The Exams Are Starting - How to Pass, Part II
May 23, 2018
4) Tailor your revision
As you practise completing the exam and how to pass it, note the gaps in your skills and knowledge. Target these with extra practice and study so that you can maximise your marks in your weaker questions/sections come exam day.
5) During the exam, stick to your plan
It’s exam day, you’re ready, you’ve done the work, and you open the paper. But it’s not what you’re expecting.
Don’t panic. Remember your preparation, planning, and practise, and stick to these as best you can.
Returning to our example, even if you don’t like ‘A’ and ‘C’, and ‘B’ seems like an easier section, still answer either ‘A’ or ‘C’ first, then the other.
6) Watch the clock
Remember your timing. Even if your first section isn’t going that well and you feel like you need to do more to achieve the marks you want, move on once its time is up.
Complete the other section worth equal marks as best you can, then give the last section your best shot.
If you finish with time left over, you can return to your first section to go after extra marks
