You need to be very serious about the preparation and separately set time slots to study for the same. Keep at least 4 to 5 hours of daily preparation. Divide the time slot into 3 parts for the 3 subjects- General Aptitude, Engineering Mathematics and Mining Engineering. Also keep separate time for chilling out and relaxing. Do not let studies become a burden and prepare smoothly.
This is very important point to consider. Do not take the exam lightly. Get yourself known to the syllabus properly and also the question pattern. Regularly follow the previous years’ papers. Mark the zones of study which are targeted more. Also, practice regularly from the previous years’ papers to get an overview of where you are, how much is yet needed to be improvised upon, etc.
Do not prepare aimlessly without a syllabus. Do be well aware of the syllabus and also the question pattern. This will help you figure out which areas of study are specifically targeted every year. Make sure that you cover all the topics given in the syllabus and nothing is omitted.

Keep proper time for the preparation so that it does not feel like a burden later on.
Practice makes perfect and so is the case here. Do revise the topics and the concepts as many times you could. Remember every topic should be crystal clear to you and you should not be confused or have second thoughts about any topic or subject. So, revision is very necessary.
