On August 6-8, high school students will take national “Diplomas” exams. Here are a few tips for success from Sous Sinan, a physics teacher at Preas Monivong high school in Battambang province:

Do practice exercises every day in the days leading up to the exams. Learn from teachers, with other students, and on your own. Self study is the key to success. The more you practice the more you will understand and remember! Also take care of your health, or you will fall behind.

On the day of the exam, come with your student card and know your room and table numbers. Arrive early so you are fully prepared. Don’t stress. Be confident!

First, fill in your name, table number, and exam centre, and read the instructions multiple times to avoid misunderstandings before you begin. Most importantly, answer the questions you know first.

Otherwise, you’ll get stuck on the difficult questions and won’t do as well as you could.
