    Well if you're only making silly mistakes - there's nothing much you can do except keep calm, and always read the question. If you have time at the end of the paper, so some of the questions you're not sure of again from scratch, to avoid anything silly. Also, don't get cocky at the easier questions. I nearly got question 1 wrong in my maths exam because I wrote 5 3/5 instead of 1 3/5 . Good thing I checked my work near the end!

    do the questions carefully and do not rush. and maybe if you still have enough time in the end of the exam, redo each of the question to make sure that youve got the right calculations? good luck for your exam !

    Sometimes highlighting key parts of the question helps me to focus and fully absorb and understand the key parts of the question. (I got a 9 last year btw) Good luck!

    Glad to be useful Even using a highlighter in revision can help you get used to focusing so you may or may not need it in the real thing, just depends what works for you
