Well definitely NOT cram the night before, that really doesn't work, it should really be a time of relaxing, and letting the subject settle in your head , you can perhaps briefly looking over your notes, for example yesterday i was watching home alone 2 :p though i had an exam the next day but theres not really much you can the night before.For the morning before the exam going over things with your friends and/or teacher is also really helpful to just recap the ideas in your head, hope this helps ;)

remain calm, go through the main points of each topic of your revision, don't revise too much because you may find something you're unsure about or don't know in which case you'll panic, eat breakfast, keep hydrated, night before- do an exam paper to get you into the feeling of the exam :) x

Definitely don't cram because it pushes everything out of your head, but also don't do nothing. You need to get the balance right. Browsing over the revision you have already done, possibly making a couple of mind maps or key cards to read in the morning whilst eating breakfast etc. Just little things and words that can jog your memory before you go into your exam. Little poems or songs, easy ways to remember things. I personally find getting up earlier and reading my key cards whilst eating breakfast and on the way to school works best for me. Also talking and discussing things with people before your exam or even teaching other people things work well. Don't panic, normally things flood back to you. Make sure you take water into your exam too, hydration is key! Good luck!!

Do not worry i can help you

the night before go through your notes just skim, have conversation about a topic in your exam with friends or family eg A essay 

Do You Believe In God?

girlfriend: I do because.....

you: I agree but......

Have a early night in bed, relax, read, do not feel pressured

Have a good breakfast protein, carbs 

Take deep breaths in the exam room if you feel panicked

Simply go through the past revision that you've done.

Highlight some things you think that are important. Try out a past paper.

Also, try remembering things in your sleep. Imagine doing the test, imagine difficult questions and some easy ones.

Wake up an hour earlier, just read some things VERY quickly in context.

Wish yourself good luck!

a friend of mine was so worried about the morning exam she did not have a any breakfast or liquid and she fainted as we got into the exam room and now she has 8 GCSE 2 HALF GCSE'S because of panicking, just think if you goo over everything at least once there is nothing in the exam that you will not have gone over

good luck

Relax is the main thing, don't try and learn anything new just look through the notes you've got but don't cram your brain with any new facts.

I dont knw about u guys but one thing I find really helpful doing the night before or like an hour before my exams is a good shower.. it just releases the stress and refreshens your mind :)

Whatever, you do just pleae do not cram anything the day before, the best things to do the night before, is just go through your notes briefly and maybe do one exam practise
