The night before an exam is always the hardest. More than half the students are up until late at night, trying to cram every bit of knowledge they come across into their already saturated minds. The result is an exhausted and blank-minded student attempting to give an exam the next day. It is thus unsurprising that instead of performing at their best, they merely put in meagre efforts and accomplish less than their actual potential.
Here are some ways that students should evade to avoid comprising their exams before they actually give them:
- Students should start preparing for an imminent exam at least two weeks before it is due to occur. This will free them of any cramming they may have to do the night before the exam. Starting preparations well before the exam means the child will be in control and will have time to thoroughly understand every concept.
- Children should not stay up late; in truth, they should attempt to sleep earlier than their usual bedtime. The importance of proper sleep is paramount when it comes to successfully completing an exam.
- Students should avoid learning new topics last-minute. Knowledge learned at the end moment will most probably be lost by the time the pupil sits for the exam. This will also increase the chances of the student forgetting concepts he/she already knew well.
These three steps should be avoided by a child the night before an exam, and parents should do everything in their power to implement these learnings in their child’s life.
