4. Start with chapters / topics which you have read before
5. For chapters that you have never touched, just try to focus on a few important topics.
6. Focus more on the type of questions that carry more weightage in the exam.
7. For topics that seem to be less important, make sure that at least you know basic concepts.
8. If the subject includes diagrams e.g Biology or Formulars e.g mathematics, try to draw them/ solve a few sums.
9. Do not waste much time on chapters which are very much technical and complex.

Is It Good To study A Night before Exams ?
I am quite sure that if you ask 10(ten) different people these Same question, you are likely to get different answers. In my point of view, I will share my point of view on the question,
It’s not news that night study is important in learning fast a 90-minute study can significantly help boost your brain power.
But if you want to cement new knowledge in your brain, recent research demonstrates that a good night study has a significant impact on your ability to retain.
Giving your mind the brain power it needs is important if you want to do well in your exams. If you’ve left studying due to several problems, the day before the exam is your golden opportunity, if not your exam day; is likely to be compare to judgement day. So I will say; Yes!!
Is it bad to stay up all night before an exam or test ?
The best thing to do the night before the exam is to get a good night sleep, so you have the sharpest memory when it counts most. … DON’T pull an all-nighter before an exam.
Probably a day before the exam, yes you may do that. Not getting enough rest a night before the exam would be harmful for your body and brain. Remember that “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”
For those students who will not skimmed through the book in a whole term or semester, I recommend to study until you get tired and you feel you are at the point of dozing off or starting to not remember what you are studying.
Once you have reach that point you need to take a nap for 30 to 45 minutes.
But make sure you wake up and start studying again though because if you get lazy and fall back asleep… UH OH!,(This is a point i will begin to hear; my village people hate me!.. Lol). wake up early and study.!!
