Make sure it's a song that really doesn't suit your vocal range, and then try and sing really expressively. The next thing you know, you'll be auditioning for pop idol.
Before my last exam (English Lit), me and my friends were just randomly saying quotes from our books!
If i'm sure ive done everything i possibly can, then i dont...which is practically never. i find it does help...and the thing ive just read over always seems to pop up.
Yes, I do this normally. Hell, better some revision than none at all. You might remember a few useful facts.
Listening to music when im in the car on the way to the exam helps,
I listen to minimilistic music by people like steve reich which has absolutely no structure but sort of puts me in a trance like state where I am absolutely relaxed before the exam.
Minimalist music would put me to sleep, or my brain would forget I'd done my Music GCSE and start thinking about its features!
I am a nervous person, so I probably wind other people up. Well the thing is, I'd be arriving in school at about 1, so I'd have the whole morning to do something!
I have to revise in the morning before an exam it recaps things which could come up.
my french oral was probably the most painful 15 minutes of my life.
Morning revision is awesome for me. I came in before a morning exam, and just went over everything I learned in my head and was pleasantly surprised that I remembered it all. However, if I was to have forgotten I would just have read it over as being so close to the exam your likely to remember it, stored in short-term memory, which is all you need at that stage.
Next week I have an exam in the afternoon and I fully intend to spend a couple of hours reciting everything I know off by heart. It is amazingly calming when you finish and realise you know your stuff. Then you can sit there quietly and smile at others around you having a heart attack...good times...
We were allowed to miss the lessons before our oral exam, or the lesson it was in, especially if it was a different language lesson.
I do not revise the morning before an afternoon exam. Infact I don't revise the night before either. I find that if I don't know it the night before I am not going to know it. When I had a politics exam in January I went out to drama the evening before and then had a nice lie in the following morning before going to school for the exam...
