English Advice

January 9, 2023

Mrs. Burnett, an English teacher, said that in addition to various study techniques, getting a good night’s rest and eating a healthy breakfast can make a huge difference. “It’s hard to focus on an exam when your stomach is growling,” Burnett said. “Don’t stay up too late.  The material reviewed in the wee hours of the morning will likely not stay with your tired brain, so get some rest.”  

Burnett went on to talk about multiple-choice questions. “Come in with a plan for what to do if you don’t know the answer.  Doing ‘Eeny, meeny, miny, moe’ may waste precious time. Narrow down the choices as much as possible and then decide that you will always choose the one closest to the bottom or something like that. It can be a real time saver.”

“My last piece of advice is about writing. When it comes to on-demand, make sure you understand the expectations. Try to do a short outline to organize your thoughts. Remember, it is often it is better to write about a few specifics than to write down every possible example and not have time to proofread your work.  Make a plan and proofread.”
