I only see 8am exams and no afternoons available for my specific dates. For those who did the exam at 8am how was it ? I’m not really a morning person but the pros are not having time to stress about it and just doing it right away.

Wake up early - its just one day - i do better on morning tests because I'm not stressing until 12 pm.

I’m also a morning person and took every exam as early as possible. The worst score I had was my latest exam because I spent the entire morning stressing. If you can wake up, try to go through the motions of a normal morning and get to the rest center fresh it will serve you way better. Then after each test take the best sleep of your life.

Only ever did 8am exams but I am a morning person. Just rip the bandaid off since you probably aren’t learning anything new whether you take it at 8am vs 2pm.

I am not a morning person, but I’ve done my exams at 8 and 7am so far. Rip the bandaid off. Worked so far for me!

I’ve only ever done morning tests. I’m personally a morning person so I prefer it, but I also like just getting it over with. I feel like the morning test is nice because you’re not sitting around stressing over the upcoming test, it’s not like you can cram enough before the 12pm to make a difference so might as well get it done

I personally prefer the afternoon. My test center usually calls me as soon as my seat opens up, so I can come in early and get started right away. I hate waiting to get signed in and seated. It stresses me out. I also don't have much of an appetite in the morning and i get butterflies because I'm so nervous. I can have a slow morning.

I did all morning exams. I'd be a nervous wreck having to wait until noon to test anyway. I usually wake up at 5:30 anyways so morning is perfect for me.

I did one exam at 8am and I’m not a morning person. It wasn’t too bad if you prepare your clothes, snacks, etc the night before. I kinda liked getting it out of the way early vs taking it later in the afternoon where the exam is looming over you all day.

Okay. My first exam for AUD was over a year ago and I got a 59. Now the books have all changed and I can’t take notes as well since a lot of the formatting of the exam is different. Should I push the exam back more (I test next Saturday) to order a new book or jus to focus on MCQs? If just go for MCQs then should I focus on any sections in particular? I’m using Becker atm.
