Essentials Of College Exams

The college examination requires two things: the syllabus and the previous year's question papers. You should be well-versed in your syllabus; this makes you more confident, saves time, and makes you crystal clear about what to learn and what to leave.

Coming to the previous year question papers, these are important in the sense that they will guide you, give you a glimpse into the kind of questions that will be coming in your exams. A previous year question paper is required at the last stage, just go through it and then pick one question paper, solve it, and analyze it. This will help you manage your time, improve your answer-writing skills, and keep your brain sharp for those 3 hours.

Read, Write & Learn

Read, Write and Learn

The most important thing, or the basic step, is to read, write, and learn. At this moment, when I say this, it means the first step is to read. Read from whatever sources you are getting, the books recommended by your professors, and the notes they are providing you with. Mark all the important points when you are reading it for the first time.

The second step is to write. Write and note down all the marked points in a crisp and explicit manner.

Here comes the final step, i.e., to learn. The crisp captions that you have written just learn them. And yeah, you are good to go.


planner, schedule, time table, study tips, guide

‌When we talk about the schedule, time table or planner it makes us feel like it's a hectic work. So let me draft one for you.

From Monday to Friday, take 1 topic of any unit from a subject and finish it with the reading and writing part. On Saturday day you just need to get a glimpse of whatever you have done from Monday to Friday from your notes copy.  This is way easy when you start following and it hardly takes 2 hours a day to complete, leaving you with ample amount of time to enjoy college life.

Sunday is a day for enjoyment so take it as a bare day. Address this day with whatever pleases you, whether it be a movie night, cooking, playing guitar, or just relaxing with your favorite playlist.

Keeping up with this time table will surely make your study process exciting and entertaining. This line is needed - 'whenever you are studying please focus there and whenever you are luxuriating focus here.'
