Question and answer
Which is the better strategy in essay type exams
Write down their key words, listings, etc, as they are fresh in your mind. Otherwise these ideas may be blocked (or be unavailable) when the time comes to write the later questions. [ This will reduce "clutching" or panic (anxiety, actually fear which disrupts thoughts). Set up a time schedule to answer each question and to review/edit all questions If six questions are to be answered in sixty
minutes, allow yourself only seven minutes for each If questions are "weighted", prioritize that into your time allocation for each question When the time is up for one question, stop writing, leave space, and begin the next question. The incomplete answers can be completed during the review time Six incomplete answers will usually receive more credit than three, complete ones Read through the questions once and note if you have any choice in answering questions Pay attention to how the question is phrased, or to the "directives", or words such as "compare", "contrast", "criticize", etc. See their definitions in "Essay terms" Answers will come to mind immediately for some questions Before attempting to answer a question, put it in your own words Now compare your version with the original. Do they mean the same thing? If they don't, you've misread the question. You'll be surprised how often they don't agree. Think before you write: Make a brief outline for each question Number the items in the order you will discuss them Get right to the point State your main point in the first sentence Use your first paragraph to provide an overview of your essay. Use the rest of your essay to discuss these points in more detail. Back up your points with specific information, examples, or quotations from your readings and notes Teachers are influenced by compactness, completeness and clarity of an organized answer Writing in the hope that the right answer will somehow turn up is time-consuming and usually futile To know a little and to present that little well is, by and large, superior to knowing much and presenting it poorly- when judged by the grade received. ]
