How am I reading for Waec? Do I just pick a book, glance through and then conclude that I am done studying the topic? Am I reading for my exams just the way I go through novels? Do I even understand what I am studying? These are questions you should ask yourself.
Some Waec candidates study for serious exams just the way they read Newspapers. At the end of the day, they will begin to say things like, “Why did I fail even when I studied very hard?” Some would say, Waec is wicked and Neco doesn’t love us.
It all boils down to the fact that you never had a planned reading life. The best way to study is to be focused and form notes while reading. With good notes, you will have something to fall back to when exams are very close.
Now, you may be asking, how do I form notes while studying and what are the things I should Jot down? This is what I shall quickly discuss here.
Before you start reading, ensure that you are in your best reading environment. Go somewhere that is best conducive for you. Also, ensure that you have materials like a pen, jotter, textbooks, water, past questions and a calculator if necessary.
Any time you come across points that are worthy of note or likely exam questions, quickly pick your pen and jotter. Put them down the way you will remember.

When exams are close, you don’t need to be going through your textbooks over again. All you need is to bring out your jotter and glance through the points you have jotted already. With this, you will be able to revise a whole lot of stuff within a few hours.
Apart from jotting important facts, it is good to cultivate the habit of writing while studying. It helps you remember more of what you have studied.
