Here are some last moment tips and preparations strategies to follow before you start for the exam:

Preparation Strategies:

Selective Revision

It is not the time to revise everything on the last moment. It is advisable to focus on the main important topics from every chapter. Once you are done, make some bullet pointers which will help you remember the complete topic easily.

Eat healthy food

In the final hours of revision time, eat as much healthy food as you can. Avoid the junk food and focus on your health. Pick out some separate, free time and just focus on the food that you eat. Try to follow a healthy diet in the last crucial hours which will help your mind get fit and healthy.

No study-time

Now, in the crucial moments, it is not the time to study things. It is the time to revise whatever you have studied in the past one year. Spare at least 2-3 hours in the day to listen to some soulful music or go out and play a sport. This will refresh your mind, as well as keep you fit. Do not sit for late night studies. Sleep is very important in these hours.

Stay positive

Positivity refers to the practice of being optimistic in attitude. Keep a positive environment around yourself. The best way to leave a spark is by being positive. Hard work never fails to take you towards success.

Important checklist:

Admit Card/Hall Ticket

Candidates make sure that you carry the admit card/hall ticket. Without it, you would not be allowed it the examination. Keep your admit card a night before the examination in your bag.


Like the admit cards, keep your stationery with you always. Keep a separate stationery box with pens, pencils, a scale, an eraser, a sharpener, and other essential stationery in the box. It is always to have your own stationery than share in the exam hall.

Writing Pad

A writing pad will always be helpful in the exam. It keeps your answer sheets at one place and makes it easy to organise.


Always keep your water bottle by your side in the examination hall. Water helps you rejuvenate and get refresh. Drink as much water as you can. This also reduces the chances of you falling sick or getting thirsty and asking for water.

Reach the exam centre before time

Make sure you reach your exam centre at least half an hour or 45 minutes before the commencement of the examination. Visit the centre a day before your exam starts so that you have an idea of traffic. Parents or guardians, please take care of the transportation and make sure your kid reaches the centre before time.

All the best to all the students appearing for the examinations. Remember, you are the best, and no one can stop you!
