Keep practicing question, just to practice the lenght of each question, since your day is coming. also remember to take a DAY OFF the day before your exam, you dont want to OVER-Saturate your brain with all the stuff, remember a fresh brain thinks way better than an exhausted one... So Be smart and relax the day before.

Good Luck! =)

Try to finish U World qbank. You can revise MTB within the last 2-3 days.

UW questions hands down.

Also, people who cram are at high risk of a stress-induced meltdown. If your UWSA shows a high score then relax and calm yourself down because your safe and there's nothing that will bring your score down in a few days.
A friend of mine got 260s in UWSA one week before the real deal. He stressed himself out with studying the last week so much that he didn't get much sleep and pretty much collapsed during the exam and ended up getting 230s.

I salute your extraordinary efforts. Good luck
