Top 10 tips for surviving your exams
1.
Plan ahead – make sure well in advance that you know how each exam works and how many questions you have to answer.
2.
Do not bottle up your worries – talk to someone; ask for help early.
3.
Practise relaxation techniques/anti-panic strategy.*
4.
Spend at least 30 minutes a day relaxing doing one of these things: reading an easy book, having a bath, listening to music,
walking, exercising or watching a funny film. Do not use a computer, tablet or phone during this time.*
5.
Learn how to get a better night’s sleep.*
6.
Find lots of brain fuelling foods that you LIKE and make sure you eat before work/your exam. Plan your pre-exam snack.
Always have water with you and avoid fizzy or sugary drinks.*
7.
Your brain can only concentrate well for about 25 minutes – give yourself a break then. Breathe deeply, walk about if
possible; if not, wriggle your toes!
8.
Get fresh air. A brisk walk outside has huge health and anti-stress benefits and is also a very good way of thinking things
through. And it pushes more oxygen to your brain.
9.
A bit of chocolate (preferably dark) is a good idea – before an exam for an energy boost (as long as you also have some
protein) and after as a reward. You deserve it!
10.
After an exam, do not ask other people what they wrote; it’s a sure-fire way to be more stressed. Now is the time to put that
exam behind you. It’s over!
