Exam Revision stress tip box Use these tips to write a letter to your pen friend
• Have your own revision timetable and start planning well before exams begin. Your teacher should be able to help you.
• Make your notes easy to apply by using headings, highlighters and revision cards. • Take notes of the important points when revising. • Try to answer the questions of past exam papers.
• Find out what plan suits you best as everyone revises differently. This could be alone or with a friend or parent; early morning or late at night; short or longer sessions; with music or without noise.
• Ask for help from your teacher, parent or a friend if there are things you don't understand. • Don't leave revision to the last minute.
• Don't avoid revising subjects you don't like or find difficult.
• Don't forget that there is life beyond revision and exams.
• Don't cram all night before an exam – you'll be really tired in the morning and a good night’s sleep is important. •Do not rush your answers, that is let your examiners finish their question!
On the day of the exam:
• Plan how much time you'll need for each question. Make sure you know where the exam is being held and what time it starts and try not to be late.
• If you feel really anxious, breathe slowly and deeply while waiting for the exam to start.
• Read the instructions before starting the exam.
• Read through all the questions before starting writing, and make sure you know how many questions you are required to answer. Start by answering the question you feel you can answer best.
• If you are stuck on a question, don’t lose time, go on to the next. You can always come back to it later. But don’t cheat. Leave time to read through and check your answers before the exam finishes.
