Aspirants think that failure is a setback when it is just one more test drive through the rough roads. You already got the hang of the type of question asked and the time taken by each type of question. So that you can manage your time better this time.
  • Be wise and revise: You must be getting new information from all around you. People trying to help you by pitching new ideas and topics to ease your preparation are actually making it more challenging. Any new data you try to feed your brain as a booster is going to jam it. So, whatever you have learned till now, trust it and revise it thoroughly.Revise daily whatever you learn previous day.
  • Health should be the priority: Under the COVID-19 breakdown situation, You should take care of your health first and try to get at least 8 hours of sleep every day to make the best use of your knowledge. Avoid pulling an all-nighter a day right before the examination for it affects your ability to concentrate during the examination. You can also try exercising for 15 minutes every day because it gets the blood flowing. It resets your brain, increases blood flow to the brain and prepares you for critical thinking and retention.
  • Speed and Accuracy: Keep these two words in mind. For any Competitive exam, Speed and Accuracy plays a very important role. You have to maintain both if any of it is not followed you might get caught in a mess. You can’t afford to do a blunder of such magnitude.
