Test yourself in advance to ace the real exam.

When you create a test of your own before the actual test, it directs your focus to the essence of the material. It helps you understand the larger context within which the material fits and also identify weaknesses in your perception of the topic. Finally, by replicating the exact exam conditions of your real test, you build confidence in your abilities to ace the real exam.


  1. Before an exam, interview, or presentation, create a possible list of questions on the content.
  2. Once you feel confident about your understanding of the topic, answer the questions you have prepared for yourself.
    Make sure that the conditions of this test are similar to the actual exam you are preparing for. If your actual exam is conducted with a time constraint and in a quiet room, then emulate these exact conditions during your pre-test. 
  3. With the help of these questions and answers, teach the content to your peers or family members.
    Once you are done explaining, question your audience to check whether your explanation was clear.
