Preparing for the GRE!
Below are some exam preparation tips that may be useful for your preparation and approach:
1. Confidence and Self-belief:
First and foremost, have the confidence in yourself and belief in your own ability that you can clear the exam. A strong belief and conviction can help achieve everything.
2. Knowledge and Hard Work:
Knowledge is necessary to clear any competitive exam. You should have good knowledge about the fundamentals and concepts of the subject. For gaining knowledge, a lot of hard work and preparation is necessary. Knowledge cannot be gained overnight. Conceptual knowledge can be perfected by reading and understanding the concepts and then practicing questions based on these concepts. So make a plan, schedule your activities of study and act accordingly.
3. Solving sample papers and past question papers:
This is the most important. Solving sample papers and past question papers will give an idea about the type of questions asked in the entrance exam and also give a lot of practice to you. This will also help you in the actual exam.
While practicing and also during the exam, you must always pay attention to your speed i.e. how fast and accurately your can solve the questions. It is advisable not to spend too much time on a single question. If you are not able to solve a question in a particular time limit,you should leave the question and move ahead.
4. Time Management:
Firstly, prepare a timetable for studying, and make sure that you are following the time table ritually. The timetable must be prepared for the period up to the exam and then broken up into monthly, weekly and daily schedules.
Keep a record of what and how much you have studied and review your performance regularly.
Initially, you should study for 3 to 4 hours a day for the competitive exam. Later when the exam draws near, around 6 to 8 hours can be put in.
5. Sharpness of mind:
Sharpness of mind is needed for competitive exams. A sharp mind gives conceptual understanding, ability to think out difficult or tricky questions and speedy response to the questions. Sharpness of mind can be achieved by regular practice and also by doing brain exercises such as puzzles, crosswords, chess and sudoku.
Hope these tips will be useful for you for the exams.
