During the Exam

1.) Carefully read the question without looking at the answer choices. After reading the question, briefly close the eyes and think what was written on this topic in your notes and textbook or what you have practiced/ learned earlier. At times, reading the choices first can mislead you to incorrect answers. Remember the questions are framed to separate wheat from chaff – such that students with inadequate preparation would be tempted to select wrong answers-also known as distracters. Distracters are nicely worded ‘correct looking’ choices which are never part of exam curriculum.

2.) First you should try to solve the problem since it proves to be much faster than method of elimination. If you cannot solve it, then try to eliminate couple of choices, and then proceed with answering that question (if the negative marking is 1/4 or 1/3 of a correct answer). The odds of answering correctly now are more than negative marking scheme (the chances of success with one choice elimination is 33.3% and two choice elimination is 50% for 4 choice exam). If all choices looks alien to you, do yourself a favour by quickly moving to next question.

3.) Be sure to read the end of the question i.e. words like Except, Not, Never, Always. Remember two negative phrases form one positive phrase. The choices that use words like ‘always’ and ‘never’ are most likely not the correct choice, however do confirm under which narrow circumstances such words are not suitable for an answer.

4.) Further to point no. 3 above, also look at the end of choice if one of the choices is ‘All of the above’ and ‘None of the above’. In a fast paced world, sometimes we go too fast in selecting answers to repent later that speed should not be at the cost of correctness. Spend time to observe if two choices are correct, then it is most probably ‘All of the above’ and likewise for ‘None of the above’.

5.) Be aware that some answers (especially formulas, units, value of constants) for the problem can be available elsewhere in the exam questions. This is quite true for online exams where such things are difficult to avoid. They are like ‘extra runs’ and you got to take them. Therefore just park such questions for review later.

6.) A couple of questions on the exam have choices almost looking like ‘twins’ i.e. two choices are identical except for a word or value. Most likely in such cases, the answer lies amongst those ‘twins’.

7.) When you feel the question look tricky or difficult, read the question twice. If you feel the correct choice is not given as one of the choices or two choices appear to be correct, select the best choice. Select the option that is more descriptive/ qualifying and closely related to the question. Checkout for grammatical clues to match the question. If your question is in the singular then the answer might be also in the singular form and likewise. The answer should completely and directly address the question. In case the choice is only partly correct under specific narrow conditions, then it may not be the correct choice.

8.) Generally try to attempt theoretical questions first and then questions which needs calculation. Our human nature is such that if we attempt a few confident questions in the beginning then we feel charged with positive energy that in turn increases our efficiency and speed for the rest of the exam.

9.) Last but not the least, stay calm and composed during the exam. Be confident while taking the test. Do not panic if you have left questions unanswered as no one is perfect and many have to do that. Just make sure that the ones you have done are correct and you are able to get the target marks.

In nutshell, one can master the MCQ tests by knowing the subject thoroughly and practicing it under simulated conditions a number of times (more the better). If above rules are followed in right intense, one can certainly improve their performance in MCQ based exams.

Hi,

Great tips! One more essential point which everyone must follow is after finishing your paper, always recheck it. Sometimes, we don't get time for rechecking but from my personal experience i will recommend we should take out 5 - 10 mins for rechecking. I am sure you will find some corrections or edit to do.

Fantastic tips.

Let me add a few words to it.

If you come across a question, and you realize that you don't know the answer,
don't be afraid. Accept that you don't know it, go ahead with the other questions, you'll be fine, no stress build-up.

Focus on presentation. Handwriting should be great.

Maturity in putting forth your answer should be present,
because the one who checks your paper needs to be influenced (made interested).

All the best!

Another point to be remember that you should attempt all questions.
if in any question you dont know the answer ,try to write something close to the answer of question for this purpose use your sense of humor.
this works really as i also done this in my winter 2013 exam and got grade A in that subject in which i was thought of B

Always think positive while examination and attempt only those questions which you are sure.
