THE FINAL REVISIONS: How do you go about it?
The moment for which you are preparing is almost here. Your exam is already counted in terms of “J-J-“. It’s a bit of a mess between stress and fear!
Don’t panic, these are normal sensations which should neither confuse you nor make you doubt.
Now is the time to stay focused and start revising: Some people keep putting off the time to get started; others just at the sight of the panoply of courses that await them become discouraged and throw down their arms; and then there are those who read all the same but on the fly in order to get rid of it and ease the conscience.
This is not the right way, you need a strategy.
• First, update your lessons and exercises, fill in the blanks and missing ones. Do not leave anything to chance.
• Once your courses are up-to-date, make reading sheets in the form of summaries, take into account the essential points of the courses, exercises, diagrams, drawings and their captions.
• Do not hesitate to ask for help from your classmates and from the websites in completing your sheets. It is important to make index cards for all your lessons because this will help you to be better organized and tidy both within your workspace and in your ideas. In addition, during the production of these sheets, certain concepts will remain engraved and will not escape you.
After the card design stage, you need to plan for the revisions.
• Take stock of the number of lessons to review and the time allotted for it; This will help you realize how much pressure is on you, but also when to worry.
Constantly carry out such a recap so that you know if you are progressing or not.
• When revising, operate chronologically; That is, from the oldest to the most recent courses as the chapters follow one another.
• Do not go forward with gaps; Get help if you need it.
• Choose the revision hours carefully. For materials that require a lot of retention, put them in the early morning when you are sufficiently rested and ready.
• Alternate subjects: For example, do not reserve an entire day for one subject; make a mixture of materials each in its time and for a determined period.
• Set goals for yourself at the end of each chapter.
• Review the exercises that were corrected with your teacher and those of the old test subjects previously covered.
• Watch out for overwork and therefore get enough rest. Set aside time for some hobbies.
• Choose a quiet and conducive place to study, disconnect from your devices and problems during, and take breaks from time to time.
Once you have the correct method, you are prepared for the exam.
The day before, relax, don’t get confused, be confident and bring the success back to us.
Good luck to you future winners!
