How to Prepare for Exams in a Short Space of Time [5 Easy Steps]

Exams times can be stressful if you did not make good preparation, but you can still do it within a short space of time. Here are 5 easy steps to crack it during exam times.

Step 1

Chart a timetable of available study time. Look at the time you have available and what your outside responsibilities are. Calculate the number of hours you will have available to study. Chunk out study periods of a minimum of two hours at a time. Longer periods can get too tiring so be careful of this. Take breaks. Without breaks you may lose focus and not learn as much as you think you might in long cram sessions.

Step 2

Review prior course materials and focus on what you know. If you are cramming for an exam it is not likely that you will be able to digest and learn a large amount of new material. It is best to start by looking over any old exams, study guides passed out and lecture notes. Review these for trends of topics and subjects that are talked about frequently. Focus on getting those topics covered first.

 Step 3

Write down subjects and topics that you are unfamiliar with. Learning new material will be the toughest task in a short amount of time. Take the topics list and if possible review your course materials to try to gain an idea over which topics might be tested on. Typically these are ones that have the largest amount of coverage in your text. Don’t spend a lot of time on text readings that are small compared to larger ones. Make a calculated decision about which to study.

Step 4

Study in a good environment. If possible leave home and head to a library or place that fewer distractions. Do not try to study with the TV on or with music blaring. Sit in a straight chair and never have a study session. Even if you have studied like this before, you are now on an intensified deadline that requires intense measures for success.

Step 5

Employ study techniques such as repetition, flash cards and mnemonics. For repetition, sit with your notebook and write over and over what you need to know. For example repeatedly write out the names of important persons you need to study. Draw flash cards with info on them and go over them constantly. Come up with silly rhymes or word associations to help you remember points.

Free digital training for 1 million youth in RSA

The City of Johannesburg and Microsoft South Africa have joined forces to train one million disadvantaged residents, free, on digital skills and literacy over a period of five-years. This free digital training will commence in August 2016.

The City’s Mayor Parks Tau made the announcement in Johannesburg, saying registration commences early in August and the curriculum is expected to begin in September. The initiative is termed JoziMS1million.

He said 800 000 of the one million to benefit from the programme will be youth between 18 and 34 years of age, and the rest will be those above 35 but still need to access the job market at entry level.
The curriculum will cover five key topics including Computer Skills; The Internet, Cloud Services and the World Wide Web; Productivity Programmes (Microsoft Office); Computer Security and Privacy, and Digital Lifestyles.

Mayor Tau said the partnership was motivated by the realisation that youth would need digital skills to break barriers to entry into the job market.

He said this is a result of continuous engagements that the city has been conducting with various private sector companies.

The Mayor said reports show that by 2012, 50% of the already existing jobs required basic digital skills, and this trend is expected to increase to 77% by 2022.

He said the programme will be using the Vulindlele Jozi portal to register the 800 000 youth. For those above 35, the Mayor said she will go to the centres provided by the city for registrations.
“We are breaking down barriers for the people of Johannesburg to get these jobs that will be available in the market that require skills.

“The investments on the overall project come from the City of Johannesburg and Microsoft, the participants are not required to pay a fee. This is very important for those people who cannot afford to pay fees to acquire skills,” said Mayor Tau.

Microsoft has invested about R200 million in the programme, and the company’s Managing Director Zoaib Hoosen told SAnews that the initiative is a product of an engagement that the city had with Microsoft in the last three months, to see what is it that they can merge for the benefit of residents and to grow the economy.

He said without the partnership, both the City and Microsoft would not be able implement this programme and achieve the outcomes.

As the world continues to evolve more digitally, Hoosen says many companies are moving towards the digital environment and it will soon become a basic requirement for job seekers to have basic digital skills when applying for jobs. This is the case for entrepreneurs as well.

“Certainly, the physical world and the digital world are coming together, and I think it is a very important channel to market. Everyone in business has to make sure that it [their product] resonates with the customers and audiences you are trying to reach. It is a platform that one cannot ignore,” he said.

He said, in his observation, youth who use digital technology for business purposes are making huge amounts of profits, and successful businesses are investing in their products.

“Young people around ages of 19 and 20 are starting businesses on the basis of digital platforms… new industries are going to be formed, new jobs are going to come about,” said Hoosen.
He said for more youth to be able to exploit the digital revolution, they have to acquire skills.

The announcement ceremony was graced by Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, who said he will be an evangelist across the country preaching the works of the City of Johannesburg and encouraging other cities to be innovative in changing the lives of their residents.

“Smart cities, smart towns, need to go beyond just provision of services to their citizens. They now need to move into improving the economic life of the city, and by so doing having a positive impact on the lives of the people who live in the city,” said the Deputy President.

Applauding the city, Deputy President Ramaphosa said: “This is truly economic democracy at work and opening the corridors of freedom of the city of Johannesburg. I have seen how many of these initiatives are living up to this dream, to this concept of economic democracy. What I saw today is how Johannesburg is unblocking the entrepreneurial capabilities and the spirit of the people of Johannesburg through provision of skills.”

He said Johannesburg is the city where people can come and have their dreams fulfilled. He said he was glad that the city was giving people the tools to work on achieving their dreams.

“I have categorised Johannesburg as a smart city, an intelligent city that is run by people who have a vision… who also want to take the place and its people to places. This is the city on the move, the city that is going somewhere,” he said.
