” Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, Defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win… “

So take enough mock tests, simulate exam environment and sharpen your weapons.

Finally, this one thought of Swami Vivekanandji was with me all throughout..

” Take up one idea. Make that idea your life. Think of it, Dream of it, Live on that idea.  Let your brain, your muscles, every part of your body, be full of that idea and leave every other idea alone…
That is the way to success”

I  believe single minded Focus,  Consistent efforts,  Right strategy and Firm Belief in Your own self can help you sail through..!!
