Plan and manage the time-table

You get maximum of 24 hours per day to study and you can’t study for all those 24 hours! So depending upon your schedule, prepare a time-table and then study accordingly. A minor change in it due to uncontroable circumstances is acceptable but otherwise follow it strictly. It will make you a disciplined student which will help you bear the desired fruits at the end!

By-heart the formulas

There are some basic formulas that are helpful in solving the complex queries, by-heart them. It saves a lot of your time as well as gives confidence in moving forward.

Make trigger words to remember the lengthy topics

Remembering a lengthy topic is sometimes easy but then remembering the start of it sometimes becomes a hurdle. In such a case, make a trigger word for a theory or a lengthy topic that is most important. Make the trigger word or a short-note which is easy to remember. Hence, once you think of that trigger word, the theory itself starts coming out easily and nicely.

Build confidence and don’t give up – ever

Don’t think too much of the result but rather give utmost importance to the processes that are required to be done at the moment. Is it the time management? Is it the particular theory? Is it the particular formula? Is it the particular subject? Whatever requires your first attention, give justice to it. Try to fulfill all the processes that you’re going through at the moment and result will take care of it itself. And all through it, remain confident. A moment to give up will never arise if you’ve given enough consideration to these processes. Result has to come and it will.
