Have a regular study habit: This is one suggestion I always give all my students. Studying on a daily basis helps you get in-depth knowledge on any given topic and helps in better retention.
Memorize the definitions, key points, key concepts, formulas, etc: As a student, one should always have a habit of memorizing definitions given by various authors, key events, dates, key concepts, and points. This helps in pleasing the examiner because he/she will get an idea if the key points of an answer are presented well, that the student is well versed with the content.
Avoid grammatical errors: As a teacher, what puts me off while checking the papers, are grammatical errors. Please make sure that you avoid such errors and frame proper, meaningful sentences.
Cover all the relevant points in the answer: To attain this, you have to time yourself well. If you decide to give 30 minutes for an answer, start writing fast from the beginning. Maintain a constant speed and at the end of half an hour, try to finish the answer. Even if you feel the answer has more points to be discussed, cut it short and proceed to the next question.
Presentation of the answer: The answer should begin with an introduction to the topic which should not be more than 2 lines or 40 words. The introduction should be followed by the body of the answer. The body should have a minimum of 3 paragraphs and a maximum of 6 paragraphs.
The content should be presented in the form of points wherever possible. Leave lines wherever necessary and make your answer look neat. Write in clear handwriting.
Before the exam: Study the paper format and go through previous year’s question papers and understand the flow of questions and the options available in the question papers.
Stay calm, eat healthy and sleep well: Take proper rest and don’t get nervous. Remember, it’s just an exam.
