How to pass an exam” is a question that many newbies are asking. Like it or hate it, it’s difficult to avoid exams when you are looking for promotion in your desired career.
Preparing for an exam effectively comes from studying in a smarter manner, not just harder. The higher you go, the tougher it becomes, therefore relying on hard work alone may not pay you well but smart study work.
Go ahead and devote all your attention to the exams preparation and keep distractions as far as possible. Put aside all your social networking sites, mobile games, video games, movies, mobile apps and any other thing with the tendency to distract.
Set a target
Be determined and realistic as you plan to plan to study for an examination. Everything needed should be outlined with a pen and paper. Ask yourself questions like:
Can I complete this task in 3 hours?
Take everything you need. Make sure that you know what you are doing. Avoid noisy environment.
Understand the marking scheme
This cannot be overemphasized. Treat past questions. Questions are often set in the same structure every year. Solving past question and problems will boost your confidence in the exam. Understand each question before answering.
Do not get too familiar with a question. Treat every question as if you haven’t seen it. Be specific and straight to the point in answering a question.
Follow the instructions diligently. Do yourself a favor and stick to the rules of the examination. Avoid annoying the examiner. Write legibly and obey the rules like “do not write on the margin” and the likes.
Use reading aids
Attempt regurgitating everything instead of writing out the main points. Use pictures and diagrams in places you want to rely on. Take notes as you read.
The need for a pen and paper cannot be overemphasized. Notes makes remembrance very easy. Sometimes when writing an exam, you probably will forget your lectures, but remembering your notes isn’t difficult.
Group up with your friends
This is one of the best ways to study effectively before an exam. This is the best opportunity to compare lessons notes and solve problems. Most times, what you think is right can be proved wrong in a group reading platform.
The group members can share useful tips on how to pass the exams. You need to frequently meet so as to formulate questions and give answers to them all. There are times, in which during an exam, what you may likely remember would be from the group discussion.
Give plenty of time for getting to the exam. Get to the exam with some time to spare. Don’t be in a hurry. Don’t revise as you are walking into the exam.
Wasting time on less important point is pointless when you are against the clock. Focus your attention on the bigger picture of success. Avoid worry. Don’t panic.
Think straight. No matter how easy an exam may seems, prepare adequately for it. Ask questions when in doubt. Plan your revision wisely. Be honest with yourself.
In conclusion, there are seven powerful ways on how to pass examination without stress: practical study tips, revision ethnics and last minute review. Enjoy while you last.

It has been raining all night. The climatic condition of Accra had been unfavorable for a few days now. It was quite severe. Flooded water had encroached into the neighborhood houses of my friend, Juliet, who was living with her parent, at least 500 meters from my family house.
Fortunately, the rain stopped. It was 7:12am on Monday. It was almost school time, but I had barely prepared. A better part of the dawn was spent on my bed thinking about my school friends..
“Jude, Jude”. I heard my name from the living room.
“Oh my God! What in the world is going on? Why is this kid disturbing me”. I muttered.
Few minutes later.
“Jude, Jude”. A matured voice called my name.
“Its mummy’s voice”, I said to myself.
I reluctantly got off the bed and headed to the living room. Breakfast was ready.
“Why haven’t you taken your bath”, Mum yelled.
“Ummm! I! Ammm”. I muttered.
“Now, go take your bath. You’ve got no time. It’s almost school time. We got to go”. Mummy said.
I hesitated. I turned my face toward the Television. The moment I turned back to look at mummy, there was my Daddy, standing. He looked straight to my eyes. I was eluded in my own stupidity. I hurried to the bathroom.
In a couple of minutes, I was dressed up for school. I joined my family at the dining table for breakfast.
Fifteen minutes has passed. Mummy picked the car keys. It was time to go.
As usual, I took the front seat. I filled my mind with thoughts on the possibility of seeing Juliet when I get to school.
“Jude! Look! Here is the toy car you told me about”, John interfered.
“Jude! Juuuuddeee!” He called again.
“Aha!” Mum said
“Oh! Sorry. I passed out. So what’s popping dude”, I replied.
“It’s gone Jude. I needed you to see that toy car at C3 stores, downtown, but you delayed”.
“Sorry dear. I will check that some other time”.
The car stopped.
“You’re five minutes late, let’s alight”. Mummy said.
Mother took us to the school gate.
“Take good care of yourselves and don’t get injured while playing”. She said.
“Love you mum” we said.
“Love you too”. She replied.
We all went to our classes. In a couple of minutes, the class teacher entered.
“Good morning everyone, hope you all had a wonderful weekend” He said.
“Yes, Good morning”, we replied.
The teacher checked the daily attendance and walked away. We were taught various subjects like social studies, mathematics, French language, Verbal Reasoning and Physical Health Education.
