Coaching institute is a guiding path in your preparation journey and also helps to channelize your thoughts and helps you clear your concepts rather than just rote learning.

Since you are preparing for various engineering entrance exams you will be required to put in six to eight hours of study time.

So, it is important that you practice it and practice it well. Time management is also very important for your day-to-day study schedule. The key to managing your time efficiently is making a time-table and adhering to it.
  1. Stay positive:This will steer you clear of unnecessary confusion and panic. Being confident and optimistic can create miracles and keep negative thoughts at bay. It also helps in your performance in the exam.
  1. Seek guidance: It is not possible to understand the syllabus by your own, at least not at the time of preparation. Sooner or later you will run into a concept which will create doubts. In a situation like this, it is best you seek guidance from an instructor or a teacher. It is necessary that you clear your doubts at regular intervals and don’t prolong things for long.
