In order to excel at competitive exams in India, you need to follow some strategies that will help you during your preparation period. The pressure of competitive exams on students hovers over them but if they do everything right, study with full concentration and try to make their time productive along with following some simple yet effective strategies then it wouldn’t be hard for them. Let’s have a look at 5 Strategies That Will Help You Excel In Competitive Exams:
Creating a timetable may seem like an easy thing to do but as easy it is to create a timetable, it is very difficult to follow it. To make sure that you excel in competitive exams, you need to follow the routine and timetable that you made & plan your calendar accordingly. Along with following a timetable, it is advisable that you stick strictly to the timetable and don’t make any major changes to your timetable as it can disrupt the whole schedule that you had made.
Make sure that your timetable is properly organized and you give more time to weaker sections that will help you improve at them. Along with studies, make sure that you leave some time for your relaxation that will help you bust off extra stress and clear your mind.
You can allot a break of 10-15 minutes after every 2-3 hours during which you can check your social handles, listen to some music, take some minutes to play a game like Solitaire that is very good to bust off excess stress and Solitaire has different variants like Spider, Freecell, Klondike Solitaire, etc. These little breaks can be energizers that will recharge your mind and help you focus on your studies.
As mentioned, you should include breaks in your timetable to bust off excess stress. A stress-free mind is able to memorize much more information and study without any problem than a stressful mind. Any student who wishes to excel at competitive exams in India should refrain from getting stressed out about exams. When you get stressed out then you will be hurting yourself since you won’t be able to study as you should be studying.
Whenever you feel like you’re getting stressed out, try to involve yourself in recreational activities, talk with someone who can console you, and try to rejuvenate your mind towards the goal, which is to excel at the competitive exams. One of the things that many students find helpful is meditation. Meditation is something that you should include in your daily timetable that will help you calm your mind.
While preparing for competitive exams in India, overlapping topics is something that happens with many aspirants. While preparing different subjects simultaneously, similar topics from these subjects overlap and many aspirants are not familiar with the art of correlation.
If you find a topic to be overlapping in different subjects, cover such topics at the earliest and try to cover such topics once since it is an overlapping topic, and doing it once will get it covered for different subjects.
If you cover overlapping topics at the earliest then it will give you ample time to cover other important topics but while you are covering overlapping topics, make sure that you do them perfectly with all your concentration and attention since these topics are also very important.
While you are preparing for competitive exams, it is imperative that you stay from any sort of negativity or negative thoughts. There are chances that people around can provoke negative thoughts in your mind or might cause distractions.
In such situations, when negative thoughts arise in your mind or there is negativity around you, believe in yourself and have faith that the hard work that you’re doing during these tough days is certainly going to pay off.
For a student during the preparation period, it is essential to concentrate on quality preparation. Instead of spending countless hours on non-quality preparation, spend 8-12 hours every day with quality preparation. Also, try to keep a calm and positive mind as it will help you ace the competitive exams.
You should also give mock exams to check your preparation levels. Taking mock exams on a regular basis not only helps you to identify your weaknesses but also assess your preparation level. You should follow the pattern of competitive exams, prepare yourself accordingly, and once you feel like your preparation is good enough, you appear regularly in mock tests.
These mock tests will not only assess your general preparation but also help you identify your weak and strong subjects and also the subjects in which your preparation is not up to par.
