How To Prepare Your Exams Like a Pro - study tips

(music)

Hey guys! Welcome back to my YouTube Channel

First of all Thank you so much for one hundred thousand subscribers

I'm so happy and in this video I'm going to show you how to prepare yourself for your exam

So all the steps you need to take to be fully prepared for whatever is coming

First thing you need to do is to gather all the things you need to study

so your summaries, your notes, your syllabus the powerpoint off the teacher and of course, your books

this may sound so obvious, but I know a lot of students who don't even have their books when the exams are coming

the second thing you should do is make a planner

especially when you have to study a lot of things

I've made two videos

one video about how I use my daily planner

and one about how I prepare my exams

that i will link in the description box

and i always use these methods to prepare myself for my exams

also, make sure you leave one or two days before the exam

especially when it's a big exam for revision

or a backup if you're behind on your schedule

or to practice a little bit more

when you're going to start studying

you should constantly keep in mind

what is the exam going to look like?

this is going to make you study a lot more efficiently

so when you know the exam is going to be a lot of theory questions

of course, you're going to study all the definitions by heart

or if you know that you have to solve some cases

that you need to practice some cases at home

my next tip is to study in the most efficient way

no one likes to study for hours and hours and hours

because it's so tiring

so choose the method that is the smartest

so if you know that your exam is going to have super detailed questions

of course, you're not going to summarise your whole book

because if you need to write in all the details, you're just going to rewrite your book

and that's going to take way too much time

another thing that you should keep in mind if you don't understand something

you can one - ask your professor

but if you are not able to ask your professor because

i don't know

you don't have any lectures

you can use google to

search for the answer or you can ask your friends

never hesitate to ask something you don't understand

if you notice that you're running out of time it's time to prioritise

so, study the most important things

and if you notice that you are spending too much time on a chapter, just skip it

and go to the next chapter

and if you have some time left you can go back to the chapters that you didn't completely study

because they were too hard or too boring or whatever

my next tip is to use your content table as a revision sheet before the exam

so your content table is basically a really really short summary of your whole book

so grab your content table and read a chapter

and try to tell everything you know about that chapter

and if you don't know something

if you forgot something

just go back to that chapter

and study it again

if you have saved the last one or two days before the exam for backup

or revising

you can also use it to practice old exams

so in my university we have a facebook group chat

where we share our old exams

and you can just look at that and practice them

but we also have a dropbox where we share old exam questions

so you can use that to practice

and if you don't understand a question or you don't know the answer

you can study it again

the last thing before the exam is to get a good night's rest

so your brain is all fresh and your body is awake

and you can concentrate really good on the exam

so those are my tips to fully prepare your exam
