It has become almost an annoying saying that where there’s a will, there is a way. But you have no idea how significant it just is. Many have prepared for such exams, and they have been through times where they feel tired and exhausted. They think it would be easier to give up. But those who cross this hurdle have always claimed that it was the will that kept them going, the sheer resilience to work hard. Thus, it is imperative to be clear in your mind about the field you want to pursue and make your career in it. 

Discipline is the second step. Nothing is gained in the world without discipline. Again, those who have done it before know it. Setting a timetable to complete all the tasks is an important step. It would help you pen down the day-to-day tasks that need to be completed. Following this would be setting up goals that should be short-term and long-term. Long term goal should be to clear the exam that you are preparing for. Short-term goals would include something like completing a module by the end of the month. Finishing your daily tasks and short terms goals would not only help you to keep a tab on your progress, but the mere sense of completion would give you a morale boost to persevere even harder. As the proverbial saying goes, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy! Hence while making time table, do not forget to add time for recreation as well!

There are some DONT’s of studying to avoid stress and exhaustion. Try to set achievable targets. In the initial stages of enthusiasm, one might be able to complete those tasks. But as time goes on and the excitement starts to fade away, so does the working rate, and the work being done fades away. It is imperative to work not for 14 hours a day but to work for 14 days. Consistency is the key, not a sudden burst of enthusiasm that lasts a week. Second, do not study for long hours at stretches. It is imperative to take a break. Efficiency is inversely proportionate to longer hours of studying. 

Fourth, don’t be embarrassed and be calm. Rome was not built in a day, but they laid bricks every day. It might so happen that the results you were hoping for would not come at the early stages. At times like these, you must not be disheartened or discouraged but keep persevering. Further, it must give you an insight into what is going wrong and correct those mistakes. A remedy to not getting discouraged would be to meditate daily. It will help you remain in the right mindset throughout the preparation and help get riddance of all the stress.
