Exams ARGH!   1 comment


So, for all you Uni and School kids out there you’re probably right in the thick of the exam period. Having sat many myself over the years I know your pain and have experienced that peak of stress that might cause a man with thinner hair to become instantaneously bald. I’ll give you two tips that I’ve learnt over the years. Firstly, the exam is generally made so much easier by the hard work that is put in during classes/lectures and assignments leading up to the final exam. If you haven’t really done much work prior to the exam, I suggest you lead your eyes towards this second tip: do not cram for the exam! Start studying at least a week before the exam to allow ample time, variable on the level of difficulty and sheer coverage of the subject/paper at hand. You may think that cramming will allow you to remember more information as you are processing it closer to the exam, however this could not be further from the truth. APPLICATION is key to solidifying information in your brain, whether this be discussion in groups or going over past tests/exams; especially true if you are a kinesthetic learner such as myself. Anyway, remember that although the hard work may be a bit sucky in the short term, in the long term it is most definitely worth it! Oh, and Good Luck!
