While it’s true that the majority of students don’t enjoy sitting exams, it isn’t always because they are disengaged in their learning. It can also be that exams, in general, overwhelm them.

It doesn’t matter whether your student enjoys sitting their exams or not, the reality is that their educational path can be determined by the grades they achieve. For this reason, it’s important for all students to prepare for each and every exam.

Tips to Help Your Child Prepare for an Exam

If your student struggles with their exams, below are some great tips from The Tutoring Center, Arlington for you to share.

Start With a Solid Plan

The best place to start any task is with a plan, and this is no exception. As soon as a student finds out that they have an upcoming exam, the first reaction should be to write down the details in their calendar or planner. With this done, consider what type and how much studying will be required to fully prepare. This could include group study sessions, visits to a museum or a library, resources you will need, and regular home-study time. Use this knowledge and work your way back two or three weeks from the exam date to schedule the estimated study time in the lead-up. This not only prevents students from forgetting about exams, but scheduling study time now ensures they are reminded with enough time to prepare.

What Is Required

Complex classes require complex exams, which means that students will often need to bring more than a pencil and a sharp mind to the exam. Depending on the subject, students may need to bring a range of tools, such as a scientific calculator or even a protractor. The week prior to the exam, confirm what tools or equipment are needed for the exam and not only make sure that you have them but also that everything is working and ready to go. For example, you may need to put fresh batteries in your a calculator. Once everything is ready, pack it together and put it all somewhere where you won't forget it. If your child struggles to prepare for their exams despite their interest in the subject, one-to-one tutoring near Arlington can help.

Earn Points

There will be times when students won’t be able to complete an exam in its entirety. One of the challenges which come from this is that students who spent the time studying and preparing miss out on achieving a high grade because the information they focused on when studying wasn’t covered in the exam until the end. In this instance, these engaged students miss out on points which can lead to self-esteem challenges. When sitting an exam, look through the exam and identify sections which you are confident that you can answer quickly and correctly. Once you have completed these questions, move through the rest of the exam. This technique can help engaged students who took the time to study to be rewarded with acknowledgment of their study time.

Review Your Test

It is never a good idea to hand in an exam which you haven’t reviewed, even if it means that you won’t complete an additional few questions. As you can see the end-time approaching, be sure to set aside a few minutes to review the answers you have already provided. The reason this is so important is that whoever grades your test isn’t interested in whether or not you know the answer, they are only interested in whether or not you wrote the correct answer. If your hand becomes tired as you are writing and you put an X instead of an M, or your brain moves on to the next question before your hand has finished writing, it can lead to an incorrect answer accidentally being written. A quick review is the best way to prevent this from happening.
