All the students starting the preparation for any competitive examination have same goal with same intensity in their minds. There is hardly any difference in the caliber of most of the students; It is style of preparation that makes them stand at different positions after the exams.
One should be confident about his abilities throughout the year. As already mentioned, hardly anyone is superior in the race, it is the focus of attention and devotion that plays the key role, any remarks on a candidates ability from a second person cannot represent the abilities of that candidate.
If possible dont run astray to your schedule and be in coherence with your coaching. Being regular always pays off as the topic just covered in coaching is fresh in your mind and you can do that topic best at that stage. Jumping to other topics at that time will consume more time on your part and will also linger the desired results. Topics delayed from schedule always demands more time than usual.
Mentioning ˜HARD WORK IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS though this may look childish to the students but hard work is always a substitute to intelligence and sharpness and even the most intelligent student may fall prey if they avoid hard work.˜Honesty and hard work are the principle backing of anybodys success. These are all in the basics probably every one of us knows but sticking to them is where we differ.
Finally dont run for too much material and work honestly on what you get easily. I am sure and confident that if you understand and follow these points properly, no one can stop you from being a success.
