Let’s look at this possible scenario; even the world’s best athlete can’t run for 24 hours at a stretch. Bringing it down to your academic life; you need to craft a routine that works for you.

If you can assume an exam condition, take off all reading materials and test your ability so far, you’ll not find the examination hall intimidating. Prepare yourself mentally and test yourself with possible questions. Always hone your focus on answering all the questions. However, in the end, if you couldn’t achieve that, don’t call it a quit. Go back to work, prepare more and test yourself, you’ll most probably get better. Ensure you get all your writing materials needed for your exams ready, and don’t leave everything until the examination day.
