Consume a Nutritious Diet

Candidates are often so engrossed in their preparation and studies that they completely ignore their diet. Food is the fuel that keeps us going and it is of utmost importance to fuel up before the exam. Make sure that you are taking a nutritious diet as that will not only have a positive impact on your physical health but will also be a great morale booster.

Do Not Start with New Topics or New Books

In the last few days, you must not start studying from a new book or get into a new topic. This will not only confuse you but will also hit your confidence. Make sure you keep some time for leisure activities and do not spend all the time solely on studies. It will help keep your spirits up and help your mind relax.

Keep a Calm Head and Stay Confident

Anxiety and nervousness are common in the last days of any exam preparation. However, panicking has only proven to make a bad situation worse. Keeping a steady head is as essential as any other point in this list. It is important to keep your confidence up and be prepared for success.
