  • How to get through any exam without worryingBy Maxwell Ranasinghe
  • Your plan
    Have you implemented it ?
    Have you attended the lectures regularly ?
    Have you participated in the class actively ?
    Have you studied regularly ?
    If so, you have already passed the exams
    There is no better way than the above method
  • Some practical study techniques
    Read the notes fast and combine/ visualize the knowledge you got through the lectures
    Read the notes with care and underline or highlight the important areas
    Make a short note based on what you have understood
    Make mind maps as to your short notes
    Make Acronyms for ease of memory
  • Read out your short note silently
    Read your short note as if you are delivering a lecture and record it onto your phone or a digital recorder
    Play the recorded when you are relaxing to have it like a background music
    Use you as your own lecturer
  • Find a good friend and invite him to your home
    Make joint studies
    Get pass papers and develop answers
    If possible hold a Kuppi Class for your friend /friends
  • Use communication technology
    Have a chat session on internet by posing questions to your friends
    Have an SMS session Q & A with a friend
    Have conference calls on Q & A
    Send questions on facebook
  • Do not try to over study an area that you cannot really understand well.
    You always a have a choice and you will not fail just because you do not understand one topic or a module.
    Try and do well in the areas that you like most
  • Final days before the day of exams
    Have the time table of the exams in a visible place and make a note it on your organizer
    If exams are held in a different place than the place you go for lectures, find out the place in advance
    Get all the pens, pencils etc ready well in advance
    Get your dress ready before the exam day
    Never study till late night just before the exam day
    Relax and go to the exam hall early
    Plan to go early for the exam
  • Check your desk
    Check the sitting arrangement
    Check the desk in and out anything pasted or written in the desk
    Keep all the papers books, phones away from your desk
    Never plan to copy or help others in exams
  • Write your INDEX NO Correctly
    Plan your time
    Read the whole paper carefully before you start answering
    Select the easy questions first and answer but do not over write
    See how much of marks are given for the answer
    Write your answer plan or structure
  • Do not over write and go out of time for other questions-
    leave some space if you want to come back and write more
    Take care about your handwriting
    Highlight important points
    Use examples to explain theory
    Use diagrams and graphics well
  • Jot down ideas as they come to you.While you are answering one question, information about another may suddenly occur to you.
    Jot it down them somewhere because when you come to that question perhaps an hour later, you may have forgotten it.
  • Don't leave any question unanswered.If you are short of time, answer in point form. Remember, you can only be marked on the answers you give.
  • Never leave the room early.If you have time at the end, go over your work, add information (eg in the margin). You can't return if you suddenly remember a fact after you have left. Certain examiners mark the time on paper if you leave early.
  • Do not spend too long on multiple choice questions.With multiple choice questions it is best to cover the answers and work out your own before looking at the choices on paper. If you can't answer the question come back to it later - have a guess.
  • Never omit an entire question.No matter how well you answer other questions, you must leave time for all questions –
    a perfect answer can still only earn a certain number of marks.
    If you write nothing, you can't receive any marks and you have lost all your marks for a particular question. Write something - it may at least give you a few points.
  • - Get clarifications from invigilators
    If you have any ambiguity as to questions you may get clarifications
    Check again that you have written the correct Index Number
    Check that you have answered the required number of questions from different parts of the exam paper
  • Do not discuss much about the answers you wrote with others after the exam
    Never give up just because you think that you did not do well
    Be positive
    Lets get on with the next paper
  • Good Luck
