    Try the question first then look at the mark scheme. Why would you do it any differently?

    It would make the process faster but wasn't sure if it would be effective or not.

    Which subject? With maths for example, doing the question yourself instead of looking at a solution is so much more beneficial.

    Looking at the answer beforehand would teach you to copy rather than looking at the information in front of you and trying to process it...

    ya I understand but looking at the answers and solving you can get along with the question pattern and the specific answers they want.

    By looking at the answers first you're really not solving anything yourself. Try it first without looking at the answers so you can be self-critical and learn where to improve.
