No matter what kind of exams you need to pass, you still feel the pressure of responsibility to pass it in the best way possible. It is also really unpleasant when you get a question you cannot find an answer to, especially if you know you have read this information not so long ago. The sense of duty makes you feel insecure and lowers your self-esteem. Passing the exam depends on a lot of factors including the level of your luckiness, and that is why getting ready to the exam is so draining. Of course, one cannot escape all the stressful situations, but if you follow simple planning rules, you will be able to avoid those you are in control of.
So, how does one get ready to the exam in two days?
Of course, the best way to be sure of passing your final without stressing out is studying during the semester. However, there is still a way to do it in the shortest time if you plan your studying accordingly.
Get ready to getting ready
Make sure you have had a good sleep the night before the preparation. Tell everyone, that you shouldn’t be distracted for a couple of days. Look through the materials you have and find the lacking ones. It is better to look through the list of questions and look up the information about everything you do not know yet, creating a little library of the information you should remember. This will keep you off the computer and the Web, and everybody knows that the Internet is both the best helper and the best time-killer.
Plan the time you have
For this step you will need to count the amount of hours you have to the exam, exclude the time for sleeping and getting to the school/college/university. Save a couple of hours for revising the passed material. After this you will need to divide the time you have into the number of questions. Having set the time frames, try to follow them, letting yourself rest for a couple of minutes every now and then. Have some snacks near in case you feel hungry.
Keep in mind that the time is limited
This is why you don’t want to go too deep into the questions. Your goal is to remember the most important information, the key points of each answer. Write them down in numbers, words or schemes, so you will be able to remember the answer only by looking at them. You can also start with the hardest questions, so in case you won’t finish by the time of the exam, you will be sure you can write at least a brief answer to each question.
This is the most important step, as all the materials you have looked through were only kept in your short-term memory, and you might find yourself not being able to remember the answer you knew so well the night before. Read through the key points you have written down and repeat them aloud.
