Only one way to make it work

This is a mistake that sometimes I still commit, unintentionally. Every academic exam, I use to review my answers whenever I have the time and I usually change most of them. More often than not though, it would turn out that the answers that I’ve changed are the correct ones and my new answers are wrong. This has really been a constant frustration to me.

I have tried not to change any of my answers despite my gut feeling of doing otherwise. It would happen that I should’ve just changed them anyway. This problem of mine actually makes me hate multiple-choice type of exams. I tried to deal with it by really taking my time in answering every question, but sometimes the information that leaves your brain and you’re left with nothing. So what I do is that I mark the questions that I’m not sure and those that I’ve really no idea about. When I go back to them, I have three choices: a) follow my gut and “feel” the correct answer; b) really try my best to think of the best answer; and c) randomly pick a letter and give it my best prayers. Nothing has worked best for me yet though.

So I figured that the ultimate solution to this problem is simply to study E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. Anything that you haven’t studied and show up in the exams is probably a lost case. If it’s a multiple choice then you still have a .25 probability of getting the right answer, otherwise accept your fate.
