Engage in group discussions
Group discussions will help you to get support from your peers in your areas of weakness in Kiswahili. You will be able to exchange ideas and progress in a group revision. This is especially important in fasihi andishi where you can discuss on the various books that are to be examined i.e. riwaya, tamthilia hadithi fupi etc. you should however make sure that you are in a group that is small , manageable and whose members are co-operative.
Do quick revision
Don’t spend a lot of time reading a fasihi text e.g. riwaya or tamthilia. Many students spend a lot of time reading these texts forgetting that they also have other areas to read for. Revising for the Kiswahili exam will require you to spend less time on revising a particular area since it is a broad subject.
