Which one is better? Taking an Exam with no preparation done beforehand or Skipping it altogether?
I have done the former (i.e take tests unprepared) a lot many times than the latter - so much that I have gotten sort of used to to it. I have observed that if I have insufficient time for preparing for an exam, I don't study as hard for it as I would have before adopting this practice.
My mentors are of the view that one shouldn't ever skip a test. That I'll learn more than just something at the cost of sitting through those hours of the exam.
Is this worth my current subconscious habit?Is it good to continue this if I find that the frequency of me taking half-prepared exams is increasing ?
PPS: I am talking about a Multiple Choice based exam with Negative marking present in it.These are sort of Practice tests for the main exam.
PS: This is NOT a debate or discussion. I Genuinely want to know which is better for improvement in academics.
