These days memory loss during exam time is a very common problem for students. Responsible factor for this problem is tremendous pressure put on the students to perform well in exam and consequent high level exam stress. An attempt has been made through this article to address this problem and help students to come out of this problem. This article contains some tips and tricks to perform well in exam hall with improved recalling power and confidence.
Over a period of time I have observed that many students complains about lack of memory as far as their exam preparations are concerned. They complain that they used to forget the exam content in the exam hall due to exam stress. As per my understanding most of the times students curse their memory power unnecessarily where the actual culprit is the lack of right way of exam preparation. There may be lots of reason for poor recalling power like:
Lack of conceptual clarity
Habit of cramming exam material
Hence as a student I would like to share some of my tricks and techniques that I used to follow during my exam preparation to handle the issue of memory power. These suggestions can be very handy and really help you during your examinations. Please find below my suggestions:
Focus on Conceptual Study
For having god exam session it is must to have strong ability to recall the content you have prepared for the exam. For better re-calling power it is advisable to focus on Conceptual Study. Try and understand the importance of topic you are studying. Simply cramming the study material is very harmful for positive exam result. So avoid cramming and understand what you are studying.
Develop a friendship with the subject
Every subject is equal form exam point of view. For example if you have full grip on Science and math but failed to develop interest in Social Studies or English, then you are going to struggle in exam hall for sure. One should understand that it is important to prepare a strategy for every subject in order to perform well in examinations. You cannot escape from your responsibility by saying that this subject was very boring. So to have good remembrance of a particular exam material it is must to have full interest in the subject.
Regular study is must for good memory
Regular study is one of the best and worldwide used methods of developing sharp memory regarding a particular study or exam material. Regular study will help you to understand the topic in a much better way and also allow you to go into deep as far as basics structure of the topic is concerned. It is a known fact that basic understanding of any topic will definitely help you to recall the same quickly in any kind of situation.
Group Study is also very handy method
One can also go for group study method for better understanding of topic and consequent improved memory power. During group study we used to discuss various topics and this discussion really helps us to recall things or exam material quickly. Through group study you can clear each others doubts and put your study quality to the next level.
Teach others for better memory power
This point is fully based on my personal observation. I used to teach company law subject to some of my fellow students. Those teaching sessions really helped me to excel in that subject and prove very useful for me as far as remembering section, sub-sections and case laws of company law was concerned. Just like this one can always use this trick and have tiny teaching cum study sessions with others. This practice will also very useful for removal of your own doubts and improves your conceptual clarity about the subject.
Prepare short notes and put them on your study room's wall
This point is again based on my personal observation. I used to prepare short notes for exam oriented topics and put them on my study room's wall. With this method you can give important topics a quick reading every now and then. This will surely help you recall these topics quickly in exam hall.
Good Revision strategy
There is no doubt about the fact that a good revision strategy is must for exam success. One cannot perform well in exam without a crisp last time revision. So prepare a revision schedule to give a finishing touch to the exam preparation. A good last time revision will surely help you improve your memory power as far as your next day exam is concerned.
Psychological and other facts
I would suggest you to treat your poor recall memory as a psychological fact and never think that you are suffering with a problem like memory loss. Just enjoy your study sessions and follow the suggestions given above.
