Exams: Challenging Aspect of Student Life
October 21, 2004
Examinations are a test of students' knowledge and understanding of subjects in a challenging environment. They value the skills and ability to understand what is being taught and make them to prepare before hand. If they are surprise quizzes, they make to cover a lot more. Exams always make students to be specific and focused.
Here are some of the most common opinions of students overheard before exams this week: “I always feel that in exams there is always not enough time, I have realized that you cannot run away from them as there is always another one waiting around the corner, I am always scared of exams,” (who is not). Some others say, “Examinations are not really something to fear because, usually, if you attend to revising your subject you should not have too much of a problem when you get into the exam hall, they are the norm throughout school life and this may be why I have no problems with them, I have got used to exams every now and then.”
Every student has his own unique strategy to succeed in examinations and to bag good grade. To me, the best is to be organized from the beginning of studies. Make sure you understand what you read. Take notes from your reading. Explain what you have read in your own words. Study regularly and avoid wide gaps in your studies so that, when the exams come, the only thing you have to do is to call to mind what you have already learnt. I have also found it useful to practice writing down on a piece of paper the knowledge I have of my subject. This shows me what my strong and weak areas are.
Remember that exams are not the end - they are just one aspect of your student life.
