- Ask your parents or someone close to check the route and address of the examination a day before. Reach examination hall at least an hour before, so you get enough time to get relax with the atmosphere.
Inside the examination hall:
- Take a deep breathe and relax.
- After receiving the question booklet and answer sheet, you will be asked to fill those properly, pay attention while feeling those columns as you can not redo that so fill it with a calm mind and listen and ask invigilator if you do not get any column. Do not fill the column if you are not sure about this.
- Three hours and three subjects and 90 questions, so, ideally you have one hour for one subject so divide the time carefully.
- Give the first hour to the subject, in which you are most confident. Do not stick with any question more than a minute and do the same for the rest.
- If you are good in all the subjects, then you must start it with the chemistry as it has less numerical problems.
- Do all the theory and conceptual problem first and then go for the numerical.
- Fill the OMR sheet carefully as once you fill the answer, you cannot change it as you have to use a ballpoint pen.
- While marking answers in the answer sheet, double check the question number in both the sheets. Recheck it before filing the answer.
- Do not do the guess work unless you are sure, as negative marking is there. However, intelligent guessing can be done if time allows you.
While doing the long calculation, choose estimation method. Kinetics in physics, calculus in maths and organic chemistry in chemistry are important key areas, revise them once again.
