The run up to a major exam can be awfully nerve wrecking. Don’t worry; if you find yourself getting worried anxious before a big exam you are certainly not the only one; and you will not be the last. It is a natural reaction to something that can have a massive impact on your life! However, our advice is to not let the run up to the exam worry you so much that you stop performing and that you stop studying and preparing for an exam. If studying maths then attending an A Level Maths Revision Course will certainly prove to be useful.

Normally, it is the nerves that can stop people from putting in extra effort; however it is vital that you override these nerves and continue to study, and mentally prepare yourself.

For many, the night before a big maths exam can certainly be utilised well to ensure that your chances of exam success are increased. Do not let it go to waste!

So, what can you do the night before to support your chances of maths revision success?

The Top Secrets!

Eat a nutritious Meal – Eating a healthy meal the night before an exam can really help you make a great start for the next day. Try to avoid empty calories such as fast food, sweets and sugars. Aim for slow burning carbohydrates and proteins. Things like fatty fish, pastas and pulses make for a great nutritional plan. These will ensure that you have plenty of good nutrients in your body for the next day, and will ensure that your brain and your whole system will work as effectively and efficiently as possible. Always avoid drinking alcohol the night before an exam also. Sure, you may be tempted to have one beer or a glass of wine as a mini celebration but these an have an adverse effect further down the line.

Go Over Final Notes –  Now is your chance to once more go over your notes and to fine tune some of your working memory. Don’t get too swamped down in studying too hard as the stresses of this can really put people on edge; which is not ideal the night before an exam. Just take some time, an hour at most, to read through your notes. Look through the key books that you have highlighted and just read and study at your own pace.

Downtime Is Important

Relax – This is the most vital tip of ours. Be sure to take the time to sit down, and spend time relaxing. Do something you love; watch a comedy film, play a computer game, or listen to music. Anything that can help you to relax and to switch off. The more you can relax, the better.
