“Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort makes all the difference” Only learn that much you can revise & later you can remember in the exam. Learning rare means wasting many hours in doing that 5% which may or may not come in the exam. While giving time to rare things, what you miss is your precious time for conceptual & frequently asked topics. TAKE ONLY THAT MUCH RESPONSIBILITY WHICH YOU CAN HANDLE.
  • Follow the idea of Minimal Studies by focusing on preparing the important & high-yielding topics which are actually expected in the exam.
Even if you get a question from the rare/ less important topic, you can easily skip it if you don’t know it, as attempting such a question will only fetch you negative marks. There always arises a situation when ‘Smart Work beats Hard Work’ Whenever you are worried about skipping some rare topics, relax and stay calm. If the exam comes out to be tough, it will not be difficult just for a single person. All the candidates will appear for the same exam, hence the difficulty level of some questions is not the rank decider. Go and give your best shot. Remember, life doesn’t give many chances. Make it count. You are a fighter. No matter what, you should never give up your dream.
