Make sure you read exam questions carefully. Be aware of how many questions you have to answer, how many marks are allocated to each, and answer enough to get the marks. Attempt to answer all questions if you can to increase the marks you could be given.
Look through the exam questions, assess how much time you can spend on them, and allow a few minutes at the end of the exam to read through your paper to check your answers. Make sure you haven’t missed any questions on the back of the exam paper.
It is a good idea to ask yourself: What is the best thing I can do to resolve this problem? If there’s an obvious sensible solution, do it. If there isn’t, take some time to sit down and brainstorm some possible options.
Working through a problem one step at a time can make you aware of lots of possible solutions, increasing your likelihood of getting what you want and helping you to feel more in control. It can be helpful to get ideas from others, like family and friends.
Hurt people hurt people, however healed people heal people. If you work on your issues and work towards healing, you will feel able to go out into the world and spread that good energy that comes from you feeling healed.
We should stop ourselves from jumping to conclusions and not let misunderstandings become false facts we pass judgement on. Instead, commit to simply asking questions and then seek to understand one another’s views to eliminate grudges before they begin.
Jumping to conclusions and holding a grudge is like locking yourself in prison for a crime you think someone else committed, and doing it before you’ve even investigated to know if a crime actually took place or not.
To manage stress you can: learn to relax; take a deep breath; practise acceptance; talk rationally to yourself; get organised; exercise; manage your time; have quiet time; watch your habits; know your limits; talk to others about it; practise visualisation.
