First exams!! :)

Hey everyone!

Today I sat my first ever school exams! Ok, so they were “mocks” and I don’t get any credits from them but all the same, exams are exams πŸ˜‰

I just wanted to share a bit of advice for any future or current exams you may be sitting – because I am now a self-appointed exam-advice-giver πŸ˜‰

  1. Breath. Seems logical, but sometimes it can be hard to remember to do this properly. I could go into a whole lot of scientific details but basically ultimately if you remember to breath nice an slow, or just at a normal calming pace it can help you concentrate and think.
  2. Prepare. Don’t start the night or week before. Time is your best ally and also the best way for you to work out your best studying strategies. I have to say I wish I had followed my own advice about this πŸ™‚ But I can honestly say you’ll feel a lot better in your exam if you know you’ve prepared for it.
  3. Believe in yourself. The worse thing is self-doubt especially when in an exam. Believe that you are going to do well, and trust me you will do a lot better. Know you strengths and weaknesses and work with that, but don’t assume you know nothing πŸ˜‰

I hope this was helpful in some way πŸ™‚ Please feel free to leave comments about what you advise for studying!Β  I would love to hear them (I still have a week of exams to go ;))

  1. This post was so helpful, and I wish you the best of luck in your next exams and hope the last one went okay! ❀ My main advice for anyone taking tests in terms of revision and preparation would have to be the quote "you reap what you sow". If you work really hard and try your best, your efforts will always be rewarded. If you don't try at all, don't be disappointed if you haven't achieved what you wanted, and learn from your mistakes. Remember you can only try your best, and everyone is in the same boat taking exactly the same exam paper, so if you find it hard, chances are your not the only one and other people will be struggling too, so don't beat yourself up about it. Hope all goes well for you in the next week! πŸ™‚
