Preparing for entrance exams? Here are 15 tips to help you study

Create a study plan, stay organised, and try to maintain a balanced diet and exercise.

It’s the time of year when all students are focused on finals and entrance exams. We know how important this phase is so we prepared some tips on how you can prepare for exams and achieve your goals.

But before you start studying for the entrance exam, it is important that you define your goal. Which university do you want to get admission to, course of interest, public or private? If you have the answers to those questions, it is now time to study for the entrance exam.

15 tips for passing exams

According to the Sarkari Result website, below are 15 tips that can help you pass your exams with flying colours. You can also read my previous article on how to ace IB Economics exams.

Select subjects you should study and create a study plan: You must set realistic goals and deadlines. Make time for class, home study, exercise, as well as for rest.

Identify your study style: Create summaries, read and exercise. Balance your routine between activities that improve your learning.

Enjoy your time: Know the best time to study. Schedule all your activities according to when you pay more attention to your studies.

Stay up to date: All entrance exams require students to be up to date. Read newspapers, magazines, blogs.

Organise: Keeping your study material organised helps you stay calm. We suggest creating online notes, for example. Separate the material by folders and themes.

Training: Doing simulations for the entrance exam is a great initiative. You can create a quick quiz to test a small amount of material in a large mock. The advantage is that this will give you security and practice in answering questions during entrance exams.

Dedication: Studying all subjects in a single week will not be healthy. Studying for the entrance exam requires dedication. You will have to invest time in this. And in the end, you can focus on a review.

Write in your own words: Writing down what the teacher explains in class and summarising the book in your own words helps you stick to the content easily.

Study alone or go to class: If you are enrolled in a course, then go to 100 per cent of the classes, don’t miss them! Do all the proposed exercises. If you choose to study alone for the entrance exam, determine a routine, and remember the dedication. Look for materials that will help you. Create your study resources and stay focused.

Identify your difficulties: Don’t focus your studies on what you like best. Studying for the entrance exam requires you to put more effort into what you find most difficult. Prioritise subjects that you know need more technique and knowledge.

Explore new techniques of studying for the entrance exam: Think of new methods. For example, FlashCards to memorise information. Using quiz or online notes can be another way out.

Food and exercise: Try to maintain a balanced diet and exercise. The combination of the two will give you more energy to study for the entrance exam.

Understand and not memorise: Your memory is not infinite so trying to understand and assimilate concepts is better than memorising everything. Of course, at times you will have to memorise some information, but do it in an organised and conscious way.

Attention: Pay close attention to everything. In reading exercise statements, in a book, and in explanations from friends and teachers. This will save you from having to study the same thing more than once.

Study in Group: Often, studying for an entrance exam in a group can be very good! A colleague can help in the subject he/she has mastered.
