With few days left for CET, many of you may be left with the question 'How do I get more done in less time? If this question has struck your head, then you are on the right track. However, what you do after this is what will determine your success with your attempt at being really productive.
The simple and the most effective way is to just focus on one thing. Doing one thing at a time keeps your brain completely focused on what you are doing at that moment as opposed to focusing on many things at a time and splitting the resources available.
Here are the few tips to the students to confidently face the Karnataka CET exams.
CET is your target:
With the volume of content, you have to cover, you need to dedicate an equivalent amount of time. Something that's impossible if you do not cut down TV/ Social media/ meeting friends and other distractions.
Plan your Preparation:
Planning is the most important thing you should do before start preparing. Make a time-table suitable as per your daily routine. Divide your time equally for all the subjects. Once you have prepared a timetable to try to follow it wisely. Gather all the details about the syllabus and start preparing accordingly. Don't forget to include the entire syllabus in your preparations.
Work in your speed:
Just split time equally among all your subjects but do not micromanage with respect to how much you have to cover in a certain time. Just set a time to study. Start and focus.
Take short breaks:
Take short intervals but do not engage in any distractions. Take a walk, meditate, drink water or have a small snack. And do not demotivate yourself.
Most importantly, practice tests tell candidates which topics they have not mastered and encourage them to focus future learning on weak areas.
Get adequate sleep:
Set a time for sleep and create a routine. You can't study the next day if you are worn out from yesterday's preparation. And good sleep is very important for your brain to function adequately.
Make up your mind:
You must believe that you deserve a good score and that doing all of the above is going to help you. Without this nothing you ever try is going to be much effective.
