A day before Test: key takeaways  [#permalink]

I know it's not always easy but it helps to sum up things.

So please help me with some key getaways which I can skim through just a day before the test.

Something like this (for Reading Comprehension):

Strategy:
1. See the size of passage to figure out how much weight you want to put on understanding each line
2. Read the first question, not the answer choices
3. Skim through the passage, don't waste your time on details
4. categorize between General Question or Specific Question
    a. For General question: Start Eliminating, if last 2 are left then use scoring system to answer
    b. Specific Question: Directly jump to the portion in tht passage, read it. Look at answer choices after you have gathered the thoughts
5. Key points
    a. Justify every word in the answer choice
    b. Avoid options with Extreme words
    c. Infer as little as possible
    d. Avoid taking notes; takes away lot of time
    e. Take initials for personality names used in the paragraph because at least one of the question would be around what X/Y/Z said

I am sorry for a seemingly foolish question but why?

I guess having something like this would help me/others have quick shot at the key points before going into the test. If someone else has taken a dig into it in past I am totally fine if people can share the link. I can add the key points to this post.

Hey meaditya ,

I am not sure what your question is but I would say don't study anything and try to calm down as much as possible. You must have learned alot and now is the time to think everything positive and just relax.

All the best :)

My Thoughts not different from Abhimahna. Just a day before the Test and so much things in your mind can only confuse but nothing else. Only thing which may prove beneficial if you have prepared math or Verbal flashCards just lightly revise them and Relax. Being Relax may prove more Beneficial a day before test.

Good Luck

Hi,

Better to do some mindfulness exercise that helps you stay calm. Watch some motivational videos and stay cheered up. The problem with last moment study is that you don't have time to improve if you find some weakness. It may not help your cause.
