Writing the Exam

Do NOT dive immediately into the exam. Take time to read it over and strategize.
    • Take time to read through all of the directions carefully. How many questions do you need to answer? Answering too few or too many questions is a very common way to lose points.
    • Read the questions carefully and look for key words. Circle and underline as you read.
    • Choose the questions about which you can say, “I knew they would put that on the exam!”
    • Jot down key terms for the essays.
    • Make a strategy: Which questions will you answer? How much time will each get?
Try not to panic about things over which you have no control. As you study:
    • Be prepared.
    • Be confident.
    • Show what you have learned.
GOOD LUCK!
