It’s that time of year again. Preparing for your summer exams is a difficult time for many. This year, for third years especially, summer exams are more important than usual. This article, Advice for your Summer Exams, sets out to discuss how you can effectively prepare in the lead up to your exams, so you get the grades you deserve.

1. Know The Exam Layout

Ensure that you’re aware of the layout of the exam. This will help you to feel more comfortable on the day and help you to achieve better results.

If you’re unaware of the layout of the exam, then you need to find out. Most teachers create their own summer exams, so you can simply ask them if they haven’t told you yet.

2. Know What’s Coming Up

A mistake that many students make when preparing for summer exams, or any exam for that matter, is studying things that won’t come up on the paper.

With summer exams, most teachers will only examine you on content that you have covered in class. If you’re not sure of exactly what you’ve covered, ask your teacher and they’ll be happy to help you out.

3. Test Yourself

Testing yourself is the most important method in your study tool kit. It’s absolutely essential if you’re looking to do well in your exams.

You can implement this method into your study by using exam papers, flashcards, or question banks. When using exam papers, make sure to check the marking scheme after completing a question to ensure that you have answered it correctly.
