This is the most underrated thing that students tend to ignore when they start preparing for a big test like this one but it is always suggested to take a close look at the syllabus well before you begin to do the real solving and practising. Now if you ask why it gets so important, it is because you might get to know that they have made some updates in the syllabus from the last time and then you putting in all the effort to solve that topic just contributed nothing to your preparation.

Be positive

Now your mental health plays a key role in you performing well in any examination, so it gets quite important that you stay positive and motivated all this time while you are in the midst of your preparation also since it is not a matter of a few days, it is a long journey and hence it gets even more important that you should keep yourself motivated and have that confidence in you that no matter what, you are in for a win and you are not going to stop any which ways.

Now Revision is another important topic when talking about preparation so keep it to discuss further in detail and come to the first point that is taking a specific amount of time for a particular chapter. This needs to be noted that students tend to give too much time to a chapter when they are at the beginning of the preparation and end up panicking in the last when they have less or no time left, this is the last thing you want to do and hence start by making a time frame giving time for each chapter according to the content and difficulty. 

Know your Strengths and Weaknesses

If you know that you are good at some of the topics and can solve them in less time you can start by preparing and giving more time to the topics where you need more focus, same goes when you are solving the test paper, if you know that you know a few of the questions very well you can keep it for solving in the last but do not forget that you need to keep enough time for that as well so plan before you start solving and you will end up solving the whole question paper.
