Some practical tips for your exam day

Exams can be stressful, but there are ways to reduce that - mostly through planning, studying hard and being well prepared. Here are some practical tips to help you on the day:

  • Know the exam rules and regulations.
  • Take your student cardID (original South African ID document, driver's licence, passport or refugee status document) and exam timetable with you to the exam venue. You won't be allowed to enter the exam venue without these documents.
  • Give yourself sufficient time to get to the exam venue. And remember, you must be SEATED in the exam venue 15 minutes before the exam starts.
  • Make sure you have all the stationery you need (pens, pencils, etc).
  • Check that you receive the correct question paper. You will get zero if you answer the incorrect paper.
  • Read the whole paper before you start writing. Read the instructions carefully. Attempt all the questions where applicable and check your answers when you are done.
