First Answers are the best answers

It is nerve wracking to take an exam especially if it is an important one. I have come across a lot of important exams and the most important tip I have ever learned is not to change my answers especially when I read the question right. If you reread a question and it still makes the same sense to you but you feel like changing your answers- Don't!!!! Just try it and you will be surprised at the results.

Second, make sure you have a good night sleep. Know that accurate judgment relies on a sound sleep and a functioning brain. Studies have shown that a well rested brain makes you think clearly thus rest your brain. Study all you can but take at least 7 hours of rest then just let go of everything.

Lastly, make sure you go to school early and just relax. Try to scan your notes for confidence but know that last minute scanning would not matter much. Just enjoy the test and be confident while taking it. After all, you only take it once, so you might as well enjoy it!
