Below, we present a last-minute checklist for candidates leaving for the examination centre:
1. Admit Card / Hall-ticket
Make sure you are carrying the hall ticket or admit card. Without it, candidates will not be allowed to enter the examination center. Keep the admit card in a safe place in the bag or file or any other item you're likely to bring to the exam centre.
Just like admit cards, candidates cannot forget to carry essential stationery items such as pens, pencils and so on. Keep aside a separate stationery box which should include pens, pencils, eraser, scale, etc. It's recommended to keep spares pens and pencils for any emergency situation.
3. Clipboard or Writing Pad
A Clipboard can be helpful while writing the exam papers. It keeps the answer sheets at once place and helps in organising.
Though every examination centre will provide water, it's recommended to carry your own water bottle. It helps when there's a bottle around when you're thirsty while writing the paper. Instead of waiting for water to arrive, just take a quick sip. Carrying your own water also reduces the chance of falling sick by drinking water from other sources.
5. Exam Centre & transport arrangement
Make sure you're prepared to reach the exam centre well before time. It's a good idea to visit the centre with your parents or guardians a day before (if you haven't done so already) and figure out the route to take on March 5. It also helps, if you pre-arrange your transport details before. In most cases, parents or relatives take care of these details. In any other scenarios, talk to adults around you and figure out how to arrange
