SSC Exams 2020: Do's & Don'ts of Exam Preparation

Success depends on the things you do during the process of the journey. So you have to follow these do's and don'ts while preparing for SSC Exams:

Parameters Do's Don'ts
Study Plan Create a proper study plan and stick to it. Don't study in an unstructured way

Perseverance is important. Just remember the ocean is made out of drops. So study regularly and persistently, it will be fruitful in the long run

Don't put the things for tomorrow. 

Divide & Rule Give time to each and every subject on a daily basis, this will give you a commanding position in every subject.

Studying a single subject might slow down your learning process. Also, it adds to boredom.

Study Notes Make your own study notes, this will help you in better retention. Don't rely on someone else's study notes, make one for yourself.
Study Material Keep the booklist limited. Do not refer more than 2 books for a subject. It will add to the clutter.
Be Experimental Make your study innovative and interesting with different study techniques, e.g. flashcards, flowcharts etc. Don't follow others blindly
Concepts Learn Basics first, then move to short tricks. Make your own short tricks.

Don't rush for Short-tricks without knowing the concepts well.

Don't mug up the questions. A slight tweak in the question can prove to be disadvantageous.

Regular Revision Only studying is not enough. Revising the notes at regular intervals will help you perform better in the exams

Do not leave things to be revised later.

Revision should follow a cycle. Revise the content on the same day, after 3 days, after 7 days, after a month. 

Summarize For the tougher chapters rely on the synopsis of the chapter which will prove to be beneficial for engaging in various revision sessions Do not Read everything, again and again as it is time taking and brings less output. Instead, make points.
Short-Breaks Keep giving yourself small breaks. Don't study continuously without breaks. Eventually, you won't be able to remember a thing in that case
 Practice Start with the sectional test then move forward to Practising mock tests. Don't indulge in practice mocks without gaining enough knowledge. It will dampen your confidence.
Fitness Do Yoga/ Freehands/ Bodyweight workouts/ Jogging, this will help you in focusing while studying. Do not stress your eyes by engaging in movies or social media, or virtual gaming.
