It’s not like you are totally unaware about studying for exams. In fact, you have been doing it right all your life, that’s exactly why you’ve landed up here, right? But, what gets you a little worried for preparing for your very first semester exam in engineering is that all subjects, in a way, are new to you. Oh yeah, and haven’t we heard about KTs? Scary much?
But, don’t you worry for here’re some tips for you to clear your semesters:
- Analyse your syllabus: The best part about our (Mumbai) University is that you can estimate what questions can be asked and from where. You can easily gauge from past question papers, the number of questions / weightage of every chapter. On this basis, you can figure out the time that you want to give to every chapter.
- Make a schedule: Making a schedule is a must. Not only will that give you direction, but, will also make you understand your position in terms of your preparations and will bring you back on track, in case you procrastinate. This is what every other blog tells you. What it doesn’t tell you is ‘how’ to make a schedule.
- If you have ample time in your hands, then you must start with the most difficult topic carrying the maximum weightage. Get thorough with it. This will give you enough confidence and will keep you motivated.
- Start with the last paper in your exam schedule and then schedule the second last, so on and so forth. This will give you maximum time for every paper (subject).
- Also include time for revision and solving QPS. This is the most important strategy. Just knowing the answer right is not enough for our University boards, presenting it appropriately is a must. So, solve QPs and check with solutions.
- Also include your free time in the schedule. Most of the times, we skip on this as we do not give it due importance. But, it’s important to include breaks and free days in your schedule. One cannot study for 6 or 8 hours at a stretch. Make a schedule for 2-3 hours instead. For example, 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon-LUNCH BREAK-1:00 p.m. to 4:00
