Stay dehydrated

Contrary to the popular adage to stay hydrated, it is a season to drink just enough water. December being the coldest month of the year, it is wiser to reduce your water content so that you wont take frequent breaks from your study session.

Sleep right

Usually, 8 hours of sleep is advisable every day. But sleeping a full 8 hours might get you into a habit of not being able to cope up when you want to get some extra study time. So make your minimum sleep time 6-7 hours a day. If you need to stretch a little longer, its okay. You can return from exam and have a little sleep anyway to start afresh with your new session.

Use highlighters

Last minute preparation requires some quick studying skills. Mark all the important points with highlighters. Importantly, don't overdo the marking because that will not make any difference after all. You could even take a quick look at the book before entering the exam hall if you are habituated to this.

Pack Stationery

Take a look at your stationery items once and add on if you need anything. Do not keep refil in your pencil pouches as you might lose it in case the pouches are not allowed inside the exam hall. Keep ready your eraser, sharpner, pen, pencil, scale, geometry box, calculator, graph, logarithm books and any other desiderata.

Keep calm anyway because your best will be the outcome when you focus your energy on your strengths than weakness. All the best!
