Top ten: exam tips to get you through June

1. Remain calm at all times. Go for a smoke break during your exam if need be. They say a relaxing stroll can do wonders.

2. Don’t forget to bring some snacks. Exams can last a while, be sure to bring some tasty corn and nuts. The loud crunching is motivating and will help break the awkward silence of an exam venue.

3. If you don’t know the answer, feel free to ask your neighbour. Heck, why not just pull a team effort and work it out together. Apparently you will always have to do group work, why not in exams?

4. When nervous, clicking your pen exactly 22 times will help you remain calm. If you miss 22 or lose count, just start again. You have all the time in the world.

5. Don’t worry about stationary, you can always use that guy that always sits in the front and comes prepared with 50 pens. Write in yellow, brighten your markers day.

6. No need to waste time showering beforehand. If you stink, you’ll be sure you get the aisle seat so you can get a quick escape when the invigilators order pens down.

7. Never underestimate the importance of cramming. Nothing is more invigorating than last minute reading. Some say you can read 40 pages in an hour if you try hard enough.

8. Tissues aren’t eco-friendly, go green! Sniff to your heart’s content. Don’t forget to make it a deep sniff, so you keep every last ounce from running out your nose.

9. If you must bring tissues, remember to hide your notes in the pack. Writing your notes on the reverse of your water bottle label also works. But for goodness sake, please don’t bring in your hoodies, hats, or scarves. You could be cheating.

10. Sit slightly out of line from the person in front of you. It makes the invigilators excited and you will make their day better. When they tell you you’re out of line, move a little too far to the right. See how long you can keep it going.
