Examination Hall: Excellent and Essential Tips for Performing well in an Examination

An examination system evaluates factual understanding, conceptual understanding and global understanding of prescribed syllabus and designed curriculum. Examination system assesses individual’s capability to interpret learning in his own language. It is not merely test of knowledge. Examination system evaluates persistent and consistent quality of an individual. It tests the attitude of an individual i.e. how does an individual perform better in extreme pressure. Examination examines individual’s overall personality. Examination systems examine individual’s desire to learn, desire to explore, desire to investigate and desire to apply learning in real life situation.

We get a systematic designed question paper in the examination hall. We solve question paper within a designed time schedule. Recalling is a tough task; it heavily depends on mental status of an individual. A good student plans very well, executes planning timely, analyzes situations and works on weak area to face the challenges of an examination. A good student reaches examination hall timely and secure his berth at right place in the examination hall. He carries all valuable items i.e. admit card, identity card, pen, pencil and other stationery items to avoid chaos in the examination hall. He occupies his seat in the examination hall. A good student studies very hard in whole academic year. Seating in the examination hall; if we perform well, we will be winner and if we neglect basics, we will be loser; we do not have other option and alternate. A good student performs following tasks in the examination hall.

 

Read the mentioned instructions of question paper thoroughly

He reads his question paper thoroughly to develop an understanding nature of questions. A question paper consists of different types of questions. A wise student reads each instruction carefully to avoid doing big mistake. He designs a plan for each and every question. Review of question paper gives an insight for designing a plan and making strategy to answer different questions in a different pace. Intensive reading of question paper helps us to decide the way of answering according to the nature of questions.

Over excitement is prohibited if you feel to attempt all questions

 A good student reads question paper properly. When he reads the question paper; it may be possible that he knows all questions’ answer or it may appear very easy but a critical thinker tries to understand the meaning of question. When he interprets properly, it will be easy to answer the given questions. He evaluates his own ability and command for given question.

Over stress is prohibited if you feel difficulty to attempt some of questions

Since, we are under pressure to perform well in the examination; it may be possible that at first instance a few questions appear too tough to be answered. It may be happened in mental pressure or it may be really difficult but in both the cases wise student keeps his shoulder high. It may be possible that during academic session, you had gone through the concept. If you feel that question’s language is difficult to understand; “give proper time to yourself, feel relax and once again read the question, it will help you to recall. Generally, language may be different or difficult but wise learner extracts right meaning for writing quality answer. Neither feels very happy nor feels very sad during reading questions; our task is to develop right understanding for given questions. No need to be hurry and feel sad in both the above cases.

Make sure your answer is relevant for the questions

A confident learner ensures that whatever he knows; he reproduces his factual and conceptual knowledge by using appropriate language while writing answer. We should take care of content and word limit in check for writing quality answer. Our answer should be precise and concrete because they will check our knowledge through the answer. Our answer should be relevant and rational. We use appropriate words and meaningful sentences for expressing our knowledge.

Easy to complex

We have to keep our confidence in check during examination. Move on to the next questions once you get stuck with a difficult question. Avoid wasting your precious time at trapped point. Return back to the difficult one or complex one question after sometimes, surely you will be able to write, since you have already read even difficult one in your textbooks. But never leave a question unanswered. Make sure that you have answered all questions.

Keep open eyes during selecting optional questions

Examination evaluates an individual’s attitude and aptitude.  Good students always keep themselves on alert mode because they read the question paper properly before starting writing answer. It has been analyzed that student has written all questions in an extremely mental pressure but on the other hand he has to write only one out of two questions. It is completely wastage of time and energy. Read instructions carefully to avoid big mistakes. Be an alert student!

Plan Time: Distribute judicious time to each and every question

A question paper consists of different types of question for checking students’ different ability within a time frame. A standard question paper is well designed by experienced and expert people. They distribute proper time to each and every question so that they keep word limit procedure. Question designer designs questions to check learners’ understanding through leading question pattern from easy to complex. We should not waste too much time on a single question which kills the time of other question.

Plan time in a systematic manner to do proper revision before final answer sheet submission

We should plan our time properly so that we have enough time to revise our written answers. Generally it is observed that we know the correct spelling of a word but could write wrongly on the paper later on which creates negative impression in teacher’s mind. We know the correct answer but in an extreme pressure, we could not write meaningful content. When we finish our paper within the time frame, we are able to revise our answer and correct or edit our mistakes.

Recheck your personal information before submitting your answer sheet

A student works hard in an academic session to reach next level in his academic life. We take so much pain so it is most important for us to check our personal information before submitting answer sheet because after then we will not get chance to correct it any more. A small mistake can become a big hurdle for us. So write you own code number/roll number/other identification prescribed by the authority for B/C answer sheets/supplementary answer sheet. Staple or tied them properly before final submission.
