As exam season is now under way we have we have collated some exam top tips for you:

Before the Exam

  • Give yourself breaks.
  • Plan something enjoyable into every revision day
  • Have an early night before the exam. 
  • Don’t drink tea, coffee or alcohol late at night, it will stop you sleeping. A rested mind thinks better than a tired one.
  • Don’t lie in bed panicking, get up and read a magazine or watch some TV or radio.
  • Don’t cram up to the last minute. You are more likely to forget things you’ve learned in a hurry.

In the exam

  • Make yourself as comfortable as possible. Take deep breaths and relax.
  • Read through the questions and pick the ones you think you can do. If you blank out try not to worry, take three deep breaths.
  • Do the questions you find easiest first to give you confidence. But stick to your time plan.
