MANAGING YOUR TIME DURING THE EXAM: HOW TO DO IT?
How to manage your time during an exam? It is important to note that the exam period marks the final sprint. You have to gather your strength, go fast, and give your best. There is nothing worse than not having enough time to finish your paper during an exam. Knowing how to manage your time throughout an exam is essential, and allows you to work with serenity. Here are some tips to help you be ready for exam day!
Each type of test lasts a certain amount of time, and not a minute longer. One hour, two hours, three hours, or even four hours at the most: you have to make the most of the time available. Here are some tips on how to manage your time during the exam
– Read the subject and the list of documents. Choose the order in which you read the documents (chronologically or antechronologically, by style of document, according to the order of the documents in the subject…). Your exercises will have helped you to know which reading order suits you best.
– Above all, it is important to prepare your bag correctly the day before the exam, with everything in its place. This will save you time and stress at the beginning of the exam.
– Use a watch to manage your time, so you can see the time at a glance.
– You will need to organise your time differently depending on the type of test and the subject. First, take time to choose your subject. Then, if you choose an essay, read the statement carefully, analyse the subject and write down your first ideas for about 15 minutes.
– Take the time to write legibly and make sure your essay is logically structured. Your parts and sub-parts must be visible. Above all, respect the number of pages requested, write 4 pages, not 3 pages, nor 5 pages
– Then set aside a good part of the exam (at least a third, if not half) to write your draft. You can then write it up in a clean, unhurried manner. Remember to leave at least 20 minutes for the conclusion, which is often rushed. For written papers, such as essays, commentaries and explanations of texts, take care to set aside five to ten minutes for rereading at the end of the test.
– It is a good idea to set yourself a time limit: for example, tell yourself that at such and such a time you will have to go on to the clean copy, or start your conclusion. So don’t dwell on one step, even if you haven’t finished it completely. Get on with it, even if you have to come back to it later.
