I have a test called ABRSM in 25th. What should I do right before the test?
Well, obviously please avoid answers such as study, sleep...

don't study. Relax, clear your mind, and do something fun immediately before a test, study several days before it. If you're prepared and relaxed you concentrate better than if you're prepared and tense.

When I take tests, the beginning questions always stumble me, so I skip them until after I'm done with everything else, and the questions are suddenly so obvious and easy. I think that happens because I'm very nervous at the start but become familiar with the style of questions going through.

So, being at ease versus being apprehensive will make a huge difference on how well you do.
