    Remember to read the question properly and try to get the inferred meaning of the text and not necessarily what is written.

    Go over your sentence structures, technical devices and discourse markers.

    Then worry about the basic stuff, remember to set out your paragraphs with a line between, give yourself time to check your work at the end if you can. Check your spellings etc.

    Smiling helps with the nerves and breathing evenly helps the brain work.

    Try and get a good nights sleep before hand and arrive before you need to get to the exam. Take any sick meds if you need to.

    You can have a clear water bottle in the exam with you, and the pencil case can be clear - we had to put both on the floor anyhow.

    Good luck,
