It is easy to fall into the trap of wondering how well you performed and to discuss this with your fellow students. Your time would be better spent looking ahead to your next examination.
§ Don’t panic – you won’t be the only student who is anxious about their answers
§ Don’t compare your answers with those of other students – this can create negative feelings
§ Have some fresh air and food and take time to relax before you start revising
§ Don’t rush to your textbooks to check your answers – there is no point at this stage
§ Focus on the next exam and how you might improve your exam technique
§ Have a quick look at your revision plan. Do you need to adjust it?
§ Think positive!
