n the exam room: Take six deep breaths, ignore everyone else and concentrate solely on what you have to do. Have a glucose sweet, to boost energy to your brain – but don’t crunch. Read the instructions on the exam papers carefully – do the appropriate number of questions from the right sections, and answer compulsory questions. Know how many marks each question carries – don’t spend too long on any one. Use the number of marks on the paper as a guide. Read questions carefully before you write anything. Time is allowed for this. Use that time to choose your questions, and write notes on the question paper to help you remember later. Make sure you answer the question asked. No marks if you don’t. If you run out of time, more marks can be gained by completing your remaining answers in outline only. State what you would do and how to do it, by outlining your main arguments in an essay – without writing the essay – and by jotting down formulae in science – stating how you would complete the question – without doing the calculations.

Before the exam: Know when and where your exams are being held. Check your equipment, make sure that it is in good working order, and know what is to be provided by your school. Check you don’t have two exams at the same time. Special arrangements need to be made. Don’t cheat or break any rules. You could be disqualified or even arrested. Mobile phones are a menace and barred from the exam hall. Don’t take one in. Have a leisurely breakfast or lunch and walk to school, if possible. Be there in good time. Avoid friends outside the exam hall. They could confuse you. Keep your thoughts to yourself and concentrate on the exam. That’s why you are there.

My top tip is chill out for a bit. Open up and calm down, you'll think better and you'll let your brain think outside the box. After that, start deadlining and organising. Anxiety makes you focus so you can churn through work a lot faster!

I can give great advice considering i'm still going through the exam process at University. I personally feel there's no right answer as everyone learns in a different way, some maybe read - write or visual etc. But the best tip must be using past papers to make sure your as confident on the subject matter as possible and this will give you a real boost and make you feel like your going to succeed. As i said everyone learns differently so if you contact me personally i can find a successful way for you to gain the highest marks. Cheers x
