How to use my time in a very time restricted exam? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey guys,

    In a month time I have an exam in chemical analysis which is 1hour. The time is not enough for the exam, even the lecturer said we would definitely run out of time on the exam and we won't finish. Sounds stressful already.
    So how o I make the best of the one hour and write as much as possible?
    Any experience? I really hate working under pressure, the exam is not difficult but if I run out of time I would get so panicked.

    My Law tutor told me this too.

    Is your exam divided into sections/topics. What we did was allow 30 minutes for each section (1h1/2). I know your exam is shorter than this but I would suggest you allow yourself a specific time to spend on each question and move on when that times up.

    And practice past papers/possible new questions under the same 1 hour time condition.
