They not only include what you should attempt but also what you can skip for later if it is taking too much of your time. You must have the ability to glance through the question and be able to skip it if it seems too lengthy.
In this article, we will be discussing the common mistake that an aspirant usually makes while preparing for it.
So, to make you play your cards right, we are providing you all with the list of a number of mistakes that you should be wary of while you buckle down for the upcoming banking exams.
1. Avoiding important news and believing you will do it all together at the end.
Do not leave the important news to be learned at the last moment. Having a pile of news at the end not only stress you but it can also make you forget what is to be learned and memorized.
2. Do not avoid giving a speed test on a regular basis.
Giving speed test on a regular basis keep a check on your speed and accuracy. It helps you analyze your performance in the correct way. It gives you real exam like experience that you face in your final exam.
3. Do not leave the topics for revision you think you are good at.
It is your biggest mistake if you leave those topics you think you are good in. It can really affect your speed and accuracy. Even if you are good at something, it requires daily practice to keep in touch with that subject/topic. Do not avoid anything thinking you will do it in the end.
4. Do not feel puzzled about what to start.
Many a time, 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.
5. Avoid adopting a number of strategies
Students very often ask different successful candidates about 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 and follow your own strategy to excel in the exam. This is the only way you can do good in your exam.
6. Lacking consistency in your preparations.
Many of you are quite a bit 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 times when you do not study at all for days. This will make you forget whatever you studied during the times when you were the most active and you will have to start all over again when you decide to do it again. So, try to keep your preparations consistent throughout so as to maintain that positive flow of studies.
7. Collecting and piling up a heap of useless study material.
Many students just keep on collecting the study material thinking it would be easy to learn from them. But all you need to prepare important notes of the topics and stop collectiong useless study material as it would do no good to you. Be very choosy while selecting the best study material for your goal.
8. stop wasting 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).
9. In a quandary, if to go for Banking Exams or SSC.
Students are often confused about what should they go for. Should they prepare for banking or SSC? First set a target for yourself and then make plans to start your preparation. This will keep you on a good track.
10. Directly applying tricks without having the basics of the topic grasped.
Try not to follow the tricks to solve various 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.
11. Do not wait for the prelims result, start preparing for the main.
Many students waste their precious time in waiting for the prelims result. If you are confident enough about your result you should start preparing for the main right after the prelims exam. This will give you enough time to prepare for the next phase.
12. Not having quality sleep.
A quality improves memory recall and the ability to concentrate. If you wouldn’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.
13. 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.”
14. 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.
Now you don’t have time to waste. Start preparing or you will be left behind in the race.
