Five quick study tips to help you feel prepared…

1. Pick up a pen, set a timer, and practice writing at speed under exam conditions.
2. Try to learn actively rather than passively. When reading your notes, engage with them. Ask yourself, “What have I just learnt? How might I use it?”
3. Test yourself. 10-15 minutes after learning something prove to yourself that you have learnt it. Then go over it again the next day. Then increase this to 3 days later, 7 days, etc…
4. Look at past papers, and read each question highlighting key words.
5. And finally - check you know the right location, time and date for each exam.

Five quick tips for your wellbeing at exam time...

1. Get a good night’s sleep where possible.
2. Exercise.
3. Eat well and go easy on the caffeine!
4. Be kind to yourself and take breaks.
5. Think positively and breathe deeply.
