EDUCATION – EXAM TIPS

1.  Have all necessary material with you – You can’t borrow items such as pens, pencils rulers or special equipment while in an examination.

2.  Have a relaxing night before your exams – Have an early night, and try to have a healthy breakfast.

3.  Read the entire paper – Where you have choices, decide which ones you plan to answer.

4.  Plan your time – Spend some time drafting a plan for the questions you choose to answer.

5.  Jot down ideas as they come to you – While you are answering one question, information about another may suddenly occur to you.  Jot it down somewhere because when you come to that question perhaps an hour later, you may have forgotten it.
