sheet in two columns like balance sheet. It gives professional look and provide ease for paper checker. Give proper heading or title.
Example of distinguish based questions.
5. How to attempt the questions of subjects like law?
When you are attempting the law exam, specially when attempting case based questions. Then never start your answer with Yes or No unless you are 100% sure. First mention the relevant provision of Act in brief. Then relate question with provision. In the end conclude your answer.
Now the difficulty arises when we have to write the sections. Well it is not compulsory to write sections, but you should try to remember all the important sections and try to mention it. Make it a habit from the day one to remember it. You can prepare the list or chart of important sections. In exam, quote section only when you are sure. Also if you are not sure about sub-sections, then write only section number.
6. How to manage time in exams?
Do not let poor time management determine your exam results. Take atleast two-three practical exams after completing course. I remember when i used to prepare for my exams. I used to fix my last two weeks for solving all the past year questions. This had made me aware of my performance and had improved my speed. However do not let your results of practice exam lull your confidence. The stress of exam day, plus possible distractions like noise or cold exam room(in winters) can make a difference in how fast you work.
Monitor your progress. Keep an eye on the time as you work through exam. For example, if your have 3 hours exam and have total 7 questions, in which six is to attempted, then one complete question should be completed in 30 minutes.
One way to reduce time pressure is to bank a few minutes by doing an easy part first. Even if you fall behind, then don’t panic. It can make things worse only. If you need a short break, put your pen down and take a few deep breaths. This 30 seconds of deep rest can make you think clearly enough to answer several additional questions correctly.
So these were few simple yet important tips for your best preparation of exams. So for all the students whose exams are near, my best wishes are with you! Go and get great success.
