Remember That Nobody Is Perfect
Exam is not actually the true test of knowledge.
Although, this does not mean anyone should fail woefully.
Failing in school will make your parents disappointed.
Yes they actually did, but you don’t have to toil the same the line first.
Since nobody is perfect, strive to strike a balance between everything you do.
Finally, don’t get weighed down by what people say about you.
Manage Your Time Well
You may have not been studying and its few weeks to exam but the good part is that there is still a small time left.
Don’t give excuse and give up that the exam is already too close.
Learn to manage your time well,

But because you are matured enough and can handle stress and pressure, you are there.
Therefore, no need to rush, keep your cool and prepare.
The time remaining will be enough to get at least an A.
I believe in you and so you have to believe in your self.
Always Appear Bright For Any Exam
I have seen instances where several students don’t take their bath to the exam hall. (Cedric, Palmer,Anderson).
While this is not bad or good, I believe they think they are doing the right thing and it works for them.
May smell never be associated with you in Jesus name.
Behave like Tejiri who wears suit to the exam hall.
Tejiri is one of my course mate who always look dope and confident going into the hall.
In case you want to know, he is a very bright student.
You can look good and be very successful in an exam.
You do not necessarily need to have sleep over on your books first.
It is often said by one of my friend Silas ( An Electrical Engineer) that if you are not informed, you will be deformed oh!!.
Likewise, it is quite critical to have complete information about your exam.
I have seen several cases where students missed their examinations because they think it’s an evening or afternoon paper and so on.
Be kept abreast with the most recent changes to your time table.
Finally, don’t forget to be in the hall like 30 minutes before exam to enable you settle.
Take Breaks In Between Study Sessions
I have written about this in how to study effectively.
It will be a crime to go over it again.

Note Your Challenges
A closed mouth is a closed destiny.
If you have challenge in any area f your course, endeavor to speak out before the exam.
You can meet you class mates or your lecturers to help you out in that particular area.
You can also plan to have group studies with you mates.
Plan Your Study hours
Everyone has a time or period where he/she performs optimally.
Use this time to plan your study hours.
Pick out time to reverse.
Your revision is often the last thing you have settled for as your own examiner that will be set.
You can’t afford to take it unseriously.
Plan it properly and set time in a specific cool spot clear of distractions.
That’s all on the 7 Best ways to overcome examination fear and boost confidence.
