How Can You Improve Your Test Scores?

By on March 31, 2013

Visualize yourself succeeding. By seeing yourself scoring well on your tests you attract all that you need to score well on tests. The ideas, people and circumstances helping you succeed in the classroom find you with greater ease once you begin visualizing persistently.

Be patient. Most people never give visualizing any real chance. Be persistent in seeing yourself scoring well on exams and you naturally become the person who improves their test scores and excels in the classroom.

Success is an inside job, meaning that to improve any area of your life you must do some inner clearing before you see lasting favorable outer results. Be disciplined in maintaining this approach of inner clearing and you will most certainly succeed with your studies.

Rest Up!

Get at least 8 to 10 hours of sleep each nigh to improve your focus and score higher on tests. Feeling fatigued only holds you back. You cannot succeed by coming from a tired, worn out place, because this type of enregy only holds you back, creating tired, worn out results.

Take naps during the day if you find it difficult to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night. Be at peace knowing that your increased sleep time will help you feel refreshed for your course load and exams.

Come from a Place of Power

This one is lost on virtually all students. Come from a place of power in all you do. Do not use force, meaning, those 22 hour marathon cram study sessions simply do not work. Eventually you lose almost all the information you intended to gain because force negates. The harder you try now the harder you need to try down the road. Understand?

Come from a place of power. Study for 2 to 4 hours daily and take many micro breaks during your work. This practice keeps your mind fresh and improves the likelihood that you will retain every bit of study materials which you review.

Take frequent breaks and rest well after your sessions. Review each word you read and slowly think through each concept to more easily retain information. The goal is to absorb knowledge like a sponge, not to force yourself to study and burn out.

Persistence Wins

You know who scores well on exams? The student who pays attention in class and hits their studies immediately after returning home after school. The student who pays attention in class and studies immediately upon returning home each day. This student persists, and wins, because this student develops good study habits over the long haul.

As you persistently acquire and retain information it becomes quite easy to score well on your exams. You will no longer forget what you need to remember because you will be studying and retaining information persistently.

Relax

As I noted before you must come from a place of power to succeed with taking tests. Force negates, and stressing out only blocks the answers you so crave. Take a chill pill. Relax. You are far more likely to test well when you are feeling good, calm and confident about your chances.

Tension blocks the solutions you need and feeling calm and confident, and peaceful, attracts to you the solutions or answers you need right now. Be at peace, take a few deep breaths, and relax. You will succeed much more quickly with your test-taking exploits if you shift your mindset before and during the test-taking process.

Detach a bit more from outcomes. Move to a place of knowing that you are well prepared. You will do fine.
