Firstly, you need to answer the questions with clarity and lucidity. You cannot afford to take a chance that day.

Keep your cool. And most importantly, do not confine your answers to ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ alone. Give an explanation to why you think and believe that your perception is strong. You can impress the judges easily.
Sentence starters like ‘I believe’, ‘I feel strongly’ can add an extra sparkle to your answers rather than answering them with ‘I guess’ or ‘I think’. Pause. Take deep breaths and relax.
