    Practice Mock Tests

    Try to solve at least 5 question papers as it will help you find any difficult areas in the test papers that you have covered and need revision. This will help you to increase speed in solving the paper, along with smooth and easy movement across sections (in case you don’t know a particular answer).

Never ignore the breakfast as it is an important meal that helps you keep running throughout the day even if you miss the lunch. Eat fruits as they are healthy and a good source of nutrition. Avoid oily food as it will make you feel sleepy throughout the day. Do not take any food or liquids which contain caffeine or chocolate three hours before sleeping.
