Ques. Share your Strategy and how did you overcome the weak areas, what special efforts did you put in?

Ans. Practice makes perfect so kindly give more effort in this area and give more time as compared to others. Make self-notes always when you practice and always visualise in your mind because visualisation power is more than hearing power. Try to link it with practical things so it can help you in reminding those things. If you have facilities to do practical then you have to do practicals as this can also help you to understand difficult topics.
