HELP- trouble with timing in exams Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi . For exams revise well, but in mocks and sometimes actual exams I mess up my timings in exams, so for example I spend too much time at the beginning, or too much time on a question I'm stuck on , then sometimes end up rushing or missing around two or three questions at the end of the paper. I really need some help with this issue , please share some techniques and any solutions that may help me with this issue for these SPECIFIC SUBJECTS if you can - Biology , Chemistry, Maths (stats) , Computer science.

    It really depends on you putting in effort to practise beforehand. When doing papers, time yourself. This is crucial, only then you could make changes to how long you should take on each question. In the exam, the marks roughly give you an idea of how much time you should take for each question.

    For Maths it's just a matter of doing questions and questions and practising. More than a million times even if your eyes bleed, carry on!
