Test day is the D-day that decides the next step in your educational journey. Performing your best in one single shot is demanded by these critical examinations. These thoughts, though right, many-a-times put a lot of stress and emotional burden on the candidates. This stress deteriorates performance and makes it tough to give one’s full potential in the examination. Also, various other things that are not central to the examination but necessary also need to be carried out before the examination as well e.g. Validating one’s identity at the examination center.
These are the points that must be looked up before going into examination:
1) Carry All Necessary Stuff:
Examinations are very crucial moments, and you must make sure that the last thing you run out of at the exam is the resources. Know well beforehand what things might be required at and during the examination and have them placed all in a location nearby so that it is easily accessible and you don’t forget to take any of them. You might be carrying a Hall Ticket and Identity card which are very necessary. Do you have two spare used pens just in case one of them goes out? If there is geometry involved carry the entire geometry set with compass, protractor, and pencils. If there is a written test included then take scales and other required stuff. Remember your roll number; it comes handy as you need to look it up and write it many numbers of times.
2) Time is Precious:
Various meta-procedures are carried out before and during the examination, and that consume much time. Reach the examination hall 30 minutes prior to the start of examination. 15 minutes of this time can be used to locate the room number and desk of the examination and be able to sit there 15 minutes before the start of the examination. It is an excellent thing to do since you get time to be comfortable with the environment and be at ease before the examination begins. You can also use this time to write your roll number, verify your identity to the invigilator and log-in into the system. This allows you to start right when the counter begins and can have the full time. Also, many times any distraction can come up which may waste a minute or two, don’t worry and give your full potential and that time can be covered up.
3) Prepare Well:
Well, this is the one thing that you must do because that’s the only thing that matters and is eventually reflected in your results. You might feel some pre-examination anxiety which is perfectly normal. But you have to realize the fact that you are well prepared and get over the feeling within 5 minutes. Remember confidence plays a key role in all the examinations. Practice makes a man perfect, so practice, practice and practice as much as you can, you are only going to benefit from it. Don’t try to learn a new concept the day before the examination. Only focus on revising the already known.
4) Stress Busters:
Try to get a full sleep on the night before the examination. Burning up midnight lamp the day before the D-day can have adverse effects. Toxins accumulate in some important parts of the brain which hinders logical thinking. It can prove catastrophic in examination scenarios. You should feel completely fresh and active. Don’t take heavy meals before examinations, you tend to feel sleepy or slowed down. Don’t starve either, try intakes that maximize the electrolytes in the body without using the much digestive system. Try to stay calm as best as you can and you shall perform to the best of your abilities.
5) Be Comfortable:
It is one of the prime factors that come readily and does much of the performance boosting. The truth is you may not know the answer to every question in the examination, but you can find one. In order to do that, you must be comfortable with everything around you and your subject as well. If you have practiced well enough and you are comfortable in your surroundings at that moment, you could use your experience and wits to find a way out of nowhere. So if you are truly comfortable it will not matter how much you know beforehand, you will always excel.
