STEP 1 – Note down your goals.

STEP 2 – Divide your goals into smaller tasks.

STEP 3 – Assign a deadline for every task.

STEP 4 – Make a plan to execute the tasks.

STEP 5 – Start the execution of the plan.

Always keep track of your tasks (how many of them have you completed successfully and how much remains)

A few things that will help you in getting a better score are:

  • Take regular mock tests – it will help you finish the exam within the provided time.
  • Practice any questions as you can.
  • Start early preparation.
  • Focus on your weak as well as strong points, equally.
