it depends on your subject, but since i don't know which unit or grade you're on, i can't help you with that. 1: think positively. You always seem to do better on a test if you do!! I don't know why. Also, try not to be stressed before coming into the test room, because if you are, you always seem to forget something or your mind eventually goes blank. 2. make summary notes. if you can make those, it means you understand it. 3. PRACTISE!!! If it's for math, there is never enough practising. Practicing is basically studying for math. Try starting off with the easier problems first, maybe five from each unit, then go on to the harder ones, then word problems. Make sure you do word problems. 4. Don't leave any question in your homework unanswered/unknown. It will just leave more questions for you on the exam and will make you not get full marks. hope i helped!
