The Art of Exam Writing
When it comes to exams, studying and executing are very different skills. While students are constantly encouraged to do the former, they often struggle with the latter. It is very common to see students study everything they can and then spill what they have memorized onto a few pages. Unfortunately, this course of action often leaves students feeling that their grade is not reflective of the effort they invested. Studying and memorizing are not graded, execution on the day of the exam is.
Different types of exam questions require different kinds of answer strategies. Defining terms, short answers, and full essays are common ingredients of an undergraduate exam. While a strong answer to each will have similar components, students will learn how to effectively deal with each type of question on an exam.
Like all services from BridgesEDU, students will be shown what professors expect of them in university. These lessons will be conveyed by an individual who has graded and taught at the university level.
