Oh yay. Who doesn't love a good ol' exam. The stress, the panic when you haven't studied, the overall fact of remembering things you did 6 months ago. What an amazing feeling.
I was being sarcastic if you couldn't tell.
Anyway, I know some of you out there are doing GCSE's and A-levels (I think the American equivalent to A-levels is AP's, no idea what that is I just googled it HA), so I know they are stressful to don't worry I am not going to go on about my exams . But I wanted to share my tips on how I have survived and studied for exams so far, (Although saying that I'm meant to be studying now but oh well.)
1) DO NOT PANIC!!
Even if it is GCSE's, these exams will NOT change your life. You can't study efficiently if you are shaking at the fact of even thinking of physics. So long as you don't procrastinate, there's really nothing to worry about.
2) Study, study, study
Not 24/7, however studying will decrease your stress if you have revised a lot. You will feel more *organised*.
3) Sleep, seriously.
Yes you need to study, but don't be staying up till midnight doing last minute revision. If you haven't studied, then fine, its better than staying up till 2 am. Nothing will go in your head and you will be tired the next day.
4) Take breaks!
Again, don't be revising all day and night. Take a break (Hamilton reference anyone), go for a walk, meet up with friends and revise together, don't be sat isolated in you room all day.
5) FLASH CARDS
I know this is a personal opinion, however flash cards are the thing which have got me through most tests. However, to save paper and have them all together i prefer online ones. I uses quizlet and tiny cards by duolingo. Tiny cards is my personal favourite because you do it in little bits and can customise it way more, plus its not just flicking through the cards, you have multiple choice answers and writing answers. Anyway, enough said but you can go find my quizlet and tiny cards profile here:

Good luck to anyone with tests and I hope my tips help!
This Page is what I will mainly post on. Here I will write about my daily life, kind of like a diary online!
