Hey learners! If you are starting your online exam preparation, the first thing you need to do is stop asking your friends to take my online classes. We know there are times when you are exhausted and need some support from your mates but if your exams are approaching soon, you’ll have to say goodbye to this practice. There are many reasons for this but the most important is very prominent. What is it? It is that during the last few days before exams, especially online exams, teachers become more lenient. They answer all your queries politely and even tell some important questions for exams. If you are really looking forward to effective learning and yielding some excellent results, you cannot afford to miss out on these important lectures.
Also, it is true that teachers notice your efforts in the last few days and help you get out from exam anxieties. So, be a good student, pause all the fun, and for some time give all your attention to your online exams. We promise you’ll earn some good grades. Also, there are many tips you can work on to improve your learning. If you want to know them, continue reading the next part.
Make An Exam Outline
Planning is the key to a successful online examination. Even in physical examinations, if you don’t make a plan you’ll have a hard time during the preparation. For instance, If you have an English exam first, break all the parts and then start the division. First focus on the Grammar and Vocabulary part, next prepare for comprehensions and then compositions. Likewise, work for all the divisions and make different sections. Now allot each section some specific time and make sure to complete it by then. This practice will keep you on track and you won’t miss out on learning anything important.
Highlight Exam Dates
When you have your online examination schedule in your hands, pick up your paper, pen and highlighter and bold all your exam dates. What next do you have to do? Keep this paper in front on your study table. This will help you work proactively and as a result, you’ll start preparing days before your online exam. Otherwise, most of the students keep procrastinating and delay learning till the last date. We don’t want you to join that clan because they never achieve great grades.
Invest In Reliable Internet
You can relate to this point, right? We know that because believe us most of you students have the same problem. You all start panicking when out of nowhere your connection drops and boom! You have no way out. Therefore, to all the students who are preparing for their online exams, the very basic yet essential suggestion we give them is to invest in some reliable internet. This will save you from unexpected network dysfunction, which can be a threat to your online examination.
Check Your Equipment
After your internet, please check the technological gear you are using for your online examination. If you can, get yourself a good laptop or desktop computer and appear for your exam using them. However, if you cannot, don’t shy away to borrow any one of them from your friend but of course only then when they don’t have an examination the same day. If your equipment is not adequate enough, it will give you a tough phase and you’ll definitely miss your exam time. Therefore, it is good to check them at least two days before your exam.
Find A Noise-free Spot
You cannot even take your online classes in a room full of noises and sounds, so how can you expect to take your online exam in the same room? You cannot, right? Find a silent spot in your house with zero chatter sounds or head out to a quiet café. You can also choose to go to a nearby library or a friend’s house. However, silence is the only condition.
Practice Time Management
One of the biggest disadvantages of online exams is the punctuality of time. Unlike your teacher who you convince to give you some extra time, you cannot do the same in the online examination. Once the time is over, your test will disappear no matter how much of it was still left. Therefore, don’t just set your mind at rest. Instead, work on your time management and start preparing beforehand. Look out for the allotted time and check how much of it you can give to each question. This practice will help you complete your paper timely.
Review The Exam Guidelines
Many institutes send the guidelines a few hours before the online examination. If your school does the same, don’t ignore them. Pay good heed to those instructions and see what preparations you need to make and what pointers you have to remember. They can be about anything from time distribution to marks allocation. Don’t ignore them.
Don’t Forget To Save A Copy Of Your Answers
Now, this tip is for the time when you are giving your online exam. You never know when an emergency can hit your doors, so always be prepared for it. When solving the questions, write your answers on a word document and then copy-paste them into your exam sheet. This will save you from technical glitches that can wipe out all your answers.
I hope now you won’t ask any of your mates to take my online classes. The results can be unfavorable. Watch on the clock, keep your eyes open and check on your tech devices. Install all the software you need at least 24 hours before your paper. Also, don’t forget to study, we don’t think we need to tell you how advantageous it is or do we?
