Eat & Sleep Well

Having a good diet is as much essential as studying. Your brain needs regular energy and rest to work and function efficiently. You must have at least 8 hours of proper sleep to relax your brain. A regular hobby like running, singing etc. anything that you like, will help your brain refresh and get ready to absorb another few hours of studying. Monotony gets in the way of the brain absorbing new concepts and lessons, so it's necessary to keep giving it breaks at regular intervals.

It is always better to start early and revise towards the end to come through with flying colours!!
