Students deal with lots of stress during the examination days. We can reduce the stress and stay calm and get success by following these simple steps
1)Take practice tests. The single best way to prepare is to practice. Taking sample exams under similar conditions as the real one will familiarize you and increase your confidence Level.

3) Review your notes the day before. This will leave information fresh in your memory
