Pile up Stock Knowledge
Someone told me that many honor students even from reputable school also flunked the examination, and they are many, in other words, the outcome of the examination doesn’t rely on its intellectual knowledge.

The licensure examination is not like a quiz bee thing wherein most intelligent individuals are most likely to succeed. With stock knowledge, it is the key in passing any licensure examination, and it takes a lot of perseverance to do it.

Don’t push yourself reviewing everyday. You also need to relax to keep going and energized. Bear in mind that even the greatest chess grandmasters around the world plays sports or find time to unwind.

Don’t Pressure Yourself
You are determined to pass the examination, and what will people speak of your performance is irrelevant they are not the ones that supported your collegiate fees and expenses. Be sure you are giving your best shot. Don’t mind other people’s expectation.

Before the Examination
Most examinees usually relax themselves three days prior to the examination day. Make sure that you have the necessary materials with you that you will need in the examination and you know your room assignment.
