Five Things to avoid doing before 30 minutes on Exam day
Last Minute Revision
You might be thinking that last minute revision is helpful but that is not true. Last minute revision is not always helpful. Whenever you revise in your last 30 minutes your mind gets involved in that particular answer and tries to remember the same answer above everything. So, it is always suggested to keep all your books aside before 30 minutes from the exam. Do not over think and study any answer at the last minute. Try to wind up everything before 30 minutes without leaving any question to study.
Whenever you stress yourself before an exam you are likely to jumble up everything. Exam Anxiety is the biggest enemy of success because it stresses your mind which results in restlessness. It will enable you to recall your studied answers and make things worse during exams. Few students even start sweating. The level of competency of exams such as UPSC, PCS, JEE, CISF Constable exam needs relaxed mind before attempting the paper. So, take a deep breath and have some water before the exam to stay calm.
Cluttering of your Desk
Before starting with your exam, make sure that your desk is not cluttered with lots of stationeries. A cluttered desk may irritate you as things won’t be in order. There are people who love cluttered desks but we suggest you avoid this habit during exams because organized things save time and unorganized stationeries will waste your time. So, make sure that you are good to go ahead with your exams with an organized desk.
Surrounding yourself with Chaos
Avoid surrounding yourself with chatterboxes. Many students have a habit of discussing and sharing their worries about exams but it is your duty to take care of yourself and avoid any kind of nuisance around you. Keep yourself calm and relax so that you will be able to keep things in order and write efficiently in exams within the stipulated time period and if you are appearing for any examination such as UP Police SI that needs organizing and time management skills then you must take care of these things.
Appearing exam on Empty Stomach
