In the current world, targetting a goal and attaining it is not an easy task. Each year lakhs of aspirants come out, and this makes the world around us more competitive. In this article, let’s talk about how to monitor your performance in exam preparation. This is the era of “smart work” and not hard work. We might have come across this term several times, but have you tried to apply that in your study pattern? More often, people don’t prefer a change and constrain themselves to a comfort zone.
Let’s discuss here some elementary methods to ensure you are doing your best to accomplish your dream.
- Prefer to go with a well-defined study plan.
- Illustrate through pictures and mind-maps.
- Take our Daily Rank booster quiz and assess the weaker sections.
- Ensure adequate time-bound breaks in between.
We have a lot of mock tests and practice question papers for exams in all diverse fields. Taking tests and remaining in touch with the questions is the best way to asses where you stand. Say you are preparing for a Government/Banking exam. Initially, you must be thorough with the entire syllabus. From the very beginning learn each topic systematically. For example; if you are studying the Indian constitution take ample time to learn each part of it.
Also while studying, solve previous year question papers and don’t just mug up the question and answer. Try to study everything related to that question ie assume the questions that might be asked from a section and learn that too. Relate while studying a topic and this will help you memorize the concept.
Begin from Scratch
Make a plan that suits within the stipulated time and strictly follow it. The number of hours one could study effectively varies from person to person. So depending on whether you are a night owl or early bird work hard relentlessly until you achieve your aim.
Understand Your Exam
For each exam, understand the pattern and most importantly figure out what they look for in the candidates. Keep practicing questions and never lose touch of the most recent happenings ( being it current affairs or latest inventions in technology). In the Entri app, we have exam-wise mock tests and previous year question papers and classes held by experts in each domain. This would help you have an idea about the actual exam and also can utilize the lockdown in the best way possible.
Revision is Important
You cannot expect to remember all the topics unless you revise since the syllabus is very vast. It is important to review all your course so that you can answer the questions.
Strategies and Tips for Exam Revision
Start your preparation early each morning. Let your daily study routine begin with revising the last day’s topics. Ensure your brain is not tired. After revision, begin the topics assigned in your plan for that day. Once you are done with the day’s topic take some time to review the same in less than 20 minutes and do the same next morning. By doing so, your brain would have grasped a major part of it because you have already gone through the same topic thrice.
Make a note to review the same topic after one week, this time take the least time. By doing so, you can memorize the topic for a longer period.
Analyze your Work
After each mock test in the Entri app, you will be navigated to the “Analytics” page and here you can assess your performance in detail. This will help you :
- find out weak areas and prepare accordingly
- measures your progress
- provides data-driven insights to accelerate your exam preparation
Effective preparation of exam includes steps like beginning from the basics and then take mock tests. Never miss a single question that comes on the way, remember that each of them is important, and answering one question right will bring a huge difference in your rank. And yet another vital part of preparation is to Analyse your performance and improve on it. Working hard again and again on your already existing areas of expertise might not help you score better. The analysis helps you figure out which domain requires more focus. In order to monitor your preparation, knowing your strength and weakness in a competitive exam is indispensable and among the plethora of online study applications available in the market, choosing the best one is crucial. Check out our detailed Analytics page after each exam and that will help you figure out the sections demanding more time and hard work to score better.
Yet another best thing about the Entri app is the “Study Cards” wherein we provide you the capsule form of knowledge. It is basically a collection of study notes relevant to each topic. All these would help you figure out your potential and pave the way to move forward with determination.
Stay motivated throughout the whole process and have this strong desire to learn more each day.
