December is an important month for the schools as it not only has Christmas programmes but also the half-yearly exams. The second week of December has just begun. In most states, the exams are starting from tomorrow and in some others, it may commence this week. It is that time of the year to test the attentiveness of the students. For those who have not, an opportunity to make it to the other half of the year successfully.
What does it take to be a performing student? How can you ace the exams like a cakewalk? Here are some of the valuable half yearly exam preparation tips for you to follow as they are already knocking the door.
Contrary to the popular adage to stay hydrated, it is a season to drink just enough water. December being the coldest month of the year, it is wiser to reduce your water content so that you wont take frequent breaks from your study session.
Usually, 8 hours of sleep is advisable every day. But sleeping a full 8 hours might get you into a habit of not being able to cope up when you want to get some extra study time. So make your minimum sleep time 6-7 hours a day. If you need to stretch a little longer, its okay. You can return from exam and have a little sleep anyway to start afresh with your new session.
Last minute preparation requires some quick studying skills. Mark all the important points with highlighters. Importantly, don't overdo the marking because that will not make any difference after all. You could even take a quick look at the book before entering the exam hall if you are habituated to this.
Take a look at your stationery items once and add on if you need anything. Do not keep refil in your pencil pouches as you might lose it in case the pouches are not allowed inside the exam hall. Keep ready your eraser, sharpner, pen, pencil, scale, geometry box, calculator, graph, logarithm books and any other desiderata.
Keep calm anyway because your best will be the outcome when you focus your energy on your strengths than weakness. All the best!
