Now, most of you would be wondering if what could be the best way to grab this opportunity without letting it slip through your fingers. Students, along with focusing on the best approach towards acing this competitive examination, one should also focus on how she has to avoid erring during her preparation phase. In this article, we will be discussing the important dos and don’ts for SBI PO 2019 Preparation. With the help of these dos and don’ts, you will be able to play your cards right from the beginning of your preparations to crack this year’s SBI PO Exam.
- Reading news every single day.
Read the news on a daily basis so that you do not end up lying under a pile of news of past 3-4 months a few days before the examination. This not only stresses you out but also makes you forget most of the important news.
- Giving speed tests regularly.
Giving speed tests on a regular basis helps you attempt the tests in a minimum time with maximum accuracy. You also come across various strengths of yours that you may later make use of while attempting the real examination.
- Analysing your speed tests.
Only giving the speed tests is not enough, you also need to analyze your performance and work on the points where you lag. If you’re not equipped with the necessary exam-taking skills, you won’t certainly get the grades you’re hoping for.
- Preparing for the mains exam right from the beginning.
If you do not prepare for mains examination from the very beginning, you will not be able to wind it up within the limited period of time that you get after qualifying for the mains examination.
- Having the basics of all the topic grasped.
Try not to follow the tricks to solve different questions until you have a good knowledge of their basics. You might be able to solve that question at that very time but may lose to attempt it in the real examination if it’s asked in a more twisted manner than usual.
- Having quality sleep.
A quality sleep improves memory recall and the ability to concentrate. If you don’t sleep properly, you likely won’t remember much of what you studied anyway. So, to make the best use of your knowledge, you should try to get at least 8 hours of sleep every day.
- Knowing what to start with.
Many times, students are confused regarding what topic they should start off their preparations with. You should always start with the topics you are already good at because that gives you confidence and motivates you to move further with a positive attitude.
- Ignoring working on the topics that you think you are good at.
You should always try to make the best use of your strengths while attempting an examination and that can only be possible when you practice them hard. Ignoring them will only make you forget the basics and lessen the chances of you attempting them as efficiently as you could, had you practised them well.
- Listening and trying to follow hundreds of strategies.
Students very often ask different successful candidates of their strategies and try to follow the same that only makes it more chaotic for them to figure out what strategy to follow exactly. So, try to make your own strategy as per your convenience and follow that one strategy throughout your preparation phase. This will definitely help you come off with flying colours.
- Lacking consistency in your preparations.
Many of you are very enthusiastic when you begin your preparations and that enthusiasm fades away with time. There are times when you are highly active and travail all day and night, and then, there are also times when you do not study at all for days. Bear it in mind that this will make you forget what you studied during the times when you were the most active and you will have to start it all over again. So, try to keep your preparations consistent throughout so you can maintain that positive flow.
- Collecting and piling up a stack of useless study material.
There are students who have a habit of collecting different study material from different sources and they end up getting confused and stressing themselves out with what to study and what not to. Try collecting only the study materials that are useful and up-to-date as per the new pattern of examination.
- Wasting too much of time surfing through social media.
Students often tend to surf through social media all day long wasting a lot of their precious time that they could have contributed to their studies. So, be wary of spending too much of time on social media and put the time that you spend while using them to some positive use (like following Adda247 pages on different social media platforms).
- Not revising the topics on a regular basis.
Revise all the topics that you need to be tremendous at. Sort the important topics into a checklist and settle on how each and every point is to be revised before appearing for the real examination, so that, during the examination, you are not like, “Gee! I was so good at this topic. I could have done better had I revised it well.”
- Waiting for the official notification to start off your preparations.
If you do not start off your preparations right away, you will be running short of time to work on your weaknesses after the release of the notification, because that will be the point when most of the time is to be given to practice and the rest is to be dedicated to revision.
