Tests are one of the staples of student life. Still, they aren’t always pleasant: tests can produce anxiety and nerves on many students since they represent a large percentage of their grade. However, by following certain test-taking tips, you’re likely to be more effective when completing your tests, which in turn may result in you getting better results. If you’d like to learn what they are, The Tutoring Center in Long Grove is happy to share them with you in this post.

How to Take a Test 

  1. Get the required supplies on your desk so you can access them easily during your test. This way, you’ll avoid getting distracted when you’re focused on your test.
  2. Speaking of which, prepare for your test by taking deep breaths in to relax, and preparing mentally to focus all of your attention on the sheets of paper before you.
  3. Before you start, write down your name on your test. It may be a very simple tip, but you wouldn’t want your test to get lost or confused with someone else’s, would you?
  4. One of the most important things you should do is read the instructions thoroughly and carefully. Use this time to ask your teacher about anything that isn’t clear on the test.
  5. Answer as instructed and in proper form! Tests can be nerve wracking, but that shouldn’t result in you writing down rushed answers, with incomprehensible penmanship and structure.
  6. Answer the easiest questions first. By doing so, you’ll get them out of the way and will have more time to answer the more complicated ones. Just mark the ones you’re skipping so you can return to them later.
  7. Do not cheat! If you’re struggling, you may be tempted to peek at your peers’ paper or have a cheat sheet. But, teachers evaluate your process along with your answer, so it may not even be that useful.
  8. Sometimes, you may feel rushed to hand your test in and you forget to check the back, causing you to miss questions and points. Always check the back to make sure you’re done.
  9. Lastly, always, always review your test a couple of times over before you give it to your teacher. Calmly look for any mistakes you could’ve made and correct them.
