The final countdown to an exam can be a very stressful time for many students. What to Do 24 Hours Before an Exam. aims to give you the advice you need to make this challenging time a little easier.

1. Test Yourself.

Many students tend to ‘cram’ the night before an exam. If you’ve been consistently revising, you won’t need to do this. Instead, we recommend using this time to complete some exam style questions. You can use exam papers, flashcards, or the Pre-Exam Checklist, in our comprehensive notes, which is the perfect tool to help you prepare for your exams.

If you haven’t been consistently revising, you should try and get in a little bit of study. Focus on the bigger picture in each topic, and don’t dive into the specifics, as you won’t have time to study large amounts of information.

2. Sleep.

Getting a good nights sleep is essential the night before an exam. Go to bed early and don’t stay up late studying. Try reading a book to take your mind off the exam, if you’re struggling to fall asleep.

3. Be Prepared.

On the morning of the exam, make sure you pack all of the materials you need in your bag. This includes pens, pencils, a ruler and a calculator. You should also remember to bring a bottle of water and a healthy lunch.

Before you go, eat a good breakfast and leave earlier than usual to ensure you are not late for the exam.

4. Stay Focused.

When you enter the exam hall, take a deep breath. Focus on the paper in front of you, and try to avoid any distractions that may be around you. Begin the exam by taking a look through the paper. Identify a question that you feel confident in, and complete this question first.

5. Move On.

After you have completed the exam, try not to think back over where you went wrong. Avoid talking with others about the exam and move on.
