There will be no place in the examination centre for safekeeping items. So it will be better to keep any valuable items at home. But don’t forget to carry your admit card and required photographs (one passport size and one postcard size pasted on Performa).
The last time to enter the exam centre is 9:30 AM. No candidate can get entry after that scheduled time. So try to reach the exam centre minimum 1 hour before the scheduled time, considering weather, traffic and location of the exam centre.
