What can you do to boost your exam performance? Here some top tips I've found useful to keep calm during exam time.
Some people may work effectively and efficiently in the morning but some may study better at night. Try to figure out when is your most productive time, if it is morning, then wake up earlier to study and do your assignment in the evening.
Don’t stay up late for revising. It doesn’t help you to get a high score, your memory will be worst when you don’t have enough sleep.
Have a balanced breakfast.
Start your revision earlier, don’t be a deadline fighter. Include a time frame in your plan, make them time specific and follow your plan. If you can follow it, you will decrease the time that clearly wasted.
Identify clearly what needs to be done on that day and try your best to stick to it. If it is possible, plan how you are going to do it.
Studying with other people gives you a opportunity to figure out what you don’t know/ familiar with and it helps you personalise and interact with material which you cannot do independently.
*Don’t make the group too big, a group of three to four will be perfect
It will be counterproductive when you study for many hours without any rest. Take a coffee break or snack break every hour. Let your brain rest.
I like to have a day trip before my revision. I get return ticket, if you stay too long, you may not want to leave and go back to your work. A day is definitely enough to refresh your soul and recharge yourself. I find that I will be more productive after refreshing my mind. This method may not suitable for all the students but for me, it definitely helps.
