Exam Preparation

Most students will start exam preparation about six weeks before exams:

Set your goals

In each subject set a specific goal: a mark or class placing or both.

How much work, in what areas of the subject, will be necessary to achieve your goals?

Know the exam format

Examine previous exams.  How are they are organised?  How are instructions and questions worded, what are the sections, and how are marks allocated? Find out if the format of this exam will be the same.

Don’t take anything for granted.  Check your understanding of the content and format of the exam with someone else in the class, preferably the teacher.