The school time master rang the bell. It was break time. I was in no mood of taking snacks and drinks. The usual fun with football, tennis and handball was off-course because my friend Juliet wasn’t in school.
Jack had been my trusted friend from kindergarten. A time came that he was shifted to Class B, while I stayed in class A, due to the much number of students, but still the same level.
Jack called my attention, stating that Juliet couldn’t come to school due to the flood hazard experienced yesterday. He pointed out that much of her family goods was damaged in the flood water.
“Did you meet with her yesterday?” I said
“Nope! But I saw from afar”. He replied.
“I got to get some candies. Wait for me dude”. Jack said.
Waiting for him was like standing on the highway for hours.
When Jack returned; “sorry, I was distracted by those naughty footballers. This is for you”.
He handed to me some sweet candies.
“Thanks”, I said.
“Just put on a smile and study your books. You can go check for her later today. Maybe she and her family had relocated”. Jack said.
“Fuck! What did you just said? Relocated or… now, I just wanna be alone now”. I said.
“Oh sorry. I didn’t mean hurting you. Have a great day. We meet later. Cheers”
I look down to the ground viewing the walking Ants as Jack turned to walk away.
“Wait”, I said
“What’s that”, he replied
The school bell was ranged again. Time to get back to class.
I reluctantly raised my head to statuesque. And at that moment, I saw one of the school Aunt, heading to class 4. An elderly woman with children, whom I knew. Her dress code reminded me of mummy’s lifestyle. She was wearing a pink suit on black skirt and shoes. What caught my attention was the color, pink. That was mother’s favorite color.
I had known my mother from when I was just two year. I can vividly remember some events that occurred when I was just 2-3 years.
My Mother was a diligent civil servant, respectful, humble and pious. She had been very understanding and supportive in family issues. Before she got her job with the state Government, paying family bills was difficult. My Daddy, taught in a high school, so making up enough money to Carter for a lot of things was hard. But Mum’s Job aided in fixing things up. She taught me by her lifestyle that, “impatience will get me into trouble, but godliness and contentment is great gain”.
“Anytime you kneel to pray, remember my mother. She’s got a heart disease. Drugs aren’t helping sufficiently”, I said to Jack.
“OK, let me see. I’m gonna do my best on that”, he replied.
“Kudos to you”, I said.
“Take care of yourself well”. He concluded.
Jack walked to his class. It’s wasn’t Juliet’s absence from school that was making me inactive, it was a remembrance of my Mummy’s health.
I quietly walked to my class.
I had difficulty understanding what was taught in class. My body was seated, but my soul was somewhere else.
The closing bell was ranged finally.
“Oh! Yes!” I gave a sigh of relief. It was time to go home.
I recalled vividly, the time was 13.00 GMT + 1. Mother was at the school gate waiting for us to come. My siblings and I got into the car while she drove us home.
It was past seven minutes. We all alighted from the Car. I dropped my school stuffs in my room and silently walled out.
Everything was silent except the door. It made a distinctive sound that called my Mum’s attention.
“Hey where are you going to”, She said.
“I wanna get some chocolates”, I answered.
“Alright, you watch the road and Take care”.
“That was smart of me”. I said to myself.
But I knew where I was going. I walked for three minutes to Juliet’s home. It was a ghost neighborhood. I saw nobody. The water level had subsided. I walked to the main gate while I struggled with the muddy water.
“Perhaps someone is inside the building”. I said to myself.
After several attempts of knocking, and no response, I gave up.
To cover my innocent lies, I bought some candies at the store close to where I lived and walked back home.
I met John crying.
“Huh! Why are you weeping”, I said
“Mum had an attack and was rushed downtown to the Hospital”He replied
“Attack! Oh no! Common, she will be fine, now stop crying”, I said.
I didn’t know that it was that serious.
We waited for about six hours. Dad didn’t come home. My eldest sister, Jane, also wasn’t at home. It dawn on me that something worse has happened.
Although, as a little boy, I wasn’t religious, and I didn’t consider praying as a good option to what was going on.
On the eightieth hour, that was by 21.00 GMT + 1, we say Dad with some family friends. They stepped into the living room without saying a word, while My Dad walked to his bedroom. Everything was quiet.
John and I went to Dad’s bedroom.
“Dad, where’s mother”. John said.
“She at the hospital”. Dad replied.
“Hope she’s fine”, I inquired
“Sorry, please give me some time, I need to rest, we will talk later. OK”. That was his last replied. He was not in the mood. We knew he was hiding something.
Channels of fear
“Let see Jane”. I suggested
She wasn’t indoors, so it took us outside our home building. There she was, silently sobbing. John ran to her side, I followed. I recalled the warm embrace, then the Cat was let out of the bag.
“She, she, she… couldn’t make it”. While she sobbed.
I fell to the floor.
