Many people read out the things to rote out they do not understand what are the concepts. So my request to you is do not rote the things and try and understand the concepts reading the theory part in the book and solve the numericals given in the exercise.
- Regularize yourself
one thing that is needed for the preparation of an examination and qualifying it is regularity. If a student is regular to a studies no matter how intelligent he is or how average he is or how mediocre he is, the only thing that matters is how regularly you put in the efforts and study the concepts with devotion and hard work.
- Formula to succeed
The formula to succeed is the formula itself that is how longer you can sustain the formula and use it to your effectiveness in the examination. It is very important that a student must remember all the formula before giving the examination and apply it in the examination.
- Time management
We all know that time is very important, time and tide wait for none. We just have to manage time and not waste time in a single question during the examination and leave the questions which we can solve and are confident about. In Examination we must know what is important and what not. So we must practice daily within the stipulated time period that we are going to get in the examination and maintain discipline for that time period that will help the students to focus more on examination.
- Practice sums regularly

Hence this art of solving the questions which we know makes us confident during the examination to solve maximum amount of questions within the given time frame.
- Being positive
To maintain the positivity is a major challenge for the aspirants. The aspirants get influenced by their family and friends in a negative direction and can even be depressed by comparing themselves to their friends or any other family member who is preparing for the same examination. So it is important to keep away from such negativities and stay focused to your preparation.
