L2 improving exam scores Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Lesson 2: Tips for the Exam
  • 2. Reduce Stress
    • Chronic stress does in fact physically damage the brain, it can make remembering much more difficult. After prolonged stress, the brain will start to become affected and deteriorate.
    • When under stress, your brain releases adrenaline and later, cortisol--both of which damage the recall of memory in your brain.
    • Stress may never be completely eliminated from one's life, but it definitely can be controlled . Try to relax , focus on your breathing and focus your mind on the day.
  • 3. Eat Good Food on the Day
    • Get your 5 a day.
      • Thiamine, Vitamin E, Niacin and Vitamin B-6 are known to boost brain power.
    • Drink lots of water!
      • Dehydration is counter productive when trying to study and retain information!
    • Grazing, or eating 5 or 6 small meals throughout the day instead of 3 large meals!
      • improve mental functioning (including memory) by limiting dips in blood sugar, which may negatively affect your brain.
  • 4. Give Yourself Five...
    • Give yourself time to form a memory. Memories are very fragile in the short-term, and distractions can make you quickly forget something as simple as a phone number.
    • The key to avoid losing memories before you can even form them is to be able to focus on the thing to be remembered for a while without thinking about other things, so when you’re trying to remember something, avoid distractions and complicated tasks at this time.
  • 5. Go to Bed!
    • The amount of sleep we get affects the brain's ability to recall recently learned information.
    • Getting a good night's sleep -- a minimum of seven hours a night
      • (consistently) will improve your short-term memory and long-term relational memory, according to recent studies conducted at the Harvard Medical School.
