This will help in your final preparation for the exam and it will be your last minute revision before the exam.
7. Take proper sleep

So sleep on time so that the next day you’re wide and fresh and you can study more.
Whenever you finish one particular chapter, take a break and just go through it roughly once. If while turning the page you realize that you don’t remember something then never panic. Go ahead and start with another, as sometimes the mind fails to recollect. Then next day the first thing you should is to revise what you did the previous day. It will help you remember it more thoroughly.
9. Discuss with your friends
It is very important when you just speak out whatever you learnt as it gives you the confidence that you remember the things. You can discuss it with your friends in very simple terms as they are just 5 years old, you will start imaging things and it will help you remember it thoroughly. And if they are not interested or busy, explain what you learnt either to your mother or your elder sibling or a younger one. This will surely help you in remembering whatever you learnt and will give you the confidence when you finally give your exam and you can write your papers with Confidence.
