    Avoid Taking Breaks during the Exam

    The candidates must ensure that they do not take breaks in between the exam for drinking water or for other activities. There is no provision that the candidates are entitled for the extra time if they take break. The time lapsed during the break is the time lapsed for the exam actually. The candidates may solve one or two questions during the break. Every minute is precious during the exam, so the candidates should not waste even a single minute.

    Don’t Forget to Carry the Necessary Items

    This is the last but not the least important thing to keep in mind. After downloading the Admit Card, the candidates should read all the instructions given in their Admit Card. The list of documents that are to be taken for the exam is given in the Admit Card and also there is the list of the documents that are prohibited during the exam.

    The candidates should not forget to take their Admit Card in the exam hall. The candidates should reach the exam centre before time because entry in the exam hall is granted only if the candidates reach the exam centre on or before the time. The candidates need to produce original and a copy of the photo identity (bearing exactly the same name as it appears on the call letter) such as PAN Card / Passport / Driving License / Voters Card / Bank Pass Book with Photograph / Photo embossed Credit Card / Aadhaar Card for verification.

    If the candidates follow these smart tips during their exam then they can avoid not only the possible hurry during the exam but also they can perform better during the exam. This will surely give them the desired success.
