Expect The Unexpected
We all go through highs and lows. There are many times when a job is not what we thought it was or we go to a function which we thought was one thing but it turns out that it was something completely different. This difference between expectation and reality can be huge and if not expected, can really take someone by surprise.
This is why I would advise you all to expect the unexpected. Don’t go anywhere putting all your energy thinking that it is going to go a certain way because if it doesn’t, then you are going to be taken back by this. If it is an assessment centre and you are sure that you’re going to be doing tests because of your own research even though the email doesn’t mention tests, then you will have wasted valuable time on something which was not necessary rather than using that time to prepare efficiently.
The same principle goes for exams. Do not expect any question or topic to come up in an exam. You should prepare the whole subject and revise as if anything could come up. Of course, if you have seen patterns or trends in the same type of questions coming up repeatedly, then you can lean towards these more in your revision to ensure you know the answer. However, do not miss out other parts by just focusing on that part. This leaves room for error and exams can be unpredictable at times.
