There should be proper time for study, food and sleep.

5. Makes important & short Notes and revise them regularly
During studying basic texts books of previous classes or NCERT textbooks, students should make or prepare shorts and understandable notes of physics, chemistry, and Maths, which will be asked in entrance exam. Make easy notes by making Flow Charts, Diagrams, Tables and Posters etc. and stick them wherever possible and review them at least two times a day before sleeping.
There should be fixed revision slot of 1-3 hours in your time-table. Revision is a continuous process.

Whenever you are solving a mock test, try to analyze the questions or topics you are facing problems with and the areas you are quick to solve. Develop good planning while solving the practice papers. 50% of the questions in the paper have a low difficulty level, so solve them first. Never solve the paper in a row and avoid the questions you face problems or difficulty.
