Many Students miss out the concept of concentration, the key component of preparation for the entrance exam. They run behind strategies, tricks, tips but miss out most important element – i.e. Concentration.
Learning and remembering become effective when you concentrate on the topic while studying it. You will be able to remember things for a longer time, which means you need not revise again and again. If you do a work with full concentration you will surely finish off the work quicker, thereby saving time. It also saves your time by reducing the need for revision.
You can then use this saved time in other activities. If you save time by studying with concentration, you will be free from stress and will feel confident to face the preparation and crack the examination.
Most students plan to finish the syllabus first and keep last month of preparation for solving mock tests. To perform best in an exam, try to finish off the syllabus much before. While others keep waiting for the syllabus to get over in their classes, you can complete the syllabus by self-study or by taking help of online tutorials.
As we all know, most of the students start practicing their mock tests in the last month. Thus, to stay ahead of the competition, we can begin attempting mock tests from the very beginning. No matter if your syllabus is not yet complete, you should still start solving mock tests. Mock tests allow you to understand the examination and prepare accordingly. Once you do complete your syllabus, re-attempt these papers to test your performance.
Do not develop a habit of reading or revising again and again. Most students have this habit because it is easy to sit in place and simply keep reading. You can be ahead of the competition by simply breaking this habit. As of my experience, practicing with a pen and paper will be more beneficial.
The reason that practice is the ultimate key to success is that when you practice, simultaneously with practice you also revise, memorize, solve, think and attempt questions. All essential elements of your entrance exam get covered under “Practice”. So forget everything and always have a pen in hand while preparation.
