Want to be an A* student?


There is no short cut to success; this is the first thing you should remember. For this reason, you have to study well first of all, but the preparations are different for different types of exams.

STEP 1: Have confidence in your abilities; students who do not believe in their intellectual abilities develop fear before an exam, even when they are fully prepared for the exams. This will cause them to fail because they would be too busy being scared than writing the right answers .Hence they make silly mistakes. You have to be confident and it is the most essential power you should have for attaining victory.

STEP 2: Reading timetable; you should have a good reading timetable. Subjects that prove to be more difficult should be allocated more time

STEP 3: Conducive reading environment; it is advised that you read in an environment favourable to you and not the environment favourable to your friends. Do not be too comfortable but try to be relaxed. That way, you do not sleep off and you assimilate properly.

STEP 4: Plan your time properly; at this point in your life, you should know what works best for you. Is it reading late at night? Or very early in the morning? Or after a nap? Stick to the time that works best for

STEP 5: always ask questions when you are not clear in class and while reading, look for students that know it better than you. Do and ask for their help, it won’t hurt.

STEP 6: making of notes from your own understanding is advised. That way, you would be able to see things you have left out .Also ensure you revise past questions and previous tests or exams given, to see where you ought to put in more work.

STEP 7: while in the exam hall, try to be quiet and recall everything you have read. When you receive the question papers, take time to review and understand the questions, think and be calm do not be over excited, if it appears to be simple. Answer questions you know best first, then go back to the ones that seem difficult and tackle them.

STEP 8: Having played your own part, don’t forget the God factor. Pray continually to Him for strength and He will surely come to your aid.
