Tips to Help Plan Exam Time

When it comes to exams and assessments, students need to utilize every second allowed by the exam. This is often the biggest challenge for students, with many returning home with grades which don't represent their knowledge or learning capacity. They simply didn't plan their time well enough to put their knowledge onto the exam paper. If this sounds familiar, The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell NJ has a post to share with three easy to follow tips which can help.
  1. Learn to write quickly, very quickly, but not so quickly that the assessor can not read your response. As you take notes, find a balance between speed and legibility, and try to improve it.
  2. Exams can cause nerves. This happens so much so that students become so anxious that they fail to read the questions correctly. This often leads them to provide the correct answer to the question they thought they read, but unfortunately not the right answer to the actual question. Re-read every question to make sure that you understand it fully.
  3. Be realistic about your answers. If you only have 45 minutes to provide a response, don't try and fit in an extensive introduction, then three robust points, followed by a conclusion. If you do, you will end up with nothing more than a half-completed essay. Be realistic about the time that you have available and work with it.
