Y3K Tutor In Your Home’s Test Taking Strategies #11: Timed Test - First Do The Easy Ones
Some students go in sequential order of the test and get caught up on a question. They spend extra time on that one question and then run out of time. They end up not answering the last few questions due to lack of time. Not anymore!
The trick to defeating a timed test is to work out of order. Answer the easy questions you know. Skip the hard questions or questions that will take a long time to answer. Then after you have answered all the questions you can, go back and spend the rest of your time on the challenging ones. This way a student will earn a higher test score for answering more correct answers.
