As the school calendar ebbs to close the one thing on many students’ minds is always examinations. We cannot over emphasise the importance of examinations as it is so far the only form of evaluation that is recognised so one has to do their very best.

Education Times chose to look into how one can best prepare for this life changing moment. Yes exams are life changing for those who pass continue on the path of a bright future while those who fail find themselves having to come up with new plans and new energy to move forward.

Many times, revision is seen as the only way to prepare for exams yet there are many things one should look into as well. One should basically cover all gaps before the D-Day. For example, it tends to rain lately. Do you have an umbrella if you are a day scholar?

What about the psychological preparations? Do you know how important the exams are to you? Can you acknowledge their importance without losing your mind and being too nervous to function normally?

Do you have all the necessary scholastic materials? Do not borrow a calculator before the exam only to find out you are not able to use it when the exam has already started. Make sure you are familiar with whatever you will use during exams.

Similarly, go through some old examination papers so you can see how questions are framed. While at it, do not fall for con men who may lure you into indulging in examination malpractices.

Remember to stay healthy during this time and this may include sticking to your usual diet. You do not want to have a running stomach during exams. In short, leave no room for excuses.
