Tips before taking your exam :)
HERE SOME TIPS BEFORE TAKING YOUR EXAM:
Dump Your Brain - When you first get your exam, write down any
information that is difficult to remember such as formulas, dates,
keywords, etc. on the back of the exam. Then, you can reference
it while you’re taking the exam without worrying if you’ll remember
Skim Through the Entire Exam - When you first get your exam,
skim through the entire exam and mark the questions you know
that you can answer or questions that you don’t know right off the
Skip the Questions You Don’t Know - Don’t waste time on questions you’re unsure of. Mark them with question marks and move
on; you can go back to them later.
Double Check Your Work – Use any extra time you have to double
check your answers, make sure you have followed all the directions,
and haven’t skipped any pages.
Look Elsewhere on the Exam for Answers - Sometimes the answer to one question may be found on another section of the exam worded differently.
Pace Yourself - Being able to take an exam quickly yet carefully is
essential. If necessary, wear a watch or periodically keep your
eye on the clock so you are aware of your time left. Also, don’t get
anxious if you hear other students finishing their exam early.
Ask Questions - If you’re confused about the wording or meaning of
a question, ask your professor. Don’t risk getting a question
wrong because you misunderstood it.
Carefully Read All of the Directions - Most students lose points on
exams because they were careless and didn't fully read all of the
directions; don’t be one of them!
Follow Your Gut Instinct - Most of the time when students second
guess themselves, they choose the wrong answer.
Relax – Exams are stressful; there can be a lot of pressure on you to
succeed, but remember that stressing out works against you. You
risk panicking and/or forgetting information you've studied.
