- Get a good night’s sleep the few days before the exam
- Be prepared. Eat nutritious foods, no sugar or “empty calorie” foods.
- Set out any tools – pencil, pencil sharpener, eraser, and calculator the day before and check to see you have what you need and what is allowed to the test area.
- Ask questions of the proctor before the test begins. Be sure you know the rules.
- Be aware of the time and the number of questions so you know how much time to allocate to each question.
- If you don’t know the answer, move on, another question may answer the one you’re not sure of the answer. Many questions on multiple choice tests are repeated in different wording.
- Don’t change your first answer unless you know for sure that it was wrong.
- Go back and look for unanswered questions.
- When you have answered all the questions you can; go back or forward and answer all questions. Most of the time you will be marked wrong for unanswered questions, so answer all, even if you are simply putting something down. Chances are some will be correct!
- Use the process of elimination to get to the right answer. You may not know what the right answer is, but you can sometimes tell what the wrong answer is. When all the wrong answers have been eliminated the choice of the right answer is simpler.
