*Keep a printout of your exam timetable on your study table so that you do not get confused with dates and subjects.

*Once you get the question paper, read it carefully and first attempt those questions that you are more confident of
* Presentation matters. Write short sentences. Write in points, give headings to long answers, and make sure your handwriting is neat.
* Time yourself while answering the paper. Maintain a speed so that you do not miss high scoring questions.
*Last but not the least do not indulge or help anyone in cheating
