HOT TIPS

FOR

STAYING COOL AT EXAM

TIME



0

_I_



It's

always good to know what you're aiming

for,

so that you know

if

and when

you get there. By


having an aim for

each

week, or even each day,

it will

help you check your progress and show you


ifyou

need to change your plans.

l._



Rather

than have

to work

through

masses

of

notes every

time

you

revise

something,

try

noting


down the things you want

to

remember on a piece

of

paper.

It

doesn't seem as much

to

learn that
way, but

it

makes sure you

don't

miss out anything important. Once

you've

leamt the main points,
rewrite them on another piece of paper without looking at your notes.


2._




"If

you

don't know

it

by now,

you'll

never

leam

it

for

tomorrow".

Everyone says

it,

but it's



probably true.

Don't

stay up

all

night studying.

You'd

be better going

to

bed at a reasonable time,


so that you can wake up fresh and alert on exam day.


3.



(6)

There is nothing worse than being disorganized.

If

you have a plan and stick to

it, you won't

end up
cramming

all

your revision into the last few

hours!.

Make a list

of

your exams

and what

you need


to

learn beforehand, and then drew up a timetable covering

all

the

topics.

You

can then

work

out
what you need to do on a weekly basis and when you are going to do it.


4._



When you reach each

of

your targets, give yotnself a treat

*

you deserve

it!. It

could

be a

drink,

a


short break

to

watch

your

favorite

TV

programme, a

phone

call

to

a

friend-

anything you enjoy.
Test your self,

from

time

to

time, on a topic and

if

you do

well,

give yourself a special treat based


on how

well

you have done.


5.


By now

you'll

probably have discovered the method of revision

which

suits you best. But now and
then

it

might be

helpful

to

try

a different method. You could try working

with

a group

of

friends, or
using a

different book which

covers things

from

a new angle. Whatever

it

is,

just

firy something



different occasionally.
6.


Some things are almost impossible to remember, so you may need to do something unusual to help


you remember.

Try writing

them down

in

large letters and

bright

colors and

sticking

them on the


fridge, on a

miror

or on the bathroom door.

Try recording

them onto a cassette and keep playing

it



back to yourself- on a personal stereo

if

you have

got

one !.
1


Not too many people

like

exams and most of us

get

nervous. But

if

you've

followed

your plan and
put the

effort

into

revising, than there is no need

to worry

or panic.

Hopefully

these tips

will

have
helped you. Give

it

your best shot- that's all that anyone can

expct

of you.
