Exam Routine

If you haven't already, now is the time to start waking up and studying during exam time.  I know many  students like staying up late studying while sleeping during the day.  If that worked during bar prep, that is great.  However, now is the time to transition to waking up and studying during exam time.  Our bodies get into cycles, and you want to be mentally ready to take the exam by 8 or 9 in the morning.  You don’t want to still be tired.  Some students lose points on question 1 or 2 on the essays or the first 10 MBE questions because they are not awake.  Start studying by 8 or 9 to prevent this.  Get ready for the 2-3 day marathon.  The mental preparation can an extra 10 points.

I also recommend eating during the bar exam lunch hours next week.  You want to train yourself to make it through the testing session not needing food.  You don’t want your stomach to start grumbling with questions left.  This can make a huge difference.  Train yourself for every aspect of the exam.  Take breaks when the breaks would be on exam day.

All alumni taking the bar have the ability to pass.  The last few points will be the mental preparation for all the non-legal aspects of the exam.  Have a great last week of practice!
