Many students taking their State Board Exam will fail it because they spend to much time on difficult questions and then do not have enough time to answer the easy questions.
Remember the following 4 points:
1- Every question is worth the same number of points (whether it is easy or hard, long or short).
2- Answer every question.
3- Never leave any question blank or unanswered.
4- An unanswered question is always wrong.
Go through the entire Exam answering the easy questions immediately – this will improve your confidence and get your brain really thinking about the subject.
Skip the difficult questions until all the easy ones have been answered; then, and only then, go back and answer the more difficult ones.
AND PLEASE, READ THE ENTIRE QUESTION, AND ALL THE ANSWER CHOICES – CAREFULLY!!!
Make sure you are answering the question you were asked, not the question you “think” you were asked.
Below is an example of this situation, and this is an actual State Board Exam question:
Excretion is a process using perspiration to cool the body through the _____ Glands.
a) Oil Glands
b) Sweet Glands
c) Sebaceous Glands
d) Endocrine Glands
e) Exorine Glands
f) Sweat Glands
g) Apocrine Glands
h) Eccrine Glands
Don’t Lie – How many of you jumped at Answer Choice a) = sweet Glands, when the correct answer is Answer Choice f) = Sweat Glands?
There is a big difference between “sweet” and ‘sweat” (only 1 letter, but still a big difference).
REPEAT THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS, OUT LOUD, 3 TIMES:
READ THE QUESTIONS AND THE ANSWERS – CAREFULLY.
ANSWER THE EASY QUESTIONS FIRST.
