Time Management Tips for Exam:
Time management is a key to excel in every competitive exam. Students should master this skill before appearing for exam.
A) Before exams-
1. Set your priorities- Prioritize your “to-do” list the night before or first thing in the morning. This will keep your mind focused on the most important task first.
2. Make a study schedule- It is important to plan well and be organized much before the examination starts. Developing a study schedule for all tests ensures that adequate time is given for learning each lesson and subject. Check how many days are available and chalk out the plan accordingly. Make a study timetable and mark the hours needed for each lesson.
3. Practice writing- If you don’t do practice papers before an exam, you might be surprised at how difficult it is to write quickly and legibly. A lot of practice is necessary to make sure that one can write quickly Choose the writing instruments carefully and practice writing fast in them.
4. Use a timer- Use a timer to keep you on time with each task. If you know you can read 20 pages of a book in an hour, allow yourself one hour to do it, otherwise you may find yourself still staring at the book two hours later because you were distracted.
5. Get a study guide- Every current study guide will have practice tests, study materials, and approaches for taking the exam. Typically these guides offer simulated exams as well so that you can simulate the examination and your performance.
B) During exam-
Time in the exam hall is one of the key factors in how well you score. Besides proper preparation and study for the exam, it is important to manage time in the exam.
1. Read every question carefully- When you receive the paper, skim through every question before you even pick up your pen. Skimming the paper allows you to find important information that might be tucked away in the exam, as well as figure out which questions you want to answer if you’re given a choice
2. Answer the easy questions first- A sound time-management strategy during exams is to answer the easy questions first. The idea is that you will quickly work through these questions, probably quicker than you had budgeted for, allowing you extra time to work on the more difficult sections. If there are questions with calculation needing extra time leave them for present and answer in the next run.
3. Focus on a question’s worth- After you’ve answered the easy questions; focus your time on the questions that are worth the most points.
4. Use a watch- Make sure that you wear a watch so that you can stick to your time budget. You won’t be able to bring a cell phone to the test with you, and there may not be a clock on the wall, so you’ll need to remember your timepiece.
5. Calculate your time per question- Dedicate one or two minutes at the beginning of the exam to find out which questions deserve more time and which ones can be finished quickly. Then time accordingly and proceed to answer the easy ones first, so that you manage to finish a lot in little time. Then approach the questions that will take more time to write.
- Start with clearing your doubts in each section and focus on weak sections more.
- After clearing the concepts, solve as many questions as you can along with previous year question papers.
- Keep revising your short notes to remember important formulas and rules.
- Keep practising mock tests and previous year’s questions. It will make you aware of the type of questions asked in the exam.
