Exam study tips for students

With the exam season upon us, the marketing team spoke to some of the top achievers from Chief Albert Luthuli Campus to get some tips to help you get through this stressful time as efficiently and as successful as possible.



“I like to study way in advance, and not just the night before.  I take plenty of breaks and allow myself to rest. 

When I’m feeling stressed or overwhelmed I do some physical exercises then I go back to studying.”



“I try not to stress about exams too much.  I set a time table for studying.  It also helps to set goals so that you know what you want, set your targets and write them down. 

I like to study alone but I also help fellow students who are struggling - that helps me because when I’m tutoring others on a certain topic that topic sinks in even more. 

My advice to students is that they must form study groups and help each other in areas that they struggling in. Get lots of rest. Learn in advance while you still have time.  On the day of the exam, relax, calm down and pray”



“I believe that different study methods work for different people.  I like to use past exam papers when I’m studying for a test or an exam because they test how much you know.  I also go over my class exercises because you’ll find that’s where examiners get most of their questions when setting the papers. 

I like to study alone, maybe two days before the exam, but I also pay attention in class especially to the examples used by the lecturer, I find that it’s those examples that pop up in my head during the exam and remind me of what I learnt in class.  I also enjoy sharing knowledge and having discussions with other students. 

Sleep is very important, you won’t remember anything if you didn’t rest before an exam.  I also drink lots of water to stay refreshed and hydrated and lastly on the day of the exam I do breathing exercises and pray, that helps to calm me down before I tackle the paper.”

“What works for me is that I tutor other students, I find that the more I explain to others the more I also understand.  I study alone but we also form groups during free periods to go through past exam papers and discuss problems and challenges – if we can’t solve a problem as a group we then ask the lecturer for assistance. 

I study every night when I come back from work around 11 pm until 1 in the morning.  I like to multitask and keep busy so I don’t get stressed easily. 

I drink lots of water to stay refreshed and because I have prepared for the exam I go into the exam room with confidence.”
