Examination Tips:

Before the Examination

  • Get to bed early the night before the examination. Remember, your brain and body need sleep to function well.
  • Do not skip breakfast on the morning of the examination. Fresh fruits and vegetables are often recommended to reduce stress.
  • Parents need to encourage their children and provide positive feedback that will help them to relax before the examination. It is important for parents to remain calm and positive even when their children feel anxious, to build students’ confidence.
  • Get to school or your centre early on the morning of the examination.
  • Display a positive attitude.
  • Manage your anxiety by breathing slowly to calm down.

During the Examination

  • Read the instructions carefully. Make sure you are shading answers correctly and that the number you are shading corresponds to the question number.
  • Manage your time wisely.
  • If you go blank, skip the question and move on.
  • Do not get worried or frustrated if a problem seems tricky. Re-read the question to make sure you understand it. Do not panic.
  • Review your answers thoroughly.
