Useful Strategies for Exam Success

Exam preparation hours are often limited. Your workload is normally considerable. Strategy is therefore essential if you should be to be as effective as possible.

I use many school and university students to enhance their exam performance. Planning out revision time is a key factor to gaining confidence with a powerful sense to be fully prepared. When planning, it’s good to be as specific as possible with allocation of time to task 2022 jamb expo. For example, as opposed to assign “all day Monday” to “Maths”, divide up your day into 40-45 minute blocks and assign blocks of time to specific topics within Maths. If you’re good with maintaining concentration, then maybe you are in a position to push your focus to being effective for two consecutive time blocks before going for a short break. However, human concentration span tends to begin to peter out after 40 minutes – and there’s no point in sitting there reading exactly the same material 3 x without actually absorbing it. Give yourself a quick (five to ten minute) break where you re-hydrate (water is fine) and think about things apart from algorithms or vectors.

If you begin this technique sufficiently early, you’ll also have the capability to vary subject material throughout the day – perhaps Maths each day and Biology in the afternoon. Brains love variety for refreshment purposes. Set up a study schedule with this detail and display it in full view. It will even assure you that you’ll cover all the material as you may have clearly assigned time to each topic, and help to cut back your stress levels as you may have broken up that huge, looming “whole subject” into manageable parts.

After you’ve completed each of your topics within your time blocks, tick them off on your own schedule to emphasise that sense of achievement. Remember, at the end of each day, to relax and unwind effectively – you’ll must be fully recovered to be top of your game to obtain back into it tomorrow.
