Make a Time Table and adhere to it
In this lockdown times, don’t let procrastination get the better of you. Make a schedule for the upcoming week which should include your preparation for different sections, reading a good newspaper amongst other things. Ensure that this schedule is as specific as possible. Set reminders on your phone or you can put a planner on your wall at such a place, where you can look at it on a regular basis. Consider the topics which need improvement and put more weightage on them while creating the schedule. You can also consider the below factors while making the schedule:
- Make a weekly timeline on what topics do you want to study. Since most of the time you would be in your home, try to break the day in 3/4 slots, assign topics to those slots and stick to your timeline.
- Keep ticking each topic you complete. This will act as a good motivator and looking at your progress you will be more motivated to continue with your schedule.
- Identify your weak areas and put special efforts to improve upon them.
- Follow the current affairs on a daily basis. Revise the current affairs of past months as well.
- Keep making your own notes irrespective of the fact whether it pertains to Quant, Reasoning, English or General Awareness. These notes will be very helpful just before the exam when you would like to do a quick revision. While making notes, use your own words and don’t simply copy-paste from the source.
- Revise Static GK as well.
- Improve your word power by reading the daily editorial analysis which is published on a regular basis.
- Have a look at the previous years’ analysis of the exam you are aiming at and solve previous year question papers.
- Keep taking mock tests and spend some time analyzing it. Track your All-India-Rank and see how have you been performing vis-a-vis the toppers.
- Take sectional tests in between your breaks. This will introduce you to new questions and will also help you boost your confidence in that section.
