    7. There's power in constructing odd strings of letters.


    8. Don't get cocky either.


    9. Even if you can't guarantee what will come up in the exam, focus on what you can control…


    10. …like precious, precious sleep.


    11. But be open to flexibility.


    12. In fact, the above will help if your study space is always changing.

    13. You're not alone either!


    14. However, keep focused on numero uno…


    15. …and recognise which pals are positive influences.


    16. You are what you eat.


    17. Stock up on healthy snacks to stay focused.


    18. Treat yourself.


    19. In fact, use them to keep you going.
