How to prepare for an exam

The ‘how-to revise for an exam’ tips focuses on preparing for an exam as an important first step to effective study. Understandably, if you do not gather the right revision materials before an exam, you’ll have problems revising the fundamental facts your need to answer a certain exam question.

It is like building a house. The housebuilder must/should: 

  • have a plan (List of topics), 
  • collect the right materials s/he needs, 
  • know when to use the materials (timetable), and 
  • build the house (organise notes by subject for revision). 

You will not (and CANNOT) go wrong if you prepare the materials in good time, make your revision notes and use them effectively when you are studying for an examination.

GRADE 12 EXAMINATIONS - CHANGES TO THE NATIONAL EXAMINATION DATES

The Acting Secretary for Education Dr Uke Kombra has advised all the Provincial Administrators, Chairpersons of the Provincial Education Boards, Provincial Education Advisors, Church Education Secretaries, Principals of Secondary Schools, Secondary Schools Standards Officers and Board Chairpersons of Secondary Schools of the changes to the 2016 Grade 12 National Examination dates.


The changes were made because principals of some schools have not complied with the standard procedures used to guide students to select subject combinations. This situation has forced the Department to revise this year’s Grade 12 National Examination Timetable to be conducted for two weeks when it should have taken only one week.

The Secretary’s Circular Instruction has been issued on 7/9/16 to advise the schools and provincial authorities about the recent changes so that they can familiarize themselves before the scheduled Grade 12 Examination is conducted on Monday, 17th October to Wednesday, 26th October as shown on the revised timetable below:

Day/Date Examination Paper Time

(For this year's dates click HERE)

Dr. Kombra instructed all examinations to be administered on the time and dates as published and not based on Measurement Service’s calendar 2016 as the new changes supersede the initial timings already printed on the Examination Booklets especially for History, Economics, Applied Science, Accounting, Biology, Legal Studies, Business Studies and Geology.

Any time other than the timings given will nullify the Examination and the Examination Marks will not be used for moderation of the final results.

The Secretary’s Circular also reminded everyone that the penalty for cheating or assisting to cheat in the National Examination is Non Certification, and the External invigilators, Schools and Standards Officers must report all observed malpractices to the Measurement Services Division for analysis and action.

The teachers are not allowed to view, read or access Exam Papers while conducting the exams. Mobile phones are also banned from the Exam Rooms for students and all school personnel. Principals and Deputy Principals must stay in school during all exams and enforce strict implementation of the schedule and abide by all Measurement Services regulations relating to examinations.

All concerned parties have been urged to make every effort to give all students and schools “a fair go” and to be honest and say NO to examination cheating.
