So exams are fast approaching (like scary fast if we’re being honest) and it’s time to focus. Some of you might have already finished a few of your exams and others are just beginning, but I bet everyone is nervous/scared/anxious about not only the exams themselves, but also the results.
Everyone has different goals and targets… and that’s okay. It doesn’t really matter if you’re hoping for 3 As or 3 Bs, as long as you try your best and aim high, that’s all you can do!
Exams are stressful. You can’t control the questions that the examiner is going to ask, but you can control how much effort you put in to trying to succeed.
Revision is key. Make a plan of when you are going to revise different topics and stick to it. Add social time to that plan so you don’t feel swamped 24/7. Make flash-cards and put post-it-notes all around your room. If you feel that you can study in a group without getting distracted, have group sessions. Ask your teachers for extra work and sample exam questions. Colour code sheets and keep everything organised! Before the exam, make sure you eat. Collect all your resources that you need and keep calm!
We know you’ll do amazing and hopefully you’ll get the results you want, have an amazing summer and we hope to see you in September. GOOD LUCK!
Until next time…
