Study Advice - The February Mid-Term Break Part I
February 5, 2018
The February mid-term break is a good time for you to ready yourself for your upcoming mock exams. Although the mocks aren’t the be all and end all of your exam year, it’s important you prepare for them as if they were the real thing, and that you use them as a learning experience in themselves.
On average, students tend to improve their mock exam result in each subject by almost a full grade. As part of the mocks, marking can be stringent, students haven’t completed their study in most if not all subjects (thus they cannot revise as well as they might for the real thing), this might well be the first time students will have completed a full mock exam in each subject, etc.
Accordingly, it’s best you accept that you’re unlikely to achieve the final points total you’re aspiring to in June, but you should strive to do the best you can right now and take the following steps over the February mid-term to ensure you perform well in each exam.
