Strategy is a huge part in tackling tests and examinations and tests. Get the strategy right and your prospects of success are so much better.
All too often professors and lecturers don’t spend time on strategy. So lets see what we can do about that. Some of this is simple obvious stuff.
Use the paper provided.
Now we all want to save Johnny Polar Bear and the planet. But a student will be forgiven for using a bit more paper.
So often we see students write an answer across a page without a single space or new paragraph. It is an absolute nightmare for the examiner.
Students should observe the following rules in exams.
- Try not to write more than one sentence for each point you write.
- Never write sentences of more than two lines.
- Leave a line between each sentence
