How to Take a Test in an Effective Way

  1. The first step is to relax. Being nervous can hinder your performance on the test, so try breathing exercises before you start, so you can answer the test with a calm mind.
  2. The first thing to do upon receiving your test is to write your name on it. This way, your test won't get misplaced, and you'll be able to get graded on it.
  3. It's also strongly suggested that you read your test from beginning to end before you start answering. Doing so will help you understand what's being asked of you. If something isn't clear, ask your teacher at once.
  4. Of course, you should make an effort to answer properly. This basically means following the instructions, writing with legible penmanship and coherent ideas.
  5. A good strategy to follow is to start easy. If you answer the easier questions first, you'll get those points and you'll have more time to focus on the more complex questions.
  6. A bad strategy to follow is that of cheating. Not only could you get caught and suffer the consequences, but you will also be missing out on a learning opportunity, so avoid cheating.
  7. Finally, remember to review your test once you're done answering it. As you go through it, focus on finding mistakes you could correct, ideas you could enhance, or questions you may have missed.
