Common silly mistake means failed exams!
A very common cause of failing exams is NOT READING YOUR EXAM PAPER !
One of the silly errors that we find is when the exam paper has for example 10 questions and you are instructed to choose 5 of the questions, we see many students NOT reading the instructions and then trying to answer all of the questions, often students will run out of time trying to answer all the questions or get overwhelmed with stress and make more mistakes when rushing to finish the paper when they actually had finished the exam.
In some maths exams the instructions are to show all the working steps, many students fail on this simple failure to read problem, this is often the case with Engineering and similar exams.
Take your time!, read your paper more than once, do not feel that you have to start the paper when told you can, make sure you understand the instructions and where you have a choice of questions to answer start with the easiest and work on that, it will help with stress knowing you are answering the questions and dont forget.............write your name on the answer paper!.
