Tips on Taking Exams

Listen up carefully, students, as school is once here again. Here are more tips on how to take exams.

If the test will be checked electronically, make sure that you have the proper writing implements (lead pencil, black marker, etc.). Don’t forget to read the instructions carefully. If it says to blacken the circle fully, then do so. The machine won’t be able to read your answers. So even if you answered correctly, they won’t be counted.

Write legibly. I’m sure the one checking your paper would appreciate it if they can read your answers. Many test papers (especially those essay type ones) have been graded less than they should be because the penmanship is terrible.

Check your answers all over again, especially those where you have doubts. You might have missed something.
