Exams – simply looking at the word can inspire panic in even the most seasoned of students. Luckily, there are some great tips and tricks for boosting your confidence ahead of an important test or exam. Ready? Here we go.
Plan it out
When an exam is just around the corner, it’s more important than ever to use your time wisely. Avoid leaving everything to the last minute by making a study schedule; do your best to revise for at least 1 hour a day, without distractions like Facebook or Instagram hanging around. If you plan on studying for a longer period of time, remember to take regular breaks to avoid feeling stressed out and fatigued.
Form a Study Group
Studying doesn’t have to be boring or lonely. Get together with a few like-minded friends and work towards exam success together. This type of team work provides support, motivation, and the chance to help each other to understand more difficult topics. It’s also a fantastic way to make memories with your EC family!
Light it up
This tip is just perfect for visual learners – use different coloured pens and highlighters to help you remember essential information. Don’t go too crazy, though!
This might seem obvious, but it’s definitely worth remembering. Panic clouds the mind and can cause students to forget key information – so make sure that you get enough sleep (around 8 hours a night) and always take the time to unwind before and after an exam. You deserve it!
