Exams and tests can be stressful, but there are some simple ways to prepare for exams and keep your cool at the same time, that will take the strain out of the situation.

I remember what it was like when I was sitting exams and I see my students feeling the strain every year when the exam season approaches.2

Some people really struggle under the pressure so here are some ways to prepare for exams that may help.

1. Main Points

One of the tips which helped me through revision hell and is one of the great ways to prepare for exams, is to revise the main points and the most difficult information first.

These general ideas and concepts will help you to understand some of the detailed points on which you might be tested.

Try the "cover and scribe" method which basically involves reading through the information, closing your book and then seeing how much you can remember.

Writing it down will help you remember too, rather than just reading through your notes which sometimes doesn't help.

Another great tip which certainly worked for me, is to read your notes before you go to sleep.

The information seems to stay in your memory when it is read right before going to sleep.
