Test Writing tips

Everyone wants to be able to write tests effectively to achieve the marks they truly deserve. Writing tests can be stressful. Everyone approaches tests differently, with different strategies and skills. 

Students know that they need to study and that they should probably start well in advance of the exam, but they may not actually know how to study.

When preparing for a test, give yourself time to cover the information. Cramming clogs up your short term memory, when in reality you want to store information for tests in your long term memory.  Break up material into smaller chunks to review. A common mistake is trying to cram and learn new information the night before a test.
