8 Tips Before Taking the College Entrance Tests
What's up, senior high students? Are you ready to tackle the challenges of a new campus life? Whether your answer to that is a faint no or a resounding yes, we know one thing's for sure: everyone wants to be part of a good university. But before the journey to it, know that getting won't be as easy as ABC, which is why it is a must to be prepared. Here are some tips before taking the college entrance exams.
- Review centers and tutors
If you're having a hard time recalling past lessons, consider enrolling in a review center or hiring a tutor; they can surely help you gain the knowledge you'll need before taking the exams.
- Summer time =free time = study time
Summer is all about having fun, fun, and more fun! However, it is also a reason why some of us tend to forget our priorities: one of which is not grabbing the opportunity to study. Summer is a good time to go over your past academic lessons. Materials such as books, flowcharts, and diagrams could be very helpful in the reviewing process.
- "T.O. way"
Organize your books and papers in a "T.O. Way"—tidy and orderly manner. Remember that a clean space is a good environment for you to study in. Thus, you'll be able to focus more properly.
- Study buddy
Having trouble studying on your own? Try planning study groups with friends. You could help share knowledge and ideas, and work on each other's difficulties. Plus, spending time with your high school barkada is a must before going to college.
- A fruit a day, keeps the body awake
What a person eats can really have an impact on one's energy level and concentration. So before the actual day, remember to stay away from unhealthy foods like junk food. Eat nutritious food such as fruits and veggies; it will keep your mind and body focused and energized.
Being well hydrated is important and essential for your brain and body to work at its best. Keep drinking plenty of water throughout the days of your preparation, and don't forget to bring a bottle with you on the actual exam day.
- Rest before the test
When college exams are nearing, remember: don't stress yourself out by pulling an all-nighter. You wouldn't want to get mental blocks on the big day, would you? A good eight hours of sleep is what you'll need to be refreshed and at your best during the test.
- Skip and Scan
Finally, during the exam, keep in mind that time is gold. Be quick, careful, and analyze everything completely. Remember the two S's: "Skip and Scan." Scan the item first, but don't dwell on it for too long; if it's too complicated to answer then skip it, and just go back when you have the spare time.
Good luck, seniors! May the odds be ever in your favor!

Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
