Make a Proper Time-Table:

The first and foremost step to prepare for the entrance examination is to make a time table and to ensure that you stick to it. Proper time table will give you an exact idea of what you are required to study and the time required for it, which will, in turn, help you stay focused & goal-oriented.

Get Your Basics Right:

During your preparation, you must ensure that your basics and fundamentals are in place. Brushing up the basic concepts of a subject will help you tackle difficult questions in that area with great aplomb. Moreover, you are evaluated in entrance examinations based on your understanding of these.

Get Yourself into Examination Mode:

Practice as many sample tests or mock tests as you can. Ask for suggestions from your lecturer/tutor on what to expect in the examination, or what course materials should one refer to, and how to prioritise study time for the syllabus.

Don’t Forget to Revise:

Revision is the key to stay confident during the preparation process. You must leave an ample amount of time to revise your subjects. As you finish preparing a topic, you must add to your schedule the day and time when it should be revised before you move on to the next topic.

Maintain your Physical and Mental balance:

It has been observed quite often that students neglect their health while preparing for examinations. Not staying physically fit can negatively impact your mental health and might even affect your performance on the exam day. Therefore, you must focus on your mental and physical health by eating well and exercising daily. You must also sleep on time every day so that your body clock works in sync with the time slot of your final examination.
