Burning midnight candle only put your brain under pressure which the resultant effect will be forgetting what you actually read the next day during exams.

Make sure you adequately meet up these requirements before you go in to write your papers.

Most people believe in prayers while the non-religious people don’t. Although the sad truth is that you can’t rely only on prayers to pass your exam. You need to work hard first, then commit your hard work to bear fruits through prayers. God still answer prayers but you don’t have to neglect your part. Commit everything in God’s hands through prayers and you will pass your papers in flying colors.
