Examinations are among the scariest tests for many students but not when you prepare and study your lesson well. In my school days I manage to pass many of my exams because I make it a point to attend the class everyday. I listen attentively to the lectures and make sure that I take down important notes and highlights of the lesson
It is also important to study in advance before attending to your class. In that way you can follow the lectures. Doing so will also help you to store knowledge and have quick understanding. Once the examination comes you will be amazed with the continuous flowing of what you have studied. It will come out the way you have learned it.
During the examination week I also make it a point to sleep and wake up early so I can prepare my things without rushing. I do this as recommended by my teachers and professors. According to them getting a good sleep will give you a healthy mind. I also see to it that I come early to the test schedule.
And while taking the exams I see to it that I read and understand the instructions as well as the questions. Then as soon as I am done and have some more time, I always review my answers before passing my paper. In that manner it helps me to see some possible errors I may have overlooked.
