foods that will keep your energy levels up and body functioning until the exam is over.
Study by using flashcards before the exam Or read over some quotes or formulas
depending on whether you are writing a Math, Science or English exam, the most
important thing is to keep calm.
Relax Being flustered is not going to help you, you’ve done your preparation and there’s
not much you can do now.
Ensure you have all the necessary supplies Prior to the exam make sure you have pens,
sharpened pencils and a calculator depending on which exam your are writing.
