We know how busy you all are so we will not hold you here for too long…..we do not want to be the reason for your procrastination! But we do need to send you some hints and tips to assist with your exam prep!
• Make sure you know the room and time! – Check this the night before
• Ensure that you are eating healthy – have a full healthy breakfast and/or lunch before you leave home – you do not want the hunger pains and distractions while the exam clock is ticking.
• Come in for your exam a little early just to be sure you make it. The last minute stress of finding a park or running for the train can be avoided.
• Bring your student ID!
