You need proper sleep, at least 7 hours a day. Good sleep helps your brain function well, thus memory works better. Also, drink herbal teas and eat more chocolate (it's very useful for a brain), If you feel worried about exams, go outside, do some physical exercise it helps to distract your worries, talk with friends and family, find people that are in the same situation and share with them.

Organise Your Notes

Organise your written material into sub-headings, charts, bullet points, and diagrams. Too much written material can be off-putting. By breaking up your work, exam preparation becomes more productive.

The Bedtime Reminder

The brain remembers and absorbs information especially well just before you fall asleep. During this time say to yourself out loud or inside your mind: "Tomorrow I will work hard from a calm and relaxed state". This will encourage you to start the next day in the best possible way.

Stress Is Not All Bad

Exam stress need not always be negative - it's designed to prompt you into action, so use it to your advantage. In small amounts stress will encourage you to work harder, and think faster. Just don't let it build up too much.

Time Management

Time-management is one of the key skills for effective revision. Stress often comes from the belief that you are running out of time to prepare; by allocating time blocks for each important topic nothing will be missed and your worries will disappear.

Get A Study Buddy

It's good to know others are in the same boat as you. During exam preparation, find someone to study with. This strategy makes each of you accountable to one another, and it makes revision more interactive and enjoyable.

Take Some Perspective

When exams are upon you, it's difficult to think about anything else. Place your examinations in perspective - the world will not end if you fail.

Generate a positive state

One of the biggest predictors of behaviour is your internal state. If you feel good in the build-up to your exams, the chances of performing well are increased. Take 5 minutes before exams to fill your mind with positive material to get fired up for action.

Learn From Your Mistakes

Exam stress often comes from the fear of making mistakes. Unfortunately mistakes are an unavoidable component of exams. Learn from your mistakes by seeing failure as feedback to stay positive.

Don't Aim For Perfection

Exam stress is often the result of worrying about making mistakes. Accepting that perfection can never be achieved, and that there will always be room for improvement, takes some of the pressure off.

To prepare for any exam there are some things you need to keep in mind always.

First you decide what you want to do. If the exam is your passion than you need to work hard to make your dream come true.

Write your goal on the paper and stick it at the place where you can see it always.

Do not take stress about the exam. Do yoga and exercise to be stress free and active during the preparation.

Stay away from the distractions like social media, a lot of friends, and mobile.

Make a strategy or study plan that how you will start and cover all the topics in available time period.

You must well aware of your goal where you are going. Imagine the result if you crack the exam to be motivated during the preparation.

List down the complete syllabus and start with important topics which cover more weightage in the exam. First clear you basic concepts and then go for the exercise or question.

Solving previous year papers is the best practice to prepare for any exam.

So fix your aim, make a strategy to crack it and stick with it until you reach to your goal.

All the best.

Due to some informational portals, people who prepare a lot for the exam are less stressed before the exam day, than people who couldn't concentrate on learning something. You don't have to do anything particular for physical and mental preparation. Just don't take yourself into a stress. Live as usual, sleep as usual, eat and drink as usual and so on and so forth. During preparing for the exam don't forget about taking breaks and relaxing. Relaxing without thinking about education - sounds good, doesn't it? And the night before the exam go to sleep earlier and everything will be OK.

For the resume for grad school admission, I am sure that a good sleep before an exam is the best physical preparation. Also, you shouldn't have to starve before an exam. Try to have a breakfast as usual on the exam day. In addition to all of that, wake up earlier to have a few minutes to calm yourself, not to hurry up and not to be late for the exam itself. It is a good idea to take some dark chocolate with you - they say it helps to think more thoroughly. Also, I agree with those who wrote that a good preparation is the best way to be calm.
