Term 4 - November Exams and Memos

Best Study help for 2020 exams

For most learners, it is difficult to focus for more than a few moments on any task, and that’s quite natural, due to their curiosity and energy.

However, concentration is essential for studying, for homework and the completion of any task for the November Exams (2019)

Adults can improve their concentration with special exercises; however, with students, one needs to use slightly different strategies. You can help your child increase her/his concentration in various ways.

Divide exam papers into Smaller Tasks

The whole exam may require too much concentration and discipline. It would be a good idea to divide it into smaller sections over 10 - 20 minutes at a time while practising.

A whole exam requires time, dedication and focus, might seem intimidated and overwhelming and can awaken reluctance to tackle. A small part seems more natural to carry through, and there is less resistance.

Studying at the same time every day

Repeating the same activity every day at the same hour, eventually, turns it into a habit. If your child sits down for homework or exams every day at the same hour, after a while, when the hour comes, there will be less effort required to focus. The mind will know that the time for studying has arrived, and would be more willing to study.

Reducing Distractions

Unless engaged in something they like, children might find it difficult to screen out distractions. You need to keep the environment where they learn or study, as distraction-free as possible. Be especially wary of television, loud music, noises, and anything else that might distract attention.

Television and Cell Phones

It is not a good idea to watch TV while doing exams or practising for it since this distracts the attention. Text messages also interrupt concentration. It is recommended not to read text messages or use cell phones while studying.

Give Them Enough Physical Activity

Some physical activity, like playing and some sports, between study and questions, provides a way to vent out extra energy. This would help your child to be less restless, offset boredom and make it easier to focus.

Give Them Enough Physical Activity

Some physical activity, like playing and some sports, between study and questions, provides a way to vent out extra energy.

Giving children too many questions and involving them in too many activities can be overwhelming and tiring for their brains. As a parent, you should allow them enough time for pleasure and fun, so they don’t feel too pressurised. Offer a period of play/doing a non-academic task that they enjoy, as a reward for completing a section of their study timetable.

Enough Rest

Ensure that the child has enough sleep at night, and also, some rest during the day.

Always start with June exams

Beginning with March exams set a baseline of the work your child has done. It will show you where he or she is still struggling. Look at the memo at the end of each paper and mark only the correct answers. The wrong answers don’t mark. Psychology plays a huge role in any child.

The wrong answers need to be worked on first. Keep a separate paper and example to your child the response from the memo.

November exams

Starting with the November exams will take all the above steps into action.

Start with Home Language first (HL) then also do the First Addition Language (FAL) and then the rest of the subjects. Mathematics, Social Sciences etc.
