1. Know The Layout

Make sure that you’re aware of the layout of the exam. This will help you feel more comfortable on the day and help you to achieve better results.

If you’re unaware of the layout of the exam, then you need to find out. Most teachers create their own Christmas exams, so you can simply ask them if they haven’t told you yet.

2. Know What’s Coming Up

A mistake that many students make when preparing for Christmas exams, or any exam for that matter, is studying things that won’t come up on the day.

With Christmas exams, your teachers will generally only examine you on content that you have covered in class. If you’re not sure, or simply can’t remember exactly what you’ve covered, ask your teacher and they’ll be happy to help you out.

3. Practise, Practise, Practise

Testing yourself is the most important method in your study tool kit. It’s absolutely essential if you’re looking to do well in your exams.

You can implement this method into your study by using exam papers, flashcards, or our Pre-Exam Checklists, included in our comprehensive notes, the perfect tool to help you prepare for your November exams.


4. Focus On The Bigger Picture

Finally, we’d like to let you in on a little secret. The Christmas exams are not the be all and end all. They are only in place so you can get used to an exam environment, and see what you know and what you still need to revise.

It’s more important to focus on the bigger picture-where you are in terms of preparing for the Junior Cycle exams.
