I have already taken two exams. I learn English as a foreign language and at the end of my course in the language school I had to take an exam. At first I was afraid of it. But then I managed to concentrate on the task. I made a few mistakes but my grade was ok anyway. Later, when I had to take an exam in my Art course, I didn’t worry about it at all, and everything went fine for that one, too.
I know that lots of students don’t like exams. They would prefer a school without tests and exams at all. But I don’t think it’s possible. Exams help us measure the progress we’ve made and help us to understand what we need to improve. Students usually need some motivation to learn and exams are a very effective way to make them study.
If you want to pass your exam successfully, you should remember a few points. The first one: revise all the material you’ve learned but not on the night before the exam. That night you should have a good sleep to be able to concentrate on your tasks. Second: have a walk before you get into the classroom — it’ll help you feel more relaxed.
It’ll sound absolutely crazy to most students but I don’t mind exams at all. More than that, taking exams makes me feel good. It’s like doing sport for me — I have to make some effort to achieve the result and if I manage (and in most cases I do), I feel very proud of myself. High grades motivate me to learn further. Low grades, if they happen, mark an area for improvement.
It was my first exam and I felt frightened and uneasy. I’m quite good at mathematics but there, in the exam room, I couldn’t concentrate. The first task took me much more time than it was supposed to and I simply didn’t manage to complete the test on time. My grade was very low, I didn’t get a pass, and I have to take it again in a month.
