2. Relying on Others

  • Candidates should remember that since they are going to appear in the NHPC JE Exam, they are responsible for the preparation as well. A lot of aspirants depends on external factors like a teacher, mentor, friends or online videos, etc. to help them motivate or understand certain topics. The candidates must know that there is no one responsible for their exam preparation. You can have guidance from others but the motivation to crack the exam must come from within and only then you will be able to prepare well for it.

3. Planning But Not Executing

  • Actions speak louder than words when it comes to exams. Simply thinking about and planning for preparation will yield no results. Those plans must be implemented.

6. Sticking on Topics

  • Some students devote the majority of their time to the first few topics they study, leaving less time for the remaining ones. Make an effort to stick to deadlines and finish your topics on time.

7. Improper Revision

  • The key to success, as we all know, is revision. Revising a topic at least twice ensures that it is permanently ingrained in your mind. If you forget a topic, revising it will rapidly remind you of it, allowing you to recall it readily during the examination.
