How to prepare for semester end exams?

Now that most of the universities and colleges have gone offline, examinations have become a source of concern for students. This is the first time in two years that students will appear for physical examinations. But, we’ve got your back, here are a few tips to help you sail through semester end exams smoothly

Previous years’ papers

The best guide for the pattern of questions and marking scheme are previous years’ papers. Most of them are available online or in the college library. Going through these will give you a rough idea of what to expect and how to prepare accordingly. Usually, the core questions remain the same, therefore you can easily gauge out the most probable ones 🙂

Go through the prescribed readings

Foundational knowledge is necessary to write answers. Try and go through at least one reading thoroughly so that you have the groundwork and basic understanding of the paper. You can then go through additional readings to build upon your answer. Many solved question booklets are also available in the market, which could be of help while preparation.
