Don’t start a new topic
Starting a new topic a day before the exam can prove to be suicidal. Rather, you should revise basic concepts thoroughly to strengthen your knowledge.
Use handmade notes for revision
We all know it is impossible to go through a complete book just in a day. You must have made notes while preparing for JEE Advanced 2017, so this is the time to utilize those notes and revise all the important points. These give you a quick sneak peak of important topics.
Stay away from solving mathematical problems
As the stress level is already at its peak a day before the exam, solving Mathematical problems will just add fuel to the fire. Errors made during problem-solving will affect your confidence level while making you more nervous. It is better to stick with easy things or just focus on other things than revision.
Keep all the documents ready
Prepare a folder of all the documents required in the examination hall and keep it safe. A photocopy of the JEE Advanced Admit Card and a verified ID proof(Aadhaar Card, PAN Card, Driving License, Passport, Voter ID etc.) are the major documents you need to carry to get entry into the examination hall. Keep multiple copies of the Admit Card for emergency situations.
Visit the examination center to reach on time next day
It’s always a great idea to visit the examination venue a day before the exam. It helps you reach the examination hall on time and you don’t face problems in finding the address on the exam day.
Do meditation and Yoga
Meditation and Yoga are the best techniques to handle exam stress and make your mind feel relaxed and peaceful. By practicing meditation for some time, you can easily get rid of unwanted stress. You can also try this on the day of JEE Advanced 2017 exam to help your brain perform better.
Sleep tight without any stress
Make sure you sleep for at least 6-8 hours to feel fresh the next morning. If you don’t sleep well, you might feel exhausted in the examination hall, which you would never want. Take healthy and light food before going to bed to enjoy a sound sleep. Also, avoid studying late hours and try to go to bed by 10.00 PM.
Spend time with family or friends
Generally, students preparing for JEE advanced exam don’t get time for family and friends due to the vast syllabus. A day before the exam is a good time to spend some time with them and forget about the examination phobia. It is better to spend the evening with a friend or family member who can make you forget exam related worries with his/her entertaining nature.
Ignore unwanted advice
A day before the exam, everyone around you wants to give you some advice. From friends to relatives and neighbors, all start giving advice on how to write the exam. Stay away from these thoughts and try to ignore the advice given by them. Just focus on the tips and tricks practiced by you to write the exam.
Relax and have confidence
If you have already covered complete syllabus and have prepared well for the exam, you need not worry about the final day. Just have confidence in yourself and relax to save energy for the D-day. Having self-belief can and would take you a long way forward.
The idea behind all these tips is to boost your confidence level for JEE Advanced exam. So follow these points and get ready to score high in the exam to get admission into your dream college.
All the best for the exam!
