“Quote of the Day” (3 days left to Final Exam!)

Let’s share some exam preparation tips:

1. Do your past years and tutorials. Don’t just read the answers and say “It all makes sense”. You must do it first, then check for answers. If the answer is not given, go and see your lecturer and they will be glad to mark it for you.

“One must learn by doing the thing, for though you think you know it, you have no certainty until you try.”

– Aristotle-

2. Practice doing a hard question or problem until you get used to it. The more you practice, the better. Reading study material alone won’t help that much.

“Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence.”

– Colin Powell-

3. If you stuck on anything, just ask anyone who knows it. Be it your friends, seniors, tutors and lecturers. You can make new friends by doing that too.

” He who is ashamed of asking is ashamed of learning.”

-Danish proverb-

4. Believe in yourself. Increase your self-esteem. You are not a loser. You are a successful person yet to be unleashed. Exams are meant to assess how successful you are. If you think that you can, you are more likely to be able to do it. If you think you can’t, you are more likely to fail.

“Only the strongest egos escape the trap of perfectionism. To solve problems successfully, you must believe you can, must feel capable enough to improvise. Yet too many adults have been schooled away from their ability to experiment freely.”

-Marsha Sinetar-

Good luck. All the best in your examination. “Sijil Hijau” for everyone.
