Review these suggestions to make the most of the hours before your big event.

 

 

TIPS FOR TEST DAY — AND THE NIGHT BEFORE

 

  1. Exercise before an exam to manage your stress level.
  2. Take a break from studying as the exam time approaches.  Do something fun for a few hours.
  3. Pack your backpack or school bag on the night before your exam.  Bring everything you need:  admission ticket, 3-4 lead pencils, an eraser, 2 ink pens, a sweater (in case it’s cold in the test room).
  4. Set your alarm, and have a back up alarm.
  5. Sleep well the night before the exam.
  6. Get up early enough on test day to do a quick content review. 
  7. Try to stay relaxed.
  8. Learn no new material on the day of the exam.
  9. Eat!  Don’t take a big test on an empty stomach.  Eat complex carbs and some protein.  Hydrate – but not too much!  🙂
  10. Plan your travel to the test location:  directions, parking, public transit, time needed.  Arrive 10-15 minutes early for your test.
  11. Get psyched!  You are ready.  You have prepared for this test.

 

Good luck on your exams!
