Good Luck! : Mid year exam 2009 preparation strategy

Hi everyone,

I’m sure that most of us are quite busy with exam preparation, but if anyone haven’t started yet,

perhaps now is the best time to start thinking about exam strategy.

Here’s some powerful and effective tips to study for your exam:

1. Cover ALL of the material relevant to the exam. Make sure you have read and FULLY understand the main concept and idea of the topic.

2. Do ALL of the past years that is RELEVANT to the exam only. This is probably the best time to ask around for some model answers as well. After that, analyze the papers for similar questions that keep popping up every year, and practice them.

3. Go and SEE your lecturer straight away if you don’t understand anything. It’s better not to disturb your friends this time around as they may not have the correct answer themselves. Having said that, you can always discuss past years papers together and compare the answer and see your lecturer to mark it for you.

4. Make yourself a CHEAT SHEET covering all the major topics. This is to help you to jog your memory hours before the exam start, so that you can see the big picture.

5. SLEEP EARLY and wake up early. Have a good time management strategy. If you don’t sleep the night before, you are gonna be so tired during the exam, and your mind’s efficiency will be at its LOWEST, which is always the recipe for FAILURE. Avoid this at all cost.

6. Try not to discuss your answers with your friends after the exam. Maybe if they ask, then for politeness sake, just answer them, but don’t feel sorry for yourself if you find out that you screw up that part of the question. Then again, your marks depends on the lecturer whose marking it, not your friends’ review. So let it go and focus on what’s next.

7. Stay healthy and fit. Go for a jog, or a long walk, or a skip, or a dance, or aerobic class. You got the idea. The healthier you feel, the better your mental state during the exam is going to be. Flu symptoms? Aegrotat, aegrotat. =)

There you go. 6 powerful and effective tips to study and prepare yourself for the exam. I’m confident that you guys are going to do your best for your exam, and don’t forget to tawakkal to Allah after that.

For Muslim, amalkanlah Ayat Seribu Dinar di dalam doa. Banyak2kan lah berselawat ke atas Nabi Muhammad S.A.W. Mudah2-an beroleh keberkatan ilmu dan ketenangan hati ketika menjawab peperiksaan.

Gambatte! Chaiyuk2! Aja aja fighting! and whatever~

Good luck guys. Sijil Hijau for everyone. (I’m gonna upload the photos of Sijil Hijau recipient for 2nd Sem 2008 if I can get it from Puan Zaidah)

Thanks and all the best!
