Are you ready? EXAM WEEK IS HERE!!

Some tips on preparing & studying for exams:

  • Be an ACTIVE learner, not a passive one! This means the more you manipulate, write down & re-write down key ideas while you are studying, the more likely you will be to remember them.
  • Begin by reading through your notes a couple of times, while highlighting vocabulary, topics & subtopics.
  • Remember to work from concept to detail, not the other way around. This may mean you will need to outline your notes initially & break things down a bit.
  • Make charts, diagrams and graphs.
  • Make lists.
  • Use flash cards – these are always helpful with concepts & vocabulary words.
  • Do not wait until the night before to begin studying!

On exam day:

  • Prepare a few notes the night before, so you can glance at key concepts you want to be refreshed of before the exam – Do not try to “cram” a whole lot into your brain right before; it won’t work.
  • Get a good night’s sleep.
  • Remember to bring necessary writing utensils & materials to the test.
