During the exam itself pace yourself and if you find yourself rushing through the questions, purposefully slow down to avoid skim-reading and missing an important element of the question. Now and then, check in with your posture and how your body is feeling. Deep breathing can be used while revising, when entering the exam room and even during an exam.
