How to plan your study during Exam..

There is no age limit for studying. A human being is always a student.

Sometime we study for our own experience or some time we gave exam to evaluate our knowledge.

Young or adults, all students give exam and learn step by step. But today students face lot of competition which leads to stress and peer pressure. But sometimes some students find their own way to remove stress and give healthy competition.

I will give you some tips here. For this, I will suggest 3 Ds for you.

  1. DECISION
  2. DETERMINATION
  3. DRAFTING (Planning)
  1. First step is to decide your aim. Decide which exam you want to appear and why you want to appear.
  2. Then determine factors related to the exam. Check your syllabus. Check if your exam has questions from reference books or general knowledge.
  3. Find out the approximate month and day your exam will be conducted and how many days are left for your exam. Accordingly you can planning your study time
  4. Decide on what study material has to purchase. Buy the one that will give enough knowledge on exam and help you learn faster. If you ignore a particular topic because you did not understand it you will not understand any other topic dependent on this topic .This will in turn lead to stress and study will consume more time. Hence make sure that you understand all concepts very well .
  5. Pen down your own notes in your own words. Then solve MCQs, objectives, questions (short/long) and estimate your understanding and how much extra work you have to put on this topic. Find out what topic you did not understand or read again the answers to your unsolved questions.
  6. Important part is make a time table to plan your study. Include everything that you have to do in a day(lunch ,dinner,travel and other activities). You must follow the time table 81% don’t postpone your today’s study to tomorrow or day after tomorrow. Soon it will start accumulating and you cause tension during exam time
  7. And most very important is your HEALTH. “Healthy mind dwells in healthy body”. You must take care of your health. When you study and giving exam you must eat healthy food and nutritious food like salad , soup, leafy vegetable etc. Avoid outdoor food and sleep for minimum of 6 hour in day. When you are healthy and fresh at the time of exam you will be able to perform your best.

Today buzz words are 3G and 4G . Technology is improving day by day. Use it when you study. We get lot of knowledge with just one click . The world has become technologically advanced and coming closer. It is no more necessary to go to a coaching center to give practice test. Today you can do it on Internet using apps like PREXAM. You can take tests at your convenient time and when you are prepared.

This is how you should plan your studies and follow it. So you don’t get stressed give exam with a healthy mind and with a smile.

How to Prepare for Exam

Preparing for an exam can be stressful and time consuming, but it doesn’t have to be. There’s no need to stress out or cram. By doing a couple simple things ahead of time, you can ensure that you are confident and ready for anything that comes up on the test.

There are lots of ways to study / prepare for examination. As it’s a 21st century there are lots of new techniques. As the generation changes the method of preparing for examination also changes.

1) Refer various books, study material, etc 

Start studying early In this you will first need to understand which topic or subject you’re going to prepare for. Purchase a book or a study material, you can also visit your nearest library.

Give yourself more than enough time to review the material that was covered in class. You might want to gauge how soon to start studying by how much material you need to review.

For instance, if you have to review material for an entire semester/ Government exams, you might want to start studying a few weeks prior.

Prexam preparation

Only you know how long it takes you to study, so you are the best judge of when to start studying and how to start studying.

If the class material is especially difficult for you. Start studying early. Give yourself enough time to truly grasp the material, practice it and then review it.

Get a full night’s sleep before the exam. Your brain needs time to subconsciously digest everything you’ve put into it, so start early so you don’t have to stay up all night.

Read through the entirety of your notes that will be on the exam. It will refresh your memory of the material and help you remember what you learned. It will also help to make you aware of all the information in your notes.

Get some good notes. Good notes can make all the difference when you’re studying.


Ask your teacher about the test material.

Look For Possibilities

If You Focus On Possibilities You’ll Have More Opportunities.

blog (2)

Eniac was one of the first computers to list – electronic circuits, which made for lightning fast calculations. At first, Thomas J. Watson, the former chairman of IBM, saw no use for it. He said,” I reached to Eniac the way some people probably reacted to the Wright brothers’ airplane. It didn’t move me at all…. I couldn’t see this gigantic, costly, unreliable device as a piece of business equipment.”

