1. Make sure you are 100% physically and mentally ready
The important thing is, don’t study impromptu until you stay up late the night before the exam, especially on the morning of the exam. Doing so will not only increase your feelings of tension, but it will also be ineffective.
2. Take care of your health
The most important thing in maintaining health before the exam is getting enough sleep regularly. Sleep is closely related to academic performance, you know! Also, don’t forget to eat healthy food regularly.
3. Do your exam questions step-by-step
Once you start taking the exam, complete the sections of the exam one by one. If you are stuck while working on one part that you find difficult, complete it immediately, and move on to the next section.
4. Prepare strategies for answering exam questions
If you have a strategy, you will be more confident during the exam. The most standard strategy is to do the easy questions first. If something is difficult, skip it first.
5. Don’t hesitate to ask
If there’s something you don’t understand, don’t be shy about asking your teacher, lecturer, or exam supervisor for information, instructions, or expectations about the exam.
6. Think logically and realistically
Usually, pre-exam stress arises because you think about the worst possibilities. Though maybe actually the bad possibilities are very small.
