Students often become oppressed when preparing for exams and try to cram everything they need to know a day before they need to write. 
How to prepare yourself for an upcoming exam?

# Create a schedule:
This is a helpful method to mentally prepare yourself before the exams. You can be creative when creating your own schedule and you will most likely be more eager and devoted to studying. It is important to allocate sufficient amounts of hours to a particular subject to become familiar with the content, especially if it is a subject that you are struggling with.

# Organize your study space:
Try to avoid a cluttered and distracting environment when studying and ensure that you are as comfortable and focused as possible. Ensure that all your material and textbooks are well organized and easily accessible. 

# Study smartly:
Once all your notes have been prepared, it will be helpful to spend time practicing potential exam-style questions. Another helpful tip is to use coloured pens, highlighters, mind maps and flowcharts which helps with remembering important facts. Studying sufficiently can save you a lot of time, which allows you to move onto another subject. 

# Take regular breaks:
Students should never try and cram everything in all at once just to get done. Everyone is different when it comes to studying and being productive, decide which time of the day your mind is most proactive. Studying can have a huge impact on your mental health and it is important to reward yourself with a well deserved break. 

# Create a study group:
Everyone has their own way of learning that can be useful as each student can provide information, however this may not work for everyone. It is also an effective way of challenging yourself as it encourages creative thinking to gain a better understanding of the material. 

All the above mentioned tips and having the right attitude can boost your confidence, eliminate anxious thoughts and feelings towards the upcoming exams.
