T’was the Night Before Test Day
Do you have a big test or exam coming up?
Review these suggestions to make the most of the hours before your big event.
TIPS FOR TEST DAY — AND THE NIGHT BEFORE
Exercise before an exam to manage your stress level.
Take a break from studying as the exam time approaches. Do something fun for a few hours.
Pack your backpack or school bag on the night before your exam. Bring everything you need: admission ticket, 3-4 lead pencils, an eraser, 2 ink pens, a sweater (in case it’s cold in the test room).
Set your alarm, and have a back up alarm.
Sleep well the night before the exam.
Get up early enough on test day to do a quick content review.
Try to stay relaxed.
Learn no new material on the day of the exam.
Eat! Don’t take a big test on an empty stomach. Eat complex carbs and some protein. Hydrate – but not too much!
Plan your travel to the test location: directions, parking, public transit, time needed. Arrive 10-15 minutes early for your test.
Get psyched! You are ready. You have prepared for this test.
You can do it!
