Useful tips for students appearing in exam
Exams are a form of assessment where you are required to complete a particular academic task or tasks in a limited time, often in a particular place and without assistance from other people and resources. The purpose of exams may vary according to the course, program and type of exam.
Exams are set to gauge students’ knowledge and understanding of the course that may not be available through other forms of assessment. Exams can test your
- ability to recall and apply theory
- knowledge of the content area
- critical thinking and problem solving skills
- communication skills
- ability to work alone and under pressure
- the authenticity of your work
Before The Exam: Long-Term Planning
Your course syllabus provides the information you need about the assessment component of each course. Check it for the exam format and any details of exam content. Exam preparation should be part of your overall planning for each semester. At the startof each semester it is important to map the assessment tasks in every course, including exams, so that you know what is expected.
You should begin your exam preparation from the first week of lectures. Your lecture notes will be the basis for ongoing learning and then exam revision. Each week take time to check over current topics as well as review previous work.
Useful strategies include:
- identifying the most important issues in each theme from the course outline, lecture and tutorials, past exam papers
- developing a list of likely questions on each topic
- developing question analysis skills
- talking through the questions and topics with other students
Before The Exam: Final Weeks
The last weeks before the exam can be used to fine tune your understanding of the topics and concepts. Develop an overview of your course by reducing your notes to a summarized version.
Nearer to the exam you will need to:
- allocate more time to revision
- write practice answers keeping to the time that will be allowed in the exam
- confirm the practical details: date, location, starting time, overall length, number and type of questions, likely allocation of marks, exam weighting
- check with a friend and subject teacher that your writing under exam conditions is clear and legible
- rearrange work or family commitments that might affect your exam performance
