Top 10 Tips for Taking College Exams

  1. Arrive early. Make sure you know the location and time of your exam. Get there early to give yourself enough time to settle down before the exam starts.
  2. Be awake for the test. Ideally, getting a good night’s rest is always encouraged before an exam; however, realistically, we all know that can’t always happen. Other options are to shower in the morning, chew gum, to have a caffeinated drink. Always be cautious when consuming caffeinated drinks, you don’t want to be jittery for the test.
  3. Eat a small breakfast. You’ll want to minimize any possible distractions during the test. It’ll be more difficult to concentrate if you’re hungry. Don’t eat anything that may upset your stomach.
  4. Bring extra writing utensils. You never know when your pencil’s going to break or run out of lead or your pen’s going to run out of ink.
  5. Bring all essential test materials. There’s nothing worse than forgetting to bring a calculator or notes to an exam. Professors usually won’t have extras or allow you to share with another classmate.
  6. Go to the bathroom. Self-explanatory. This is another precaution to minimize distractions during the test.
  7. Wear comfortable clothes. You’ll want to be comfortable taking the test. Popular choices are sweatpants and hoodies.
  8. Bring any necessities. Bring a water bottle, tissues, cough drops, etc.
  9. Look over your notes. Review important information again before the test to refresh your memory.
  10. It’s just a test. Remember that you studied hard and have confidence in yourself.
