This is one of the best tips that I can give you for your exams – STOP looking for tips on what might come up in the exam!
Why Looking for Tips Can Hurt Your Preparation
Many students seek advice and tips from other students, tutors, and examiners about specific questions that are likely to come up in the exams. Not the general topic, the kind of tip that says, “this specific question hasn’t come up in the last three exams so it’s very likely to appear in the next exam.”
The danger in seeking that kind of tip is that you risk not preparing for other questions as well as you should. You’ll also have the psychological fear “What if this doesn’t appear in the exam?!”
A better way is to approach exams is thinking that you have to know as much as possible – or even ALL of it! That way, it doesn’t matter what questions come up, you’ll be able to deal with all of them.
