How to Prepare

How to prepare for an examination is a very common query. Well, there is no hard and fast rule to do so. However, if the candidate will prepare strategically surely they will crack the exam.

  • First of all, prepare a time-table. Usual mistake that candidates do is that they divide days for each subject. However, better is to study all the subjects daily. It avoids monotony and candidates need not revise the completed topics every week.
  • Check syllabus and exam pattern. It is very important to know the exam and there is no other medium than exam pattern. The syllabus, on the other hand, provides direction to the preparation.
  • Instead of jumping from one book to another, it is better to stick with one good book and practice it thoroughly.
  • Another very important preparation material is sample paper, previous year question paper, and mock test. 50% of candidates preparation will be done automatically if they will attempt the study material.
  • It is equally important to have some time for oneself. All work no play do make Jack a dull boy. So, it is advised that candidates spear few hours between the rigorous practice schedule.
