Exam Tips Ready for Exams

考试即将来临,你准备好了吗?

 The national examinations and the end-of-year examinations are drawing near, are you ready?

 即将毕业的学生,你们将要应付的是你们一生中,最重要的考试。其他同学,你们将要应付的是年终考试。

I believe that for most of you students out there, the end-of-year examinations is the most important examination of the entire year for you, whereas for the graduating cohort, national examination is the most important exam of your life.

 不过别怕,有我在呢! 让我来为大家分享一些考试经验以及如何应付考试。

In a flash, we’re nearing the end of the year, and you are nearing your examinations. I’m sure this brings about lots of stress. Not to worry though. I’m here to share my experience!

Hope this helps you in the preparation of exams and tackling of stress!  

Step 1: Be informed of the topics tested

如果你们像我一样,拿到题目看一眼后就丢在一旁,那这就错了。

I remember back in secondary school, whenever I receive the topics tested for the exams, I would take a quick glance and throw it aside. However, it’s the wrong move!

这是我在准备考O水准时学到的一个方法。你们知道吗?其实,你们可以上 SEAB 的网站查询各个科目所会出的范围

I came to know of this method while preparing for my O’levels. Did you know that you can actually visit the SEAB website to read about your respective syllabuses for your examinations?

Doing this will allow you to understand what is expected of you when you take the exams and not just go in with no understanding of what is going to be tested. I will leave the link to the website below!

我会在以下附上链接。

Step 2 : Alternate between different subjects

After understanding the topics that will be tested, you can now start studying.

While it is good to be focused, it is good to have a change between subjects like english and mathematics.

For instance, instead of practicing mathematics for 3hours straight and continuing on with chemistry for another 2hours, try changing the subject after mathematics to something like mother tongue, or english. This will allow different parts of your brain to rest.

读书时,不要花一整天的时间只读一种科目。例如:一个小时读英文,后个小时练数学。这样做的目的是让大脑的不同部分休息,避免你太累。

Do not rely on memory. Stress in an exam may cause you to be unable to recall certain key points that you have memorised. Instead, take your time to understand what you are learning. Use simple technics like creating acronyms to remember key points! That way, you’ll feel ready for exams!

哦!千万别读死书,不要死背。当我们在考试环境时,我们常常会受到压力的影响,导致我们无法回忆学过的东西

Step 3: Create notes using diagrams

After you study the textbook, you would most likely want to write notes. In my experience, writing notes seemed more like copying the textbook word for word until I found this method I used for my O’levels.

By drawing a flow chart or a diagram of some sort, you are able to link different parts of the subject together. Remember, a textbook is sort of like a big flow chart. Every new chapter you reach links back somehow to a chapter that you’ve studied before.

我建议在做笔记时,你们可以尝试用流程图来复习。课本就像一个超大的流程图。你们所读过的,都会一一连在一起,在考试中也会考你们。

Of course, this method is not limited to flow charts only. You can choose to use different pictures to help you remember certain important points. When you want to get ready for exams, simply go through the visual notes for quick revision.

当然,你们也可以选择不用流程图,反而用图案来帮助你们记起一些要点。

Step 4: Daily Recaps & Revision

Now that you have done your studying for the day, look back at what you have done for the day.

Recap on the important points of your various subjects. Simply writing notes and not looking back at it may not necessarily mean you have absorbed what you have written.

当你做完笔记后,回忆一下你当天做了什么,读了什么。
各个科目的要点你掌握到了吗?如果考试出这样的题,你会答吗?

Recapping is key.

This is one of the more important steps after studying. It allows you to ensure that you are able to answer any type of questions regarding the chapter that you have just studied.

Step 5: The most important step. Resting.

I know, I know.

Some of you are thinking, shouldn’t I be studying? Burning the midnight oil? Exams are more important!

Yes, you may be right, exams are important. But, we are humans, not machines. Even machines have to charge.

我们是人,不是机器。不可能二十四小时都在读书,身体支撑不住的。该休息时,还是要休息。

Studies have shown that people who do get sufficient amounts of sleep per day are more effective in completing tasks compared to people who are sleep deprived.

Make sure that you have your eight hours of sleep every night, and drink plenty of water to prevent yourself from falling sick. Stay healthy and feel ready for exams!

尽量早睡早起,喝多一点水。这样以来你的抵抗力就不会那么弱。

But I’m still stressed! What do I do?

It is inevitable that you will face some stress during the examination period. Instead of taking that stress negatively, use it in a positive way. Use this stress to charge forward and aim high. Motivate yourself!

当你觉得很有压力时,告诉自己:可以的,没问题,这一切的努力都是为了拿到最好的分数。

When you feel overwhelmed by stress, don’t be afraid to relax. Take some time off, eat your favourite food, engage in your hobby. These can help you to take some load off and even improve your efficiency.

多做些运动,吃你喜欢吃的食物、甜品,做你喜欢做的事。这些活动能帮你放松,让你更有活力。

All the best! 加油!
