Spanish GCSE and A level exams

Tips to do well in your exams

GCSE and A-level exam is fast approaching. Now is the time to do exam revision and learn key exam skills.

Revision can help us to gain confidence on exam day. Revision is a crucial part of the learning process. It enables us to develop our written and communicative skills, identify and solidify our understanding and work on our strengths and weaknesses. 

Firstly, focus on an active revision, rather than simply reading through your notes in order to memorise them, and you’ll go into your exams better prepared and more confident.

Tips on preparing for exams.

Here are 7 (the perfect number) top tips to be the best in your Spanish exams and overcome stress and anxiety.

  1. Follow a diary routine. By having an established routine you can be more effective and obtain better results. It is probably the key to avoiding stress and remembering concepts and ideas easily.
  2. Learn how to manage your time with a plan. A personalized study plan is a useful tool to save time and keep yourself organized. By knowing exactly what and when to study you can reduce the stress that comes with uncertainty. Personally, I like to organize myself with weekly plans. I establish a plan adapted and with the best structure (depending on the week) to be productive and to keep myself on task.
  3. Organise your materials. You can get to work faster without wasting time looking for stuff. Everything seems easier when everything is tidy. Don’t waste your time looking for stuff and take these minutes to get a breath of fresh air!
  4. Keep doing revisions! Revisions will help you to identify areas of strength and weakness. Determine what you know and what still you need to study, gain practice, feel confident and ready for your exam.
  5. Take small breaks. Recovering from work is good for restoring energy and decreasing fatigue. Go for a walk, do some stretching, take a tea! This will help you to put your ideas in order, think and gain energy to continue with more enthusiasm.
  6. Get enough rest. If your brain or body needs a short or long break feel free to rest. Resting for a couple of hours or even for a whole day or weekend can be a healer. Enjoy the moment without feeling guilty. Don’t forget to sleep at least 7 hours per day!
  7. Seek out help when needed. During your exams, you may need extra support to help cope with exams. An extra hand can be a motivational push because feel a little bit of stress is normal but remember it’s okay to ask for help any time.
