It is advised to reach your centre one hour before the commencement of the exam.
Do what is right for you!
Every individual has a strategy when it comes to exam preparation. Some people prefer listening to music right before the exam, while some prefer last-minute revisions, few candidates wish to be alone to soothe their mind and recollect necessary points.
Review the important points
Rather than going through all the syllabus day before, it is good to make flashcards of important topics. This will not only help you retain better but will also you to perform better on your MAT examination.
It is always good to take some time off a day before the exam to overcome the text anxiety which most of the candidates go through. Getting anxious right before the exam will affect your scores as the brain will be working hard to calm your nerves down rather than focusing on what you have learned. So it is good to relax a little.
The best way to score well in the MAT exam is to worry less. Hence, it is better to not stress and wait for the cut-offs patiently. The MAT 2021 Cut Off varies every year depending on several factors.
