Top 10 exam techniques to use this year

girl gone crazy

Want to get through your exams more easily, then try a few of these tips that are aimed at students that are having written exams, listening exams, speaking exams, comprehension exams and multiple-choice exams. Here are ten techniques you can use right away.

1 - Don't go in there with a hangover

If you have a hangover, then you are going to struggle to do your work and you will lose concentration. You will also feel tired and your reaction times will be a little slower. If you try to drink lots of water to overcome your hangover quicker, then you will need to pee more often.

2 - Lie in your English test if it makes it easier

If you cannot spell a word, then try something else, even if it is not true. If you cannot spell "depressed", then say you had a "low mood." If you cannot spell Sagittarius, then write that you are a Virgo.

3 - Get a good night's sleep behind

If you are tired, then you will score poorly. Get plenty of sleep and get into a good sleeping routine around two weeks before your exams. Get too little sleep, and you will struggle with your exams.

4 - Picking the same letter in exams is okay

You are going to have multiple-choice questions where you may pick the same letter numerous times. If this is the case, then do not worry. It may look odd, but there are many times when picking the same answer is the right thing to do.

5 - Do not describe photographs in too much detail

If you are asked to given a photo to look at and write about, then do not go into too much detail. Think outwards rather than minutia. For example, do not write that there are 17 leaves on the plant: say that it may be windier up high than it is down below because the tops of the trees look stretched in one direction as if the wind is blowing.

6 - Don't try the be a smart-ass in your philosophy tests

A student tried to get a good grade for his paper in philosophy when it had "Is this a question?" as the title. His answer was, "Yes, if this is an answer." He expected a stellar grade, but he failed because it only showed a tiny snippet of philosophical thinking. It was clever; it was not philosophy.

7 - It has to be 100% accurate to be right

If you are reading something and you have a choice between what looks right and what you know is right, then answer with what you know is right. Do not be fooled by them re-stating the question in the multiple-choice answer.

8 - Don't learn a speech

Apparently, the students that recite a speech are the ones that are usually marked down the most. Maybe it is because they sound like kindergarten students narrating a school play.

9 - Leave gaps between paragraphs to add stuff later

If you feel like you may like to add things later, then do not try to squeeze it into the margin. Leave large gaps between your paragraphs, and you will be able to add lines in later. There are no rules about layout with regards to how much space you leave between paragraphs.

10 - Credit your sources

If you add a source to your exam paper, then credit your sources with a bibliography if you can. Many times, it is easier to simply state the idea and say which person said it within the sentence/paragraph you are writing.
