EDUCATION – EXAM TIPS
- Don’t leave any questions unanswered – if you are short of time, use note form. Remember, you can only be marked on the answers you give.
- Never leave the room early – if you have time at the end, go over your work, add information (e.g. in the margin). You can’t return if you suddenly remember a fact after you have left.
- Do not spend too long on multiple choice questions – with multiple choice questions it is best to cover the answers and work out your own before looking at the choices on paper. If you can’t answer the questions come back to it later – have a guess.
- Never omit an entire question – no matter how well you answer other questions, you must leave time for all questions – a perfect answer can still only earn a certain number of marks. If you write nothing, you can’t receive any marks and have lost all your marks for a particular question. Write something – it may at least give you a few points.
- Maintain a stable energy level – eating foods such as chocolate bars before an exam might give you an energy boost to begin with but your blood sugar levels will drop within an hour and your energy will plunge dramatically, making it hard for you to concentrate.
