Do not lose focus on conceptual understanding: It has been observed that students prefer method-based approach rather than applying a conceptual understanding over the questions. So, it is always advised to apply concepts in each and every question that you solve.
Do not ignore the basics Many students have a habit of preparing from big reference books and study materials rather than NCERT book. More than 70 per cent of the questions are either from NCERT or are an extended version of its learnings. So, you must primarily stick with NCERT course books and head towards reference books only upon its completion.
Be confident and don’t doubt yourself: This possibly is the biggest blunder that students make during the preparation. Giving room to doubts directly increases hesitation and leads to lack of confidence. Trust yourself and your abilities. Develop a positive mind-set.
Never skip the online tests
Taking online mock tests and solving previous year question papers is the smartest way to prepare for the exam as you get to know the exact format of the questions asked in the exam.
