Regardless of what ITEC subject you are studying the exams can be quite a worrying and stressful time for any student. Exam preparation is therefore essential.
I have been teaching ITEC for a number of years and as a result I can offer the following tips on how to pass your exams;
1. Read each question very carefully before answering. This might sound obvious to you but you’d be amazed at the number of students that overlook something on a question. A typical example of this:
Question: Which one of the following is not a function of the Skeletal System?
The “not” is often not seen by students especially if they are stressed and in a panic. Always read the question a couple of times.
2. Because the format of the exam paper is multiple choice questions, these are the type of questions that you should use when revising. Purchase a study guide that has a large set of revision questions and use them consistently throughout your studies to test yourself.
3. Make sure your study guide contains puzzles. Based on my teaching experience completing crossword puzzles is an excellent way for students to retain information. They are designed to be completed over and over again until the student feels confident enough not to look at their notes.
Take plenty of deep breaths before you enter the exam and try not to get yourself in a state. Keep calm and focused. If you follow the above 3 tips passing your ITEC exam may not be as difficult as you think!
