Below is an essay on "exam tips" from Anti Essays, your source for research papers, essays, and term paper examples.

Exam tips:

• Read the question! It's well worth spending some time reading the whole paper and thinking about which questions you want to do. Then, answer the whole question and nothing but the question. Make sure you understand exactly what the question is asking you to do before you start writing

• If you can, stop at the end of each paragraph and read it over to make sure you're not wandering off the point or contradicting yourself. These are easy mistakes to make when you've found a question you like the look of on a subject you've revised well

• If there are competing explanations or theories on a phenomenon or event, you're expected to be able to state what they are and how they differ, but you don't need to know any specific names of analysts or writers associated with them - it's the ideas that matter, not the spokespeople

• Examiners understand that in exam conditions, it can be hard to recall facts that you know very well and hard to put them into coherent and fluent English. We don't expect the kind of polished, well-structured essay which is possible with coursework
