I've come to learn that there are certain secrets to passing NUS exams. I have the right to say this because this is my freaking 5th year in school! I have learnt that there are a few must haves.. They aren't guarantees to pass exams, but they highly increase your chances of success.
Find out here!!!
1) COFFEE -- to help you keep those droopy eyelids open. Best if you down so much that your fingers start to jitter. Don't ever drink decaf - defeats the purpose.
2) Postits -- helps you take notes and remind you of small points you need to remember. Yu can try sneaking them into the exams hall but I wouldn't advice that. Not worth it.
3) Laptop -- you need to study from a laptop, so you can blog and bitch when ur bored. Yes laptops can be a distraction but all work and no play makes Jack a dull and freaking NERDY boy..
4) Scared shit look -- yes believe it or not, you need it. If you're not worrying about exams, you either are damn well prepared or you can't be bothered anymore. The former really just doesnt apply to the majority of us, so put on that SCARED SHIT LOOK and start mugging and burning the midnight oil while you can...
Incidentally I think the SCARED SHIT LOOK motivates you to study harder... makes u feed on adrenaline...
Oh well, but what do I know... *sigh*
