How to Prepare for Examination

Written by: Nnadozie and Darlington

|Edit Article

Every Student wants to excel academically, achieving the best result after examinations. How will you feel if after racing for lectures daily, completing all your continuous assessments, spending sleepless nights studying hard to pass your exams, at the end, you end up with a D grade? Very disappointed!

Well, it doesn’t cost so much to pass exams and pass them very well. You only need to study well in advance. Then you need to know what to do as the exam date approaches in preparation for the exam. In this article, we are going to look at what you should do the night before and on the exam day in order to get distinctions A+ in your exams.

The Night before the Exam

1. Review Key points
Go through your summaries once again, the write – ups on the margins of your notes, the headings and subheadings on your handouts and textbooks. Remember, this is no time to read new materials as any effort to do so may be a waste of time. Better concentrate on what you have already read.

2. Feed Your Rumination
Spend the last few minutes before sleeping meditating on what you read. As you sleep, your brain will keep ruminating on those thoughts.

3. Get a Good Night Sleep
Consolidation of newly acquired information as part of the long term memory takes place during the REM [Rapid Eye Movement]

On the Exam Day

1. Scan your Materials
You do this to keep thoughts of your material flowing on your mind as you engage in other activities.

2. Eat a Light Breakfast
Your brain needs fuel to work at its maximum. Fasting to exam hall reduces your thinking skills by 30%.

3. Leave Early
Who knows if there would be traffic or the exam venue has been changed. Leaving early saves you anxiety which saps you of confidence and reduces your recollection ability. Get to exam hall early enough to relax and meditate.

4. Avoid Negative people
Do not surround yourself with people who boast about having to read nothing. Remember, you need to stay in a positive state of mind.

5. Do not Read New Material
You may come across a handout which you never got. Resist the urge to start reading it minutes before the exam starts. Such effort is wasteful and may at the worse confuse you on what you’ve already read.

6. Take your Sit on Time

Many students lag behind when they are called to take their sits for exam. Some even enter minutes after the exam begin in the name of revision. In my opinion, if you could not revise all night and hours before exam starts, forget the revision and write your exam.
