With the exam season making
rounds, it's all stress and worry everywhere. Long sleepless nights and endless
pondering over books won't suffice. You'll need these 10 super-easy tips to ace
#1: Time your day
Time management is probably the
most important concerns during an exam. A day ahead, prioritize and list down
the subjects you've got to study. Schedule your entire day, and set aside some
time to get refreshed too. Not managing your day can make you go through the
day in a haphazard way.
#2: Take it easy
Peer pressure and parental
concerns can literally put you down, but don't let it affect your last-moment
preparations. Take it easy, and don't let small things pull away your
concentration. Just focus, concentrate, and give it your best.
#3: Get a good night's sleep
A good 8 hours of sleep is
important for you - Firstly because it keeps you awake, and also because while
you sleep your body gets enough rest and oxygen, which helps you think better.
Chances are, you'll be able to better recall things after you're well rested
#4: Take a break
Over-pressurizing yourself can be
harmful, and there are several examples all around you to confirm the fact.
Make sure you take a ten minute break every hour and a half, and do what
refreshes you. Facebook and twitter should not be your escape route, instead,
play with your pet, or listen to some good music, or even better-just head out
for a short walk in the open.
#5: Avoid skipping breakfast
Many students skip breakfast in
order to save time, but what most of them forget is, a starved body can sap you
of all your energy and take away all your concentration. Breakfast, being the
most important meal of the day, should never be avoided.
#6: Try group studies
Group studies are a good way to
lessen the burden and at the same time, motivate you. When studying in a group,
it is most likely that your doubts will be cleared, and studying won't be
monotonous and boring. Just make sure you actually study though!
In the midst of all the pressure,
don't forget to breathe. Deep breathing can actually calm down your nerves and
makes you feel relaxed. It also helps you hold your perspective and think
clearly. So when you get stuck with a question, don't panic, just breathe.
#8: Be there on time
Many students lose track of time
while studying, which means last moment hurries and forgotten hall passes. Make
a mental note or set an alarm to reach atleast half an hour before your paper.
That way, you'll be less disorganized and hurried, and more relaxed and
#9: Avoid distractions
It's easy to be distracted during
exams, and most students even joke about watching a fan rotate being more
interesting during exams. In such a case, get into a room, shut the door, and
turn off your cellphone. Remind your siblings that you have an exam and ask
them not to disturb you.
A starved body can affect what you pen down-believe it
or not. A healthy meal having a good protein content can make you better ace
that test, and with confidence.
