Whether it’s pre-algebra or geometry, history or Shakespeare, bio or
chemistry, there are a few cinchy ways to see if you’ve got your next quiz or
test in the bag. Here are six signs you can totally rock this out—and a few
ways to help ya set the curve, as well.
Hands in the air
You know the answer to every question your teacher asks, even if you
don’t raise your hand right away. The more questions you put your mind to, the
better position you’ll be in come test time.
Figure it out
When you get a Q wrong, you can figure out on your own where you made a
mistake and correct it to get the right answer. Remember the mistakes you’ve
made in the past and endeavor to avoid them in the future.
Even if you don’t know the right answer, you can eliminate the wrong
ones through context. Three cheers for process of elimination! The next time
you come across multiple choice questions for homework, take the time to
explain to yourself why the wrong answers are wrong instead of simply picking
out the correct one.
You have an easy time helping your classmates understand the theories
you’re learning in class right now, and the more you teach, the better you
understand it yourself.
You find your homework not hard, not easy, but challenging. Hard, and
you won’t know the answers come test time—or will run out of time figuring them
out. Easy, and you will rush through the problems and make careless mistakes.
Challenging, you can find the answer with a little thought.
You’re not nervous when you think about the test. Nerves can paralyze
your brain, making it hard to recall information you knew minutes before.
Channel your nervous energy into “I can do this!” statements.
