TANCET 2016 Preparation Tips

  • Organize your time- It totally depends upon you what you choose- hard work or the smart one! If your goal is to control the time rather than time control over you then you have to do things differently. The best way to organize time for your studies is to devote quality time on studies rather than other activities.
  • Access your time- Here comes the false truth. Many candidates believe that they devote most of the time in studies or moreover they study all the time. And this is not at all related to truth. The actual way to determine the study time of a week is to keep track of everything you do i.e. from the time you wake up and go to bed. After this, do the addition of the total time spent on studies, eating, sleeping, and other activities. You will get to know where your time goes. If you find, your study time is less than the other activities then definitely you need a balanced schedule.
  • Set your priorities- To achieve your goals, you have to define the time allocation to the sections. The weaker section has to be given more time other than the strong ones. There are certain things that can help you such as reading newspapers, listening English news channels, teaching friends and etc. These will help you in getting excel to the sections of the exam.
  • Make a schedule- Yes. It is a good step after setting priorities. Create your schedule in a way that you refer it often. Make it in a way that fixed commitments cannot be changed such as seminars, revisions, and etc. Organize your peak study times as at that time you are more alert. Make sure, you add a column of refreshing brain cells such as exercises, meeting friends and spending time with family.
  • Use a calendar- If there are some months remaining for your exam then you can go for the monthly calendar. For this you can make up your schedules and do studies which include more revisions and mock tests. 
  • Plan some down time- you’re a human being not a machine. Even machines take rest so you have to do. Refreshed mind is very alert and can catch more easily. Have full sleep and it should not be compensated before the 2-3 days of exams.
  • Plan activities logically- None other than knows better than you about yourself. Change your schedule timings upon the mood on every week or two. This helps in refreshing mind and keeps you boosted.

2. Speed and Accuracy – Skills for solving questions effectively vary with the topics involved and sometimes varies even within. Every topic generally has kinds of questions which are solved with different tricks. There is only thing that can really help you out and it is practice. Keep solving mock tests to stay in touch with the older topics. Whenever you’re solving questions, try solving on your own. But don’t spend more than 10 minutes on any question in an attempt. Try solving it every day and at last go for help. This practice helps in thinking faster and at the time of actual exam. Each and every question is important as it fetches marks and that decides the rank. It is good if you keep a track of questions that are solved by the new tricks. Instant revision of such tricks make you remember what the trick was.

If you have set your 4 goals- Decide the desired rank or marks, Starting Point, End Point and Practice & Analysis, and then automatically you will achieve speed and accuracy as well.
