JEE Time Education

D-day blues

Here’s how you can deal with doubts and dispel them.

On the eve on the exam, try and relax by reading newspapers and magazines. Go for a walk in the evening but avoid eating outside. Stay healthy as this also contributes towards your performance. It is natural if your brain is buzzing with several questions. Here are a few we anticipate.

The competition is stiff. Can I make it?

What you should be thinking at this time is how to give your best with the preparation you have done.

What if the paper is tough?

The important thing to focus on is how to maximise your performance. Irrespective of the nature of the paper, you must attempt all the questions you know.

If the pattern changes, what do I do?

Be prepared for some changes. Your strategy, however, should remain the same.

There are some topics I had not covered. Shall I do them now?

Just revise the formulae, scientific names, and so on, which you have learnt before.

Before the exam

    Don’t stay awake late

    Have a light dinner

    Reach the centre at least 45 minutes before the exam

    Have a light breakfast like sandwich, etc. Neither have an empty stomach nor a full stomach

Checklist

    Admit card, blue or black ballpoint pens, pencils, erasers, and so on.

    Wristwatch

    Do not carry any books to the exam.

    Do not discuss subject-related things with friends.

    Read the instructions mentioned in the question paper carefully.

    Be mentally ready for various uncertainties.

Keep your cool under all circumstances and do your best. And, most importantly, believe in yourself.
