Here are some of the last minute tips to relieve you from the exam stress and anxiety:

1. Do  last years’ question papers:There  are a finite number of questions that will be asked in the question paper. Familiarize yourself with these questions by solving the previous years’ question papers and sample papers. If you are one of those who does all revision at the last moment only,  this piece of advice is probably the most valuable one. Also answer key of ncert books are also available on internet free of cost. This will help saves your time.

2. Eat healthy: Eat  healthy and everything else will fall in place. Having a healthy diet will enable  you to focus on the task at hand  and not worry about  everything  else;  for instance like having trouble at memorizing, physical weaknesses,  stress etc. The right amount of minerals, iron, and vitamin will be provided by fruits and vegetables and also keep you and your bodily functions at a optimal level  throughout. Avoid any kind of junk food and  having  anything  that contains saturated  fat. Intake  of  a large  amount of caffeinated  drinks  has also not proved to be helpful  as its  high  caffeine content might keep you awake for the next 8 to 10 hours, but you might just crash during the exams.

3. Be  positive  and relax: Keeping the negative vibes off  your mind and being in  a happy state of mind is of essence in performing optimally during exams.

i.  Listen to a soothing and relaxing music for a joyful soul. Make sure the music you are listening to does not induce slumber.

ii.  Exercise  your body. Exercise  improves  the flow  of  blood  on your body, which implies the transportation of more oxygen to your brain. Good supply of oxygen to the brain helps it to function efficiently.

iii. Mediation  and yoga have been age-old remedies  for stress and anxiety.  Take  a deep breath, meditate for  few minutes till you calm yourself and chill. All is well.

4.    Sound sleep:  A healthy body and mind  will keep the stressful  soul  at bay and helps  in

 rejuvenation. Having a 6 to 7 hour sleep is essential for any student who is preparing for exams.  Pulling an all-night        study session  without  appropriate  amount of  sleep  would lead to fatigue in  the  examination  hall. Sleep    deprivation has a consequent effect of memory loss. The ability to           maintain concentration and memory recall is maintain and improved when the individual gets a good     amount of rest.

Following these simple tips will be beneficial and you will have a good time dealing with the exam monsters that otherwise threaten to take a toll on you.
