Here are the things you should be doing to prepare for your exams with one week to go.


1. Identify your strengths and weaknesses
You'll probably find that, if you've been busy bringing your weaknesses up to scratch, your strengths and weakneses have changing in relation to each other.

2. Study in focused bursts and take breaks
By now you should know how long you can focus for before you take a break. This could be anything from 20 to 60 minutes.

3. Choose a topic for each study session
Start each study session knowing what you're going to focus on in that time. Don't sit down aimlessly thinking ‘I must get some revision done,' not knowing what you're going to study.
 

4. Finesse your exam technique
Hopefully you've been doing lots of past papers for weeks. If you haven't, you can't leave it any longer. You can't neglect your exam technique any longer.

5. Get help with anything you still don't understand

Pester your teacher, find a different text book in the library or look it up online. It's your responsibility to make sure that you understand every aspect of the syllabus for every subject.

6. Get plenty of sleep
Sleep is vital for making sure all that good learning you've been doing is fixed in your head.

7. Eat well
Try to eat healthy meals and snacks – feed your body with goodness the way you're feeding your mind with knowledge.

8. Exercise
Scientists are always coming up with new proof that exercise helps your brain.

9. Know the logistics
You should already know, but if you don't, find out when and where all your exams are going to be. Also make sure that you're able to get there on time.
 

10. Relax!
 It also stops you from feeling like a revision machine.
