Sitting through an entrance exam can be stressful and nerve-racking however, in order to be less stressed out it is best to go prepared.
If you are applying to one of the Brisbane girls private schools in the city then you will likely have to sit through an entrance exam to determine whether or not you will get in. In order to make the exam easier and a less stressful process for you, there are certain things you can do. For example, you can study. You should first inquire about the martial that you will be tested on and then you will be able to study accordingly.
Having a study plan will be helpful to you as it will allow you to set aside time during the day to dedicate to studying. It is also important that you are aware of the exact date of the practice exam. This will be helpful as then you will be able to set goals for yourself before the exam. When setting a study time for yourself you should make times that work best for you. For instance, if you are someone who can study better in the mornings than in the nights then you should set aside time in the morning to study and leave the evening’s or the nights for you to get your other work done. It is important that you find a time that best suits you because only then will it be effective. If you feel you are too sleepy to study in the mornings and if you think that nothing is going into your head then the nights may be a more effective time for you to study.
Before you go for your exam you should make sure that you have everything that you need. For instance, if you have a mathematics exam then carrying a calculator with you is important. If you forget to take a calculator the school will likely give you one, however, it could take time to find a calculator and this may cause you to get stressed out due to the given time running out. You may even be annoyed or frustrated at yourself for forgetting to bring a calculator which could cause you to lose focus. Therefore it is best to make sure that you have all the necessary supplies with you.
Be On Time
Being on time for an entrance exam is important as it not only shows punctuality but it will also result in you being less stressed out. If you were to arrive late for the exam you will likely be even more nervous and may take time to settle down and focus. Therefore being on time can also give you time to mentally prepare for the exam that you are about to sit.
Especially if the exam is a long one then it would be a good idea to carry a bottle of water with you. If you were to get thirsty during the exam it could take your focus off the paper that is in front of you and instead put the focus on your thirst.