A few weeks later, he and his father wandered into a research office as IBM and saw engineer with a high – speed punch- card medicine hooked up to a black box. When asked what he was doing, he said, “Multiplying with radio tubes.” The machine was tabulating payroll at one tenth the time it took the standard punch card machine to do so. Watson recalls, “That impressed me as though somebody had hit me on the head with a hammer.” He said, Dad, we should put this thing on the market! Even if we only sell eight or ten, we’ll be able to advertise the fact that we have the world’s first commercial electronic calculator.”

That’s how IBM got into electronics. Within a year, they had electronic circuits that both multiplied and divided, and at that point, electronic circuits that both multiplied and divided, and at that point, electronic calculators become truly useful. Thousands of the IBM 604 were sold.

What wasn’t yet obvious to Thomas Watson was obvious to the engineer working In the research department. Always keep your eyes and ears open; you never know what you might discover. Look for the possibilities around you.

It’s important to have high self-esteem

Writer Goethe wrote: “The greatest evil that can be fall man is that he should come to think ill of himself.” Goethe accepted  this truth about human nature. We are not defeated because we lack talent or ability; it’s the lack of confidence that brings about our downfall.

It’s all about self-esteem: the way we feel about ourselves. To say things like “I am  wrong”, “I am incompetent”, or not being sure of oneself is a clear sign of poor self-esteem. When we feel good, we make extra efforts to gain knowledge or expertise and search for effective ways to handle given tasks. Feeling good keeps us buoyant and energetic and is conducive to a mental make-up that can find solutions to problems. We begin to look at problems as challenges and consequentially convert threats into opportunities.

People with poor self-esteem tend to shirk their responsibilities. They stick to set limits and never explore new frontiers, remaining happy inside their comfort zones. They also try to get the most with the least efforts and use short cuts, quick fixes or make cosmetic changes. They usually end up in the company of their own kind, that is, people with scarcity mentality and hidden agendas.

mix

There are opportunities in threats : It is an acknowledge fact that people with high self-esteem are more productive, caring, humble, courageous and assertive. They accept responsibility and act accordingly. They also turn adversity into opportunity. How else how could a deaf Beethoven have created such great musical symphonies? John Milton was blind but that did not prevent him writing beautiful poetry. And cricketer Bhagvat Chandrashekhar became the finest googly bowler in the world despite a polio-afflicted arm. Such people feel good about themselves and make the best use of opportunities. They don’t lament about their physical inadequacies and handicaps.
Look for virtues in others : Benjamin Franklin was tactless in his youth but was savvier in later life. Once when he was asked about the secret of his success, he said: “I will speak ill of no man… and speak all the good I know of everybody.”
One way of feeling good is to read good biographies and associating with positive people who are uplifting, upbeat, optimistic and adventurous. People with high self-esteem avoid conflicts and backbiting and focus on good and positive things. The words that you use can make or beak relationships; a negative comment or communication can damage your individual or professional reputation. Don’t allow your destiny to be controlled by others. Eleanor Roosevelt, wife of US president Franklin D. Roosevelt, once said: “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent”.

The quality of courage : 25 May 2001 was a historic day for mankind. Eric Weihenmayer  became the first blind man to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Weihenmayer, who lost his vision at the age 13, never let his blindness interface with his passion for mountaineering. He has shown such charm, resilience, passion, commitment and concern for other that it is difficult to find a better role model. In his book Touch the top of the world  — the story of his conquest of the highest peaks in the world — Weihenmayer showed the world that the barrier of blindness can be overcome if one has the will and courage to do it. According to Helen Keller: ” Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”

Courage is the qualities. Without this quality, all other qualities have no value. True courage has its origin in truth and ethical practices, at whose core lie universal principles. It can be derived from the inner self-only. When every other light goes out, it is this inner light that shows us the path. It enlightens us, and gives us strength, character and mental toughness. Most of life’s battles are won first at the mental level; physical victory is then a mere formality.

