A good but weird tip for everyone. When you get into an exam, imagine that you are in your own bubble. The bubble makes sounds muffled and is transluscent so people around you are blurred. Just block out any sound and then take deep breaths. Just think that no one can get in your bubble. Although this all sounds a bit like something you would do after taking cocaine, it helps get you relaxed.

Honestly, as long as you know most of the information, you should have no need to be nervous.

If you still are....Then try to revise more, it makes you feel a  LOT better...

If not, then try having a small drink of something soothing (like milk?) before you go in, or whatever helps to settle your stomach It is also good to **** a sweet....It takes your mind of sickness and nerves.

Go in feeling positive, you do know it all if you have revised, don't revise just before you go into the exam, you want to concentrate on calming yourself down and assuring yourself, maybe get people to test you the night or two before, you will become more confident with answering questions and then you can apply this to your exam *** hope that helped
