I'm taking my half-hour break (just finished going through Mathematics revision) before continuing on to Business and Management revision and I've decided to write a post on the exams. My friend today suggested I posted one on what to wear when taking one.
I figured this would be an interesting post as people would usually dress up more for comfortable than for functionality. So here are some tips:
1. Be comfortable, but get out of your pyjamas.

So dress comfortably but get out of your comfort clothes! It will only make you feel too relaxed and like you just got out of bed. Trust me you don't want to feel like this. An alternative could be a pair of comfy jeans and a top (whether it be a shirt or a tank). Pair an outerwear with this outfit so you can easily get warmer or cooler whenever you feel.

2. Get those hair out of your face. Nicely.
Stress + bad weather + hand on forehead constantly + TAKING YOUR EXAMS = hair in your face/sticking on your forehead/oily/sweaty/you get the point. Don't just stick on a headband and go (well I guess you could, but what's the harm in looking nice?). Also headbands give you headaches, and aches behind your ears due to the pressure on them. It's uncomfortable.
I think it's always a good idea to get your hair out of the way completely by having it in a:
|My favorite. When done neatly, there will be nothing sticking out of your head, everything will be held in place.|
|I like to do mine a bit higher because when my hair constantly brush against my neck and shoulder it gets really uncomfortable, but it gets the job done.|
|Pretty! And voila, no hair on thy face.|
|You'd probably die if I gave you a punch. Feel the wrath of my arm-things.|
Okay, I have to go now and revise for my other exams. Wish me luck!
