Study For Your Test
Study for your test! 3 simple principles which have been recommended by your tutors are of course fundamentally important, but examiners tend to respond positively to evidence and information gathered outside of these. Be sure to read the below, word for word.
If you do make reference to something you have read on the internet or in any other written form it is essential that you acknowledge it by referencing it. You must at all costs avoid plagiarism! Do not pretend the work of others is your own. You will invariably be found out. Trust me!
Study For Your Test – Are You Extremely Gifted?
Unless you are very smart and supremely gifted or you possess infallible good luck, then the need to study for your test is absolutely vital and there is absolutely no way around it. Studying for exams should already be an integral part of your student life just from past experience. It is not something you start just a few weeks or even months before the event. But “how best to study?” you ask. Well here are some useful pointers that will help you along the way.
The organization of your study time should be paramount. You should arrange to study for your test somewhere where you can be relaxed, free from interruption and where you feel secure with no distractions or interruptions. You should ensure that you have access to the resources you need such as a desk, PC or laptop and any other essential items.
Try to create your own ambiance, or matrix, in which you feel happy working. Whatever it is that helps you concentrate, be sure to have it with you. Many students find that playing music at a reasonable volume helps them to concentrate while others prefer silence. You need to find what best suits you and use it.
Another essential ingredient for successful exam study is discipline. It should not be random or hit and miss. Planned times should be designated for study and you must try to keep to these around you while you study for your test.
There will always be temptations for you, to do other things all of which may seem infinitely preferable than having to work, but you should try and resist these when they are offered. If you do have to miss a planned study session then have a contingency plan to make up for what has been missed.
