This is the exam season, and currently over 140,000 high school students are preparing for the NCEA and New Zealand examinations.
Having many advices on the internet, the Research Specialist sat in The Project to explain simple simple tips to pass the exams.
Karen Boyes loves to study, she learned to improve the art of studying – and she was more than happy to share her knowledge on Monday night.
"You do not have to be clever to pass the test, you just have to know how to remember – it's about going through what you need to know."
He says that the worst place to learn is your bed.
"The bed is for sleeping." When you learn on your bed, or fall asleep, or the brain says, "Oh, let me learn."
A place to learn is any space designated for a place of study – be it a kitchen table or space on the floor, your brain knows when you go to this place, time to learn.
Mrs. Boyes also says that there are some great brain products that will help in conducting exams.
Nuts, berries, spinach, bananas and tomatoes are great food for the brain.
It also encourages those who learn to drink a lot of water because you automatically give in to stress when you're dehydrated.
