A student can do several different things to prepare well for their exams. We understand that no two students are the same, which is why no two exam preparation tips will work the same for you.

Lack of concentration, lack no planning, lousy learning habits, punctuality problems, etc., are some problems that most students face while preparing for exams.

How do you solve these issues?

i) Setting aside enough time to study
ii) Organizing your study space well
iii) Start preparing notes
iv) Practice last exam papers
v) Prefer group studies

i) Setting aside enough time to study

The first thing a student needs to do when preparing for an exam is set aside enough time to study in a day. We have seen some students who study for just a few hours and some who study for the entire day and yet are not getting good results. Both these study schedules are bad. You must divide your day between studying, resting, and having fun. According to the studies, if followed daily, 3 to 6 hours of studying is more than enough. So, if you are preparing for an exam, make sure that you have a set schedule for studying.

ii) Organizing your study space well

Hunting for a pen, pencil, notebook, book, or any kind of stationary or other stuff in the middle of your studying session can be distracting. This is where this tip will come in handy. Before you sit to study, make sure that your study space is well-organized and that you have everything that you might need close by. In addition to that, you need to make sure that the space has enough light and the chair is comfortable enough to spend hours. So, make sure that your study space is bright and attractive to keep you hooked.

iii) Start preparing notes

When preparing for the exams, we highly recommend you consider preparing notes. When you start writing and penning down the points you read, you start memorizing it. Do not forget to add the flow charts and diagrams when preparing notes. This will make it easier for you to go back and revise what you have learned. Sounds exciting? Right?

iv) Practice last exam papers

While preparing for exams, every student should practice a few old exam papers. This will help boost your confidence and understand the format and formulation of the questions. Also, by practicing the old exam papers, you can manage your speed of attempting the exam.

v) Prefer group studies

Another very effective way of studying that many students with concentration problems have found helpful is to prefer group studies. In group studies, you can finish tasks quickly while getting opinions & help from other students.


These practical tips can help every student prepare well for their exams. So, if you are a student looking for some exam preparation tips, this piece of article is for you. We hope these exam preparation tips take you to the best results you deserve.
