Studying Smart, Not Hard: Preparing For Exams

Freaking out about exams is a natural part of a student’s progression through school. Most students do not begin studying until the last minute, when they fall severely behind due to the lack of time. This won’t happen to you if you study smart, instead of studying hard and tiring yourself out even before the exams begin. Here are some tips to help you reach those B’s and A’s.
Get Help from a Tutor
We all need help in our lives and studies are no exception. If you find your classes boring or difficult to follow for some reason, chances are, you are not going to put much effort into studying it. Find a tutor who interests you and challenges you to do better. For instance, if the French teacher Dubai at school makes no sense, look for a tutor who can make the lessons fun for you. You will be motivated to study simply by being with them.
Attend Revision Classes
When exams are around the corner, tutors and teachers alike start revision classes for students to revive their memory about all the things they studied throughout the year. Try and attend these classes religiously; if you missed a few French lessons in school, then extra French classes are the perfect way to catch up. You will also be doing more exercises and work sheets in revision as you don’t need to repeat the entire lesson, meaning that you will be more familiar with the material by the end.
Teach Someone Something
Whether or not you are good at teaching is irrelevant; everyone has one subject they excel in, so grab someone who needs help in that subject and give them a few lessons. The more you teach out loud, the more it will be ingrained in your memory. Remember to revise your own notes before you teach them and don’t teach something you are not sure of or don’t know as that too, will remain etched in your memory forever
Take a Short Cut
Yes, you have to read all your notes at least once. So you have to start studying for the tests at least 1 month in advance. However, you don’t have to memorise every last letter you have written. All you need are short notes. Start making short notes of your bigger, more comprehensive, notes by writing out the topics and titles. Then, write a line or two to explain them. By the end you should be able to remember the whole explanation/note simply by looking at your short notes.
