    Just try your best - do as much as possible but don't stay up until 4am working, and take regular breaks.

    School was never about how smart you were. It was about how easily you be assimilated into social constructs, law.
    A specific way of thinking is what examiners want. The best point of reference to use is usually your teacher if they are competent.
    Learning alone can only get you so far if you don't know whats coming up and what points or examples the examiners want you to make.
    True intelligence is quite different from school and i cant even define it myself.. But i can definitely say its not school.

    Basically my advice is to first ask your teacher for what to learn.
    You might spend your time on useless things relative to a examine.
