    Be positive! You'll feel more confident about your exams with a good attitude. Imagine a lovely, shiny list of A*s on results day!

    Be calm! There's no reason to stress if you've put the work in.

    Be organised! Have a realistic schedule and make sure your notes are in the right order.

    Be relaxed! Take breaks, use relaxation techniques. Write down your worries and think of how to solve them.

    Make yourself start! Don't just say, "Oh, just a few more minutes of chilling out" - start NOW!

    Stop and take a break if you feel frustrated or overloaded. Move on and come back to issues you face.

    Reward yourself! Buy yourself something or dedicate yourself chill time after each block of revision.

    Rereading, summarising, highlighting - it's not effective. Do past papers. Practise questions. Go over arguments and themes.

    Drink water, frequent exercise, brain food.

    SLEEP!

    Once an exam is over with, forget about it, there's nothing you can do about it.
