Anxiety Management

There are very few exceptions to there being anxiety and stress in and around important exams and, while a little anxiety is helpful, too much stress can only disrupt attention and focus and the ability to perform in an exam as well as would be expected.  Managing anxiety and stress and overcoming their disruptive influences on performance is a key survival and performance skill for exam success.

Last-Minute-Tips-on-Exam-Strategy

Assessing Your Learning

Assessment is one of the most powerful and under-used tools in education and anyone preparing for and taking exams needs to be able to rely on their own ability to assess their learning and use that assessment in managing their study, their learning, and their exam strategy.

Time Managment

Time management in the exam room is a very common problem and arises for a variety of reasons, some predictable and some down to events and decisions on the day.  But time management can be improved and is critical to exam success.
