Examinations always bring anxiety and stress for the students, whether they are brilliant, average, or above-average.
No matter how hard you have worked throughout the academic session, a few days before the finals are always nerve-racking. The struggle to revise the whole course you have spent a year studying is real. Even some intelligent students get panicked during revision.
Here are some useful tips for the students for their exam revision.
- Begin revising it early morning:
It is rightly said, “Early bird catches the worm.” A person possesses the highest amount of energy during morning hours what may help in learning faster. The chances of success for students studying early in the morning are higher than students studying late at night.
- Don’t memorize, learn the concept:
It is quite a common practice students follow. They try to cram the course content instead of understanding the concept. If they focus on the concepts rather than just memorizing them, they are likely to spend less time in exam revision.
- Use different resources:
Don’t rely just on your notes and handouts. Try searching for a particular topic in your course on the internet and reference books as well. That will help you in gaining extensive knowledge and understanding.
- Teach what you have learned to a peer/ sibling:
Teaching what you have learned is the key to perfect exam revision. When you teach someone, your concepts become clear and strong. Also, this will help you in highlighting your flaws.
- Relax and Stay positive:
One of the things during exam revision is to calm down your nerves and stay positive. That will help your brain function properly.

- Stay healthy:
Maintaining a perfect diet plan during exams is also important. That will keep you active and healthy, which will eventually lead to an active brain.
- Take breaks:
Some students think that taking intervals during the exam revision will waste their time and, they prefer to study continuously without taking any break. One must take short intervals in between to aid better cognitive functioning.
You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.
