Preparation for Examinations
Tamilnow Articles -> Prepare for Examinations
Examination time is a time of worries and tension for students and parents. It is necessary to do good preparation to contain this pressure, in order to achieve excellent results.
When the portions are almost over, it is time for studying the subjects thoroughly and revising them. Make a special time table for this purpose.
Out of the total 24 hours of the day, students need at least six hours of sleep, while 4 hours of time can be used for playing, entertainment, food, and other personal daily chores. Rest of the 14 hours needs to be made efficiently useful for success in the examinations.
Method of Study
The allotted 14 hours of study should be further subdivided for different types of learning. One hour needs to be used for reading and drawing pictures. It is necessary to write and study in order to gain speed in the examination hall. If we do not have sufficient speed, it becomes difficult to complete answering all the questions.
The available time for study should be distributed among each of the subjects. It is helpful if we consider two aspects here.
Some students try to study one subject fully before starting another one. By the time they finish studying all the subjects, they tend to forget what they learned first. In order to avoid this difficulty, try to study all the subjects daily.
This again has another advantage. It will help to reduce the loss of interest in studying a single subject alone. Also, it will help to generate interest in all the subjects.
Since our brain stores different subjects in different locations, studying all subjects regularly will enhance the power of your brain, by stimulating different parts of the brain.
Make points while learning each and every subject. Try to do this subject-wise, as well as, lesson-wise. It will help us to revise faster. Learn all the lessons repeatedly before the examination. Success depends on how many times we repeat the lessons. We should revise a minimum of 3 times at least.
For example, if you have 40 days for learning, the first revision, which takes more time, should be given more time (give at least 20 days of time). The second revision needs less time only, so assign 12 days to do that. The third revision can be given another 8 days.
If you have the notes which you have made while studying, you can do a quick revision also. This will help to have memory of all things learnt during exam time.
Success on any venture primarily depends on its preparation. This applies for examinations too. Whatever hinders the preparation for exams should be avoided. Have courage to do that. You will surely succeed.
