Quick Tips for Exam Preparation

Exams are an essential yet stressful part of any examination. Since exams are so important, it becomes essential to prepare for them whole-heartedly to get the best outcome or the result. We give you some easy tips to ease your stress and improve your study skills.

 Early start will benefit a lot:  : It is a well-known fact that the earlier you start preparing for the exam, the more time you will get to complete the syllabus. 

Shemford Exam Tips

 Make a time table Before you start studying for the exam, it is advisable to make a time-table such that all the subjects topic-wise are covered. Divide your preparation time in such a manner that it includes breaks at regular intervals as well.
Time Table

Choose the right time to study: It is very important to select the correct time to study. Research shows that a usual human mind remains active from the time duration 5 am-8 am and 7pm-11 pm. So, according to the nature of the exam i.e. whether it is practical or theoretical, decide the apt time to study. However, it is advisable to allot morning slot for theoretical subjects and evening slot for practical subjects.

However, it is advisable to allot morning slot for theoretical subjects and evening slot for practical subjects.  
 Choose good surroundingsBesides other factors, make sure that the surrounding you choose for studying is perfect. Make sure that the area is clean and well-lit. 
 Avoid cramming   Strictly avoid cramming the content of any subject as it is not at all a good method of studying. Rather, make short notes simultaneously while studying. Cramming everything is likely to result in forgetting the information. So, read with focus and try to retain. 
 Rewrite the points to enhance memoryMemorising is an art. Some are good at it, while some have to make special efforts to improvise this skill. In case you are unable to recall the content of any topic, rewrite it at least 5 times to ensure that you do not miss out on any important information. 
Review your notes: Preserve the notes you prepared while studying. A day before the exam, review those notes. Before you move on to the next topic, ask yourself questions related to the topic studied on the previous page. This will also help you to speak aloud the answers, as if you were trying to explain it to someone else.

 Practicing under exam conditions:  Once you are through with the preparation and revision as well, it is time to take a mock test as if you were actually appearing for the exam. This is a proven exercise that will help you to assess how much you could retain and on which areas you need to work upon and improvise. 

 Be prepared on the exam day   On the exam day, just have a glance at the notes prepared, to ensure that the information is still fresh in your mind. Do not lose confidence on yourself. Trust God and appear for the exam on time.  


Good Luck
