GUIDE TO EXAMINATIONS This guide has two parts:  Preparing for exams  Taking exams It has an appendix with an example exam answer with comments about why it was so good. PREPARING FOR EXAMS   Make sure you have noted the correct date, time, duration and place for the exam. Start a revision schedule for the exam several weeks beforehand – many rehearsals is a key to success and if you have not planned to set aside time over many days to rehearse and rehearse, you may fail. Prioritise the material to be studied by looking at the core issues and the questions in past exam papers. To prepare an answer to a likely question, make up a plan in note form, to outline of how you would answer a likely question, using headings and sub-headings. Use diagrams and acronyms to emphasise the linkages or associations between concepts because associations help memory. Think about one or two examples that you will use to illustrate your mastery of the concepts – location, size and so on. Make sure you take at least one five-minute break every study hour, and do not study too late on the night before the exam (about two or three hours should be OK). Do a quick review of your notes on the morning of the exam to freshen your memory. Take a spare pen or biro to the exam room.

 

TAKING EXAMS   Choose a seat away from the aisles and the invigilator’s desk (where early finishers hands in their booklets), to reduce distractions during the exam period. Read the exam paper instructions carefully to ensure you know how many questions have to be answered and if any are compulsory. This reading includes the very important Examiner’s Ruling. Then, read all the questions and decide on the ones you will answer. Allocate your time for each question (and for each part of the question…...

Guide to Preparing for Exams

...Guide to preparing for examinations Nitin D Parekh, CA, CFA, MBA (IIM, A) CFO, Cadila Healthcare Ltd The preparation aspects for examinations can be divided into four sections like Substantive Preparation, Material Preparation, Physical Preparation and Mental Preparation. Substantive preparation refers to learning the material which is the subject matter of the exam. Material preparation refers to the physical items to be taken for the exam. Physical preparation refers to specific care about food, sleep and rest. Mental preparation refers to the attitude and self responsibility, avoidance of tension and stress and being motivated and charged to take up the exam. Substantive Preparation for examinations: 1. What to read?: There is so much to read on any subject like textbooks, study guides, reference books, suggested answers etc. Read all text books and prescribed reading. 2. How to read? How to read addresses issues of methodology of reading and various reading practices. One technique is that of faster reading by not reading word-to-word and not going for re-reading called regression. Faster reading saves a lot of time. Amongst many techniques aimed at better reading, SQ3R is one of the most powerful techniques. This technique is very effectively used by me from 12th standard to Chartered Accountant, IIM MBA and CFA course. This technique is the basic foundation of my academic success leading to consistent rank holding career and...

The Advance Guide for Exam

...ECON545 Final Exam Study Guide The final exam will be an online open-book, open-notes, open-computer exam with a time limit of 3-1/2 hours. It will be worth 30% of the course grade. Your final course grades must come from Keller (not me). The final exam will consist of 9 essay questions (6@ 30 points each; 3 @40 points each), each having multiple parts. There are calculations to be performed, but they are straight forward arithmetic operations for which a calculator should not be needed. As with the quizzes, I believe that the final exam should focus on basic economic principles and models, and I have structured the exam in that way. Also, I have made sure to ask questions that reinforce all of the GM545 TCOs. A good way to prepare is to review the assigned chapters from the text, the Key Questions that were assigned from the text, and the two quizzes. There is quite a bit of material to cover. So, in the interest of helping you focus your study somewhat, why don’t I tell you what is the subject matter of each of the nine questions? 1. Demand and Supply (TCO A) Know what the law of supply and demand is all about and be able to predict the impact on equilibrium price and/or quantity when supply and/or demand factors change. The interpretation of some basic graphs will be required. 2. Elasticity and Marginal Revenue (TCO B) The label on this question suggests what you need to know. You need to be able to calculate price elasticity of demand......
