Secrets of Last Minute Revision before Exams

By Sampada Bidikar,

When exams knock on your door, you have to study more and more. When there’s hardly any time left, and you haven’t done your revision yet. Here’s a solution! Read over to find out the quickest way of revising before your exams.

That time of the year is upon us, the time of revisions, preparations and tensions. Exams are just around the corner and everyone is busy studying for them. Each one of us has our own way of studying. Some will make timetables, some might randomly read a chapter they find most difficult and then the read the easy ones, or vice versa. Few would like to study with a buddy. Whatever the method, we all have one goal, and that is to do well in the exams.

With all this preparation, there is always a last minute thing to be done. It’s always there. Just before entering the exam hall, you would want to take a final look at the formulae, revise an important concept, and discuss some queries with your friends.

And more often than not, this last minute revision helps. With a proper last minute revision you enter the exam hall with confidence.

When you look at the question paper, you are confident about some questions and answer them well, as you had just revised them. But there might also be a few, for which you are unable to recollect the formula or the answer and you curse yourself for not taking a look at it once more. Has this ever happened to you?  I am sure it has happened to most of us, and you are smiling to yourself thinking how true this is.

Most of us prepare for this last minute revision beforehand. We write down important formulae in a sheet of paper or we write down the page number of the concepts we want to take a look at one more time, we make mind maps, charts, tables, etc. All these things definitely help us to do well.

I would like to suggest another sure shot method to help you with your studies and make your life easier: The Smart Learning Cards from Learnhive. The perfect tool to help you revise better!
