Evaluate yourself consistently
Even though you are probably already appearing a lot of tests in your coaching institute or private tuitions, it is important that youfrequently evaluate your preparations with the help of several mock tests a week.
Here’s an excerpt from our last week’s article on How to balance between Boards and JEE Preparation:
“In order to make that possible, spend at least one hour to 90 minutes every day for solving these objective type questions. While doing so, ensure that you solve at least 20 questions from two minimum subjects. For example, if you solve 20 questions from Physics and Mathematics each on Monday, spend the next day solving 20+20 questions from, let’s say – Chemistry and Physics.”
In the same article, we mentioned how it is of the utmost importance that you regularly analyze your performance in these mock tests so as to find strong and weak points of your preparation.
“Spend another hour or so analyzing your performances on these mock tests. It’s important that you do this step very carefully because without properly analyzing your strength and weaknesses, you won’t be able to progress much in your preparations. The more you are familiar with your weaknesses and strengths, the better you will be able to streamline your preparations for the boards to eliminate those.”
