Always remember “Your calm mind is the ultimate weapon against your challenges, so Relax”. Take the Mains Exam as a challenge and with calm mind devise an attempt strategy as to how are you going to attend and attempt the paper.

3. Take an 8 Hours Sleep

Now this one is the most important thing that you should do. 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. Take proper sleep and you yourself will see the benefits.

1. Scan through the complete section that comes first.

Let’s say it is the Reasoning & Computer Aptitudetry and comprehend the questions asked for atleast 2-3 minutes and then decide which questions that you want to attempt first. This would let you decide which questions you are comfortable attempting and thereby reducing the time that you take to solve each question. 

2. Read the questions with utmost sincerity 

Read the questions thoroughly and comprehend them properly before jumping on to solve them. Understand what is being asked in the question. Do no hastily skip the question just by looking at it.  It might  be possible that you might just be able to do it if you read it properly. So, before skipping, read it carefully because sometimes the questions that look difficult, are actually easy to solve. Also do not get stuck onto one question if you are unable to reach to a solution. You need to pick and choose the questions and attempt them accuracy. 

3. No Blind Guesswork

There is negative marking of one fourth in each of the questions. Keep this in mind especially in the General Awareness and English Language section. You must attempt questions in this section with pure dedication and almost 100% accuracy.
