We have been preparing for the exams so hard from the last few months but as the day come closer the fear and anxiety increases. Most of the students get frightened and panic because of the exam fear. We know you must have gone through the whole syllabus once, solved many papers, have studied 10-12 hours and spent countless sleepless nights. But as we are talking about the last 15 days, we would suggest all of you to stop…..and take a pause. We’ll give you 15 tips for the last 15 days before exams. Yes, you have read it right. It’s time to take a break and break the ice. It’s time to stop following the general approach and it’s the time to introduce SMART WORK in the picture.
See, I am not telling you it’s going to be easy. I am telling you it’s going to be worth it.
It is important to do the right things at the right time. Smart work saves time and builds confidence. Studying 18 hours a day is not healthy. What most effective is studying with full concentration in small pockets and take short breaks in between. The focus is not on How Long you have studied but on How Much you have studied.

Tips for 15 Days Before Exams
Although preparation of exams varies from individual to individual. But still keeping in mind the general perceptive, we are sharing here simple yet smart tips that might help in 15 days before the exam.
Keep yourself motivated all the time
Believe me, if you think confidently, you will not feel pressure for sure. Not bragging but you can follow CA91 on Instagram for daily motivation, just saying.
Include some time for exercise or meditation in your daily routine. Try to start your day with meditation or exercise, it will keep you energized for the rest of the day and help you focus better.
Take a light and healthy diet
Before and during the exam the diet you take should be light yet healthy. Avoid snacking on unhealthy fast foods. You can keep some healthy snacks for your midnight cravings during exams.
Take at least 6 hours of sleep. Don’t compromise on your sleep as it will have a negative impact on your health.
Stop using social media or any other distractive media until exams. We are not asking to completely avoid social media but only those which distract you.
Choose the time you spend online wisely
Be selective in what you spend your time online on. There are plenty of sources for revisionary videos, amendments, etc which can turn out to be a boon for you.
Sit and make a revision plan. Prioritize the hard chapters and devote maximum time to them. Set daily targets and complete the portion you have decided. Allocate your time to each subject. You can either give the same amount of time or can divide the time according to your ability level in each subject.
Smart Selective Studies
Do selective studies but smartly. Pay more attention to the chapter with high weightage in the exam. But go through each and every chapter once even if any chapter holds less weightage. As you never know what will come in the paper so it’s better to have at least a basic idea of that topic which is left.
Understand the Paper Pattern
Understand the pattern of the exam paper and even try to solve them. Try to solve 2 papers daily as like you are giving actual exam in the examination hall. By doing this you will immediately get to know where you are lacking.
RTPs and MTPs
Especially for the CA exams, go through the RTPs and MTPs issued by the Institute properly. Some questions are directly asked from these so contributing some time for them might prove to be a boon for you.
Try to give as many mock tests as possible. Try to give your mock tests in the duration of your exam. For example, if your exam is from 2 PM to 5 PM, ensure that you sit and give your mock tests during those hours only. Create the atmosphere of your exam hall so that you feel comfortable in the actual exam hall itself.
Be Thorough with the DOs and DON’Ts of Exam
Some exams have specific DOs and DON’Ts. For example, in CA exams we have to only write our answers in Black ink. Be aware of what are the DO’s and DON’Ts of your exam so that it doesn’t throw you in panic mode in the exam hall.
Don’t Refer to New Material
Don’t try to refer to any new study material. It will disturb your schedule, will frustrate you and ultimately stress you out.
Don’t try to compare your preparation with those of others. It will either make you overconfident or throw you in a panic mode.
Be True to Yourself
Be true to yourself. See no one is going to help you. You are the captain of your ship. Give your 1000% to achieve that 100%. Fully dedicate yourself towards the goal without any distraction.
Remember, Success does not lie in the Results, It lies in Efforts. Being the Best is not important, doing the Best is important.
