  • Prepare a time table with time allotment for each section: Prepare a schedule which will help you get in touch with all the sections on a regular basis. This practice is a little tough to continue but if followed properly, it will bear you some amazing results which you can hardly believe.
  • Follow the best of resources: Resources are those platforms which make you well- equipped with information for any examination. Make sure you follow the best of resources which will enlighten your knowledge and make you evolve as a champion!
  • Solve questions without the help of solutions: Try to solve problems without referring to the solutions. This practice will make you confident when you make approaches for solving problems. You may cross check the final answers but don’t refer to the entire detailed solution while solving a question.
  • Try out different ways of solving a problem: Try solving a problem in different ways. This habit will enhance your speed and make you analyse the method which is the least time consuming among all other methods.

Last but not the least, trust on your efforts and endeavour because “Believe you can and you are halfway there”.
