Friends, remember negative marking or not its the number of correct answers that will get you the score required to qualify the examination with merit. Taking these few points we will now discuss the things you need to take care of in the next few days and in the examination hall:

Analyzing your mocks: With nearly one and a half week left for the examination, you all are bound to be practising a couple of mocks. Analyse your performance in those immediately or a bit later after completion. You need to pay attention more to the questions which you found troubling, took longer than expected, required to be re-read and finally the ones which left out to be unattempted.
Adding this in your list of compelling habits, would help you to be ready when you are in the examination hall, as there you would be more than capable in identifying the questions to attempt at a very first sight.

Know Your Strengths & Weaknesses: After analyzing your mocks properly, you would get a better idea of the topics in which you are the most comfortable and take the least time to clear. In addition to this, you would also know the topics that are outside of your comfort zone and demands a little extra effort to become used to. Revisiting your subject knowledge sources at this point of time, with a clear idea of what exact portions you need to cover, will surely save your time.
Preparation & Implementation of Strategy: Now that you know your strengths & weaknesses, you can move onto make a proper strategy of what to attempt, section wise & topic wise. Section wise you can choose to start with any one of the three and finish it with ease. Topic wise you would know at the first look which question you have to attempt and which ones are to be revisited later. Implementation of your strategy is necessary in the next few mocks as they would help you in deciding if it works in your favour or not and hence bring out the changes accordingly.
Speed with Accuracy: Despite the paper having no negative marking, it is still advisable to attempt questions with accuracy. Reason behind this is that an accurate answer that matches with the option provided gives you confidence inside the examination hall and saves you from pondering over the previous question while attempting the current one. So, be accurate and avoid attempting the questions with half assurance.
Time Management: Any strategy cannot be completed without a proper time management factor. A couple of seconds saved in attempting a question buys you a few more for the next. Similarly, avoiding re reading a question more than twice. Move on to the next question and leave it for the last minutes of the exam. If you still feel doubtful about it. Don’t worry about losing a possible mark as if the questions ahead might provide you the score and time to revisit the marked question. 
Anxiety regarding new topics: While attempting the mocks, you might feel that there are topics you have left totally untouched and practicing those might fetch you a better score. Friends, every topic demands some time to be proficient and even day & night practice of a totally new area might not only waste your time but also leave you being frustrated if a favourable outcome isn’t achieved. Use these days to master the lesser known topics instead of jumping to a totally new boat.   
Wise and Informed Decisions: Many a times it is seen that aspirants complain about not being able to even go through the whole paper. What follows is the disappointment of calculating what could have been. Following all the above steps would  surely help you to make correct choices of the questions to attempt in a sequence matching with your comfort level and thus enabling you to cover the entire paper and perform as according to your ability.
Last but not the least clearly battles are won when you play using your strengths smartly.So, use the days left to enhance your prowess for the examinations. Prepare your strategy; go in with all guns loaded and we will see you smiling at your efforts when the results are out in March 2018.
