How to Take a Test in an Effective Way

Calm Your Nerves Before Starting

One thing that can get in the way of you taking your tests in an effective manner is being too nervous. The nerves can cause you to do mistakes you wouldn't make otherwise. To calm down, you first need to prepare for your tests well. Study hard and days in advance. During the test, you can take deep breaths in to control your nerves a bit. It's also crucial that you realize that you're capable to do well, and that making mistakes is part of the learning process.

Write Your Name on the Test

This next tip is really easy, and as such, it's really easy to forget: write your name on the test. Doing it the moment you receive your test from the teacher will guarantee you won't forget to do it. The consequences of not writing your name can vary. For example, you may lose some points because of it. In other cases, the test could get misplaced, and your chances of retrieving it (along with your score) can be slim.

Read the Test From Top to Bottom

Something to consider is that you should read the test from top to bottom (instructions, questions, possible answers, and all) before you begin answering it. This will guarantee that you understand what's being asked of you, which can lower the amount of mistakes you make greatly. If upon your review of the test, there was something you didn't understand, let your teacher know at once.

Answer Properly

Of course, you don't want to confuse the teacher and write down answers that are incoherent or unreadable, since this may affect your grade. That's why, it's important that you care how you answer. This means answering as instructing, writing in legible penmanship, and forming complete ideas.

Start Out Easy

One tip that can save you a lot of time is to start your test by answering the easiest questions. This will guarantee that you will get that low hanging fruit. Moreover, it will ensure that you will have more time to focus on the more complicated questions. Put a mark on the questions you're skipping for now, so you don't forget to go back to answer them later on.

Don't Cheat

Cheating is a resource some students use, usually when don't feel prepared to answer the test on their own. If you have a challenging time with one of the subjects, cheating may be a tempting way to solve it. However, when you cheat, you risk getting caught and failing the test completely. Not only that, but you also lose a chance to learn.

Go Over Your Test

Finally, if you have any time left after you're done with the test, you should spend it going over the work you just did. While you do, it's highly recommended that you actively look for mistakes you may have made and that you can correct in the time you have left. Likewise, be sure to notice and work on any questions left unanswered.
