Exam day

Do not overstress yourself by thinking much about exam result, as it would not give you the peace of mind required before the exam

when you have peace of mind you will have the presence of mind and with that success will follow, Be aware of it

Visit the examination center a day before the exam, to avoid any last-minute delays as sometimes locations are incorrectly marked on the GPS apps

Have a good sleep with light food before going to the exam, Get your biological clock tuned to your AWS exam timings— especially for the people who study at night.

Do not read any new study material or books. Concentrate on the revision of content you have been preparing to date

Keep the mind in a calm state because recollection and analysis plays a crucial role in clearing the exam

No pen/pencil is needed and posses 2 original id cards to exam preferably passport and pan card

Use elimination technique wisely and look for the wrong option out of the given rather than the right one, there is no negative marking so make use of it

Certain questions we will be in dilemma while answering, so keep then mark for review and allocate the last 20min for those questions.
