3. Schedule in regular breaks: However behind you think you are, working all day every day is not going to be any use. Set yourself some targets and reward yourself with a break when you complete them. Take this time to go outside, stretch your legs or head to the Robbo café for that well-earned yet incredibly average sandwich. Your brain physically won’t be able to handle all of the information without allowing it to rest and, if you don’t schedule in breaks, I’m sure your attention span will give you one anyway.
4.Make sure you get enough sleep:
All-nighters may seem necessary when you’re faced with a pile of unread books and only a matter of days before your exam but, in reality, it’s probably better for you to get a good night’s sleep than force yourself to sit up in the library all night. Sleeping well will make you more productive overall rather than letting yourself fall into a zombie-like state.

I know this seems obvious but organisation really is the key. If you follow these other steps, especially making the timetable, you should already be most of the way there but make sure you don’t forget things like making sure you have the correct stationary and familiarising yourself with the format of the exam. Being organised is the most important thing to help you remain calm and combat the exam stress demon.
