Have you got an exam tomorrow?

Exams seem to strike fear into even the most confident student. It’s the moment you’ve been gearing up for since you first started school way back when. Finally, it’s here.

It’s natural to feel nervous. Everyone feels this. The trick is to try to relax as much as possible the night before rather than sit and dwell on the day ahead. More top tips next!

The day before:

  • Check you have the right equipment ready to take with you. Does your calculator work? Essential for Maths and Science. Do you have spare pens in case yours run out?
  • Read over your main notes without obesssing about them. Then go off and do something relaxing: read a book, watch a funny movie, have a kickabout with your mates outside
  • Eat a decent meal to power up your energy. This will help you sleep soundly too. Plus remember to set your alarm!

The day itself:

  • Eat a hearty breakfast. Don’t skip eating! Even a banana will give you energy.
  • Try to stay calm. Get comfortable at your table. Make sure your desk isn’t wobbly. Speak up if it isn’t otherwise it’ll annoy you. Take deep breaths too at your desk to calm yourself down.
  • Whether you’re taking GCSE exams this week or sitting your A Levels, remember that it’s just an exam. Most students do much better than they think they will. So go in there with your head held high, and give it all you’ve got!
