As exams are approaching, I thought of writing this article which may help you to give your best shot in the exams.
How to prepare your study plan?
First of all, everyone will have their own peak hours i.e. some enjoy reading in the nights and some in the early mornings. So identify your peak hours. Then, start reading the subjects you feel difficult during your peak hours and easier subjects during remaining time. It will certainly help you because your mind will be very active during your peak hours so its receiving power will be increased.
The way to develop self- confidence is to do the thing you fear and get a record of successful experience behind you.- William Jennings Bryan
Now plan your timings accordingly, so that each subject is covered everyday and each topic studied during the week should be reviewed at the weekend. After such review prepare a summary of topics reviewed. This summary will help you for a quick revision at last. Allow some time for other activities.

4. Manage time efficiently during each session
