Have you ever felt scared when you get back your test papers? (like me during my school days) Well, that means that you did not put in your best efforts. Here are some tips to boost you up.
Revise: Revise for 3 hours at least for 1 subject each day. Stop thinking about playing or relaxing. Concentrate on your studies. Must revise for around 3 weeks before exams starts.
Drink More Water: I know you wouldn't believe this but it is true. Scientist say that drink more water helps you to think better.
Maintain Good Health: You must maintain in good health 6 weeks before exams starts. Don't eat oily food or food that are bad for your health. Stop eating snacks and sweets too.
Excise Regularly: Excising helps you to maintain good health and will keep you awake and pump more oxygen to your brain making it think better.
Listen Attentively To Your Teachers:
Well, teachers some times give tips and something that is in your test papers. If you listen well, you maybe pick up something you don't know.
Think That Studying Is Fun And It Is Like A Game: If you think that studying is fun in your mind, you will remember more things. Treat it like a game. But don't lose in that game. Have you lost to a easy game before? Well, then think that it is a kind of like game where you must absorb as much knowledge as possible in 6 weeks and remember as much thing as possible too and put them in good use in your test.
Set Your Mind To Get Good Results: Don't think about your games yet. Study hard and tell yourself "I can achieve better if I work harder and there are just a few days more until it ends. I can make it."
Study What Exams Are Coming First: If you study others too, you will feel a lot of pressure on you. So just study for 4 hours for what exam is coming the next time.
Studies Come First: Well, if you are going out to play or something else, forget about it because it is study time. Unless you are really wanting to go out, then you can. But do not go out for too long because it will spoil your appetite for studying. Think about it again when you go out. If this time you get bad results, will your parents let you out again? I don't think so.
Believe In Yourself: Have trust in your ability to get much better results. You will love this feeling even when you are scared. Don't be afraid that you will sure get low marks. I got this feeling once. During primary 3 I was afraid I will fail my science. But I was wrong. I got 99.5/100. Isn't that cool?
Ask Your Teachers: Ask your teachers which are the tested topics and which are much more important.
Hardwork: Well, hardworking does not mean that you just study and study. You must also learn to understand everything. Concentrate. A bit of hardwork concerns the difference between victory and defeat.
Eat Your Breakfast: Scientist can shown that students who eat breakfast perform better than the others.
Must Not Be Self-Sufficient: Well, if you are self-sufficient, you will not keep studying and will lose up behind.
Challenge yourself: Tell yourself that you must defeat the top person in your class or level. Work hard for it, if you have a girlfriend and she is more clever than you or you admire her, You must beat her! You must not let anyone defeat you.
Well, that's all you need to learn about. Mark my words and you will score better. If not, prepare for the worst.

Attributes of Good Listening

"listening involves hearing, sensing, interpretation, evaluation and response"

Good listening is an essential part of being a good leader. You cannot be a good leader unless you are a good listener. You as a leader must be very aware of the feedback you are receiving from the people around you. If you are not a good listener, your future as a leader will be short. I might add that being a good listener is a skill important in many other settings. For example, being a good listener will enhance your social relationships of all types, marriage, dating, parties, work, etc.

Have you ever stopped to think that we require courses and training in our education in speaking and writing, but not in listening? Why not? Are such skills important? Yes! Can you or I improve our listening capacity through purposive efforts? Again, the answer is clear: yes! Do we know what it takes to be a good listener? Another, yes. Why do we leave the learning of good listening skills to hard-earned experience or chance? Probably, the only answer is tradition. The people who established "reading, writing and arithmetic" as the content of American schools did not recognize the need for other skills such as listening. And even today, how many parents will insist that their child develop good listening skills through training in schools or elsewhere? All to few!
