How past exam papers can be key to exam success
Share This Article:
Past exam papers are an essential part of preparing for your actual exams. On one hand, these papers provide a practical insight into the style and theme of typical examination papers. On the other hand, past exams equip you with knowledge and examination techniques to help you handle future exams. The Benefits of Past Exam Papers 1. Help you focus on common exam themes Going thorough past papers enables you to understand some of the themes that may be covered in your exam. It is a fact, most study courses have a wide variety of associated topics and thus, cannot all be covered in one exam paper. Scrutinising these papers is the best way to determine the areas that examiners usually test students on, so that you can focus your revision on those areas. 2. Practice with actual exam-style questions Including past exam papers in your revision enables you to have a feel of the key topic areas and/or themes that you are likely to encounter in your forth-coming exams. As such, you have an idea on the subject areas that you are strongest in, as well as the areas that you know little or nothing about. You can, therefore, focus your revision on the particular subject areas that you don’t have a proper grasp of. It also helps you to understand and refresh your memory on some of the common terminology and phrases that you are likely to encounter in the actual examination.
