STUDY TIP #4 – What special practices or rituals do you follow before an exam?Otis Rodgers December 28, 2019 0 COMMENTS
So one thing, I dont want to be asked questions that will confuse me or questions that will make me doubt everything that I studied So I avoid having conversations and they know, like I am always on my earphones just before the exam, playing loud music more especially the music I was playing while I was studying So my friends think I am really weird for doing this So, on test or exam days I skip lunch So I would eat a breakfast and just fast for the lunch period What I think this does is it gives me that time to study and also it doesn’t impair my ability to think because my blood is not going to my digestive organs And one more thing is I drink 6 sips of water before every test and exam I definitely seen scientific evidence to prove that drinking water can improve performance I grew up in a christian family, so am a christian and I pray a lot. before the exams, yeah I pray a lot And I close my eyes for 5 minutes just meditating through what I read I always make sure to speak with my mom before I go into my exam We talk about being prepared and about positivity that I can take with me into the exam And as soon as I am done I will call her or she will call me and then we will talk about how it went and reflect I do try to get a good nights sleep if I can I try not to leave everything to last minute like I used to do at school I try to give myself some time and then I also make sure I have a good cup of coffee. Okay, so this is my lucky little bracelet so I wear this for every test I feel very incomplete without it. so that’s my little go to Instead of doing something fun, I would go over my work, again Just before I write which doesn’t work for everyone, but it works for me I think you need as a an individual, you need to develop your own learning methods and not necessarily follow what someone else is doing Because what works for me won’t wont necessarily work for someone else.
