Do you forget stuff in few weeks even if you study it diligently?
I know the answer. Almost everyone faces this forgetfulness.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if we can retain what we study (wider connotation than just academics) for long?
Yes, it would be… and it is possible through spaced repetition.
Have you ever missed a zero, or added instead of subtracting, or put the decimal in the wrong place in math paper?
Have you ever failed to answer a question fully because you missed one of its sub-questions?
Have you ever misread a question and, as a result, answered it in a tangential direction?
These are all silly mistakes, and they’re big sins because you lose those marks which were 99 percent yours.
How do you avoid these careless mistakes in exams?
What if someone told you that you can attain high level of proficiency (a level you admire, and aspire to achieve) in android development or writing or public speaking or a sport or any pursuit in 2-3 years. You’ll likely not believe.
People, by and large, overestimate what they can achieve in the short term (say, 3-4 months) and grossly underestimate what they can in 2-3 years.
You may be leaking precious time and energy without even realizing if you don’t ask few important productivity questions. Here they are:
Have you failed to complete a test paper because you ran out of time?
Have you blanked out on seeing a tough test paper?
Have you been routinely losing marks because of silly mistakes?
And what if you were not in your peak state of mind while taking that important test?
These aren’t uncommon situations. Many struggle with these and many other issues while writing exams, which you can better cope with if you’ve a good test-taking strategy.
