1. MAKE A LIST OF YOUR WEAKEST SUBJECTS WHEN YOU WERE IN COLLEGE.
It’s important to give focus on the subjects that you had difficulties with during your college days. Remember, the exam comprises of different areas, and it’s not okay to set aside the subjects you are weak at.
2. CREATE A TIME TABLE.
You should, of course, set your goal. If you want to hit your target, you should finish doing everything at a given time. Put in your mind that you have minimal time to review the subjects you studied for four years. So, list down each subject that you have to evaluate and identify how long it will take you to study them.
3. KNOW THE FOCUS OF THE EXAM.
The Nursing and midwifery council have guidelines governing the conduct of licensing exams.Make sure you have the copy of it so you would know what subject areas you are going to study and how long you are going to spend reviewing them.
4. SPEND AT LEAST 1 TO 4 HOURS READING LECTURES.
Research shows that reading for at least an hour or two can activate brain cells. It also shows that doing so regularly could enhance retention. So if you want to remember them all that you studied about on the day of the examination, make sure that you get yourself used to reading for an hour or more.
5. DON’T MEMORIZE TOO MUCH.
Yes, there are some questions (especially in the subjects, History, and Math) that require you to memorize. But lemme tell you that almost 75% percent of the items are situational so instead of remembering, try understanding deeply the lectures you are reading. Retention is higher when you digest and relate what you learn to other concepts or ideas.
6. GET ENOUGH SLEEP, RELAX AND DON’T FORGET TO TAKE A REST.
Don’t stress yourself for the overnight reviews and all. If you fail to take a rest because of studying too much, you’ll make things worse. It is proven that a sound mind and a relaxed body can help people think and recall better.
7. DON’T TAKE GENERAL EDUCATION LIGHTLY.
Make sure you read over the general papers from semester till date in order to be conversant with some topics.
8. BUY A REVIEWER PAST QUESTION
This is what I strongly recommend guys! I bought a PASCO for General and MEDICAL AND SURGICAL NURSING before I took the test. The questionnaire and the answer key were provided. I read it but I found out that the answer key was wrong so I answered each question through the help of the internet. It was really helpful since the questions in the reviewer were the exact questions given when I took the board exam.
9. PREPARE EVERYTHING THAT YOU’LL NEED WEEKS BEFORE THE EXAMINATION.
It’s always better to prepare early, so I suggest that you prepare the pencils, erasers, calculators, identification cards,ruler and HANKY (use it when wiping the eraser dust on your paper) 2 or 3 weeks before the exam. You can’t afford to feel stressed or worried about the unavailability of these things days before the exam.
Of course, it’s always him who will decide your fate so keep on being “MAKULIT” and keep asking him to guide you not just on the date of the exam but throughout your life. You will need him even after passing the LET since you will have the most significant responsibility in the world. You’ll be a teacher. YOU WILL SHAPE THE FUTURE and to do it successfully; you’ll need his help— THE ONE WHO SHAPED THE WHOLE WORLD PERFECTLY.
