Important Preparation Tips

    • Exam Pattern: Before the preparation even begins, it is important to understand each and every aspects of the exam pattern. Students should thoroughly comprehend all the sections of the exam and make a list of all the topics covered in each subject.
    • Time  Management: After making the list, it is important to devote sufficient time to all the subjects. In order to ace any exam, time plays a crucial role in the preparation. Plan your study routine in such a manner that each topic gets adequate time for practice.
    • No Negative Marking: Since there is no negative marking, it makes no sense to leave any question. Make those questions your priority about which you are sure of and then try your best to answer all the remaining questions. Try not to leave any, even if you have to make a guess.
    • Study Plan:- Strategize your preparation plan. Jumping from one topic to another is just going to make chaos.  Choose one subject or even one topic wisely and complete it properly. Do not switch to another subject without completing the first.
    • Mock Tests:- At the beginning, cover all the topics, but start practicing mock tests for at least 2 months before the examination date. Do it with time limit to keep a track of your speed and accuracy.
    • Summarize all theories and concepts: At the time of revision, it would be best to keep a small notebook with all the important formulas, theories and concepts written in bullet points. It would make the eleventh hour revision easier and organized.
