How to Maximise Your Test and Exam Scores
Many people find examination periods very stressful. Exam and test scores can be a worry at times, especially when they define our future plans of study and work. However, there are some great methods to maximise your marks to give you a wider range of opportunities in life. Some of them are a little obvious, but we all need encouragement.
While this may sound redundant, studying would happen to be the best way to maximise your marks. You cannot rely on your brain to remember every detail that you need to pass an examination with flying colours, so you need to revise the coursework. This, however, does not mean crashing the night before, staying up until all hours and trying to remember what on earth mitosis could possibly refer to. Its best to start study several weeks before the tests.
2. Fluke it.
Never, ever leave questions blank. Leaving a question with no answer severely depletes your chances of getting good marks - especially when you do it over and over again. Always try to write an answer down, even when you have no idea, so that you can hope to pick up a mark or two. Additionally, never leave a multiple choice question blank, either. There's only 4 options, giving you a 25% chance that if you guess, you'll pick the right one.
3. Treat yourself well.
A stressful exam period does not mean that you have to neglect your body and mind in favour of hard study, or any other activity. During any exam period, it is best to get good nights of sleep, eat healthily, drink lots and excercise. This will not only help you recall more information when it comes to exam time, but you will feel less stressed-out about it all.
