  • Some Students start preparing for the competitive exams actively and drop the tempo in the middle which is a harmful threat to the career. This must be avoided.
  • One must not surrender to the influences of family members, friends, and relatives who give negative advice and wrong directions.
  • It is better to avoid those people who influence you in various ways.
  • It the notification for any exam is postponed, do not quit preparation. Feel that, you have got more time to prepare.

If you try to overcome the weaknesses and threats, it will be very easy to get success in competitive exams. CollegeDekho wishes ‘Good Luck’ to all the aspirants who are preparing for competitive exams.
