Well, it happens. Every student can be caught in ignorance during the examination, which of course is tantamount to a negative assessment and a failure to pass. Fortunately, there is still a chance to improve. You will receive it during the correction session. This time, however, you need to be much better prepared not to make any serious problems. In this guide you will find some practical tips.
Focus on the issues raised in the first timeframe
It’s no secret that examiners love to ask their students about the same thing all the time. Some people simply have their own tailstocks. Therefore, you must first assume that you will hear exactly the same questions in the correction test as before.
For an examiner, this may also be a way to assess whether you are taking them seriously. Others, in turn, do not want to cause problems for students, which is why they repeat the same questions during the amendment session.
Remember what you were asked about at the first time and study the material very carefully. Don’t get lost in anything that may matter to the examiner. You need to master this range perfectly. Look for various interesting facts. Going beyond the basics you will make a good impression on the examiner, which may result in a higher grade.
Start earlier
If you were preparing for the examination at the first time for a week, you already know that this is far too little. This time give yourself more time to learn. There are no specific rules – one student needs only a few days of solid “forging”, another prefers to study gradually for a few weeks. Find the best solution for yourself, but never start learning at the last minute. Much better results are achieved with systematic approach.
Talk to the examiner
There is nothing to prevent you from talking to the lecturer and asking him for some guidance long before the examination. A good teacher will certainly not ignore you. Of course, the examiner will not tell you specific questions, but he can, for example, indicate the scope of knowledge that clearly “spells over” to you.
This is a mundane piece of advice, but you know very well that when you have a knife on your throat, it’s extremely difficult to relax. Nevertheless, try to plan your studies in such a way that you can find a moment of rest. Your brain needs it very much. Otherwise, he will stop learning. “Forging” into a fallen person is completely pointless. Don’t forget about the need to sleep, still meet friends, have some fun.
The correction test is very stressful – don’t be under any illusions that it will be otherwise. However, if you take the matter seriously, complete the knowledge and prove to the examiner that you did not overcome the problem, then obtaining a positive assessment will be only a formality.
