i would not say it as tips. as i believe that there is no substitute for hard work. first thing is see to that nothing from around you affects your mind (family activities). keep you mind fresh and clear. this helps your mind absorb better and faster. also try to avoid nervousness as they don't allow you to study well. might be after a bath or face wash sit on a table and spend 15-30 min slowly planning what you need to do (what all to study) and what is the resource (time) available to you. write them down in a paper. so you know what is available and what is to be reached. plan how you can solve this problem/puzzle/riddle - say whatever way you like. have 20% time as buffer. stick with your plan. that is very hard. so you will be entering your buffer time. see to that you don't take much of your buffer. you should be able to do it now. all the best for your exams. do well.

The best way to study--or to learn in general--is to find a study method that allows you to actively learn. Rote memorization techniques will sometimes be useful for list-learning and cramming techniques, but the information you memorize will disappear after the test. You should look at the material and begin to formulate your own questions...quiz yourself. The key is to create your own questions, because you increase the likelihood of being able to refer to the topic that you were studying. You are more likely to remember something you thought--despite the fact it is about something else--than just drilling yourself over and over with notecards.
