  • Create a study schedule: Design a study plan that includes all the subjects you need to cover, and allocate sufficient time for each subject based on your strengths and weaknesses.
  • Use past questions: Practice with past examination questions to familiarize yourself with the exam format, question types, and marking scheme.
  • Join a study group: Collaborate with classmates or friends who are also preparing for the exams. A study group can help you stay motivated and offer different perspectives on challenging topics.
