Tips on how a Kid can Ace their Exams and Reach the Next Level

We know that as a parent, it must be difficult for you at times to cope with your child's education. We are often so engrossed in our responsibilities and commitments that we fail to guide them when needed and only question them when they need to do better in their exams.

How often have you scolded your child when they brought a 'C' in their report card? Have you ever thought that instead of building tension around them to excel all the time, you could have given them some tips to ace their exams and reach the next level?

If your answer is no and the reason behind it is cluelessness, well, you are welcome to read our article that explores and provides tips to all the parents and seekers who want their kids or themselves to ace their exams and reach the pinnacle of success!

Use study guides in the right way

Study guides often provide a proper planner that helps students plan their time on more important topics or subjects that need immediate attention. By doing this, they can avoid doing repetitive things and focus on doing things that they are weak at. The students can avail themselves of these study guides from their teachers or classmates who score well in their exams.

Periodic evaluation through tests and mock papers

Tests are an effective way for a teacher to understand what her students know and need to know. However, tests aren't just for the teachers but for the students as well as they can identify their weak and strong areas, learn from their mistakes and feel confident while appearing for final exams. Tests and mock papers help students feel equipped with sufficient knowledge to ace their exams without thinking about the need to cheat.

Focus on studying for exams BEFORE starting homework

Homework is important because there is a timeline, and the children must complete it to get a good overall grade. But often, due to this, they skip studying for the actual examinations. This can be handled with the help of a very simple trick. You can set your planner so that you make room for the first half an hour to forty minutes for self-studying and then continue with your daily homework. This will keep both your homework and preparation for exams on track!

Encourage group studies

Students often pick up topics more effectively when they learn with their peers. Group studies often create accountability to study and an interest where can learn with their friends or classmates. Constant brainstorming often helps them address their doubts and understand topics more clearly.

Bring variation in the study routine

Often the children get bored studying the same subject or topic for a long stretch. This is monotonous and can affect the productivity of your child. Therefore, you must bring variation in their study routine to avoid this. You can do this by helping them to switch between subjects when they feel bored. They can start with mathematics, read some history, solve some grammar questions, recite some vocabulary, and finish their routine with science diagrams.

Focus on 'writing' more than just reading, watching, or typing

Due to COVID and increased globalisation, many kids can access gadgets such as computers, laptops, smartphones, tablets, etc. The more digital tools are introduced in their lives, the more they lose touch with pen, pencil, and paper. Studies suggest that people who read and write can keep things in their memory for a longer time as it helps them interact with the material directly and minutely. Therefore, encourage your child to stop being dependent on digital media and start writing again.

Put extra emphasis on sleep, not vice-versa

There is a myth among us that we can score more if we sleep less. However, it is the other way around. Many students stay awake late at night, revising their lessons because they feel it is the gateway to 'A's. Researchers have said that studying for seven hours per night is crucial during exam periods as it helps them retain memory and make room for newer topics. Therefore, allow your child to sleep (not less or more) to perform better in their exams.


To sum it up, it is understandable that every parent wants their child to excel in the future. The stepping stone to this dream is to pass exams with flying colours. Although it is good to have big expectations, one should never let them pressure their children too much. Every parent must look after their child's physical and mental well-being during the exam period and motivate them with small words of appreciation and encouragement every now and then. Small gestures from parents can make a big difference in your child's life!
