1. An insight into the Syllabus & Exam Pattern
Knowing the syllabus and exam pattern is the prerequisite to understand and prepare for any examination whatsoever. It is imperative for students to thoroughly scan through the syllabus for the exam and make note of the weightage each chapter carries. Besides that, scanning through previous year papers can help understand the examination and familiarize you with types of questions asked, difficulty level etc., thereby giving you an edge over others.
2. Plan by setting targets
Nothing goes wrong if you have the right plan. A judicious plan is one that includes a proper time table or a study schedule, which helps in timely preparation and keeps you disciplined. Apart from that, setting specific, realistic and attainable goals keeps procrastination at bay as each task is assigned a duration and is supposed to be completed on the set date and time. This not only helps you get rid of haphazardness but also helps you determine how much work is done and how much is left to be done.
3. Get your fundamentals clear
The race is half won if your fundamentals and concepts are clear. Therefore, it is advisable to understand the concepts and learn. Conceptual and application based learning paves way to success as you can remember them for a long time. While doing so, keep making notes, highlight the important information, and make a formulae sheet where you can pen down all the formulae, equations or difficult terminologies. This will aid you in quick revision during exam time without having to go through the entire book.
4. Gauge your preparation
It is essential to monitor your progress from time to time. In order to do that, solve at least two sample papers or mock tests in a week. This will not only help you demarcate your strengths and weaknesses but will also help you access how much you need to prepare and what all you need to focus on. Attempting such time-bound tests will give you the real feel of the exam environment and boost your preparation by increasing your speed and accuracy. This will also help you track the time you take to solve a question and encourage you to look for ways and shortcuts to speed up your calculations. Apart from that, evaluating your answer sheets can help you see through your mistakes and work on them. This will help you overcome exam stress and anxiety, thereby boosting your confidence and saving you from getting jitters when appearing in the real exam.
5. Have faith in your abilities
Faith is the foundation stone of the path to success that guides and motivates you when you feel like giving up. It helps you build endurance and the will to succeed and overcome all the hurdles that come your way. Having faith in your abilities can leverage your opportunities by building your confidence and enhancing your personality. Students should, thus, learn to cultivate self-belief by striving sufficiently for their goals and believing that they can and they will.
Finally, it is important to eat right as a healthy diet plays a significant role in keeping your mind healthy. Cut down on junk food and include more green vegetables and fresh fruits in your diet. Do not compromise on recreational activities and make time for them. Go for a walk or do yoga or meditation to rejuvenate your mind and help it stay clear of any disturbing thoughts. Besides that, sleep well. A good sleep not only stimulates your memory but also increases your attention span.
