5 TIPS FOR ENTRANCE EXAMS

You might remember when I said that "I don't apply to schools this year, with the
wedding, blogging and work and all the other stuff I'm planning lately - I've got too
much on my plate". Okay, so how did that go? I applied to two schools and I'm having
2 entrance exams. Three, if I'm lucky.
Anyways, I've never been that organised person so I would say that I gather too much
on my plate a time to time and I'm super proud of my over achiever self if I succeed
with this project I got now going on so, wish me luck!
Today I decided to share with you my top5 tips for becoming entrance examination
and I hope this is helpful to at least some of you.


#1 WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT STRESS ABOUT IT

This is my number one rule with basically everything. I've never knew how 
to stress about something. You know like stress that much that I can't work 
with anything anymore. I'm lucky I know, but I believe that when you think 
that everything will eventually work the way it's supposed to be, there's no 
need to stress. Of course little stress always helps performance - but if you 
stress too much, it's no good for you. 

#2 MAKE A STUDY PLAN

This one I learned from my co-worker and no, I do not have a study plan so 
I'm not supposed to be promoting this way to prepare for your entrance exams. 
But I've heard so much good about this method. When you have the plan and 
stick to it, it might make your learning head to a positive way. 

#3 REVISE

Revising is the mother of learning as they say, that's an annoying phrase and 
heard too often but as annoying as it is - it's true. 

#4 BREATHE

When you're in the lobby, waiting to get to your position and start the test 
- remember to breath. There's so many people who are just so stressed and 
nervous about the exam that they forget how to breath. Just breath and repeat 
in your mind "I'm good at this, I know all of this."

#5 HAVE ALL THE EQUIPMENT

Night before the exam, check that you've packed everything you need. 
Need a calculator? Check if you have it in your bag. You don't? Find it and 
put it there so you won't forget it. Check that you've got enough pencils and 
rubbers, everything. Double everything. But maybe not that calculator, they're 
pretty pricey. 


Do you have any useful tips of your own?

  1. Thanks for the tips! I was a terrible test taker. The only way I could get past an exam was realizing that a test isn't here to ruin my life, and it won't be the end of the world if I fail. I like tip #5, as I never used to have my stuff together the night before. I could see how that would be a huge help!

  10. Great tips right on time for exams period. What I would add is organising study groups is extremely helpful as u get to test each other and also they might have revised a part that you didn't think of and vice versa.

    1. Study group is great too, especially if you know people who're going to go to same exam as you do :)

  11. really good tips ! I never had a study plan but never failed an exam either, I personally thin it's not that important and I completely agree with the first tip, most of the time we stress because the exam is important not because it's that tough :) Good luck babe
