PostSubject: How to Get Prepared for a Magister Contest   Wed 12 Aug - 19:29

To revise for the MA contest one have to built up a strategy, an effective and efficient one. For example if one wants to pass Bouzeriah's contest exam he should do the following:

Choosing the field where one intends to 1-contend. Either linguistics and didactics or Literature and civilisation.

Let's say one has chosen Literature and Civilisation. Normally there are 3 civilisations ( Am, Bri and Af) and 3 Literatures ( Am, Br and Af). But it's quite difficult to prepare all of them so one may choose two literatures and two civilisations.

3- Now let's admit that someone has chosen, for the civ you can move chronologically but what matters is to understand how the events are related. You should anticipate the proplematics that might be contest questions. If you can't see the relation between events and you learn just by heart be sure you'll be out of topic since the contest is gonna be an analytical question that needs personal reflection and analysis. Nevertheless your personal reflection should not be based on speculations, you should have read quite a lot of interessting articles about varied topics.

For the Lit there should be a strategy too. Generally, in order not to say always, there's a question where you should use more than one work. What you should do when revising is trying to join themes together and join works together. For example if you have to read Fitzgerald, you have to read Hemingway too, so you can illustrate using two works.

I can't say exactly what you have to do but I can say what you shoulkd avoid:
- Avoid non-structered essays
- Avoid to make of your paper a melting pot of everydays issues.
- Avoid to make of your lit paper a sociological or historical paper ( i.e speaking without illustrations and louding it with theories)
- Avoid bad-handwriting, your paper isn't the only one which should be read.
