Exam Preparation: Study Tips and Guidelines

Hard work is a key to success. Learning part and portion of a syllabus is incomplete way for an examination preparation. Syllabus is designed to cover in a certain period. Proper planning and execution of planning with the help of good study materials can help students to achieve good score. Good students study complete prescribed syllabus. They try to develop better understanding of complete syllabus.

Wise students do regular study right from the beginning of an academic session. They develop their own study skill for developing better understanding. They fight with themselves to perform better in an examination system. They set their own target to achieve in a day to day life.

Wise students develop a better understanding of Question Pattern. Basic concept never changes. Language of question may be easy/complex/difficult but answer of that question belongs to basic concept.  A student who knows Newton’s 3 Law of Motion can give all questions’ answer based on this concept. We should try to understand the language of question.

Concrete biopsy of Question Paper Pattern

  1. Prepare a list of potentials and prospective questions based on study, nature of questions of previous years, teachers’ hint etc

Wise student analyzes question pattern of an exam. He prepares a list of potential and prospective questions based on previous year and on complete prescribed syllabus.

  1. A question paper consists of different types of questions:-

Questions pattern (a) Factual (b) Inferential(c) Analytical

  • Multiple choice questions
  • True and false
  • Matching questions
  • Fill in the blanks
  • Distinguishes between two similar or opposite nature
  • One word answer
  • Descriptive (Essay/Article)
  • HOTS
  • Many more according to need, and objective of the examination

Previous years question papers will give an insight about the nature of questions

Language of questions

Important questions repeatedly asked in consecutive years

  1. Writing practice in solving a set of question paper within a time frame

Wise students prepare a list of probable questions and do more and more practice to make a command on them. When a child appears for a board examination i.e. matriculation/ intermediate/advance intermediate; s/he should practice on a complete question set and try to solve it within a time frame. It helps student to develop a better understanding and more writing practice has great psychological and physiological effect. Students gain self confidence and self realization for taking a step of correction for improving weak points of learning.

It is better to discuss about the quality content of answer with peers/friends. It is beneficial for both the students i.e. evaluator and writer. Sometimes, student should read his own written answer script. Student gets an insight if s/he reads his own answer script. Student should re-read it after a gap of 5-6 hours so that mind works actively at that time and he would be able to identify mistakes which a student may do in extreme pressure.
