Set a Goal:
Candidates must identify their strong areas and also plan the amount of time that should spend on each of the sections/topics in order to complete the exam syllabus on time.
Go Through the Syllabus:
The candidates should go through all the important topics in the syllabus, divide the time according to the topics and note down the topics that need to be prepared first. Try to go through the previous year exam papers. Make a list of the topics according to their importance and previous year question papers.
Time managed is half the job done. Students' success in the exam is directly attached to how well they manage their time. Aspirants should solve the exam paper before time and stay one step ahead. If the candidate finds any question difficult then leave that question or mark that question, and move on other questions. Try to finish the exam before time so that you can again attempt the entire marked question at the end and revise your answers.
Practice Makes a Man Perfect:
Regular practice not only raises the speed level but raises the accuracy level also.These two are the key to success as the questions attempted by the candidates must be accurate.
Confidence is a must as it can boost your exam preparation.However, aspirants should know the difference between confidence and over confidence. Maintaining a gap between the two is crucial.
