Tips & Tricks-Best Exam Revision Techniques:
These simple tips and tricks would help you to score well in the upcoming SSC Board Exam 2019.
1. Revise Little and Often: Follow Pomodoro Technique
It is recommended to revise for short sessions and take a break. The simple steps to the Pomodoro technique are as follows. This technique works well, as your mind is relaxed and not exhausted.
- Decide the chapter to revise
- Set your timer to 25 minutes
- Work on the chapter thoroughly
- End revision as the timer rings
- Take a break of 3 to 5 minutes
- Repeat Four Pomodoros
- Take a long break of 15-30 minutes
Start Again with Step 1
2. Still Reading the Class Notes: Rethink
It’s not the time to keep turning the pages of your class notes that you started writing from day one of your academic start.
Have your notes/sheets with pointers to all chapters and topics. You may also have a flowchart of your long answers. Reread these pointers as it would lay an imprint in your mind. You can easily connect and expand the points in the exam hall.
You may also make post-it notes with the question on one side and answers at the backside. And, pick any of the note random, read the question and try to recall. Then, check the answer. Repeat revision if needed.
3. Maximize Your Learning Potential: Know Where You Fit In
Everybody has their learning methods like visual, auditory, read-write, kinesthetic.
- If you are a visual learner, use maps, charts, flashcards, highlight the main points, and focus on the title.
- If you are an auditory learner, read study material aloud, listen to lecture recordings, use word associations, record your voice and replay it.
- If you are of the read-write type, reword the notes, make bullet points, repeat the learnings. You will be able to easy recall and write the points in the exam.
- If you are a kinesthetic learner, use flash cards, discuss and study with others, move around the room or garden, set any practical task to test the learnings.
Do not merely follow the timetable set by someone else. See, where you fit in, what is comfortable for you and follow it to maximize your learning potential.
4. Take Practice Tests and Online Test Series: Attend Regularly
During revision time, you can start attending mock tests, online test series one by one, solve previous year question papers, and, etc.
It is recommended to take practice tests from day one of your academics. As you finish a chapter reading in school, attend the practice test and keep the doubts off then and there itself.
Ezeetest App helps you to attend these tests easily. You may download the ezeetest app for free and attend the tests on a regular basis.
Moreover, to revise the syllabus regularly, you can follow the 0+1+7+30 technique and retain the learnings efficiently.
5. Track Your Progress: Keep A Check On Your Learning Graph
Track your academic progress. Be the self-evaluator. Check yourself and know which topic[s] you are good at.
Many a time, it happens that you might have scored 5/5 marks in the Unit test, but have scored 3.5/5 in the mid-term exam for the same question.
Know where you lagged. Know which one you always get right, and which one needs repeat revision.
Furthermore, the ezeetest app helps you to analyze your results and track the progress. And, mention not to say, the results are shared with your parents and teachers too from whom you can take help and moral support.
Try Diffusion! Keep the book you want to study near your head while sleeping. By morning, the knowledge may get transferred to your head, due to diffusion.
[Diffusion is a physical phenomenon, wherein there is a movement of the substances from its region of higher concentration to lower concentration].
Do remember to get up early, for the reverse is also true!!
Endnote: Stay Positive and Confident
Though I repeat this again and again, it is one of the utmost essential points. The psychological factor influences your enthusiasm and confidence level to study and prepare well.
If You Think You Can, You CAN!!
