Hey pals, mid-year exams commenced on Saturday last week, it is too late to start preparing you exams from now on, but it is time to make sure your exams would be kept on the right track. This week’s blog post aims to provide some useful tips for your upcoming exams. Remember, long-term planning is gone, but you can handle what will be happened for now.
At the final week before the exam, you would be better to fine tune you understanding of the key concepts and topics, reducing your lecture notes and tutorial discussions to a compendious version. Then write practice answers keeping to the time that will be allowed in the exam. Don’t forget to double check your exam date, location, starting time, overall length, number, and type of questions. Make sure your writing style fits in with exam conditions. Rearrange your work or family commitment that might affect your exam performance.
