As the public exam is fast approaching, we need to be well-prepared and 100% ready in order to get a good result. Therefore, I'd like to talk about my own personal preparation for the journey to the HKDSE.
First of all, I will keep myself focused in every lesson. Being attentive in class can help with a smoother revision. Take a Chemistry lesson for example, once I didn't concentrate fully in class and missed some basic concepts. I later had to spend a lot of time revising due to my lack of basic yet crucial knowledge. However, if I pay attention during lessons, I can understand the concepts in class so I won't have to spend so much time picking up something fundamental afterwards, which can save time and make the revision more efficient. Therefore, concentration in class is really vital!
Another thing that I do is to devise a revision timetable. This could help me have better control of my revision progress and ensure I am able to finish everything before the exam. Some people are unable to follow the schedule completely, but at least you can know how much time you have got and thus can have a better and more effective time management.
And lastly but most importantly, I always keep myself physically and mentally healthy. And to maintain a good health, doing sports and having enough sleep are the most direct ways. For me, I play basketball and rugby regularly. I work out 5 days a week. Sweating makes me feel great as it helps to take away dirt and toxin accumulated inside the body. Moreover, doing sports gives me a better circulation of blood which pumps me up and makes me more energetic. In addition, I sleep around 6-7 hours a night in order to avoid being tired all the time so that I can attend lessons in a more pleasant condition. All these acts contribute to a desirable spiritual condition during exams.
To conclude, not making significant changes deliberately and having sufficient preparation are my main strategies for preparing this do-or-die public exam, and I wish all F6 around the country much success for the upcoming HKDSE.
