BOARD EXAM TIPS

A. Before the Exam
 Divide review materials to be studied into reasonable-sized study
blocks that can be
completed in a single-study session
settings.






Familiarize yourself with the types of questions which will be asked
in the examination.
Reserve some of your study block time periods for self-assessment
using practice test sets and
Q&A’s to test and evaluate your
knowledge and preparedness.
Pray and Eat nutritious food
Don’t drink coffee before the exam
Have enough sleep
Make sure you will arrive at the venue 2 or 3 hours before the actual
examination time.
Breakfast is a must =)

B. During the Exam
 Listen to your proctor and follow the instructions carefully. ( Asking
questions is not a sin).
 Refrain from doing the following:
 Folding the answer sheet
 Handling the AS with wet hands
 Writing unnecessary things
 Pencil is to shade and Pen is to write
 Make sure you are answering the questions asked (not one that may
have reminded you of or the one you thought was going to be
asked).
 Mark questions you want to take a second look at; circle ones you
have to skip, that way you’ll be able to locate them quickly at the
end of the section.
 Check frequently to make sure you are answering the questions in
the right spot. Right answers in wrong places results in test failures.
 Be careful not to make any strange marks on your answer sheet as
the test is graded by Machine.
 Change answer only if you have a good reason of doing so.
 The questionnaires are yours, but you cant take it home ( life is like
that=)). Underline the context cues. Sometimes answers are obvious.
TEST TAKING STRATEGIES
Situation - specific scenarios that give clues to what could be the best
answer. It defines a “reality” to which the question will evolve, and the
answer will fit.
4 Rules which will lead you to the right answer:
 Comprehension- important task to understand well both the
situation and the stem. Mark! Remember, you are allowed to
write on the questionnaire. Understand the details being
provided, but do not create your own story.
 Anticipation- suggestion that you predict the answer to the
question before seeing the options. You may even cover the
options to avoid bias to one which may be just a distractor.
 Removal (Elimination)- use of the power of elimination.
Eliminate the distractors which are obviously not the answer.
The rule of removal dictates: do not decide on what is the
best answer, unless you have reduced your options to only
two.

RPm TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY . force. Leverage. ( Make sure it is you. C. which one option has over the other remaining option.the decision-making on what is the answer between two remaining options.
