Motivate Your Exam Planning

| January 15, 2012 | 0 Comments

It goes without saying that exams are stressful, because of their importance and how much is at stake.  Doing well in your exams and getting good marks will help you get into the university of your choice and will play a role in helping you get the career you want. It is therefore worthwhile to spend as much time as you can preparing for each exam.

With January exams fast approaching, most of you will have to start thinking about examinations. An important part of preparing to take examinations is in your pre-exam preparation.

You need to be motivated to do well in the exam – this includes reasonably making time to revise, to make sure you have enough rest ahead of the exam, and that you are not left caught short at the last minute by having the wrong reading material, pen colour or seat number!

You need to think to yourself, “what do I want to get out of this” – reminding yourself that you are at University to study and get the qualifications that will help you get your dream job is a great way to motivate yourself to work hard for your exam. Think about how proud you will feel with that achievement.

Once you have reignited your desire to study and do well, you can implement an effective revision timetable.  Go over the term’s curriculum and make sure you understand all of the key topics and terms – it may seem obvious, but revision is essential for scoring high marks in an exam. If you fail to revise properly your results will suffer, so allow yourself enough revision time for each and every exam.

Schedule your revision time according to need. Spend more time revising those subjects you find difficult or more challenging. Subjects that you find easier will still need revision, but you may need less time for these. With a well-balanced revision timetable, you will be better able to focus and keep yourself motivated for your exams.
