If you don’t understand something, repeat it

Start solving again if you finish the entire curriculum before the 4-5 months of exams.

This will boost your confidence in addressing challenges more effectively and quickly.


Make time for sleep and power naps. There have been numerous reports of students falling asleep during exams, so don’t push yourself; your body, at the very least, requires rest.


Most people will disapprove, but you do need to chill and relax after a long day of cramming and studying. You need a break, so set aside a couple of hours to do something you enjoy, such as watching TV, chatting with friends, playing a game, going to the gym, doing yoga, or whatever helps you relax.

Avoid last-minute studying

Don’t stress and start cramming as the exam approaches, especially on the eve before the exam. All you’ll end up doing is stressing yourself out and forgetting what little you already know.

Concentrate on what you do remember instead of what you don’t

Maintain your confidence in your preparation; we all have weak points; accept yours and don’t worry about things you don’t comprehend; instead, focus on what you do know and do it better.

Eat healthily

Yes, you read that correctly. Eat well and forget about the diet before examinations! Don’t go in to write a paper if you’re hungry. Keep a comfort item available, such as a bar of chocolate, a banana, or a muesli bar, to assist you to get through the 3-hour paper. Water bottles are often permitted in the exam hall; make sure you have one with you. Let’s hope your mouth doesn’t dry up totally when you get the question paper!

It doesn’t matter how much you’ve studied as long as you have the appropriate mentality.

Maintain an optimistic attitude

Tell yourself that nothing bad can happen. You are your biggest motivator, therefore reinforce good thoughts and tell yourself that you have done your best. Above all, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. So, go ahead and treat the board exam like any other ordinary school exam, and you’ll be astonished at how well you do!

Before submitting your answer sheet, revise it

Because the paper is 3 hours long, give 2 hours and 45 minutes for writing and the remaining 15 minutes for revising.


Please pay extra attention to your English exam preparation. Follow the given tips carefully, and try to remain cool while composing your responses.

Maintaining your calm will help you attain clarity in your mental process and deliver outstanding results.
