5. Revise key Concepts before Examination:

It is a must do activity before exam. If the topics that you read a month or two month before exam are not revised then they are useless. While going through topics always make notes and write down important formulae. It is advised not to read new topics a day before your examination. Give your complete time on revision.

Staying motivated is a difficult task. Many a times it occur that while solving sample papers you are not able to solve a particular problem even after spending more than the required time on that question or you could not attempt sufficient question in the paper. In such situations you feel tensed and depressed.

Whenever you feel that you are trapped in a question, leave that and attempt it again after some time. In last if you could not solve see the solution and check where did you make mistake.
