    How can candidates plan their Daily schedule?

    The news for postponement of JEE Main was a cloud burst for candidates preparing for the exam and created unrest in their preparation hampering their pace of preparation. Most of the candidates who were preparing for the board exams simultaneously found themselves under pressure to cope up with the situation. Although the delay can be frustrating, it has given extra gap for the preparation to the candidate and they must utilise this time to enhance their preparation. The following guidelines can help them in scoring a better result if they follow it on a daily basis

    • Distribute the topics in small chunks and prepare a daily target and finish it the same day.
    • Dedicate time for revision in the morning or evening, to sum up, the topics.
    • As all major exams are postponed, students have more time in the pocket to assess their performance giving mock tests.
    • Take ample of rest and distribute time in the slot of 3 hours synchronised with the actual timing of the exam that will help the brain getting habitual with exam timing.
    • Topics in physics and chemistry that overlap like thermodynamics must be covered simultaneously.
