- Have a good night rest the day before. Ensure a minimum 7hours of rest to keep your mind working at optimum condition.
- Have a good breakfast in the morning. It will power your body as it starts itself up in the morning. A hungry stomach will also distract you during the exam.
- Ensure all stationary are prepared. Wear a watch in order to keep track of time.
- Before the exam, stays calm and clears your mind of any last-minute revision. Walk into the exam hall confidently as it will sub-consciously increase your mental performances before the exam.
- Plan your time well. Go through the paper by glancing through the questions before attempting it. Get a feel of how much time you need to allocate for each segment.
- Read every question at least twice. This helps you understands what the question requires you to answer and how you should phrase your answer.
- Never let any difficult question slows you down. Make a mark against it so you can track it later and move on to the next question. Come back and attempt this question after you have completed the rest.
- Keep note of the time, if there is a shortage of time, choose and answer easier questions first. Do not let the pressure overwhelms you, keep your composure.
- Double check for spelling errors, calculation errors, transfer errors (eg transferring of wrong digits from question to workings) and etc.
- Make sure all your answer scripts are accounted for. You do not want to be accused of cheating or just plainly forgetting to submit any part of your answer scripts.
