But eventually, sitting for competitive entrance exams is, more often than not, a regular feature in any students life.

It is important study hard and spend few hours daily on preparation but an hour or a half in your daily timetable demands to be just for yourself. Exercise in this time to keep your mind, body and soul fit. Breathing exercises should be included in this regime in order to relieve the stress and be ready for intellectual challenges. Food is also a very important aspect that needs to be taken care of when preparing for entrance examinations. Stay away from fried, fatty and high sugar foods and eat more fresh fruits and vegetables.

Special Tips for Students

Below mentioned are some important tips when deciding what chapter to study on any given day:

* If you have enough time for the exam, pick a chapter you are weak in and one that is important from the exam standpoint.
* Or if you do not have enough time, pick a chapter that you are comfortable, have not practiced enough and that is an important chapter.
* Any day give priority to important chapters if you have not revised them or not practiced enough questions on them.
* If exams are just approaching, leave out any new chapters because it will create a lot of stress and anyway you cannot master it enough for the exam.
* Keep in mind important milestones coming up, like mock tests or school exams, festivals or family functions.
