14 Secrets to Pass your Final Exams ; next week I’ll be having two exams, and since a lot of you will have final exams too: here are a few secrets that might help you! And feel free to share your finals tips in the comment section below.
Wake up early, so you don’t need to rush, and get ready on time.
Take enough time to have a nice breakfast
Check the time and place of where the exams are, so you know where to go.
Don’t want to be in the wrong place, right?
Before leaving home, check your bag so that you have everything you need, such as extra pencils, batteries, earplugs for not hearing all the noise like the clicking pencils and sighs, etc.
Leave on time. A lot of unexpected things can happen on your way there and you don’t want to be late!
Avoid stressed people, they might ask you all kinds of questions and you’ll end up being stressed yourself.
Go to the loo before your exam, so you don’t have to go while you’re having your exam.
The first thing you have to do is: Write your name on all the exam papers. If your name is not on the paper, you’re screwed, big time.
Scan through all the questions and plan how much time you need to answer each.
Start answering the first and last questions, those are usually the easiest and shortest ones.
If you don’t know the answer, just start writing (the formula/calculation or story). You’ll probably remember the answers again, or at least get some points for the things you did write down.
Skip the questions you don’t know for now: don’t spend time staring on them!
Use every minute of the exam, take a snack and drink small sips, to keep you hydrated and -if you have time left- go through your answers again, to make sure you didn’t skip any questions.
You studied for months, weeks, days and hours: so you can do this! The exam-makers don’t want you to fail your exams, they want to see you’ve studied. So stay calm and trust yourself.
I wish you all the luck with your exams and hope you are doing well.
