First, consider which is the best course and exam for you. Then, when you enrol on your course, find out how long you've got to study and what will be tested in the exam. Make sure you practise the right kinds of exercises. And remember, there's nothing last minute about doing an exam - so start planning your revision right from the start!

  • Seek advice on the right exam for you.
  • Find out exactly what will be tested in the exam.
  • Think ahead. Plan your time.
  • Stay focussed on studying for the exam. Don't be distracted.
