When exams are near, students feel stress and pressure. When you have a lot on your plate but with a restricted period of time, then its obvious, feeling stress. Examinations at any stage in a student’s life hold the potential to fasten their breath, slow down time, and quicken their heartbeat.

Manage your time smartly
When too little time is left, the first thing you must focus on is- time management. Ensure you give the required amount of time to each subject based on your proficiency and the vastness of the syllabus.
One way to plan your study could be to start preparing for exams in the reverse order, that is, prepare first for the last exam such that you start preparing for the first exam about 1 week before the date.
Create a timetable
At least 2 months prior to the exams, make study timetable. Giving enough time to understand new concepts and revision is important. You can take small breaks after particular time period. This will improve your productivity. Increase your study hour.
Make notes and Revise
While studying do not forget to take notes and highlight important points. Taken notes will help you to revise your subjects in an easy way. You can revise subjects instantly by accessing your previously made notes. It will save your precious time and help you to have a quick glance over your pointers in no time.
Revision is must before exam. One quick revision that can tell you how much you have learned is trying to explain the concepts of a topic to someone who doesn’t know it yet. It could be your sibling, parent, grandparent, friend or for that matter anyone who is ready to listen to you patiently. The moment you face trouble trying to explain a certain concept in common man’s terms, you will understand that you probably need more practice.
Start with high-weight age chapters and important topics
Your teachers must have guided you on an important chapter and how many marks they carry. Revise as per the important chapters and topics, to get 100% confidence. Mostly last three chapters are high-weight age chapters.
Solve Past year's question papers
SOLVE SAMPLE PAPERS AND PREVIOUS YEAR’S QUESTION PAPERS. This is one of pro tip to score 95% marks in offline exam. This is the main reason behind my 96.8 %. Sample papers will cover all the important topics and important questions. You can even score an easy 75–80 % by just learning through sample papers without touching the book. Try to solve at least 5 previous year’s question papers to get an idea of the exam pattern and important questions. Solving previous year’s question paper will boost your confidence.
