Exam Revision Tips

Transform stress into success with these game-changing revision tips.

Let’s be honest, very few individuals relish the idea of taking an exam. If you are an aspiring Electrician or desire a higher level of certification, they cannot be avoided. However, the dread of failure and exam stress can be alleviated by diligently preparing, and thoroughly revising.

Here are some need to know tips and tricks to assist you on your journey to qualified status.

Discover your learning style.

If you are a visual learner, it may be time to get the sticky notes out, adopt a colour coded learning method, or even visit YouTube for some video assistance. This can also be useful for auditory leaners. Listening to a presenter discuss topics on your course, can really help to make that information stay put in your brain. If you are an avid notetaker, writing each section down can be a great way to remember those crucial topics. Whichever category you fall into, it is certainly worth doing a quick internet quiz to find out and adapt your revision methods to your unique style.

Plan, plan, and plan some more!

Creating a revision timetable may sound slightly juvenile, and may even cause flashbacks to secondary school exams, but trust us, it works. If you are balancing a full-time job with revision, it can be a huge challenge to find spare time. And whatever you do, begin this process in plenty of time, not with a few days to spare, splitting each segment into bitesize learning chunks.

Take a break!

You heard right. Revision is not just about constant reading and note-making. Your brain needs some time to process and absorb that electrical knowledge. Maintaining a healthy balance between work and play is crucial to the learning process.

Read the question carefully.

In a theory examination, it is imperative that you fully comprehend the question. If you are unsure, flag the question and return to it later, allowing you to double-check the wording before providing your answer.

Keep your cool.

Have faith in yourself that you know your stuff. All too often, learners enter the exam room and feel as if their mind has gone blank. This is a classic mind over matter. If you have put the effort and time into revising, you must continue believing in yourself. Particularly in a practical exam, it is important to always show professionalism. Complete each step calmly, you got this!
