Believe in yourself. You have inborn ability and capacity to learn. Nobody is superior and nobody is inferior in this world. We are unique individuals. There is only a thin layer difference between success and failure. Successful people accepts challenges and work very hard to achieve them; failure people blames his failure on different other aspects. We are complete human beings.
Believe in yourself. You can perform well in the examination. Yes, I am not less than other. It may be possible that other’s has more facilities than ‘I’ but textbook is same, syllabus is same, curriculum is same, teacher is same and question paper is same for one and all therefore I have same opportunity than others to crack the illusion of an examination.
Believe in your gained knowledge of subjects during academic year. I will appear in the examination. I will write in the examination so I will prepare my complete prescribed syllabus during an academic session. A wise student studies well and studies continuously for covering prescribed syllabus. It does not matter that some had studies 5 hours in a week and 30 hours in a month but if a student studies 1-2 hours regularly, s/he will make a big difference in the examination.
Take care of your health during examination. A wise student not only works very hard for an examination but takes care of his health before and during the examination. It is crucial time for proper study and rational revision. Falling ill for one day can have negative impact on our mind. So wise students:
@ Drink Enough Water
@ Do Breakfast Regularly and on time
@ Take Healthy Diets
Practice according to your own capacity. We are unique in all most all aspects. If we rely on our own way of learning styles and practice adequately according to our need, we will surely be a good performer. It is always attractive to know other’s way of learning but I cannot copy and instill other’s personality traits into my own personality. It is always better to practice according to need and nature of an examination. Wise student ensure learning so that at the time of examination he can recall and write on the answer sheet. Proper practice and practice several times using different tools and techniques are best solution of many problems.
**Revise learnt topics as many times as you can** rather than worrying about what you do not know
Keep yourself engaged for a short while with your social or other recreational activities. Mind retains information for a long time only when we collect it in a peaceful mind. Learning is a complex phenomenon. Peaceful mind receives more information than information collected in a complex situation. Wise student takes a short time break during revising lessons or learning different topics. (***** Warning it must be for a short period***** otherwise ***)
Follow healthy habits and learn from each and every experience in life. Positive habit formation helps an individual to become an integrated personality. Good performers always form right habit for learning new things, at the beginning of a new academic session. We learn from our different experiences. We analyze different hurdles, complexities and difficulties during our learning. We modify our learning styles to rectify these difficulties for a better performance.
Fix a comfortable place for study i.e. chair, table or other things. We train our mind to study well and retain information for a long time. When we fix a place for doing study, it helps us in studying well. It avoids distraction and increases concentration of student. We know that “more concentration, more understanding”. Our place of study should have proper light and availability fresh air for peace of mind.
Proper light and fresh air ***
Prepare a time table suitable to your ability, capacity, persistent and consistent nature. Generally it is observed that student makes a compact time table which may be continue for a few days but it fails in long term learning. No need to follow other’s instructions, suggestions and styles while preparing our time table. We need to prepare a concrete and rational time table for study different subjects. We need to evaluate our own capacity i.e.
How much time I will be able to sit?
How much time I have for self study?
How much time I can give for revision while performing other life essential tasks?
How much time I need for prepare myself for next tasks?
Develop a habit for reading consistently for whole year; no matter even if only one hour in a day. I never find a miraculous person in my life who has achieved great result in an academic field by working hard at 11th hours of examination. Working very hard before an examination is completely destroying one’s self because magic happens with once and at once in millions of people, otherwise a person who studies consistently for whole academic year; s/he only creates wonder in life. A wise student studies rationally and practice well before an examination for a better result. What do you think?
Have all your materials ready before you begin study-pencils, pens, papers, books, notebooks, notes or other study related materials. A better concentrated mind works well during a tense situation. We should keep all necessary study materials near our study table so that whenever we need it, we can access it on right time. It saves our time as well as makes us efficient learner. It does not make any extra pressure.
Do not depend on others; work at your own pace. A good learner does not depend on others notes and resource materials. A good learner does not think about other’s way of working. Learning is completely a personal phenomenon. He develops own rational ways, techniques and tools for concrete learning. Wise learner does not expect magical support from other in the examination hall.
Do not waste your time with friends for collecting new notes on untouched topics day before examination. Wise student takes wise decision for better performance in the examination. Suppose if a student has prepared 94 percent of syllabus before one day of examination so he will adopt practical approach. I think it is better to ensure complete learning of covered syllabus, proper revision and proper practice so that there is no place of a little confusion. It may not be wise to ask notes from friend and preparing it just before examination. It is completely wasting of time. We want to reach everywhere but time does not allow us therefore revision is best medicine rather wandering here and there.
Do not learn any new material the night before the examination. Whatever happened, it happened for good thing. Whatever you studied, you studied for good result. Now, it is time to fix your learning. It is time to ensure that you have learnt very well. Develop a sense of satisfaction, a sense of confidence and strong will power to rethink, reconsider and recapitulate for better performance in the examination. If we write quality answer only then examiner will evaluate our answer properly. It is not wise to waste most precious time on exploring new material before examination.
Restore, Refresh, Relax, Rejoice, & Rejuvenate Yourself before an Examination. Can we talk with our friend? Can we talk with our family members? Can we hear our favorite music? Can we draw a picture? Can we dance to release our stress? Wise students act on various ways and means for developing concentration level before an examination. It will be purely our own choice.
