10 Strategic Tips For Successful WASSCE Preparation



The 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) officially commenced today, August 16 in various examination centers across the West African Sub-region where candidates registered for Basketry, leather works, ceramics, Jewellery, Graphic Designs, Sculpture, Textiles and Picture Making sat for their Project Work.

The desire of all registered WASSCE candidates is to pass and come out with flying colors in all subjects.

During examination mood like this, many students become depressed, stressed and experience numerous migraines in the course of their studies and preparation for their exams.


As a professional teacher and an educationist, I believe that with strategic planning, good health, effective preparation and consistent learning, Candidates will be able to pass well and further their education to the tertiary level.


Although, the novel coronavirus distracted the academic calendars of various institutions, yet still, there’s the need for candidates to prepare effectively before sitting for their examination.


With this, Sintim Media outlines 10 strategic tips which will guide  WASSCE Candidates to prepare well and pass their examination successfully.

1. Give yourself enough time to study

Make a study schedule that fits your way of studying and do not leave anything for the last minute. While some students do seem to thrive on last-minute studying, often this way of partial studying is not the best approach for exam preparation. Write down how many exams you have, how many pages you have to learn, and the days you have left. Afterwards, organize your study habits accordingly.

2. Make sure your study space is well organized

Make sure you have enough space on your desk to spread your textbooks and notes. Ensuring that the room is sufficiently bright and your chair restful enough are also points to consider. Pay attention to details that can distract you and remove them from your study space. Make sure that you feel comfortable in your study space and that you are able to focus. For some individuals, this may mean complete silence, while for others listening to music helps. Some of us need complete order to focus, while others like to study in a more cluttered environment. Make sure your study space is friendly and pleasant so that you can fully concentrate.


3. Use flow charts and diagrams

Visual aids can be especially helpful when revising study material. At the start of a topic, write down everything you already know about the subject. Closer to the exam, transform your revision notes in a diagram. In that manner the visual remeberance can aid to your readiness considerably when taking the exam. Always try to develop a mental picture of what you’ve learnt in order to be able to recollect faster.

5. Engage in peer-to-peer teaching and discussions

With this, always try to explain your answers others. With the help of your family and friends, you could excel on your exam.

Explain to them your reason for why you have answered a certain question in a certain way.


6. Organize study groups with friends and colleague students.

Study groups can help you get the answers you need and finish tasks faster. Just make sure the group is focused on the subject and they are not easily distracted. With this, the study group shouldn’t be more than five members.

7. Take regular breaks

Regular breaks are needed for the brain to regain its focus. It is not the best tactic to study long hours because long-term retention of knowledge is almost impossible. The most important part of studying is to develop a routine that fits your study style.  Always remember to take a nap when your mind is tired.

8. Eat well and healthy 

Snacking on healthy food is good for the brain
You should not eat unhealthy food while you are studying. Keep your body and brain fit by choosing natural, fresh and vitamins rich food that is good for you and would improve your concentration and memory.


9. Plan the day of your exams

Check all the rules and requirements for the exam. Plan your route and the time it may take you to reach your destination – then add on some extra time. You do not want to arrive late and deal with even more anxiety.

10. Drink plenty of water

While studying for exams and even during an exam, it is advisable to drink water. Remaining hydrated is vital and adds to your overall positive mood.
