Preparing for Exams can be a bit tiring and worrying. Having a plan how and when to study will give you an edge to score a higher mark. I have listed the subjects that you will need to look over and study tips that can help you make it easy and fun!
Writing an Exam
While you write an Exam, there are things you should do. Here is my tips on writing an exam.
- the first thing you should do is ask Allah to make it easy for you and have good intention.
- Write down your name, date and class.
- Read the instructions and questions carefully. Sometimes you might loose marks because you answered the questions incorrectly. You knew the answers but you made a mistake.
- While writing your exam keep close attention to the exam. If you think it might take a while to complete make sure you finish within the time.
- Once you are done writing the exam, look it over twice or three times and check your answers.
- Last but not least, answer ALL the questions. Your Teacher might be nice and give you marks for just trying to answer the questions, even if they’re wrong. Don’t put silly answers though.
- Ask any questions to the Teacher that you don’t understand. Don’t ask the Teacher to get the answer, this is a very wrong thing to do.
Studying for an Exam
Preparation for an exam will help you be more confident during the exam. How much time you spend to study and how you spend it will determine how well you can do for the exam.
- Paying attention in class will help you out the most. On most exams they are questions the Teacher asked you during class. If you payed attention and listened to the answers this will help you out big time.
- When a Teacher gives you homework, its not because they want to make you work. It because they want to help you. While doing homework, it will help you to think on your own and try to recall what your Teacher taught you.
- Before exams, the Teacher might be having an exam review, this will be the time when paying attention and listening will help you during the exam. The Teacher won’t give you the answers but they’ll be going over what’s on the exam in general.
- When studying at home, try to pace yourself, don’t overdo it or be lazy in your studying. 10 or 20 minutes a days studying will help you with last minute studying.
- Ask one of your family members to help you out. They can read a question in your book and you can answer the questions. Ask them to ask you questions that are not in the book but talk about the same kind of thing. For example, in your book it has a list of nouns: dog, cat, fish, tree. Try to say other nouns that are NOT in the book. This will help you understand the topic rather than just memorizing the answers.
- Most importantly, keep up with your prayers and be good to your parents. Allah is the only one that makes things easy. The successful ones are the ones who are good to Allah and their parents and follow it up with good deeds.