“So it’s real. Why didn’t I see the handwriting on the wall earlier today”.
Tears dropped down my face.
My only hope was gone. Its two years now. Life has never remained the same. Things have drastically changed. Thoughts of Mummy’s lifestyle filled my mind.
With the help of friends, My Daddy later remarried. Living with a step mother isn’t funny. My siblings were given to close family relatives. I stayed for awhile but I left to grandma’s home at the village. I can’t tell if what I did was right, my continual troubled mind force me to leave home.
Since she passed away, I had not been comforted. In church, late last year, I was told to let go the past and concentrate on my future dreams. One of my good friends admonished me that I can’t succeed meaningfully if visiting the past is what I often do.
Its like I’ve got to pick up the pieces of my life and move on. If you’ve got anything for me, please do see me. Don’t just pray for me only, but try and visit. Your presence is highly needed and valued in time like this. Hope to hear from you, or see you.
Its me, Your friend
This is a true life experience of a friend.
Have you experienced the lost of a loved one, and its hard for you to forgive yourself, and let go the past? The person you once love, passed on unexpectedly, and it’s like the world is going to crush.
I bring unto you “GOOD NEWS”.
ALTHOUGH CIRCUMSTANCES will not be the same, but just cheer up. Forget the past memories and look forward. Everything will be well. It can be hard, but you just have to look up.
This article is special to you alone. Without mincing words, being irresistible in a relationship is something that everyone desires. Having and enjoying a fulfilled loved life is the dream of everyone. Seeing the desire materialized into a long lasting relationship is the yearning of most people. So now let’s check into how to be irresistible in your love life effectively.
Most people get into a relationship at a very young age. They get out of it almost as immediately as they step in when their desires are accomplished or when love has gone sour. The desire for sex replaces true love and when it’s done, the relationship ends woefully
Most girls need someone who is caring, whereas most guys want sex. Irrespective of the fact that every person have his/her own wish in a relationship, most times unnecessary issues crept in and worsens the situation thereby leading to acute separation.
One of my friends once made a statement and I quote,
“I don’t want to endure my marriage, I want to enjoy it”.
This post is not restricted to marriage union only but it’s important to note here that if a young girl or a lady endures her relationship or marriage union instead of enjoying it, the resulting case will be that of destruction mentally, emotionally, and socially. Her lifestyle becomes unusual because of the deep desire for true love which is lacking. This may compel her into doing certain regrettable things.
There are a lot of virtues that can make you irresistible in your love life. People are attracted to you by what they see. He enjoys companionship with you but do not stay long with you. He quickly breaks the bond with you without thinking about the effects. The poor lady is left alone to wonder why this is happening to her. Broken relationships experiences have piled itself up in the mind of such a lady. Family and friends may suggest special means to bring him back, but still he insists that it’s over.
We sometimes pay less attention on the person who loves us and more attention on the person who cares little. This is funny but it’s the case with most amateur relationships in high schools and higher institutions of learning. Sweet words and wealth drives a lady into a man’s life but that does not guarantee the fun in the relationship. So this calls for adequate caution when making decision on whom to date or marry. There are a lot of unfriendly friends in this open world.
Love is kind. Love is not blind. Love is not lust. Love is not infatuation. Love answers everything. There is no fear in love. It is not proud. It does not envy. It does not get angry. It does not think evil toward her lover. Love cheers up. It believes. It has hope in everything. Love rejoices in what is good. Love never fails.
Love understands everything and everyone. Love tolerates easily. It bears one another burdens. It is courageous. It powers up the love languages. Love cares. It’s beautiful.
In other to be irresistible in your relationship you need to work on your thoughts. The thinking faculty of a girl affects her lifestyles. What you think is what you will do. Whenever your pessimism is subjected under your optimism, you then become irresistible. Details soon.
Love languages have a special means of keeping two people together. Body languages when properly applied have unique features that unit a man with a woman. Both are needed to ensure that oneness is not broken. Love and body languages should not be misapplied.
In this journey of life we need people around us to help in times of need, carry our heavy burdens, encourage us, guide our paths and be there for us. A tree cannot make a forest. It needs other giant trees to fulfill the dream. Life is short to ignore friends that come your way and what will qualify you to be irresistible in your relationship are virtues.
The journey of life carries hurdles. It’s thick and thin through hot and cold moments. Even the rich do cry because pain is a universal problem. You need someone who will not disappoint when you need him most but what will qualify you is that irresistible nature. When you become irresistible, people and better opportunities will come your way.
Life is as a school and at each lecture you are exposed to knowledge. The more you study is the more you develop yourself. Assuming that you were an island, can you survive alone? Everyone learns better when we live together. It’s one thing to be in a relationship, it’s another thing to maintain it. All human have flaws, but it’s not all human that have self control over those flaws. This post will ensure that you remain irresistible in your love life.
