Previous years question papers play an important role as they help in gaining insight into the pattern and type of the questions being asked in the examination. After being thorough with the last five to seven years question papers , one can be confident enough to prepare organizingly and pass the exam with flying colours.
6) Stay healthy:
It is true that success is important but not at the cost of health . A degrading health can turn down any success to its death . Therefore it is important to take care of one's health while preparation . One should stay hydrated and take a proper 8 hours of sleep every day inorder to have a stronger memory and healthy body.
