One very common mistake most students make, is that they carry a butt-load of tension with them in the exam hall. Be it just a simple aptitude test to qualify for a company’s interview or be it major exams like CAT, etc. They go into the exam hall thinking its the end of the world for them if they don’t clear it, and this in fact works against the sole purpose of them writing the exam!. You may have heard or even noticed that “nerves”( feeling tensed) has usually helped you before and things have worked out well Well as they say, a little bit of nerves is always good 😉 . It shows that you’ve put in some effort into your preparation. But things take a wrong turn when you get nervous to the point where you start sweating and start looking at your fellow classmates wondering “Oh my god! They’re answering everything and I’m still stuck on this problem!”. A few simple aptitude exam strategies will help you not reach that drastic situation and hopefully keep you busy in your own attempt to clear the exam!
