    I make sure to get enough sleep the night before and then just go over areas I know need more work than others, and maybe a past paper or two before the exam.

    Read through the text book for 1-2 hours
    Bang out past papers like there's no tomorrow
    But leave enough time for a good 8 hour sleep, down 1-2 red bulls in the morning

    i would do LOTS of exam questions. Make mindmaps and read through them out loud so it can get to your mind easily.

    A past paper just before which I don't mark because if I failed I'll panic majorly. Generally just go over and make sure I know what I need to know.

    I've already done loads of past papers and I want to revise to remind myself of stuff again not start afresh in a short amount of time. Thanks for the mindmap tips though. I just did a couple for chemistry in two days for conditions like haber process etc lol

    look at the ones you find difficult and read it out loud so you can remember it quickly or write it out hundreds of times until you know it of by heart,
    you can also make flashcard and write simle notes (don't over complicate it or u will confuse ur self)

    I'd second not marking them that close to the exam. If there's things you don't know, you are probably aware that you don't know them and so panicking yourself isn't a good idea. It's just good practise to do the questions and get into the swing of things. Good luck!

    Yep! Especially if you're really pumped for an exam and feeling well about it, it can turn everything around (last thing you want if you're in the zone :cool:). Though one time it happened that I finished a paper at 8:30 and the exam startes at 9:30 :rofl:
