Exam survival Tip #1
Plan for success
Some people think that others are lucky. I’ll let you into a big secret, luck doesn't just happen.You need to plan for success, be able to communicate clearly to influence the outcome of luck. Take control and start planning for success.
- Get in the right frame of mind. Don’t wait until the last minute. Start now by making a revision timetable. Stick to it. Get up early and get your study out of the way. Reward yourself in the afternoon with something fun.
- Write down the exams that you have, the dates and times that you need to sit them. Make a revision plan and timetable. You might want to give some exams more time than others.
- Set goals and treat yourself to little rewards when you reach each goal. Don’t cheat and make your goals too easy. Find a balance that you feel comfortable with that allows you to have some time off – guilt free!
