Attend Your Classes
Attend your classes and this is may seem simple or basic. But seriously so many of you just don’t really go to classes and even if you do are present for the namesake. I will advise to go to class and attend the classes even if you feel they are not worth going. Skip the revision classes in the final few days of the course or the doubt classes unless you seriously need revision or have unanswered doubts.
- Go to class daily and don’t miss a day.
- Make notes and keep them complete having incomplete notes is the last thing you want.
- Teachers give tips and tricks to note them they will come in handy.
- Don’t underestimate standard books (NCERT).
Focus on your weak subjects
Be focused and deal with your weak subject. I know it sounds like a pain in the back to put the effort into something you are bad at but it is absolutely necessary if you wish to score well that you work on them. Every mark counts when it comes to making a good percentage.
- Be sincere with the subject as it is likely that since you are weak you neglect the subject.
- Create cheat sheets for the subject to help to learn.
- Create quizzes and feel free to ask your friends and mentor help.
How to tackle subjects

Use chapter-wise previous year questions: –
As the chapters in class get completed go through previous year question paper book and complete the chapter. If you don’t wish to buy, then get an older book (not more than 4-5 years) issued by the library. There is a high possibility that questions will be repeated.
- Do the questions of previous year question paper alongside question from a standard textbook?
- You should leave the complete question papers for the final month of preparation.
- These books also have formulas on them and can be used as a refresher.
Presentation Matters: –
