The moment you enter the examination room and pick up your paper to read the questions . . . you will become completely calm and relaxed . . . and all your nervousness and apprehension will disappear completely.
No matter how difficult the questions may seem at first sight ... or how little you seem to know . . . you will not panic . . . because you will find that things are not as bad as they seem.
You will read all the questions carefully and deliberately . . . you will decide upon the one that you can tackle best . . . and answer that one as fully as you can . . . without worrying about the others until you have completed it.
As you do this . . . you will find that you will actually remember far more than you originally thought you would.
When you have put down all you know about this first question . . . choose the next easiest to answer . . . and tackle that in exactly the same way.
Continue in this way with the rest of the questions until you have written all that you can remember ... or until the time is up.
When you have finished . . . you will find that you have remembered far more that you thought possible when you first read the questions.
