Losing Sight Of Your Priorities? Find Them Back!

I had a long weekend. Friday was a public holiday, here in Mauritius. Yet, as I’m writing this, on Monday morning, I realise that even though I should have had more time to do what I had to do, I in fact did not. I even didn’t have the time to check out WordPress and check my mail as I used to!

What happened exactly?

Well, on Friday, I got my hair cut (again haha, I tend to keep it as short as a boy’s), then since it was a holiday I went to my grandma’s and during my spare time, I blogged (my last post) and did Art homework. Fine.

It was on Saturday that I lost it.

My mind, I guess.

Preparing For An Examination

This extract about ‘preparing for an exam’ comes from my economics book but can be applied to any subject and exam you’re taking. Credits goes to Susan Grant, the author of my book for Economics at O-level.

Revision

Revision is a continuous process. After every lesson, check your work and if necessary, add extra notes. As the examination approaches, you will need to do intensive revision. Try to engage in active revision. This involves, not just reading notes, but also using the information. There are a number of ways through which this can be done. These include testing other members of the class and getting them to test you, drawing spider diagrams and producing tables and revision cards.

7 Tips to Be Chosen as Best Answer on Yahoo! Answers

Are you on Yahoo! Answers like me? Do you wonder how people can get lots of best answers? Well I’ve got the solution for you!

I’ve been experimenting on Yahoo! Answers for some years but this year my Answers was far more active and I most of the time get best answers because… Well here are the 7 tips to follow beginning by the basics – things that everyone already knows:

1. Don’t write nonsense – answer clearly and directly to the question and do some research if you need to. It won’t cost you a penny!

2. Provide links – when I vote for best answers I usually search for those which are long, well-written and have links.

3. Answer questions in which you are a pro – e.g. if you are a parent well, answer or share your experiences in the Parenting section!

4. Please don’t lie but don’t be rude. Be friendly but frank see?

5. Don’t spam

6. Do not answer much questions like: “What’s your favourite music…” because it’ll go into voting and there might be 1/100 that your answer is chosen as best. Answer these types of questions when you need 2 additional points.

7. Click on the tab “fewest answers” when you search for questions to answer. At the same time you’re helping the asker and there’s more probability that your answer’s chosen as best even if the question goes into voting as most of the time no one else will answer, especially questions with 0 answers which have been asked since like 3 days ago… If you follow this step, you must also follow the 6 first ones – in answering a question you help, not wasting the person’s time and provide useless answers in resolved questions.

These worked for me. Did it for you?
