Its for all those who are sitting exams, whether academic or vocational. Do follow it and you will do good. best of luck guys.
Just think of all the things you will get out of these exams – a place in the sixth form, a place at university, a better chance at the career of your choice. Knowing I'll have a better chance at a career later in life than someone who couldn't be bothered to take the time makes me go for it.
Keep yourself motivated by keeping a record of your achievements.
During exams, carry on revising for those left to take. Read through past papers, practice timed answers, but take regular breaks as well.
Deep breaths before an exam. Before you turn that page, close your eyes and breathe deeply three of four times.
Don't listen to friends who say "Don't revise" - they don't care about your future.
Try to get a good night's sleep before the exam and try to eat at least an hour before the exam – a banana or other "brain food" is good. Take a bottle of water in with you.
When you are told to turn the paper over, read the exam paper from cover to cover and then re-read it again – don't just jump in and answer the first question.
When "budgeting" your exam time, give yourself ten minutes at the end to reread from cover to cover to check spellings, and see that the questions have been answered, and generally check through the paper. Look at where the marks are to be gained and allocate time appropriately (and stick to it). Answering three questions fairly well is better than answering one very well and leaving two badly done. Underlining key words in the question may help to focus your mind and jog your memory.
Use coloured pens or highlighters on the exam paper to highlight things you want to include in your answers.
