Pass my exams

Writing exams is not most people's idea of fun. In fact, you'd probably rather be watching late-night infomercials than writing that Maths exam. Or wash mounds of dishes. Or go to a family reunion with hundreds of aunts, uncles and cousins you've never seen before.

Point is, exams are part of everyone's life. And there is a way of writing them to ensure that you have a fighting chance of passing them. We show you how.

Step 1.
Exam stress is a reality and you need to find out how you can minimise this. Take a look at what Cybershrink has said about ways to deal with exam stress in his two-part series examination stress, part 1 and examination part 2.

Step 2.
Getting prepared for exams also means that you need to work throughout the term and look after yourself properly, so that you don't get ill. We show you how to deal with that difficult teacher, how to improve your marks, how to boost your health during breaktime, the things you need to do if you want to make sure that you don't pass and the things you need to do to make sure that you do.

Step 3.
