Exams are an unavoidable part of school life.

Everyone hates taking exams, but you can improve your study technique to avoid being caught unprepared. Here are a few tips to help avoid getting caught by exam stress.

Give yourself enough time to study. Don’t leave it until the last minute. Although some students thrive on last-minute ‘cramming’, this is not the best way to approach an exam. Studying a month before an exam can do the trick.

Take regular breaks. While you may think it’s best to study for as many hours as possible, taking regular breaks helps the information studied set in. Just don’t get lazy and take very long breaks.

Focus on studying. Avoid unnecessary distractions, such as text messages. They interfere or interrupt your studying. A simple method to avoid this is to activate flight mode on your cell phone or activate silent mode.

Snack on ‘Brain Food’. Keep away from junk food! Keep your body and brain well-fuelled by choosing nutritious foods, such as fish, nuts and blueberries. Sugar may seem appealing but it won’t keep you energised for that long.

Get enough snooze. Staying up all night is the worst thing you could do. Everyone needs sleep before an exam because it refreshes the brain for the next day, so always get enough sleep for a healthy mind.

These reliable and personally tested tips are essential for any student wanting to cope with exam stress and ensure exam success. By following these tips you will not only strengthen your knowledge, but you will also strengthen your brain. The brain is a powerful muscle and anything can be done with it.
