A successful result depends on good preparation and appropriate behaviour during the examination. You should be reminded of the following tips for a successful examination:
Stay calm and focused; avoid anxiety as much as possible.
Read the instructions slowly - at least twice before you start.
Ask for clarification (if needed) from the invigilators and follow instructions as may be given by the invigilators.
Fill out personal details first (as required) before proceeding with the examination.
Select questions that you can attempt better.
Divide the time among the questions equally, to avoid running out of time.
Think properly before you write your answers.
Sketch a rough outline of answers, if possible use Mnemonic to remember the points.
Adhere to the time allocations
Attempt the necessary number of questions
Write clearly, using simple language.
