With O & N levels around the corner, some of you might be feeling very confident, some of you might be feeling very nervous, while some might be feeling overwhelmed and lost. No matter what you are feeling right now, time is of the essence and changes can still be made within these few weeks. Here are some last-minute exam tips to help you solidify your knowledge within these few weeks.
2. UTILIZE MEMORY TECHNIQUES
Most schools and teachers do not focus on this, but it is an essential tool for students to get their distinctions. We all know that we must memorize a huge amount of content for many subjects, and it does not help that the exams are back to back from each other.
Furthermore, during an exam, you will have no textbook or notes to refer too. Many students face the problem of being unable to recall the information or confuse the information with something else. This is when memory techniques become super useful. They can condense the huge amount of information in a way that is easy to remember when studying and to recap during the exam.
3. PREPARE SUMMARISED NOTES & TOPICAL CHEAT-SHEETS
If you experienced the frustrating feeling of being unable to remember this specific formula or working, or concept no matter how hard you tried, it might be useful to prepare last-minute cheat sheets.
4. TEN YEARS SERIES
Do the ten years series questions faithfully and you will know what to expect for your O Levels. Continuously drill down
5. LEGENDARY BLANK PIECE OF PAPER
Right after you are finished studying a topic, take a blank piece of A4 paper, write ALL you know about that topic. This method will immediately allow you to know your familiarity with the topic, and you should refer to your notes for re-cap. It is a painful and tedious process to regurgitate and reproduce everything. But it works. During examinations, you have no textbooks nor notes to refer to. This method simulates actual examination conditions and forces you to rack your brains.
