How to ensure you pass your March/April exams
Technical Matric through correspondence must be carefully planned by the person having such studies as a small relaxing can be disastrous. This is especially true when it comes to term one candidates who have the smallest time compared to all the other remaining two terms. Below are some of the suggestions that candidates can use to their advantage
Avoid postponing your studies.
The mind has a habit of always wanting to postpone difficult tasks especially when they are related to mental tasks like studying. However since your resolutions are still fresh, you have the best advantage of turning this battle to your favor by keeping your resolutions in front of you in which I believe one of those resolutions will be to finish your Matric. If they are not part of your resolutions then it means your studies are not important to you. I will suggest you add them today as this will give you mental strength when fatigue and the tendency to procrastinate start creeping in.
Do not do too much at one time.
Avoid the temptation of wanting to do too much studying at the same time. There is a popular adage which says ‘How do you eat an elephant?’, and the answer is ‘one bite at a time. Or ‘the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step’. What I simply mean is that just study for a few minutes each day progressively. This brings me to the next point.
Be consistent in your studies.
Try to be consistent in your studies but also avoid too much routine as your mind might play tricks on you. By saying be consistent, I mean that you must always make it a point every day that you do your studies. Times can change in which it can be while you are cooking, about to sleep, or during your lunch time at work, but make sure the day does not end without you studying.
Create a small book for your notes.
Writing your own notes has a magic way of making your mind grasp and master what you are writing. If you did not know, something magical happens between our hands and our brains when we start writing. Sore-write your notes.
With a few days left for the first Technical matric exams and you having chosen to study through correspondence, remember that where there is a will there is a way. All the best of luck.
