First things first:
Take a print out of the hall ticket and paste the photo. Do not forget to carry an original ID proof. Also, do not forget to carry the photocopy of the original ID proof you are carrying. Make the necessary arrangements well in advance to avoid any last minute hassle. If possible, visit your centre once to know about the methods to reach and the time it takes to reach the centre. Prioritize these tasks over anything else.
Revise the basics:
Revise the concepts that you have learnt so far. If you want to take SBI PO mock tests, do it before Friday. Avoid taking mock tests on the day before the exam.
If you have noted down the mistakes you usually make in the mocks, go through them. Doing so will help to ensure that you do not repeat the same mistakes on the day of the exam. Revise all the basic concepts and formulae once.
One of the most important last minute tips for SBI PO prelims exam is to avoid starting a new topic in these last 2 days. Stick to the topics you are comfortable with and revise them instead of starting something afresh.
On the D-day:
Start early for your centre. Make sure that you have taken your original ID proof, photocopy of your original ID proof, admit card and photos before leaving for your centre. For the next 2 days, avoid eating food that is hard to digest. Eat light. Do not skip your breakfast on the day of the exam. Also, try to have a good night’s sleep on the day before the exam. Being sharp for the entire duration of the exam is extremely important. So, hit the sack early on the day before the exam.
If the exam turns out to be tough, do not panic. Try to maintain your composure. Ensure that you deliver your best. If the exam turns out to be easy, avoid getting complacent. Try to push your scores as high as possible. As is the case with all competitive exams, it is the relative performance that counts. Therefore, avoid going in with any preconceived notions about the level of difficulty of the exam. Decide the number of questions you need to attempt after the exam starts.
Do not get into a tussle with a question. If a question proves to be too tough to handle, skip it without second thoughts. Steer clear of the time sinks to ensure that you do not end up wasting the few precious minutes available.
With the introduction of sectional timings, the exam has essentially become three 20 minute tests. Therefore, try to maximize your scores in each of the sections. Even if a particular section did not go as well as you planned, start the next section with renewed vigour. Do not let the inability to perform in a section hinder your ability to perform in some other section.
