Now that you have revised the key knowledge areas for each subject, it is time to apply this knowledge to exam questions. Here are some hints on how plan appropriately to tackle exam questions:
When you are answering multiple choice questions:
a. Read the stem of each item, and tell yourself what it is saying.
b. Try to eliminate or reject the alternatives that you think are incorrect
c. Check over the alternatives you have left and decide which one is most likely to be correct.
If you can’t answer a question straight away, leave it and return to it later. Don’t stew over it for too long as you will lose valuable time. Tell yourself that you DO know something about this question, and will remember more when you come back to it later. Positive self-talk such as this is very important.If you forget important information, think of when you last heard or saw it. Imagine seeing the ideas written down or being spoken about.
Use practice exam papers as a guide for topics you need to do more revision on.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, feel confident about how well you can show what you know. Know that you have the ideas stored in your mind andyour job is now to display them.
