- Encourage your child to stay relaxed when taking a test.

- Make sure that your child gets enough sleep, especially the night before the test.

- Ensure that your child eats a healthy breakfast and avoids heavy foods that may make him/her groggy and avoid high sugar foods.

- On the day of the test, make sure that your child gets up early enough so that he/she will be on time to school.

- Praise/reward your child for their hard work in preparing for these tests.

For information on these testing dates, contact your child’s campus administration.
