Stay away from social media: Take 6 hours of sleep a day, try to eat healthy and when you decide to take a break, go for a walk instead of going on social media.

Doing just this will help you focus better and reduce stress.


Concentrate on your notes: Do not study from any online medium or any reference book at this time. Concentrate on your notes and trust them blindly.


Don’t take anymore mock tests: Mock exams are supposed to give you an idea about your weak topics, however this is not the time to study any new topic. Moreover, poor performance in a mock exam can stress you out.


Do not let depression get to you: Most students at this time feel that they’ve forgotten everything, this thought doesn’t let them sleep and reduce their overall output.

We want to tell you that you’re not alone, it happens with most of students at this stage.

Stay confident, you have not forgotten anything, it’s just in your subconscious memory. You will instinctively know the answer in the exam.


Keep volatile topics for last day: Just go through the Numerical based values, Formulas and IPC codes, Tables of Harrison etc. on the final day (maybe till the time you enter the exam hall).
