Default Being busy before the exam

As I was registering for my November sitting for 1/P (11/10), I realized that I have family events the weekends before the exam (11/1 and 11/8), and as I get into super-study mode, I'm a little nervous about doing things before the exam, especially the weekend of.

Does anyone have any insight as far as whether I should go to these functions or if I should lock myself away and study those two days? I don't want to cheat myself out of passing, but I also don't want to miss out on seeing family that I haven't seen for a while.

Thanks.

You'll be fine with those two days as long as you have been preparing from before. In fact the two days probably will help you to relax and rid yourself of pre-exam jitters!
