When it comes to board exams, it sends shivers down a student’s spine. Especially the thought of not being able to finish the exam scares students the most. Usually, these issues arise because the students are so busy studying that they don’t practice enough and lack time management skills. This is why to help students finish their exams on time, we decided to come up with 5 effective tips:
- Practice Sample Papers & Mock Tests
Solving sample papers and mock tests before exams can gradually help students in getting a better grasp of exam patterns, the type of questions, and an estimated idea of how much time is required to solve each question. Apart from solving sample papers, students should also follow a certain timeline and finish the paper in that given time phase.
- Take Proper Rest Before Exam
Sometimes students exhaust themselves too much right before the examinations. They’re studying till the last minute, which takes a toll on their overall health and performance. Instead of studying till the last minute, you should get enough sleep and rest before the exam. So on the examination day, you’re not tired rather full of energy and zeal. If you are well rested you will be able to focus better on solving questions.
- Pack Everything You Need In Advance Before Exam
Did you know? Most of the times students reach late to examination centers because they left their pencil boxes or cardboards at their homes. A lot of of times they realize after reaching the examination hall that their pens are running out of ink or they’re not carrying a pencil or eraser. You can reduce this risk by creating a checklist in advance tick off everything when you packed them.
- Attempt Easy Questions First
This is one of the most common, tried, and tested approaches when it comes to solving questions. If you attempt the easiest questions or the questions you know the answer to before, you won’t be stuck on questions and would save yourself from wasting time. Most of the times students attempt the difficult questions first or just follow the standard exam pattern and they come across questions that they are clueless about and still try to solve them, hence wasting a lot of precious time. Keep your approach clear, don’t solve questions that you’re not 100 percent sure about, or leave them to attempt at last.
- Don’t Panic During The Examination
This is the last and most important advice we have for you. Stress and anxiety are two killers of productivity. If students get nervous during the examination, they should take a breather, drink some water and focus on breathing. It will help them ease their stress.
