We all know that taking college entrance exams can be quite stressful.
For seniors here at FEU Tech, you might still remember everything that happened when you were taking the FEU Tech On-Campus College Admission Test (O-CAT). From the sweaty face and hands from anxiety, to the sheer cold temperature of the exam room that rivals your fridge, taking your dream college's entrance is a core memory.
For incoming freshmen, you might be feeling those same things too, except that you haven't actually taken the exam yet.
But don't you worry, my friend. I got you covered!
Want to get into the School of Innovation? Here are five tips that will help you conquer your nerves and ace the FEU O-CAT!
Make an optimal study schedule for the O-CAT
Before you start reviewing, make sure to organize all the subjects and topics that you need to review and plan an optimal study schedule so you don't get overloaded with information!
Take rests in-between study sessions
Make sure to take a breather every once in a while while studying. One good way to do this is through the Pomodoro Technique!
Get ample sleep every day, ESPECIALLY before your exam day
Sleep is essential to get our brain working properly. Don't push yourself too much and make sure to get 7 to 8 hours of sleep per day to keep your studying optimal.
Eat and hydrate before the exam. Bring a jacket!
Another important thing is taking light snacks and drinks to fuel our mind and body. Make sure to always have a water tumbler by your side and hydrate during the exam. Oh, and friendly tip, you'll need a jacket too. Trust me.
Breathe. Believe in yourself.
Finally, when you're about to make one of the biggest step in your life, don't forget to take everything in and breathe. Remember that everything will fall into place soon, you got this!
