Your plan should incorporate your daily time-table in an executable way without becoming too much of a burden.The topics you find hard should be given more time, and make sure you a buffer time in between your preparations to be able to follow your study regime efficiently.
Do not refer to too many books: a trend that is seen in numerous students is their referring to too many books on the same topic. Understand that all books convey the same basic concept and only contribute towards making students confused during their time of revision. You should have only one or two go-to books to solve your last minute doubts and queries. Ask your seniors and teachers for the best and most effective books in the market.
Strengths & Weakness
Have a clear idea of your strengths and weaknesses: each and every student has a specific set of strengths and weaknesses. You must have a clear cut idea about your weaknesses to identify your strengths. The best exam strategy that experts suggest is to play to your strengths and sail through your weaker points. You should use your strengths to keep yourself motivated. A wise thing to do can be assessing yourself occasionally to understand and identify the areas that you need to work on.
Always read the questions with caution: the main thing what makes IIT questions difficult is the fact that examiners try to puzzle the students with confusing questions and options. We suggest that you read every question thoroughly to understand exactly what is asked of you and then mark the answers with optimum concentration. This is especially applicable for questions that seem like they have more than one correct answer in the options. Also do not waste your time on question that appears too difficult for you. It is not necessary that one should answer each question in the order given in the paper.
