The last few days before the UPSC Prelims 2022 are crucial. A lot is going on in the minds of the IAS aspirants, and it is normal to get nervous as the exam approaches closer.

Let’s have a look at these tips to make your UPSC Prelims 2022 exam experience a pleasant one! 

Stay Positive

As Dalai Lama once said “Choose to be optimistic, it feels better”; staying positive and refraining from negative thoughts at this stage can help you immensely in your UPSC Prelims Exam preparation. 

The best way to stay positive is to have unquestionable confidence in yourself and your preparation. It is generally recommended to not touch upon any new topic for studies during the last few days before the main exam. 

Calm your Mind

Keep your mind calm during these stressful times. Pat yourself on the back for studying hard throughout the year and giving your best effort. You have done the best you could have. So, just relax and calm your mind. It will help your brain to function more efficiently. 

This video will help you stay calm as our Current Affairs faculty, Prem Sodhani sir shares some valuable last-minute preparation tips for the UPSC Prelims 2022 exam:

Resist the Urge to Study a New Topic 

Studying a new topic or attempting a mock test before the exam will only make you more stressed and disturb your mental peace. Instead, you should revise all you have studied till now. This will enhance your confidence manifold and give you a sense of accomplishment.  

Focus on Revision

Revision in the last few days will boost your confidence manifold. The best way to effectively revise for the Prelims 2022 exam is to refer to self-prepared notes. The more you revise the less you err in the exam. 

The importance of revision is twofold. Firstly, it will help you remember and recall all the important information, facts, figures and data. Secondly, if revision is done correctly it will help you increase your confidence and reduce anxiousness. 

Don’t Compromise on your Sleep

It goes without saying that sound sleep is indispensable for better performance in the exam hall. Generally, students tend to study more in the last month before the main exam to accumulate as much information as possible. While doing that, they often keep their sleep cycle at bay and eventually end up disturbing it. 

You should avoid this activity at all costs and get a proper 7-8 hours of sleep for better mental clarity. 

We are sure these tips will come in handy during your last crucial days before the UPSC Prelims 2022 exam. Follow them to get an edge and pave the way for success!
