Anyone got any rituals/methods they use to stay calm or focus?

Practice until you can do whatever the subject requires in your sleep. Honestly, the feeling of having a handle on your classes gives you a lot of confidence when taking any test. This goes for regular tests, Sats and aps.

I make sure that I'm hydrated, but have gone to the bathroom right before. I have also found that doing a short (5 min.) meditation beforehand significantly calms me down.

I make sure I have water to drink. Just be sure to not spill any on the test itself...
