Don’t study anything new

During the last week before the exam, you should focus only on revision. It’s not the time to start or study new topics. So, avoid starting new topics. By now, you must be aware of your strong and weak areas or topics in particular subjects. Candidates are advised to revise their weak areas again and again.

Keep revising General Awareness

Revise general awareness through your notes. General Awareness can play a vital role in increasing  your score in the exam as you can solve maximum number of questions in less time. Candidates can divide their general awareness section into three parts i.e. Current Affairs, Static GK and Banking and Economy. Collect your entire notes and draw a plan for quick revision.

Beware of negative marking

Candidates should avoid negative marking as it can decrease your score. Read and understand questions carefully before marking the answer.  Do not ever think of attempting more questions in case you are not sure about them.
