Tips to Improve Your Test-Taking Abilities

Tests aren't something you should study for the night before. Efficient test taking consists of learning the material very well and proving it through answering test questions correctly. That is why the best way to improve on test performance is to be well prepared at all times. That means ensuring that you work on learning the material well. The following tips will help you improve your test-taking abilities without having to spend long nights studying.

What You Can Start Doing Right Now to Improve Your Test Performance

  • During class: Always do your best to pay attention to the lesson, ask questions when you don't understand something, and take notes. Write down everything the teacher says will be on the test and make it a point to go over it. During class is when most of the learning will take place and it is important that you understand what the teacher explains in order to do well on the test.
  • After class: Try to go over your notes every day and ensure you complete homework assignments. If you had a hard time with any of the homework tasks, talk to the teacher and have your questions cleared up. Don't wait until you have a test to review your notes. Instead, go over them on a daily basis.
  • Before an exam: Once you know you have an exam coming up, make sure you spend a little extra time every day going over the information that will appear on the test. Quiz yourself and try to apply what you learned. Better yet, explain the information to someone else. This will help you to learn the information a lot better.
  • The day of the exam: Get to class early and make sure you are well prepared with everything you need (pencil, paper, calculator, etc.). Relax and take a few deep breaths. Don't stress out. 

  • During the exam: Read or listen to the instructions carefully and make sure you follow them. Complete the questions you are sure about first, then go back to the ones you are a little doubtful on. Finally, finish up with the ones you don't know. Look at the options and if you are unsure, pick the answer that makes the most sense. Just do your very best and don't rush. Use up all the time you need or that you are allowed without feeling pressured by those that finish first.
