(a) How long is your exam? (2 hours? 3 hours?)
(b) How many questions will you need to answer?
- all of them?
- do you have a choice of questions?
- are some mandatory, some elective?
- are all questions worth the same number of marks?
(c) How much time do you want to allow to read the paper? (10 minutes?)
(d) How much time do you want to spend checking it at the end? (15 minutes?)
Then do the sums
(a – c – d)/b = time for each question (assuming each question is worth an equal number of marks)
Write down the start time of your exam and your start time for each question, and follow this schedule in your exam.
During your final revision, aim to answer each question in the time allowed.
