Tips and Tricks in Facing the Midterm Exam

Yogyakarta (9/11) – The presence of special moments where you must sit still and focus on responding to the lecturer’s questions is one of the most horrible experiences in a student’s life. Moments like this typically occur at least twice a semester, namely when the UTS and UAS exams for the midterm and final semesters, respectively, are given. For those of you who have just started college, you should be aware that UTS is typically held in the middle of the semester, while UAS is typically held at the end. In any case, the Mid-Semester Exam (UTS) proved to be quite dangerous for students. How come?

The Mid-Semester Examination (UTS), even though it takes place in the middle of the semester, has a significant impact on your Achievement Index in the future. You must, of course, prepare yourself as much as you can to later be able to easily complete the questions for the lecturer’s Mid-Semester Examination (UTS). Many current students as well as new students experience severe panic attacks right before the Mid-Semester Examination (UTS). This is because they are afraid that they won’t be able to answer the questions on the Mid-Semester Examination (UTS) correctly and completely.

The Mid-Semester Examination (UTS) is a great opportunity to assess how well you have learned the science material that has been taught in class. On this occasion, MinGov will try to help by offering some advice for managing the college UTS so that you can run the Mid-Semester Exam (UTS) as well as possible. check it out!

1. Study
Studying is necessary if you hope to succeed when dealing with UTS. Use the overnight racing system (SKS) sparingly and don’t just rely on luck, you know! Since there are many UTS materials that you have never read or do not understand, you can imagine if the study time only includes one night before the UTS implementation. Even though you read the material all night, you are exhausted the next day, making it difficult for you to concentrate on the UTS questions. Therefore, you must prepare in advance to understand any materials that may be released during UTS.

2. Establish a timetable.
Utilize effective time management to make studying while facing UTS as easy as possible. The ability to balance studying, playing, and other daily activities are necessary. For instance, finish the tasks and agenda before UTS so you can divide your time fairly before you play games or hang out with your friends.

3. Look after your health
Many students typically feel exhausted the night before UTS because they worked too hard to prepare for a passing UTS score. But even if you put in all the effort—from studying to regularly completing practice questions—if your health isn’t in good shape, you won’t be able to answer the UTS questions accurately. To maintain good health and be in top physical condition to face UTS, eat healthful foods, take vitamins, and exercise frequently.

4. Write Brief Notes
You should be aware that the purpose of this tiny note is not to cheat, but rather to help you remember the information more easily, particularly from the grid that your lecturer provides for each of the courses you are enrolled in. Typically, students will find it simpler to remember, especially with the system of having the lecturer’s material rewritten. At the very least, you will recall and comprehend the writing points that you made from the source material.

5. Pray
The most significant action you can take after all your previous efforts is to pray. Don’t forget to pray to God Almighty after you have put all your effort into being well-prepared for UTS so that you will have the confidence to face UTS.
