Staying Calm During Exams
Here are some tips to help you stay calm during exams.
1. Prepare for your exams well in advance. Try to keep up with your unit work on a day to-day basis. Avoid relying on last minute cramming in the days leading up to an exam.
2. Put the exam in perspective. It’s only an exam. The result is not a reflection of who you are as a person. If you invest too much of your self-worth in studying and exams it can create extra stress and anxiety.
3. Get a good night’s sleep beforehand. It’s important that you feel rested on the day of an exam. Even 4-5 hours may be enough. It’s hard to produce your best work in the exam if you’re feeling exhausted.
4. Eat sensibly before the exam. Some people overeat when they’re feeling anxious, while others stop eating at all. Eating a nutritious meal can help you feel physically comfortable and stay alert and focused for your exam.
5. Stop studying about an hour before the exam. It’s too late now to try and learn what you haven’t already covered. Use that last hour to try to relax and compose yourself before going into the exam. Try to visualise yourself calmly sitting in the exam, jotting down notes and answering questions.
6. Know the time and place of the exam. Allow yourself plenty of time to get there. You don’t need the extra stress of worrying if you’re going to be on time. Also, make sure you know what you need to bring and get it ready in advance.
7. Develop positive self-talk. Avoid thinking of yourself and exams in a negative way. Instead of thinking, “I know I’m going to fail” try and think “I’ll do my best”.
8. Don’t talk about the exam before the exam. Don’t talk about the exam with your classmates immediately before going into the exam if you know that it will just make you more anxious. 9. Read over the exam carefully and plan your approach. Taking a few minutes to work out how the marks are distributed for each question, how long to spend on each question, which question to start with etc., is usually time well spent.
. 10. Don’t hesitate to ask for clarification. Before you begin answering any questions make sure you fully understand the instructions. If you don’t understand, ask for clarification. Don’t let anxiety build up unnecessarily just because you’re not sure about what you’re expected to do. And don’t waste time doing more than the exam asks you to do.
11. Don’t get stuck. If your mind goes blank and you can’t think of anything to write, go on to another question or another part of the exam, or jot down anything that you can recall on your scratch paper to stimulate your memory and get your brain working.
12. Relax yourself during the exam. If you’re feeling anxious or are not thinking clearly, just stop, close your eyes, and take several slow, deep breaths. Concentrate only on your breathing for a minute or so and then return to the exam paper. Taking a minute to calm yourself and refocus is time well spent.
13. Pay attention only to the exam. Don’t waste time worrying, doubting yourself, wondering how other people are doing, telling yourself that you should have studied more. Don’t think about what you should have done, pay attention to what you can do now. Tell yourself, “Right now, I’m going to concentrate on the exam.” Sharn Joseph Gros Islet-library Shermaye George Celina K Edward Judith Justin

The Carnegie Free Library of St. Lucia (Castries, St. Lucia) By Ronald Raoul

The Carnegie Free Library of St. Lucia (Castries, St. Lucia)
Located in Castries, St. Lucia, the Carnegie Free Library of St. Lucia was one of six libraries in the Caribbean built with Carnegie funds. Plans for a library in St. Lucia were discussed in 1909. Seven years later, in May 1916, philanthropist and businessman Andrew Carnegie donated £2,500 (equivalent to $12,500 in U.S. currency at that time) for the library's construction. Land on which to build the library was purchased for £500 (at that time was about $2,500 in U.S. currency).

Construction of the library didn't begin until May 1923 . The delay was due to disagreement between town officials on the library's location and the library's design. The Carnegie Free Library of St. Lucia's construction was finished in June 1924. A grand opening ceremony for the library was held on December 1, 1924.

In 1948, a fire spread through Castries, and the library was one of several buildings in the town that were damaged. Approximately, 20,000 volumes in the library's collection were destroyed. Afterwards, the Carnegie Free Library of St. Lucia was rebuilt, and in 1958, its name was changed to the Central Library of St. Lucia.
