- Reading the chapter
Reading the entire chapter is good but not on the day before the exam. It will not just creates unnecessary jargon in your brain but wastes time as well.

Neither do they eat proper foods nor do they sleep properly. Our body needs at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep to function fully. And without which your body will go beyond our control.
- Going through someone else’s notes
The night before the exam calls for self-study. Go through the notes and bookmarks you have gathered in that semester and make sure you remember them properly. However, many students get under confident when they check out other people’s notes. They feel that those notes have better information than their own. As a result, they end up reading others’ notes, forgetting their own notes. The entire process cause a chaotic scene in the brain. As a result, the students end up forgetting what they have studied.
- Reading till you enter the center

So, if you do not give your brain adequate time to sleep, the brain won’t be able to decompress the task. As a result, the students cannot think rationally and they end up with a bad result.
Instead of just studying continuously, you can put a full stop to studying and memorize the things that you have already learnt.
