Tips to ace half yearly exams for students:
- Pay close attention throughout class revision sessions: Take notes or create flow charts/brain maps that you can refer to when self-studying. Make it a habit to go over these notes twice a day, in the morning and at night.
- Every day until the test, practice your weaker topics: This will allow you to master them before the exam. Do your best to complete all of your schoolwork. Make an effort to correctly answer every question. Repeat if you missed a question. If you’re not sure why you got it wrong, ask your teacher or assign yourself extra problems.
