Last minute tips before the exam:
Stay healthy.. A healthy body is as important as a strong mind. Make sure you eat well and sleep on time. Any imbalance in diet and sleep can effect your memory and performance during the examination.
Mock tests.. With only three days to go, you must utilise this time to go through at least one mock test a day. As they say, practice makes the man perfect. Taking mock tests and attempting previous years’ papers will give you an idea of what questions may come up in the examination. It will also help in figuring out how to toggle between sections and how much time to put where.
Revision.. Stick to your notes and all the basics. Go through all that you have already learnt and scan through the more elaborate topics. Do not start with anything new.
Trust what you know.. Now that there is limited time left for the UGC NET exam, there is no point in picking up a new topic and trying to learn a new subject. You must believe in your preparation and concentrate on what you know.
