Revise important topics and concepts
Ensure that you devote ample time in revising important topics and concepts. Write them in a separate sheet and keep reading them whenever you get time. This will help you retain information better and boost your confidence.
Do not attempt questions you aren’t sure about. This will waste your crucial time. Be smart, leave it and move on to the next. The target of a candidate is to score more, providing answers in a sensible and logical manner.
Things to keep in mind
Start answering the questions from your strong area. Read the paper carefully and attempt it keeping your weak and strong areas in mind and tackle all sections accordingly.
Tips and tricks before appearing for the exam
Hall ticket: The candidates should not forget to take hall tickets inside the examination centre. Candidates should keep in mind that if they fail to carry the same, they will not be allowed to enter the examination hall in any case.
Items banned: Do not carry electronic gadgets inside the exam hall such as mobile phones or any other communication devices.
Avoid late night studies: Try to get 6-7 hours of sleep a day before the exam. There’s no point starting a new topic at this point of time and the only thing your mind requires is peace and relaxation to perform well the next day.
Organise your bag: Students need to pack their bags a day in advance. Ensure you have kept your stationery, ID card and other essentials.
Be positive: Maintaining your calm and a positive frame of mind is the key to perform well in any exam. Do not ponder about the leftover topics or how difficult or easy the paper would be. Just take a deep breath and have faith in your preparations.
