Before the examination
- Effective revision is, of course, key. The better you have prepared and practised, the more confident you will feel on the day.
- Sleep well, in order to be able to focus during your exam.
- If you need technological support for your exam (eg, in the case of dyslexia or dyspraxia), contact your department in advance.
- If you are used to typing rather than handwriting, we suggest you exercise your hand by answering questions on paper a few days prior to the exam. Otherwise, you may feel hand pain.
- Arrive at the exam location at least 15 minutes before its start.
- If you do not know where the particular building and room are, visit them in advance.
- Eat something beforehand to give you energy.
What you need to bring with you to the examination room
- Your student ID
- Three or more pens and pencils
- Water to hydrate yourself, and a snack to eat afterwards
- A watch (in case the clock is too far for you to see the time well enough)
During the examination
- Follow the instructions given by the examination coordinator
- Read the exam paper carefully
- Make use of all your time to answer the questions
