Do you dread exams? Be honest. No, no, no…be honest. Was your last exam akin to falling off a roller-skate? Does the mention of ‘exam’ give you goose bodies? Umh? Does it sound like triggering a third world war in your mind zone? Anyway, if it should be akin to fighting a battle, think about the militarized 7Ps (Piss Poor Planning Promotes Piss Poor Performance) slogan. You really don’t have to worry because ‘failure’ simply means that your previous effort wasn’t good enough to draw to you the success you desire. Therefore, you need to redouble (maybe triple) your efforts.
To really ace your exams, you need adequate preparation to be able to do so. Life is full of tests(exams); and the rate of your performance in life’s set test is directly proportional to the rate of your proper planning or preparation. Do you know that sometimes you might sink into self-delusion, thinking you are fit but, on the contrary (based on later discovery), you would realize that you still have much to do? So, that lacuna has to be filled in order for you to hit a good score.
Your study could be in either of these three modes: self-study, group study, or tutor-led study. However, there is no absolute crime in choosing a hybrid. The most important thing is the attainment of one goal: success. Whichever one you chose must point you to your goal.
Ironically, examining bodies are into business (real business, despite being non-profit-making); so, they do not care whether you pass or not. Should you pass, you progress; otherwise, you pay another dollar worth(or whatever currency charged) into their account.
Exams, even the standardized ones like SAT®, GMAT®, TOEFL® test, GRE® revised General Test, IELTS, and so on, should not scare the fart out of you because proper planning would help dispel every fear. Therefore, seek proper understanding of the strategies or techniques required for passing them and you will be amazed at the outcome.
What if I tell you that there are strategies you need to adopt? Do you know that you were probably flummoxed by your inability to apply the right techniques? Or how would explain that what you hitherto thought was very challenging has a simple, technically-woven technique knotted in simple steps? Have you had such an experience and felt like slapping yourself? Hahahahahaha! I caught you right there.
Come over to First New Generation Citadel and we would do you good by turning your ‘fallen self’ into a ‘standing self’. It just can’t be a terrible fall off the wall like the well-rhymed ‘Humpty-Dumpty’s’.
