Last Moment Merit Tips:

a) Stay calm: When you know you have been preparing for weeks for this exam, so you should not be so tensed about it. Try to be confident and calm.
b) Do not skip your morning meal: Do take your first meal in the morning before the exam. It kick-starts your brain and makes it exam-ready. Try avoiding caffeine as it tends to make your thinking less clear.
c) Do not withdraw socially: Sharing your feelings with your friends and family is the most relaxing thing for your ‘tensed-up’ brain.
d) No last-minute cramming: We understand that you often lose your calmness before the exam and land up cramming up those topics that are not even relevant. This makes it difficult for the brain to recollect what it absorbed a day before.
e) Avoid discussing the question paper after the exam: This is what we all do every time when we walk out of an exam – asking our friends what did they put as answers for certain questions. There is no point worrying about what’s done and dusted, when you have the next exam to prepare for.
