How do I check correct exposure in Av or Tv ?

You don’t.

The camera selects the correct exposure for you: the meter is *always* centered.*

* Up to a point. Sometimes the shutter speed can never be fast enough, or the aperture can’t open up wide enough, etc. That’s why they sell tripods, fast lenses,  lighting, neutral density filters, etc., to extend the operating range of the camera.
