Test Taking Strategies

Do your best on all of your exams this school year with these simple test taking strategies.

Be Prepared for the Exam Day

Preparation for an exam should start at least a couple weeks in advance. Ensure that you don't forget about an important exam by writing down the date of it as soon as you know it. Once you know when your test is, create a study schedule that will allow you to spread out your studying and avoid cramming the night before. It's important that you get plenty of rest the night before an exam. Rest along with a healthy breakfast will help keep you focused during the test. Avoid added stress by arriving at your exam early and with the necessary materials.

Strategies to Use While Taking a Test

Once the test has been handed out, start by reading all of the instructions carefully. If there is something you don't understand, ask questions. Before answering any problems, be sure to thoroughly read the question and all of the answer choices. Answer the easiest questions first and leave the hard ones for last. This will help you manage your time more effectively. If you start to feel panicked, stop what you're doing and take some deep breaths until you're calm. Remember to be confident in your studying and stay positive as you work your way through the test. Don't forget to review your answers once you're finished.

Understand Your Mistakes

When you get your exam back, understanding why you got certain questions wrong is more important that just the grade you received. If you don't understand why a question is wrong, ask the teacher for clarification. The corrections can let you know what areas you need to work more on and which areas are your strongest. Identifying this information can help you better prepare for future exams.
