Year 12 Half Yearly Examinations

Preparing for your examinations

Planning your time

Around exam time it is a good idea to keep other commitments to a minimum, although it is important to allow time for exercise and recreation. Keep a reasonable routine of study, relaxation, exercise, food and sleep.

  • Draw up a study timetable well in advance and try to stick to it. Allocate your time so that all subjects are covered and you don’t neglect the hard or boring bits. Set specific tasks with deadlines.
  • Study for short periods of time, depending on what works best for you, and have regular study breaks to give your mind some other activity.
  • Be flexible, adaptable and honest with yourself – you may need to revise your study timetable depending on your progress and what you find works best for you.
  • Reward yourself by doing something that you enjoy after you have finished your set revision.

Know what to expect for the exam

  • Format – Will the exam include multiple choice, short answers, problems or long answer/essay questions? What mixture of these?
  • Length – How long will the exam be? What time should be allocated to the different sections?
  • Value – What percentage is the exam for the whole year’s work? How well are you doing in the other components of the assessment for the unit? Set yourself a realistic target result based on all the information at hand.
  • Equipment – What may you take into the examination with you? (Pens, pencils, ruler, calculator, plastic sleeve, tissues, water bottle).
