1. Get Prepared

The Board offers a standardized examination that requires preparation. It has been said over and over again that failing to plan is planning to fail. The case is not different with KMLTTB examination.  Have you begun revising your course work on these six subjects?  How conversant are you with the practical aspect of each?  Will you come to the exam room with an extra pen or ruler, or do you plan to resolve all these in the last minute’s rush?

In short, get focused.

2. Observe Board Examination Rules and Regulation

Exam candidates are typically taken over KMLTTB Examination Rules and Regulation, whose breach leads to punishment. It is, therefore, crucial to attend examination rehearsals where you can access details on what is expected of you. Nonetheless, there are other provisions that cut across most examination settings. For example, exam rooms must be kept noise-free for maximum concentration. Furthermore, you are not allowed to walk into an examination room with any writing materials. All revision materials must be left out of the examination environment to pave the way for integrity and fairness. Also, be punctual. Arrive at your examination center before time and settle. Lateness is serious misconduct. Take note.

3. Avoid Disruptions

The final tip is to get as far away from disruptions as possible. In general, watch out for people who want to engage you in the course of examinations. They will put you in trouble. Also, put your mobile phone on silent or airplane mode. Mobile phones can be a nuisance especially when they keep ringing, thereby disrupting your flow of thoughts as you do your paper.
Apply these three in all examinations in the future if you want to succeed.
