It is useful to think of an exam as a performance. It is all about the preparation before-hand that will determine how well you do on the day. One way to develop a performance mindset that leads to exam excellence is to use an upcoming exam as an opportunity to do better than you have ever done before - to help extend the ideas you hold of how good you are. Then as you see yourself becoming better, your self-belief improves and you start raising your aspirations. Before you know it, you are breaking through to exam excellence!
