Tips to Taking Your Major Exams

Before  the Christmas break, schools from most levels normally set a term exam, and  you want your holiday break to be worry free, you can prepare for your exams through the following tips.

  1. Review your notes days or a week ahead of exam schedule. Some students would normally review hours or a night before their exam and with so many subjects to review on, chances are, you will simply forget all your reviewed ideas. 
  2. Prepare an outline. Reading and highlighting important ideas on your notes or books can help you remember but writing an outline will make the review easier and more effective. 
  3. Study in a well - lighted room away from interruption. Don't review when you are on a sleep - position since this will invite you to take a sleep. A good light will help you get focused and driven.
  4. Join a study group. If you find it boring to review alone, then, join groups who prioritize exams. 
  5. Review on the subject outline and / or references given. When these resources are given, you have better chances of answering questions that may be asked in your exams.
  6. Take memory - boasting fruits, and vegetables. Anthocyanin-Containing Fruits like  all types of berries, cherries, black currents, eggplants, red / black / purple grapes, plums, rhubarb, red onion, red apples, red / purple cabbage, and red beets and  Cruciferous vegetables like arugula, bok choy, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, Chinese cabbage, collard greens, Daikon, Kale, Kohlrabi, mustard greens, radishes, rutabaga, turnips and watercress,  leafy vegetables including eafy green vegetables like spinach, collard, mustard greens, kale and Swiss chard. 
  7. Have fun in between reviews to get you recharged. If you have sitting for hours reviewing for exams, have an hour or two to relax and to help you get going. A small walk or a short film may suffice.
