Read the Question
One of the common mistakes students make while taking an exam, is that they skim through the questions instead of taking the time to read it carefully. Read the question carefully before you start writing down your answer. If you skim through the question, there is the possibility you may miss something important.
Multiple choice questions normally have keywords that can help you identify the right answer. Make sure you look for the keywords before answering. Identifying the keyword will help in choosing the right answer.
If you do not know the answer to the question, you may want to narrow down the choices. Narrowing down your choices will help you easily identify the answer and select the right one.
Some teachers recommend going with the first multiple choice answer and not changing it over and over again before turning in the exam paper.
