There are some learnings that I want to share with all the students who are preparing for any competitive exam, be it CA/CS/CWA/CSE. There is a certain style of working, which you must implement to make an impact on the examination paper:
1. Start practice answer writing as soon as possible
"Perfection is myth", do not wait for some day that you will complete all chapters and you will expert on the subject and then you will write answers. That day will never come when you feel perfect so start writing answer as soon as you complete one chapter. Start solving each and every question in such a way that you will be writing the same in exam hall.
2. Create Exam Hall atmosphere
At least 3 months before the exam, do solve one whole question paper daily with one sitting of 3 hours. You can solve 2 or 3 papers in one day, if you could, but at least solve one question paper on daily basis and try to write answer in the same time when actual exam will be held. cover all mocks and previous 10 years question paper.
3. Make Note as short as possible
Do not make notes that every other can understand. Prepare your notes in such a way that you can revise whole subject in 6-8 hours.
4. Life is more than an Exam Result
Do not take much stress, as stated in 47th verse of the second chapter of Bhagavad Gita, "You have the right to work only but never to its result. Let not the the results of action be your motive, nor let your attachment be to in action".
You will get something if you are not getting the desired result. Life is much more than just an exam result. Give your 100 percent which is in your hand (i.e. Hard work/Smart work). Do not think those thing which you have no control.
