How to stay calm during exams

How to stay calm during exam season

There's no doubt that exams can be scary and can make the best of revisers anxious, but here are a few ways to keep those exam nerves at bay...

1. Prepare in Advance

If you want to avoid feeling anxious in the exam hall, you want to start preparing for each exam well in advance. The last thing you want to do is start cramming last-minute as this will only get you more worked up and panicked.

2. Sleep Well

There's little point in pulling an all-nighter before an exam as this will only make you exhausted and could have a negative influence on your performance. It's hard to focus on your exam if you're trying hard to stay awake!

3. Healthy Eating

It's important that you eat well before your exam. A nutritious breakfast or lunch will set you in good stead for your morning or afternoon exam. Be careful not to overeat as this will make you feel tired. Likewise with not eating anything at all; even if your appetite isn't there, it will come back to haunt you at some point in the exam
