It’s exam day and you want to be in the best mindset. You need to be calm and ready to do your best. Here are our 5 tips on what to do before an exam.
Get your mind and body ready by getting energised. While you’re getting ready, play your favorite songs. The simple act of singing along with the songs will encourage your brain to start processing information.
Having breakfast on the morning of your exam is important to give you enough energy to make it all the way through your exam.
Your breakfast should include vitamins and fibre to keep you energized and full.
Give yourself plenty of time in the morning to look over your notes. Reading some of your notes will get your brain in the mood for processing information. Try not to leave any memorising until the morning of the exam because this can damage any information your brain has already stored.
Wake up with enough time to eat, relax and, get to your exam so you don’t get stressed. This allows you to get comfortable with your surroundings and calm down before you embark on the exam. It will also stop you from being late and experiencing any penalties associated with this.
Make sure you have everything you need for the exam:
Remember none of your equipment can having markings on them. Leave your watch at home, you’ll have to take it off anyway and there will be several clocks hung up in the exam room.
If you are unable to get to your school to undergo the exam, call your school immediately and they will be able to help you.
Good luck with all your exams!