Cultivate optimism and Hope : People with high self-esteem have vast reserves of optimism. Kentucky Fried Chicken is one of the most well-know and successful fast food chain in the world. It wasn’t  always so. Colonel Sanders, founder of KFC, had to drive from door to door, town to town, to sell his first pieces of chicken. The only response he got initially was ‘NO’ – more than a thousand times. Now, can you imagine the faith, patience, persistence and perseverance required to withstand refusal more than a thousand time ? Sanders was a great optimist and firmly believed in himself and his product; he also had the courage to persevere.

Colonel Sanders’ Success Recipe:

  • Never quit.
  • Always believe in yourself.
  • Be patient.
  • Be positive.

The Power of a Positive Attitude – ASK formula.

There are three things that are essential for success – attitude, skills and knowledge. In other words, the ASK formula.

ASK1112222

ATTITUDE:

Attitude is nothing but a state of mind that directs our action in daily life. It is a kind of mental orientation. We are all products of our attitudes – whether negative or positive – and it is important to examine them from time to time discover their real impact on our lives.

SKILLS AND COMPETENCIES:

A skill can be described as an ability to do something or to apply a concept or idea; competence is the ability and willingness to do it. Skills and competencies are as importance as knowledge and are critical component of a composite leadership development.

KNOWLEDGE:

It’s a key element of success. The right kind of knowledge enables us to correctly identify facts, helping us to acquire a better understanding of the internal and external environments. Some people equate good education with good knowledge. The reality however is quite to the contrary. Good grades in examination do not guarantee high knowledge levels: degrees or grades that have been acquired through cramming, for instance, are of little value in real-life situations. The route to rule knowledge has to pass through the valleys and passes of great character, discipline, commitment and timely activation of dormant capacities, energies and intelligence.

A positive attitude is the first stepping stone to success

What distinguishes successful people from the rest of the pack is a positive attitude: a positive attitude leads to positive behavior and ultimate to success. This is important if we are to optimize our potential and capacities; in a vast majority of people these remain grossly under-utilized. A positive attitude is a potent force; a negative attitude, on the other hand, prevents us from our full potential.

positiveattitude

Inventor Thomas Alva Edison made 10,000 attempts before he perfected the light bulb. Any other person would have quit the scene, but Edison refused to give up. Now people with a negative mindset might say that Edison failed 10,000 times before he succeeded. However, the fact is that Edison discovered 10,000 ways of not failing.

A positive attitude is also the first step towards tracking everyday problems – be it personal or professional. You see everything that happens around and within you through the filter of your attitudes. Since many events are beyond your control, you can neither choose what happens to you, nor guarantee success and happiness. But you can definitely choose how you feel about these happenings or how you react to them. A positive mindset allows you to have mental ability and the strength to be happier and take things in your stride. In today’s fast-changing environment, most people feel that it is not so easy to succeed and move ahead. As I have said earlier, it’s all about attitude. If you think you can win, the changes are that you will; if you feel that you can’t, you probably won’t.

A positive attitude always leads to:

  •  Higher productivity.

The poem by an unknown author below beautifully sums up people with high energies, confidence and a positive attitude.

There is nothing to fear – you’re as good as the best,

As strong as the mightiest, too

You can win in every battle or test;

For there’s no one just like you

There’s only one you in the world today;

So nobody else, you see,

Can do your work in as fine a way,

You’re the only you there’ll be!

So face the world, and all life is yours,

To conquer and love and live;

And you’ll find the happiness that endures

In just the measure you give;

There’s nothing too good for you to possess,

Nor heights where you cannot go;

Your power is more that belief or guess,

It is something you have to know

There is nothing to fear – you can and you will

For you are the invincible you,

Set your foot on the highest hill,

There’s nothing you cannot do

People with a positive attitude are energetic and take initiative. They don’t sit back for want of opportunities. They act and make the opportunities if they don’t find one.
