Final Exam Basic Tips

Final Exam Basic Tips

Here's a couple of basic tips and reminders to be successful on your exams:

KNOW YOUR STUFF! Ask your teacher questions. Complete your exam review.

GET A GOOD SLEEP! Students write a better exam if they have had enough sleep to allow them to concentrate.

EAT A GOOD BREAKFAST! Students write a better exam if their mind is not occupied with being hungry

KNOW YOUR LOCATION! All Final Exams at STM are written in classrooms. Review your location with your teacher so that you are not running around on the morning of your exam.

KNOW HOW LONG YOUR EXAM IS! All Final Exams at STM begin at 8:10 am (students should be at their location by 8:05am). Grade 9 Exams are typically 1.5 hours long. Grade 10 and 11 Exams are anywhere between 1.5 hours and 2 hours in length. Grade 12 Exams are anywhere between 2 hours and 2.5 hours in length.

KNOW WHAT MATERIALS YOU'LL NEED! Bring lots of pens, pencils, an eraser, a ruler. Think about the subject your exam is representing: Will you need a calculator? Will you need a formula sheet? Will you need a protractor? When in doubt, ask your teacher what you should bring.
