A day before the examination is very important in our success and unfortunately we mostly don’t know the secret on how to spend this day. I have been committing this mistake since my primary school and it continued till my professional college. I noticed this mistake during my license and post-graduation examinations. So how should we spend the time before the exam?
We need to do the following things 2 days before the day of the exam.
- Close all the books and study material
It is very important to close your study books and material. Most of us don’t do that and we keep ourselves submerged in reading till minutes before the examination time. This is a very bad practice. Usually we don’t gain anything during this time and we just keep our neurons busy and waste neurons energy.
- Activities for the 2 days before the examination
Relax yourself. Go out with the family or have a picnic. Go out for lunch or lunch with the family.
Or have a gathering with friends and enjoy your time relax.
Play sports or get involved in indoor activities/games or movies etc.
And kneel down before ALLAH (GOD) and pray for your success.
- Sleeping Pattern
We should change our sleeping routine days before the examination. Mostly examinations are conducted in the morning or afternoon. As per my observation, most of us study at night and sleep through the day. So it is important to change the sleeping pattern before the day of the exam.
Go to bed early the night before the examination. If you can’t fall off to sleep, use sleeping pills so that you can have a smooth sleep and can wake up in the morning all fresh.
Have breakfast before going to take the exam. We should not go to examination venue hungry. On an empty stomach, the mind can’t perform well during examination.
In short, remember that you need to rest your neurons 2 days before the examination. Usually in the last days of preparation, we go through intensive study schedule and study even up to 18 hours per day. This intensive schedule definitely tires our neurons immensely. So rest your brain a couple of days before the big day so that your memory can serve you when it matters the most. Our success in the examination never depends on the preparation of a few days. It depends on our learning for a long period of time, observation and current studies.
All the best for all professionals who are struggling in their career!
