Nobody likes tests, but there is a strategy that can help you pass multiple choice quizzes. When you are having trouble with a multiple choice test, there are a number of things that you should consider before filling in the bubble.

First, you should consider what you already know. If you know anything about the subject, then you may be able to make an educated guess. An educated guess is a guess based on knowledge and experience and is therefore likely to be correct.

Freshman Han Kim said, “I would try and remember what I know about the subject, then I would answer the question.”

Another tip is to not overthink the question because overthinking something can lead to stress, and stress is the last thing you need while taking a test.

The best way to pass a test, however, is to study before taking it.

Kim said studying prevents him from getting confused while taking a test.
