How to perform better in competitions?

I m in 9th grade at present. I am able to solve quite high difficulty level of problems in home or school. But I fail to perform in competitive exams. What should I do?

In competitions you usually have more than one problem; if you get stuck in one, turn to the next one (even if it is harder), and then try again the first one. Forget everything else, it's you against the problems (and the time limit!). Don't give up until the end; in many occasions you can get divine inspiration in the last minute. And, most importantly, enjoy it!

For preparation, I recommend problems from past competitions of the contest you aim for, so that you get an idea of what to expect the day of the exam. Esteban Gomezllata · 4 years, 7 months ago
