WIth mid terms or semester exams coming our way, no one has really taken a right approach to preparing for exams. Who needs one when we all know the right time to study for exams is the day before it or is it?

Life, as it is, gives a lot of stress. So let us not stress during the exams and follow some simple steps to take up the challenge of knowledge testing a bit smooth.

mark your upcoming exams

On a piece of paper, write out which exams you have to take, leaving a few lines between each exam. Use different coloured pens for each exam for the sake of clarity or difficulty level.

Divide each exam into study units

Study units can either be in the form of chapters or topics, as per your convenience. Divide your subject into different study units.

Write these study units down below your exam subjects and then assign each one a number according to difficulty, with 5 being the most difficult and 1 being the easiest. These rankings will come in handy when you are devising your study plan.

Divide your units by days

Next, write down how many days you have for each upcoming exam. Now divide the units you have per days.

For example, if there are six days until Mathematics exam and five units for the subject, this leaves one day for each unit, plus an extra day for overall review.

Chart your study plan on a calendar

Now it’s time to write down your study plan in a planner or calendar. Use your different colours to write down the date of each of your exams. Now work backwards from those dates, writing down the material that you’ll be studying each day. Leave a little room to balance your schedule, so that you’re not doing all of the hardest material on the first day
