It’s normal for students to feel a little bit of stress as their exams get closer. But when it’s left unchecked, this stress can adversely affect a student’s exam performance.
Here are a few tips that can help ensure good exam performance when following a British curriculum online:
1. Using the Right Resources
Conventional homeschooling—which involves studying with a parent or a private tutor—comes with many challenges and may not be helpful for every student. Students who aren’t comfortable with in-person classes can benefit from enrolling in an online British international school. This will provide them with the proper guidance and resources for their studies.
2. Creating a Plan
Only a small percentage of students show similar proficiency in all subjects. Most students are good at some subjects and not-so-good at others. Succeeding in exams requires students to figure out their weaknesses to put in the right amount of effort. It can be helpful to make a daily study and revision schedule a few months before the exams.
3. Understanding the Exam
Students who pass their exams with flying colours spend time not just on understanding the course material but also on understanding the exam. Knowing what to expect from an exam can decrease any nervousness a student might be feeling. Getting to know the exam structure and different kinds of questions is well worth it.
4. Practice Makes Perfect
Students also do well in exams if they’ve been practising beforehand. Practising for an exam isn’t just about solving questions or improving one’s time management. Students can mentally prepare themselves by recreating the exam conditions as accurately as possible while they practice. This can make them more comfortable on the day of the actual exam.
5. Putting Health First
A lot of students believe that all-nighters can help them do better in exams. On the contrary, messing up one’s sleep schedule can have dire effects on physical and mental health and academic performance. When A-Levels exams are drawing closer, it’s more important than ever to prioritise one’s health. Consuming a balanced diet, getting plenty of sleep, and taking time out to exercise is essential to success in exams as thorough revision.
