Important Points
As you are left with a limited time of hardly 18 days, prepare a strict study plan and give most of your everyday hours to studies only.

  • Such a timetable would help you complete the target on time. Start revising all the topics that you are done with. 
  • Making a time table inculcates a sense of discipline; the aspirant is bound to give a certain amount of time to a particular subject or topic. 
  • If you do not revise the topics that you studied months back, you end up remembering nothing at all. 
  • As you are now left with a limited period of time, you need to revise all the topics really well. 
  • Do not start with something that is completely new to you. 
  • Revise everything that you are good at and keep practicing it with revision.
  • Do remember that assessing your progress from time to time is a must during the last days of your preparation phase. 
  • Practicing with test series helps you ace the original tests/examinations. You can identify what topics you are good at and where you lack. 
That way, in the original examination, you will choose to attempt the very section first that you are very good, or say fast at.
