IBPS RRB PO Last Minute Tips

1. Calm Yourself Down – Now it is high time that you let go off your anxiety and stress that must have been surrounding you all this while. Let it go and calm yourself. Calmness is crucial for your concentration and memory power and these in turn will stimulate your minds and you would be able to attempt the paper in a better manner. 

2. Trust Yourself – You must have read or heard the quote “Trust yourself, you know more than you think you do”. Now this doesn’t mean that you become overconfident about your abilities. This would simply mean that you need to inculcate a sense of belief in yourself. This would calm you as well as increase your self confidence which is again of utmost importance when you go to attempt any of the Exams. Believe that you had put in enough effort in your preparations and now it is time to perform and more importantly perform good. 

3. Take Sufficient Amount of sleep – Take atleast an 8 to 9 Hour sleep a night before the Exam. A sound sleep reduces stress, improves your memory, lowers your blood pressure, sets you in better mood. Needless to say these are things that you will need on the Exam day.

4. Do not take up a new topic now – Do not stress yourself and try to master a new topic from the syllabus now. This would really be a bad idea. The better option would be to revise the the Concepts & Short tricks for Quantitative Aptitude & Reasoning Ability now.

5. Gather all Essential Documents – Get a copy or two of your Prelims Admit Card and also get your passport size photographs ready. Take the necessary stationery items like pen, pencil, rubber etc with you. Reach your Exam Center atleast an hour before the Reporting time mentioned in the Call Letter. Running last minute to reach the Exam destination can be disadvantageous.
