Crucial Tips to Crack Competitive Exam in First Attempt

Clearing any entrance exam in the first attempt is not an easy task but it is not impossible as well. In a Competitive exam, slow and steady does not win the race. It takes a lot of hard work to prepare for entrance exams but along with hard work, knowing some tips and tricks can only benefit your preparation. Cracking an entrance exam is not about hard work but about giving your best in the examination hall. The first step towards your preparation for any competitive examination is to understand the pre-requisites for the examination. You must go through the syllabus of the exam. Besides the syllabus, you must make a note of the weight age of various subjects so that you can plan your preparation accordingly. Below are some tips to crack the competitive exam:
Time Management
The first and the most important thing is to manage the time according to the syllabus. Without proper time management there is nothing you can do to clear the exam. You should make the list of important topics and complete them first.

Tips to Crack Competitive Exam in First Attempt

Create a study plan
Students usually spend more time in planning than actually executing those plans. Planning is art of the possible. So, create a plan which can be successfully executed. Give more time to topics which you find difficult to complete and keep a buffer so that you can complete some pending tasks. Only you can understand what is more important and quicker for you every day. Make a schedule of your day-to-day life and studies and stick to the schedule.
Students have a habit of referring innumerable books for each subject even though most of them convey the same thing. Reading too many books would lead to confusion during time of revision and most of your doubts would remain unresolved. So study from a single book of a particular subject so that you will not get confused by referring many books for a particular subject.

Practice previous years papers
Practicing previous year question papers should be left for the last couple of months before an exam. These are actual questions which have appeared in the previous examinations and you should time yourself while answering them so that you can compare your scores. Also, try to attempt the test papers in the same time slot as your final exam.
Create shortcuts
Every student has shortcuts which they use to prepare for entrance exams. Create shortcuts for remembering formulas or memorizing charts. This will help you to save your time. There are some standard shortcuts which you can tap into but creating your own wouldn’t harm either.
There is no substitute for practice. Do practice as hard as you can because the more you practice the more you will improve.
