Exam Motivation



Introduction


I know that you're probably thinking, "I don't need motivation." But what about all those teenagers who are struggling with exams? They feel bad enough without having to deal with additional stressors like studying. Don't worry—I have some awesome tips for how to motivate yourself so that you can pass your exam!


Exam Motivation for Teenagers


Exam motivation is a key part of exam preparation. It's not just about studying, but also about how you feel about the exam itself.


The first step to achieving your goal is knowing that it's attainable and worth pursuing. The second step is finding out what motivates you in general—

  • What makes your heart beat faster when something exciting happens?
  • What makes those butterflies flutter inside your tummy?
  • How will this course help you grow as an individual, if at all?


Once we've identified some areas where we want improvement (or simply want to feel good about ourselves), then it's time for some self-reflection:

  • What do I like doing most in life?
  • Is there anything here that could be used as inspiration for future decisions or actions?
  • Why does this subject matter so much to me right now; why am I excited about learning more details about certain topics related?"


1. Create a positive environment




·        Create a positive environment

·        Set goals and make plans


·        Be positive about your own abilities and strengths, as well as the exam itself. If you have time to study, then use it wisely! You can also make changes to your studying habits to help improve your performance on this test—for example, if you find yourself losing focus easily during the day or evening, try breaking up studying sessions into smaller chunks throughout the day rather than doing everything all at once in one sitting. This will give each session more focus and concentration than if you were cramming everything into one big block of time (which may not even be necessary!).


·        Be positive about having an exam coming up: Don’t get stressed out by how much work needs to get done beforehand; instead use those extra hours wisely by getting excited about taking this step forward in life!


2. Stay positive yourself


One of the best ways to stay positive is by thinking about your exam as a chance to learn and grow. You may not be able to control everything that happens in an examination, but if you can keep this mindset then it will make things much easier for yourself.


·        Don't worry about what other people are doing - It's important not to let any other students' thoughts affect how well prepared you feel or how confident in yourself they seem when they walk into their exams. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses; no one else knows exactly what sort of questions they'll face! So don't worry too much about how others do at all—instead focus on improving your own performance and preparing well so that when the time comes around again next year (or whenever), there won't be any surprises!


·        Stay positive within yourself - Being positive doesn’t mean being arrogant or self-centered; rather think positively about who *you* are as opposed *to* any other possible outcome (e.g., failing). For example: “I am capable enough at this point so even if I fail my exam tomorrow due only partly due lack thereof knowledge base related topics covered therein therein... I still believe myself capable enough yet again next year regardless whatever happens here present momentary period."


3. Ask for help if you need it


·        Ask for help if you need it. If a friend has the knowledge to answer a question on a test, ask them! Your parents may also be able to give advice or point out areas where they think you can improve your grades.


·        Ask your teacher or counselor if they could help with any of your exam prep work in advance of taking an exam. They may be able to send some extra materials home with you so that when the time comes for taking the actual test (or at least one section), everything is ready for success!


4. Set attainable goals for yourself


Setting goals for yourself is a good way to keep yourself motivated. But it’s important that you set attainable goals and not ones that are too high or too low. The goal should also be specific, so that you know exactly what needs to be done in order for the goal to be achieved.

The following tips can help:


·        Set realistic targets – if your aim is something like “I want my life savings of $10 000 by the end of next year” then this isn't going help much because there's no way anyone could realistically achieve that goal within one year! If instead, think about setting up smaller achievable targets such as saving $50 every month until they reach their larger target (and then continue saving at least 5% of their salary).


·        Make sure your target isn't too vague – try not using terms like 'dreams' or 'ambitions' when discussing your goals with others; these tend not only make people's eyes glaze over but often lead them down paths where they have no idea where they're going! Instead try something more concrete like "I hope I'll earn enough money this year so I can buy myself an iPhone XIV". This kind  of language makes things easier for both parties involved - both parties know exactly what needs doing before anything else happens."


5. Learn from others who have done well in exams


If you want to do well in exams, learn from people who have done so.


For example: The best way to learn is by reading books and listening to lectures. I would recommend that you read as much of the textbook as possible before the exam so that when it comes time for questions, you will already know most of what is being asked. It’s also important not just because it helps your brain remember things better but because if someone asks something similar on another day then they can give him/her an idea of what he/she should expect (e.g., “You might see this type of question again later on in this book or class). Lastly, try not to take notes during class because this will only slow down your learning process instead of speeding it up!


6. Have a pre-exam routine that works for you


·        Set a routine that works for you.

·        Be consistent with it.

·        Do not stress about it! If you are not sure what to do, ask your teacher or friends or parents for advice.


You can motivate yourself to study and pass your exam with these tips!


·        Be positive.

·        Stay positive yourself.

·        Ask for help if you need it!

·        Set attainable goals for yourself and work hard to achieve them, but don't get frustrated if they're not reached on time (or even at all).

·        Learn from others who have done well in exams, but also keep in mind that every student is different so learning how they did things might not work for your own situation.

·        Have a pre-exam routine that works best for YOU!
