Do you think you know how to pass exams and reach your true potential exam success? From the experiences of marking thousands of exam papers, and sitting rather more than I care to remember, I’ve realized that few people really know how to pass exams and achieve the degree of exam success of which they are capable. I’ve seen plenty of students make all the same mistakes I did, and invent quite a few that never occurred to me!Mistakes that are quite avoidable if you know about them in advance and prepare yourself well.
It sometimes seems as though people are expected, as if by some magic, to know just how to approach revision and exam techniques. They are taught their subjects: mathematics, English, history, science or whatever, but not when to revise, how to revise, how to prepare for exams or what techniques to use in exams 200-301 . Often students are given few exam tips or guidelines for achieving exam success. Work hard and you’ll get there simply doesn’t cut it! Work hard at doing what?
And yet exams influence so much of our lives, and so much importance is placed on them! Exams pervade our lives: at school, college or university. At work, and sometimes even in our hobbies and pass-times! Exam success can be like a magic potion for getting into college or university, or luring employers into taking you on, or giving you a promotion.That anything as important as exams should be left to chance is amazing, and certainly not a good idea! Do not leave your future to chance: learn what to do.
As an experienced author, teacher and examiner I can give you help in learning how to achieve exam success. I’ve been through a ton of exams myself, at school, university, through the Open University and also through other distance learning courses. My last two results were both distinctions, but at school I had little clue of how I ought to be revising, or approaching my exams!
