Here are some test taking tips to help you get better scores.

  • Do easy problems first, even if it means doing the last question at the start. If you run out of time you will get more points for the unanswered problems.
     
  • Never leave an answer blank. Put down something, since most teachers will give partial credit. Even just rewriting the question and guessing at an answer can often get you some points.
     
  • Always read the question more than once. Never read a question once or skim it to answer it faster. Read it 2-3 times to make sure you know what is being asked. You can waste a lot of time and points answering the wrong question.
     
  • Keep hydrated and nourished. If you are allowed to have water or a snack, be sure to bring it. You will do much better on a test if you are not hungry or thirsty.
     
  • Use the restroom before the test. Don't lose points having to take a bathroom break. Try to reduce the amount of water you drink before a test.
     
  • Come prepared with extra pencils and paper. Fresh erasers are also important. You never know when you will need it.
     
  • Dress in layered clothing, so if you are hot or cold you can adjust to it.
     
  • Don't be afraid to ask questions during a test. If a question is not clear, ask the teacher for help. They will be more than happy to help you out. Teachers can make mistakes too.
     
  • Don't ever try to be the first person to finish a test. You don't get any more points for being a show off and finishing first. Use all the time given. If you have extra time, go over the questions again more carefully to find costly mistakes.
     
  • It goes without saying, but come fully prepared and study hard. See my advice on How to Do Well in School for more info.
