When taking the exam, take it easy. That means don’t push yourself too hard. Remember, your exam will last about 2 hours. Have a light snack during the test and do not drink anything too soon before the exam. Even if it’s a bit more than you should.
Take breaks. Get up and walk around every two minutes. Take some deep breaths and see how your body reacts to being able to move around.
Take your time. You will probably have to re-take the exam at least three times. To avoid this, take it slow and make sure you understand the material.
Take it one step at a time. You have to start with a little bit of material and work your way towards the next level of study.
Focus. You should study for your exam in five daily sessions. You should try to study for your exam at least twice each day.
Take breaks and eat food. So that you can get some fresh air and relaxation. And also to help your body produce more energy and stamina for the test. You might want to take a nap if you can.
Take notes. Write down any interesting facts or information that catches your attention. Use your notes to your advantage when you re-read your notes. Reading over your notes and highlighting anything that you want to take further research on.
If it’s a good idea to ask someone to come up with a mock exam, that’s okay. It doesn’t matter if it’s a third party examiner or not, it’s important to get prepared.
Take notes during your practice exams. You don’t need to read them because it will only distract you from learning.
