Everyone feels a level of anxiety when taking exams. Attached are some tips to help you make the most of your revision time and keep any nerves you may have under control.
It’s important to remember that an examination is a test of learning, not memory. Examiners want to see evidence that you have drawn on your knowledge to develop a reasoned argument, rather than replicate course notes and textbook facts. Revision should be a process of consolidating understanding rather than cramming as much information as possible before the morning of the exam.
