Preparation for the Board Exams
Last few weeks can be a stressful time for all students–I know it used to be for me. Knowing how to properly prepare is the key to avoiding stress and acing not only in Forensic Medicine but in every single paper.
1. Plan your study, give enough time:- Don't leave it until the last minute. While some students do seem to thrive on last-minute 'cramming', it's widely accepted that this is not the best way to approach an exam. Set out a timetable for your study.
2. Condense your study material, use flow charts and diagrams:- Visual aids can be really helpful when revising. Closer to the exam, condense your revision notes, getting your ideas down in brief format can then help you to quickly recall everything you need to know during the exam.
3. Practice on old exams-question papers (at least of past 10 years):- One of the most effective ways to prepare for exams is to practice taking past versions. This helps you get used to the format of the questions, know the instructions that might be given to you in question paper and---if you time yourself---can also be good practice for making sure you spend the right amount of time on each question.
