Know Your Strengths & Weaknesses:

Another important part of your preparation is to identify your strong and weak areas. This way, you will be able to build on your strengths and work harder on improving your weak points.

Know Your Syllabus: 

When you sit down to study, you should know exactly what you have to study. Without knowing your syllabus thoroughly, you will not be able to make a timetable or plan your preparation. 

Study the Exam Pattern: 

While preparing for the exam, you must also become familiar with the exam pattern by taking sample papers and mock tests. Doing so will improve your chances of performing well in the examination.

Time Management:

One of the most important lessons you learn while preparing for competitive exams is how to manage your time. Students often waste a lot of time thinking about questions in the paper instead of actually solving them. 

Make Short Notes:

Instead of going through all the topics in detail at the time of the revision, the smart thing to do is to make short notes during your preparation and ensure that you use them for revision 

Know Your Strengths & Weaknesses:

Another important part of your preparation is to identify your strong and weak areas. This way, you will be able to build on your strengths and work harder on improving your weak points.

Practice: 

When it comes to examinations, practice is all that you need to brighten your chances of scoring well in the exam. If you practice well for the exam, your speed will improve and you will be more confident on the D-day.
