Three Dimension of Exam Preparation are as follows: physical, academic and mental & emotional.
Let’s break them down.

Physical preparation
Firstly organise your work space, separate your work from your relaxation space-this will help you to focus when you need to work and relax when it is time to relax.
Ensure that you have all the basic study material- writing material, course and class notes. Make sure your notes are up to date and no sections are missing.
Create a learning environment- Organise your working area, for example a table, chair and computer if necessary. Surround yourself with positive messages.
Healthy Living-an important part of test and exam preparation is ensuring that you are taking time to look after yourself. Healthy eating, sleeping and exercising.

Academic Preparation
Start organising your time-plan for exams well in advance. Starting early and studying on a regular basis will make learning easier and less stressful. Draw up study plan and manage your time accordingly.
Don’t procrastinate or cram: cramming or cross-nighting are the opposites of effective studying. Draw up a weekly timetable and select prime time to study or revise. Make sure you manage your revision time.
Spend time going through past papers or make your own.

Mental & Emotional Preparation
Self-care is also important part of test/exam preparation.
Become aware of your anxiety and stress levels, keep self-care as a priority, no matter how much work you have to do, ensure you allow yourself for rest and relaxation. Remind yourself to stop and breathe. Keep focused and motivated.
