Exam-Taking Tips (part I)

As the SA2 is coming, I read some material that can help my child in preparing and taking the exam. Below are my notes, hope other parents and students can benefit from it too.

Before exam:

Get Organized:
-organized your study place.
-Mark your calendar on the exam date, so that you can have enough time to prepare for the exam. Don’t wait for the last minutes before exam.

During exam:
Attempt Questions:
-Pay attention to the instruction of what you are asking to do.
-Avoid careless mistake, write neatly.
-Answer the easiest questions first. Make a mark on the difficult question that reminds yourself to come back later.

Time management:
-Use time wisely. Check your pace. Speed up the pace if you can, but don’t rush.
Accurate is better than fast

Check work:
-Check with before hand it in. Makes sure all the questions has completed.
-Only change the answer when you have good reason to do so as your first answer is usually the best.

After Exam:
– Learn from the mistake.
study the exam paper to see what kinds of mistake you were making (careless, don’t know, etc), correct the mistake.
– Revise, revise, revise.
Don’t throw all the things that you learn back to teacher.
Revise frequently.
