As with all exams, planning your time is very important. There’s nothing worse than failing an exam because you run out of time to answer all the questions. So, make sure you know exactly how long you have to do the exam.

  • How much time do you have for the test?
  • How many texts do you have to read?
  • Work out how much time you can spend on each text.
  • Leave a few minutes at the end to check your answers.

Sometimes we all need more time when doing exams.  Have you ever finished early in an exam?  Have you ever not had enough time?

There were many times when I completed the test early, but there were times when I was slow and even the slowest in the examination room. But I still try my best to get good grades.

Sometimes I finish tasks earlier. And then several times I check my answers. And often I notuce mistakes. And I recify my answer. So few times later I have read an interesting article about peak of working our brain. And I found out that our brain works better after two hours as we wake up. And everyday, this 2 hour is my morning routine. I fell that my brain works better after this. Correspondinly I guarantee this method, if you will have exams next day.

I always finish on time. I don't even remember that I finished late once. But sometimes I finish earlier than it used to be. I usually plan my time and organize it so i finish and revise just on time.

I have finished a great deal of exams early and some I have been the last one writing, but it all depends on what kind of test it is that I am doing.

In my Statal Test (ICFES for Colombia, It's similar to TOELF, etc..)....I finished very early, because I planned my time before doing it, besides ''The English Part'' was about read a text, and using this advices, I finished on time and with good grades. :)

Time management is my weakness. Unfortunately, I often finish the last one. Sometimes, the time is not enough to answer all questions.
