      Dealing with exams


    1. Always remeber you are not the only one taking the exam.
    2. Everyone is as worried as you are or even worst, but as humans some of us cover the fear.
    3. Study what is required , eg with syllabus or ask the teacher in charge what is required.
    4. Always make time for a break inbetween your studies.
    5. During the exams try beening calm as much as possible, forget about how intelligent the others are and concentrate on what you know.
    6. Read the paper properily; at each question write what the examiner wants and not what you think he wants.
    7. After the exam, avoid discussing about the exam, instead concentrate on the following one.
    8. After all the exams always learn how to switch off, by joining other activities outside your studies.
    This balance would help you focus on the following term or semester.
    9. When you get the results, don't allow excellient results get to your head or failure to your heart.
