Study before Exams
Make sure that you have studied reasonably well during the school year and you have a good level of preparation when entering the home stretch. The day school starts, you should start preparing for the exams as that will take the pressure off you in the end.
Concentrate on Weak Areas
Every student is aware of his or her weak points. Concentrate more on them and make sure that you keep them in the start of a study session so that you can utilise maximum energy on these weaknesses. Do make sure that you work hard on other areas as well as you do not want to divert all your attention to just a few hard things.
Study in Periods
Unless you are someone who can have one long 8 hour study session without much trouble, it is best to study with intervals. You can study for two hours constantly and then take half an hour break and then head back for some more studying. Taking breaks will help you in keeping yourself going and will also reduce the stress that you will be taking.
Do Not End Other Activities
Some people give up their life in exams. That’s not the right way to go. Humans are built to take stress to a certain level and although you can force yourself to push the limits, it will only harm you and make it harder for you to study. Having a bit of a chit chat with friends or watching some television can remove a lot of the stress and can keep you going. Make sure that you get enough sleep as well. Most people kill their sleep in exams and that can backfire right in the middle of the test.
