How to Ace a Test, Part Deux

How to Get an A-Plus

Hey GirlMoguls, it’s Poppy again, with some more test taking tips.  So you practiced my study tips and you’re totally ready to ace the test, right?  Here are a few test day tips that will make sure you don’t feel any of the test day panic – ok so, maybe you will, but you’ll be able to beat and get a good grade:

  1. Relax- We’re not just saying chill-lax here.  Try a relaxation exercise – like closing your eyes and taking a few slow, deep breaths as you tell imagine yourself getting the test paper back with a big fat A on it.
  2. Warm up – Every test has easy questions on it and hard ones. Go through and answer the questions you know. Stumped – just circle that question and go back to it later – but don’t try to sweat through it on the first go around
  3. Trust yourself – studies show that our first answer is usually the right one – but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check your work.  If you have time, go through your answers, but don’t second guess yourself.  Your first instinct was probably the right one.
  4. Read the directions – trust me, we’ve all done it – forgotten to answer the last page of the test, or answered questions wrong because we didn’t bother to read the directions.  So don’t risk points off because you think you know it all – take a second to read the directions – all of them!
