    • The night before the exam

The night before the exam, do a quick revision and do not study anything new. Get to bed early, as your body needs sufficient rest for D-day.

    • The morning of the test

Do not skip breakfast on the day of your exam. Go to your school early and do a power revision. Avoid talking to your friends or classmates, as it creates confusion while discussing.

    • Test time

Before the test begins, make sure you have everything that is needed for the test, such as pens, pencils, an eraser, a ruler and a sharpener. Keep everything handy and listen to the instructions given by the invigilator.

    • Time management

As soon as you get the question paper, do not right away start writing. Glance through the entire question paper and read all the questions. Start attempting the questions which you are sure of, doing so will help you to build confidence, and you become less anxious.

    • When stuck

While answering, there are chances that you will get stuck in the middle. Do not panic or get frustrated. Read the question again and try to answer it. If you are still stuck, do not waste time on that particular question and move on to the next. You can attempt it once you complete the entire paper.

    • Yay! I finished the paper

When you finish writing the last answer, do not be in a hurry to get out of the exam hall. Revise all the answers to check whether you have made any careless mistakes or skipped any questions.

Follow these preparation tips to score well in your CBSE final exams. All the best!
