1. Revision

Everyone feels nervous about taking exams. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your revision time and keep those nerves under control.

It’s important to remember that an examination is a test of learning, not memory. Examiners want to see evidence that you have drawn on your knowledge to develop a reasoned argument, rather than replicate course notes and textbook facts. Revision should be a process of consolidating understanding rather than cramming as much information as possible before the morning of the exam.

2. Study skills

Where to study

Creating good conditions to study in can help you make the most of the time you spend revising. Here are some suggestions:

•    Find a quiet place to study and make sure you are sitting comfortably

•    Make sure your desk is well lit

•    Keep background noise to a minimum

•    Avoid studying in an area where there will be distractions (like television!)

•    Have everything you need to do your revision to hand before you start
