Review

We hope that you now feel more prepared to tackle exam essays. At the bottom of this section, you can find links to more printable exam-related activities.

But before we finish, let's take another look at what we've learned about written exam technique so far.

  • Prepare well to give yourself the best chance of success – get organised, revise essay language, practise doing timed tasks and make a study plan!
  • Planning is also important in the exam itself – having a clear plan for your exam essay will help you write a clear and coherent answer.
  • Don't just sit back when you've finished writing – make sure you proofread what you've written to check for any mistakes!
  • Always check your work for spelling, punctuation,and accuracy – if you've made a mistake, just put a single line through it!
