Ten Testing Tips

With it being testing time, a lot of students are stressed, and are not doing simple things that could easily get them a good grade. Which is why I, Michael Clifton, and the Yearbook Staff have come up with ten tips that just might help you.

  1. Make sure you pay attention in class. So that when you have to final test, you won’t be stressing because you think you didn't ’t learn it. Chances are you probably did, and you just were not paying attention.

  2. Eat a good nutritional breakfast. At home or the one provided by the school. Your brain won’t be able to function to its full capacity if you don’t have food in your body.

  3. Go to sleep early, on time, but NOT! Late. Do not stay up. If you are tired your brain is tired, and you’re more likely to not understand the question, and material. Sleep is very important for your body and brain, so make sure you get enough of it.

  4. Be confident in your ability. You got this. You didn’t mdidn'tit here, your grade level, for no reason. You made it because you are a smart individual. You have the ability to do good, you just have to know that and not second guess yourself.

  5. Keep track of the remaining time. Sometimes students don’t even finish because they ran out of time. Don’t constantly look at a clock, or worry about how long you have left. Because that’s just a distraction.

  6. Don’t get distracted. Some time little things like a taping foot, or things like that nature can very easily distract you. Not if you Keep your focus on the work in front on you.

  7. Go over your work. It’s never hurt someone to check their answers. If you have extra time, use it. See if you might have misread something, or bubbled in wrong.

  8. Use your resources. They don’t give that scrap paper, calculator, or highlighter for no reason. Use the scrap paper to work out problems on no calculator math parts, or to outline your essay. That highlighter would also be good to highlight quotes for a essay.

  9. If you don’t know the answer, skip it and answer it later. Why waste your time trying to figure out one question, by then you could have answered 3 other ones. Just skip that one, and answer it later.

10. Try. Do not just guess because you don’t want to spend the time trying to figure it out, and if you do guess make it an educated one. Don’t be lazy. Do your best on the test!
