Exams are near, and you have not studied a single word?
And the panic monster inside your brain woke up?
Are you also one of a procrastinator?
That delays and postpone important things on purpose?
If yes, then you came to the right place.
This article will show you how to use the panic monster that haunts you when your exams are near and how to use it to your advantage.
Here are 7 tips to prepare exams in a fun and easy way.
#1 Time Management:
Time management is one of the basic things we do in all our planning, and it matters the most.
In exams, we need to manage our time by dividing our time in the most useful ways.
For example, we make a schedule and assign time to subject according to how difficult it is.
For example, maths need more time than others, that’s what people think, but once you understand the concept, it’s all done.
Science and other subjects like history need learning, so give more time to it.
some people are good at learning instead of conceptual learning so that it might depend on themselves.
Please keep track of every subject and plan accordingly to it.
#2 Prepare your notes:
we all understand the simple language more quickly than the complicated textbook language.
For all subjects, make your note in which you write in bullet points of what you have understood.
Or you can attach sticky notes to the note book’s side where you hint to yourself what the paragraph is all about.
Usually, that makes it messy, so do both things.
Use the highlighter to mark important things in a book and also in your notes.
By the end of the month, you don’t have to look through all of the books again.
Just go through the notes you made yourself in which you have all the main points.
Solve PastPapers :
One of the most effective ways to prepare for examinations when you don’t have a lot of time is to solved past examination papers.
This helps you to know the examination paper format and get you to hang up on the exam time limit.
In the process of studying for exams, Practice old question paper sets because it gives us an idea of what sort of questions presented in the exams.
Go for the important topics:
Mostly, students go for the topics that seem easy for them and later don’t have time for difficult topics that are important for the coming year exam.
This is wrong! they should make a list of 3 things which include most important than, least important and not very important.
By doing this, you will prioritize the most important things that should be done first.
4# Don’t let the panic monster engulf you:
From time to time, panic monsters appear and be like ” arrhhhhh exams are near” ” ahhhhhh, you have not studied yet.
