Second, food and water. You can only eat and drink during your breaks, so take advantage of these opportunities. Bring light, healthy snacks that can keep you going for hours, like sandwiches, fruits, nuts, and granola bars.
While healthy foods are best for fueling your brain, the day of your test is not the time to try anything new. Stick with what you’re familiar with. If you regularly take any medications, pack these as well.
Third, wear comfortable clothes you can sit in for hours. Dress in layers so you can manage your temperature.
Lastly, avoid bringing unnecessary items like jewelry, a watch, or electronics. Extra items must be stored in a locker.
There are exceptions for personal items you require for medical reasons, such as if you have diabetes or require accommodation for a physical disability. But remember, you must apply for these accommodations in advance.
