Transcript

  • 1. How I improve my test-taking techniques By Ellie W
  • 2. Where to Start?
    • Before I begin the test, I look at the cover. On the cover it usually tells you what sections there are in the test and how much each are worth. I like to:
    • Start with the section with the most marks, so I can achieve bigger marks then working on lower mark sections.
    • Then go down in decreasing order, of how much each section is worth.
    • I also like to plan my time. I plan my time by giving more time for the sections that are worth more marks.
  • 3. During the test
    • If I get stuck on a question I either:
    • Move on, and come back to it later.
    • Take a deep breath and try it again.
    • If I get stuck on question I like to come back to it later as there are usually easier questions or ones I can do, allowing me to achieve better marks then just staying on the one I can’t do.
  • 4. Reading over my work
    • If I am lucky enough to have finished my test and have time to spare, I:
    • Read over my work and make sure I haven’t made any mistakes
    • I also come back to the questions that I have missed or couldn’t do and try and work them out again
