    Perhaps you could start of by memorizing the experiments you do during tutorials. Its also always the best to start off by practicing alot on practice papers. Get past yr exam question and practise them again and again.

    Before entering the examination hall. Make sure u know all the steps to take by heart. Take also what u learn from theory to assist you to using the correct apparatus and sorts.

    Note: Exams are just there to gauge how much you have learn and not there to kill you. Remember, whatever ur lecturer says is very important. They know exactly what is required for you to score well, make sure you make good use of them.
