Does thinking about entrance exams give you a chill?
Worried that you won’t be able to complete the syllabus?
Or are you more anxious about completing it but not remembering the correct formula while giving the competitive exam?
Let me begin by saying, it’s completely okay to feel all this. We have all been there.
Your parents, my parents, your teachers – everyone. We were all equally scared and nervous while preparing for these entrance exams. But it all turns out to be good if you properly schedule and implement the strategy you have made.
Realize that your aim is NOT just to complete the entire syllabus but you should have a clear understanding of the basics of each subject. Only then you can come out with flying colours in these competitive exams.
Being disciplined always pays off, whether we like it or not. Only when you have a fixed routine (a time table), you would optimally utilize your time to get the best results.
According to a recent study, it only takes 21 days to form an action, your habit. So, sit down, plan a practical time table and follow it dutifully. Make sure you set realistic goals and take short breaks between prolonged study hours to maintain productivity.
Ensure to track your progress and reward yourself time and again for following the schedule. It helps you stick to the time table for a longer time.
Organize your study material to know which subject and topics carry more weightage than others. You can get to know this by referring to previous year question papers or by getting guidance from your teachers and consultants.
Pay more attention to these topics. Try and complete these before and revise them regularly to ensure you are on top of things.
We cannot stress this enough. Make it a habit to solve practice papers and previous year question papers.
They will give you a clear understanding about the type of questions asked along with how much time you are taking to solve a paper. Knowing these two important aspects, you can improve on your timing as well as understanding of the subject.
There is a simple rule when it comes to passing entrance exams –
Don’t practice until you get it right. Practice until you can’t get it wrong.
This is only possible when you practice for these competitive exams day in and out. There’s absolutely no substitute or short cut to it. All you can do is revise smartly. While preparing for the exams, mark out the important points and read only these points during revision.
