Passing the Basic Education Certificate Examination of the West African Examination Council is not as difficult as it may seem. All you need to do is to prepare adequately for the exams.
Passing the exams will increase your chances of getting into your preferred senior high school. The computerized school selection and placement system use raw scores to place candidates in various senior high schools in the country.
To be able to get your first choice, you require hitting a high raw score to increase your chances to get placed in your school of choice.
Here are tips on how to pass the BECE.
Find a quiet place to study
Your surroundings can make a huge difference when you are trying to study. Usually, learning in your dorm room is not the best choice. Find a place to study that is quiet. Often, the library is the best location. If you have to learn in your dorm, put in earplugs or headphones.
By doing this, you can increase your chances to pass your exams and get good grades.
Attend all classes
Going to senior high school is a real commitment. If you are thinking about getting an education, you need to make sure you have enough time to attend classes and do your homework. You might have to make some changes to your schedule and talk to your family before enrolling in school.
Revise your notes before any test
When taking a test, remember that it is just a test. Many people get intimidated by difficulties, thinking that they are more than they are. They are supposed to be a review of what you have already learned in your class. Having confidence in yourself and studying well can help you do well on them.
Build a good relationship with teachers
Try to develop excellent relationships with all your professors. You can get the most out of your classes if you talk to your professor. You should ask them about your class if you require help. Having a good relationship with your professors will mean better grades and opportunities, so do not forget their importance in your success.
Now the day of the BECE exam is here. By following a few mental, physical, and psychological strategies, you can get an even higher score. Here are some basic tips on how to pass your BECE.
Clearly, what you do on this day can make or break your BECE grade!
Wake up early so that you do not need to rush through having breakfast and getting ready.
Check the venue and time of the exam to make sure that you have not confused the day/time/venue.
Have a balanced breakfast and eat nothing risky (probably not the best day to have a super-hot curry!). Bananas are always a good option.
Before leaving home, check that you have everything that you will need – ID, stationery, venue of the exam, etc.
Head to the exam with plenty of time. A lot of unexpected events can happen on your way there, and you do not want to be late!
If there are people around who are panicking, avoid them. They are not doing you any favor!
Go to the toilet before the exam starts. Exams can be quite long and there is no time to waste.
Remember to write your index number on the exam paper. You would not believe how many people have forgotten to do it!
Read all the questions carefully before starting, and quickly plan how much time to allocate to each.
Start answering the questions that you feel most confident about. There is no need to answer the questions in order.
If your brain freezes, just start writing anything, and you will soon start remembering more details.
Don’t spend more time than you planned on a particular section/question, or you might run out of time to answer other questions and gain those extra marks! Also, leave any questions that you are unsure about for the end.
Don’t be afraid to ask the examiner if you are not clear on a question.
Use every minute of the exam and if you have time left, review your answers before handing back the paper.
Stay calm, you have done your homework and have nothing to fear!
