If exams were a living being, every student would say, “Dear Exam, please be nice to me.” The word exam is scarier than nightmarish ghosts and very few schools give adequate importance to the actual knowledge imparted. Marks that are mere numbers have been deciding the future of students since ages. It can be even more daunting for teenagers in the prime of their education. This is why exams have the superpower of frightening the school kids of all age groups more so with life changing classes of 9th & 10th standard.

#1 Be a good listener
People always insist on being attentive in class. Being a good listener completes half the task for your exams. Listening to the class helps you to grasp the concept and reproduce it during tests and exams effortlessly. There are also a few mind games to increase one’s attention span to more than a gold fish’s! Playing interesting mind games and solving puzzles like SUDOKU, Crosswords can help increase focus and concentration skills.
#2 Befriend school books
You cannot expect students to score more just by paying attention in class. It is only the foundation for learning. He/She should also learn the lessons up-to-date. Let the books not be your best friend only during the previous days of the exam. Make it a habit to read or skim through the content taught at school at least once in a week if not everyday. Spend one hour daily and see the astounding results. Concepts and bookish knowledge should be pondered upon deeply to understand the bigger picture of understanding and application in real life.
#3 Do not hate homework!
Writing once equals learning ten times. Inculcate the habit of solving homework on your own instead of copying them at the last minute at school just before submission. Do it yourself with utmost concentration and do not see it as a burden. Rewriting a poem for homework in English will make you remember it during the exam. Working on more grammar exercises not only helps in the exams but also improves one’s communication. Homework that involves solving problems in Math will help you do the calculation quick and efficiently during the tests. Understand the question well rather than being worried about the answers or the deadlines, is the moto.
#4 Have an exam guide
