I had been using an online self-paced study method to prepare for my exam when I received an email from my ‘exam centre’ informing me that I would be taken off my timed units for the next IQ test. I did not see this coming. I had asked my instructor if she could make some adjustments so that I could improve my scores on my units.
My instructors were very supportive and helpful when I explained to them my issues. We discussed my progress towards my units, but they could not make any recommendations about how to take my IQ test.
My university ‘preparation course’ company were only willing to take the first set of my units for the upcoming IQ test. I took this as an opportunity to try out another solution and have a training class based upon the Microsoft Exam Preparation.
In the end, I found a list of four US universities and took my exams from each of them without ever contacting the exam centre. This was quite deliberate.
I could not understand why some tests, especially those that did not include the time units, were easier than others. The ‘exam centre’ conducted their own tests individually. They could have conducted a matched group of my units with the time units if they wanted to.
Most of the examination centres to let students take the exams from the list they provided them. My instructors taught meto prepare for the exams by taking all the units that were required for the examinations. I found this was the easiest way of preparing.
There are only so many times that students have to take the exams throughout the year. These exams are timed by the test centre and you do not have control over how long you will have to take the exam. What you can control is the amount of time you take on the unit test. You should do the best you can on your units so that you can do the best you can on the test.
The key was to make sure that I knew what to expect before I took the exams. If I had taken the exams well enough and was prepared, I could easily pass my tests. It is possible to master the assessment units over time.
Many of the exam centres provide assistance for students who need help and support with their exams. The questions in most examinations are much more challenging and often harder than the units. It is easy to be frustrated by these issues and feel like you have lost if you do not keep focused on your units.
Most of the test centres want students to return for their exams. As the tests are timed, students should take all their units and prepare for their examinations well in advance. It is better to find the best test centre for you and then work your way through the test centre to find the best test.
Some of the test centres that require students to take all their units will be easier than others. You should prepare yourself for all the tests you will be taking. The more you know about the exam centre, the better off you will be.
