exam technique.

Try to get a good night’s sleep. Avoid last minute cramming the night before: it’s usually ineffective, adds to your nervousness, and will result in you waking up feeling tired. sleep early..

Make sure that you have everything you need for the exam: spare pen, pencil, etc., a fresh battery in your calculator, any materials for a seen/open book exam, a watch. . and other.

Try to see the main points of each topic as a whole first before delving into the detail. Details are easier to remember if you understand how they fit into the larger framework.
Review the material by reciting, from memory, orally, mentally or by writing your answers.

If dont understand,
Try to discuss the main points in one topic with a friend.
Try to look at copies of previous exams, which may be available in the library.

Do practice questions of the type that you will be writing - within the time limit of the actual exam.

For essay exams, practice organizing answers into a quick, short outline of the main points..focus the exam. THATS ALL.. HOPE DO THE BEST..
