How to Prepare for Exams before One Month

The tensions can be high at this point; however, one can adopt an approach to calm the nerves and ensure success in their exams. This is the period where your learning rate is the highest, when you are actually tested to apply what you’ve learned so far – and more importantly – the opportunity to identify and fill the gaps in your knowledge, just in time for the exams.

Take a deep breath, and check out the below tips on getting through the next few weeks of studying.

Tips for Surviving the Last Month of Exam Study:

1. Create a Study Calender.

For each day write down the subject that you plan to spend time studying. If you are sitting more than one exam, take into account which exams require more in depth knowledge; these should show up on your study calendar more frequently. Stick to the calendar, an hour a day might not seem like much but it will really be useful. In designing your study calendar, try not to study for too long on something you find difficult, you will become stressed and most likely forget what you learnt an hour ago.

When planning your schedule, consider both how much time you should spend on each subject and how many hours each day you need to finish all of your outlining, practice testing, reading, and reviewing for each subject. Prioritize the subjects, and schedule your time appropriately.

2. Figure out Your Study Methods.

Study methods include using colours, pictures and brainstorm or mind map pages. Some people learn and remember things better if they’re in certain colours whereas other people may remember diagrams and pictures more easily. Use the method that works for you; as long as it’s effective. It’s no use reading lots of text if your study method is diagrams. Remember, everyone has different methods to study, what works for your best friend may not work for you.

3. Understand the Syllabus.

It’s not enough to simply memorize the material that you have covered in lectures as there is the possibility that exam questions will not be asked in a straightforward manner and your brain may be too saturated from all the information you memorize. As such, it’s important to understand the material so that you can answer the question no matter which angle the examiner asks the question from. Also, understanding the material helps you to establish links between topics within the exam. Therefore, both studying and answering questions will be much easier, as the volume you memorize would be less.

4. Take Breaks to Relax.

You can’t study 24 hours a day – you need to take a step back and relax so that you avoid burning out. After studying for a while, reward yourself by going on a walk to clear your mind or chatting with friends. Try not to feel guilty about this – you need some time to have fun and it’s better to revise when you are feeling relaxed after a break than to exhaust yourself studying all day. After a break, when you resume studying, your mind is more likely to absorb more as it is fresh.

5. But don’t Relax too Much.

It’s important to integrate breaks into your study routine, but you also need to get serious and commit to studying. Now is not the time for beach house getaways and long camping weekends. In a month, your studying will be over, and you can head out on your bar trip glory. For now, stick with your schedule, make steady progress and prepare yourself the best you can for the exam.

6. Keep a Healthy Diet Throughout.

Studying for exams (especially close to the exam date) can sometimes cause us to neglect our nutrition as we try to maximize our study time. However, it is quite important to maintain a healthy lifestyle as this keeps the brain healthy which would result in more effective studying. Keeping a healthy diet should not be complex, as it could just entail a simple walk or jog for 20-30 minutes and having proper meals daily.
