The last eighteen months have changed the entire landscape of learning, possibly forever. Indeed, some universities are already coming out and saying that virtual learning and online lectures will be permanent things. The way you absorb learning materials has changed dramatically, as has the way you have been tested on them. Online exams are very much a thing, and they come with some pros and cons. Many people prefer them to traditional exams, though it can be hard to achieve the grades you want, largely due to how different it feels to sit these exams.
Fear not, for you are about to learn how to smash your online exams every single time without fail! Here are some tips:
Keep your notes handy
The benefit of online exams is that you can have notes with you and nobody will know about it. Therefore, it makes sense to still do your revision and to create notes but keep them close to you while you do the exam. Try to split them into categories so you know which notes to look at for which questions. Or, if you have another device you can use, make your notes digital. This way, you could hop into a Word Document or Google Docs and search for key phrases to find the relevant notes for a question you’re struggling with.
Get extra help
Believe it or not, but you could actually get someone to help you sit your online exams. Again, this is a benefit of the online way of learning as it’s harder for schools and colleges to regulate. Websites like Take My Online Class can set you up with experts that will literally sit the exam for you. This is useful in situations where you’re absolutely overrun with work and exams, so you can’t mentally handle all of them at once. Letting someone else sit the exam takes some weight off your shoulders, so you can focus on the exams that you’re better at. Think of it as delegating a task to someone else, so you have the mental capacity to deal with all your work.
Find a quiet place
A downside of online exams – and online learning in general – is that you have more distractions to worry about. When you’re at home trying to do work, you’ve got all of the things around you that distract you when you’d usually come home from school or college. So, trying to focus on the exams with these distractions can be challenging. As such, you need to find a quiet place to sit your exams with as few distractions as possible. Hopefully, there’s somewhere that fits this description in your house or flat. If not, you may want to consider going to a library to sit the exams. They are quiet and peaceful environments that could encourage you to be more focused, helping you perform better during the exams!
Utilize these three top tips to smash all of your online exams and achieve better grades. Now, you can unleash your potential and start your path towards a successful career.
