During the exam
When sat in the exam hall, keep calm and focused on the task at hand. Remember to read all the instructions before putting pen to paper and make sure you allocate your time carefully in order to answer all the required questions.

After the exam
Don’t worry about your previous examination – you can’t do anything about it – try and focus on your next one instead.
Below are a few more helpful post exam tips:

  • Try not to talk to fellow candidates after the exam about how you think you did. Even though you may have found it harder than other people, you may have answered the question better
  • Talk to your teacher if you were unwell, or if you think there were circumstances which affected your performance
  • Don’t let your exams get you down; talk to your teachers, family or friends
  • Don’t dwell on your performance – concentrate on preparing for your next exam
