Why Study for Exams: an Anti-Cramming Advice

By Loo821ql Subscribe to RSS | March 11th 2012 | Views:

In your whole life as a student, you will come across a hundred different exams, or may be more. Some find their way around it, while others stick to what is most acceptable, which is, studying. When pressed by time, or the subject just seems very difficult to pass, a student sometimes recklessly take the exam even without enough knowledge to complete it. The situation is made even worse by the tension you feel over its possible outcome.

Flunking the exams can lead to being reprimanded by your professor, having to enroll in the subject again next semester, or disappointing your parents. There can be a lot of answers to the question "why study for exams?", and below are the top 3:

1) Exams make up 40% of your total rating.

Examinations are mainly used to gauge what you have learned in a subject area, thus forming 40% of your final grade. This is one important thing that cannot be ignored if you do not want a failing mark, and have all your efforts just go in vain. You may be given options to redeem yourself, perhaps through a term paper or a special project, but either way will be more complicated and eat up a lot of your time. Remember that you also have other subjects to think about, so don't go wasting your time.

2) Studying beforehand gives a positive outlook.

When you know that you have studied enough, you will have this aura of confidence that you can pass the exam, if not ace it. It should be noted that a positive outlook helps make the brain perform better, thus the more chances of doing good in the exams. Also, studying long before the examination date can help you retain more information compared to studying the night prior to it. To make it more fun, you may want to study with a group, or try a scheme that can make studying less boring.

3) Cramming will only make your look desperate.

Some students are just good at memorizing details when cramming but others will surely find their desperate moves to be of no use. Unless you have listened well during your past lectures, there is no way you can learn all that have been tackled for the term in just one go. Easy come, easy go that is what happens when you cram. If you study for exams, you will not need to pressure yourself only to fail in the end.

The value of education cannot be underrated. The government agrees to this fact, and shows it not just by allotting budget for education, but also by creating laws to better the conditions of many students. Examinations are given to make sure that students optimize their opportunities to learn, and not to serve as punishment to make their lives complicated. Studying for exams need not be a burden, but instead used as a way to bond with classmates and friends, to prove what you can do, and to learn more than what is taught in classrooms.
