Algebra help in Wichita, KS.

10/02/2014
For many students, tests can be a great source of anxiety. This is understandable: they have great importance and can define their grade for the school year. Still, this tense state can cause them to make some mistakes when the time to take a test comes around (even if they studied hard for it). 

If this has happened to you, The Tutoring Center in Wichita has a few tips on how you can take your tests more efficiently and avoid making some mistakes on it. 

How to Take a Test Efficiently

1. Get your supplies (pencil, sharpener, eraser, among other necessary tools) out of your bag and on your desk so you don’t have to look for them once you’ve started answering the test.

2 .Trust in your knowledge, focus all of your attention on the test, and breathe in deeply to calm your nerves. 

3 .Put your name on the test as soon as you get it so you don’t forget this crucial step later on.

4 .Read through all of the instructions/questions before you begin and make sure you understand what each one is asking of you. If you don’t, ask your teacher to clarify.

5. Use legible penmanship and comprehensible sentences to answer. Your answers should be easy to understand.

6. Answer the easiest questions first to get them out of the way as soon as possible. Use the rest of the time to concentrate on answering the harder ones. 

7. If you are skipping one question to come back to it later, put a big arrow next to it so you don’t overlook it once you’re done with the rest.

8. Check the back of each sheet on the test for additional questions that you may have missed or forgotten about.

9. Once you’re sure that you’ve completed your test, review it calmly and thoroughly. Read the instructions, questions, and your answers again and try to spot any mistakes you may have made.
