Some people have trouble writing exams; some are very nervous; here are some techniques for calming yourself down:
- breath deeply a few times
- close your eyes
In your last week before the exam, stay well rested and continue to practice with the test-taking tips and reminding yourself of your two major priorities – pacing and process of elimination. The night before the exam, plan to eat a light meal, don’t study, be well rested for the morning. Be sure to double check your alarm and perhaps have a back
up plan (a friend to call to make sure you are ready)
The Day of the Test
- wear comfortable clothes
- eat proper breakfast
- allow yourself lots of time to get to the exam location
- make time to do some “warm-up” questions of each type
Be sure you have the following items before you leave for the test:
- Identification: Check for a list of acceptable forms of identification.
- Your admission ticket.
Well, do your best and good luck!
