Examination may be something fun but when it comes to timing it become something challenging and awful.

I can think of one part of my experience when I want to write entrance exam, how I get stuck on a particular calculation question which waste part of my time, this really affect me a lot because I unable to provide answers to the remaining questions with the short period of time that remain, which affects my results after all.

My experience then really thought me some lesson on how to be time management during examination to afford time wasting and afford failure.

It not new that many students just like me are facing the same problem and this may have lead to failure of some people.

Anyway timing cannot be removed from examination, because it also part of the exam, and that is why it is called exam, to test our knowledge based on something in short period of time.

  3. Be timing: although the time you are giving to answer fifty questions is one hour the best way to manage your time is to re-time yourself by answering one question may be within one minute and if you unable to finish within one minute move to the next question and come back to it later.
