A little preparation before the exam can make all the difference. Here are some tips on what to do one hour before an exam: Get a good night’s sleep. Eat a healthy breakfast. Take a shower and get dressed, so you feel confident and ready to take on the day. Review your notes and highlight important facts or vocabulary words that you may need to remember during the test. Review your study plan for any last minute changes that you need to make, or things you want to add in before your test date. Practice answering questions in your head, out loud, or with someone else so it feels more natural when it comes time for the actual test.
