Set aside time to study and keep on top of your work, if you don't understand something then learn it so that you do understand it and when you come back to study it closer to exam time you will pick it up easily.

Get a diary so you can write down all your tests and when you are getting them so you can plan your revision ahead.

Thats not too bad then lol. I thought you meant 31 in like 2 months ..

Class tests dont even matter anyway, unless ofcourse you're 'that guy' who wants to be the best.

N4/5 isn't at all difficult. Just make sure you understand the material instead of getting bogged down by the minutiae of facts and you will do just fine.

I found the nabs more difficult to be honest at national 5 since you have to pass every outcome so if you are bad at a section then you fail that nab

That's the same for Int 2, traditional Higher and Advanced Higher though. If you don't pass an outcome, you've failed the NAB.

OP, if you just make sure you keep going over whatever you do in class at home and get yourself a fairly good study timetable together you'll be absolutely fine.

Just keep on top of everything an do all of your homework the night you get it. Check your diary regularly so that you know what you have coming up and set aside an hour or so every night to learn what you feel like you are struggling with. Remember that the exams that are really important are ages away so just keep on top of everything just now. You'll be fine as long as you don't fall behind! Also if you are struggling with anything speak to your teachers

Wow I'm in third year too xD we don't get told how many tests we have but so far they have been so easy :/ our teachers stress they are difficult but they seriously aren't! I've done quite a few so far and I have achieved full marks twice and one mark less than full 3 times. I only revised a lot for one of the tests and that was the first one I did, I then realised it was extremely easy and it didn't really affect my marks in the slightest xD. So seriously all I would say is do all your homework, highlight any important notes in your jotter and review them the few days before a test Good luck
