- Should you be permitted the use of notes, USE them, but I cannot over-emphasize this enough- DO NOT READ OFF YOUR NOTES, you cannot physically be given anything higher than a merit shall you make the mistake off reading or relying too much on your notes.
- On the topic of notes, I presume you have your questions and answers all figured out, replace a few words that you know you can revolve around a lot with synonyms found on a site such as Thesarus.
- Context, another point needed to get higher than a Merit, when I was being examined, I spoke about how "the Elizabethan-era was a patriarchal society, where men... bla bla bla", a couple of these points jotted on to the end of your answers will get you the top marks.
- Be confident. For some, it is easier said than done, try pretend you are in a TV interview situation or, damn, a TV show if need be, just forget about the camera and maintain eye contact throughout, whenever applicable, try change the tone of your voice dependant on different emotions. Ever seen a talk-show guest? Act like them.
- Body language is a predominate theme on the specification, make sure you use your hands, facial expressions, stomp your foot if you must, just make sure you qualify and meet the requirements.
(after reading back upon my points, I realise I seem to have conveyed a 'drill-sergeant'-like attitude, sorry not what I was intending )
Also, I may have missed a few points, however I hope that it is generally useful.
