The Night Before an Exam

  • Check your exam time, room number and seat allocation
  • Study until dinner then sit down to a good meal (no alcohol)
  • After dinner read over your summaries. Minimise TV and screen time (yes, even phones)
  • Relax and enjoy a good night’s sleep
BEFORE LEAVING HOME:
  • Eat a good breakfast high in carbs before a morning exam or light lunch before an afternoon exam
  • Allow at least one hour to read your summaries and any rote learning
  • Leave earlier than usual in case of transport delays
  • Wear a watch to keep track of time during the exam
BEFORE YOU GO IN THE EXAM ROOM:
  • Read the summaries of your summaries to help focus your thoughts
  • Stay away from other people - they may distract you
  • Conversations about possible content are not constructive
