Exams: the horror story of every child who is ever enrolled in an educational institute! Be it a student of grade three or one who is just completing grade ten, the stress is ever-present. This is why a child should do everything to avoid letting the stress destroy exam results and strive to achieve the best using various paths.
After a student is done with going through the lessons, completing the exercises at the end of a book, and is just reviewing the notes one more time, he/she is often under the impression that after the review is the last stage before one actually goes to the give an exam. The truth, however, is that there is one more step that ensures a successful exam—practice exams.
Practice exam is the last step a child should complete before going to give the actual examination. It is the exam before the exam that actually counts. Through practice exams, students can find out the areas they are weak in, the areas that they can play to their strengths and the concepts they need to pay special attention to. Completing practice exams means that a child is cutting down on the risks of him/her failing or performing inadequately in the final exam.
If for an instance a child stands to gain 14/20 in an exam, by completing practice exams the expected result can go to as high as 19/20, or even full marks! They are the ideal way of perfecting an exam before even giving it.
