As the exam is coming close, the first thing you do is not to burden your brain thinking so much about the exam rather keep confidence in yourself. The following things you can give stress on:

  • You have to build an exam temperament within yourself. That means you must be prepared yourself for the test at any point of time.
  • Be clear about the exam pattern. Because, once you get sure of what to expect on the exam day, it becomes easier for you to score high.
  • Accuracy is most needed. Never get trapped by the negative marking. Don’t do too much guess work or take unnecessary risks while attempting questions.
  • Try to avoid learning new topics. Because it might increase your stress level or would result in confusion. It’s better for you to revise what you have learnt so far.
  • Don’t get distracted by too many mock tests, question banks or practice books from different authors. Create a realistic study plan and stick to the schedule that you can handle.
  • Don’t get overconfident about your preparation; rather concentrate on the techniques that will help you in cracking the questions.
  • As the time coming close, concentrate on the scoring potential that is possible only through concentrating on the areas where you’re strong and create a strategic plan for weak areas to get over the difficulties.
  • Time is just 3 hours. So, your aim should be of managing all the sections within that time period. Mock tests can help you a lot in forging that strategy.  That’s the key strategy on the exam day.
  • Speed and accuracy are the two most important factors in any competitive exam. Those two factors are largely dependent on revision and practice. Attempt mock test papers by keeping a stopwatch with you.
  • There are 180 objective type questions covering over three sections. If you find one or two tough or confusing, don’t get stuck with them. Move ahead for easier ones and you may attempt them later on if time allows.
  •  As you have practised too many mock test papers and question banks, you’re more or less confident of instructions given in the question paper. Still, you read them while you sit in the exam to get sure of what to do.
  •  When you sit in the exam, try to be relaxed and calm. Be slow and easy-going while solving. Never be hurry while attempting.

Physics:

  • Keep a tab on formulas. Tray to remember them.
  • Topics like Heat, Optics and Modern Physics carry more weight. Give stress on those things.
  • Stay away from over-indulgence with tough questions

Chemistry:  

  • Always go for questions which need less calculation. Example: Organic and Inorganic Chemistry
  • Keep track of conceptual questions also along with factual questions.
  • First attempt relatively easy questions

Biology:

  • Diagrams are very important. Try to learn them systematically.
  • Topics like morphology and anatomy are score-friendly.
