If your test is early in the morning be sure to get a good breakfast. If it’s during your regular lunchtime, eat a snack or a small lunch before. It will be harder to focus if your stomach is growling, and you could end up with a headache.
The world won’t end and your friends won’t abandon you if you skip one night out or miss a sporting event. Even if you feel under-prepared, don’t be tempted to pull an all-nighter. Not getting a good night’s sleep the night before an exam will make it harder to remember what you studied, even if you spent looking it over.
DON’T PROCRASTINATE. Seriously. Just don’t. Try to study a little bit for several days before the test rather than a lot the day before the test. If you took good notes and you study them, you’ll do fine!
Professors are there to help. If you meet with them, make an effort in class, and still don’t do well on the exam they will be way more open to working something out because you showed that you tried.
Make sure to organize it so you can quickly find whatever fact or formula you need. Color code it, label it, do what you have to do!
Don’t waste time staring at the question, you’ll just get flustered and frustrated. You can always come back to it later if you have time. It’s better to spend time on questions you do know than those you don’t.
Start with the essay or short answer questions and finish with the multiple choice ones. You don’t want to rush on the questions that are worth the most points.
Check your answers and be sure that you didn’t skip anything. However, its important not to second guess yourself, be confident in your answers. If you had essay questions double check your spelling and grammar as well.
Feeling stumped right away can make you frustrated and flustered. Try starting with a question you know to maintain confidence.
It’s school policy to make accommodations for students who need them! Often this involves taking the test at in a different, less distracting environment or allowing for extra time. Don’t be embarrassed about any of these things. A lot of professors can relate and only want to see you succeed! Just be sure to approach them about this at the beginning of the semester, not right before a test.
This one should be obvious. Colleges take cheating very seriously and punishment can go as far as expulsion. If you didn’t study well try to answer as best you can and try harder on other tests and assignments. One test grade isn’t going to make or break you, but getting kicked out of college will.
