Turning off the computer is a great start. Take it a little bit at a time and don't stay up all night cramming because then you'll just blank out when the time of the test comes. Don't get distracted! Keep the computer, the television, your music, and anything else that's getting in the way off. Read and take notes. Make sure you'll actually retaining the information and not letting it wash right over you. Good luck!

It's a bit difficult to cram. You need to focus 100% of your attention to your subjects. You need to classify easy subjects and difficult subjects. Then, try to start with the difficult ones. It's better to study early morning. Try to sleep and be sure to wake up around 2:30-3am. Your mind is already fresh so you'll remember and understand your lessons much better. Try to take down some notes so that you'll have your summary. I hope this will help.

For me last minute studying isn't a new topic cause it did this most of my college life. It works for me just as long as you stay focus on studying and i hope you listened to every lecture of your instructor or teacher cause that when you learn. Additional advice is to have a good nights rest. Learning mostly happens when you sleep cause thats the time the brain processes all the things you've heard or did.

Believe me you don't want to study in last minute... last exam I'm studying additional math in a day before exam and an hour before the exam. .my head is like gonna blow into pieces and the result I get is 10/100 and I'm like wtf...... that is the result of the last minute of my studying so my advice study before a week or month before the exam or the result gonna be pretty bad.

Hi, it is not advisable to go for last minute study. Since I was young, my mother always emphasize to me..no last minute study or else you will get into trouble. Till now, I still can remember her words so well and i will adapt this system for my son in future. Since your time is pretty limited, you have to study whatever is necessary and set a proper timetable for your study time. Of course, you need to have a good rest ,so that you can concentrate on your study. Do get some snacks and drink to accompany you while you study late.

Hey Prince, All I can tell you to do is stay calm and just try to one whole chapter continuously like the way you read a novel. And once you completed the chapter make a list of points that you remember and take some time to go through the chapter to see what you left out and go through it... Though this technique won't help you score high marks this will definitely give you some idea about the subject so that you can make an attempt to answer almost all the questions

Yes one week is sufficient because I know after every paper 2 to 3 days holiday so you can revision on that day. But you want to proper study with in seven then pick up last 5 years paper and sort out the question which asking again and again and read answer of that question. But at the time of reading make point and write in on paper if you remembered points then you can explain it. I completed my final year study like this only in 10 days all subjects like JAVA, Oracle, PTM etc. but I like theory parts so I was read theory parts with points and got more score above 60. On thing is also you remembered whenever you are in free time or in the morning doing brush, bathing etc. then remind that point in your mind. Best of luck for exam

The last thing you need to do is cram for last minute studying. Late night studying will do you no good. Getting rest is the best thing you can do. For the brain doesn't work or accommodate packing so much information. It will only go into your short term memory and test time you will end up forgetting everything. Thats just the nerves and stress of test taking. I would suggest to set a schedule to study a few hours a day until its time for the test. Even one to one and a half hours would do. But last minute studying you will forget everything. Trust me, i've tried and learned from my mistakes. Good luck with everything!

Last minute studying is so stressful. Continue studying from your notes and continue to re-read the chapters is how I always did my studying. Relax and take a few breaks, but I would suggest not to be online and continue studying so that you do not feel so much pressure at the last minute. Best of luck and hope you do well!

hey dont go for completing ur syllabus....cover less topic bt prepare fully whatever u learn ...if u r covering half portion be sure that that u r solid in that PORTION secondly start you study wid easy topics AND ALSO GO FOR THE BLUE PRINT OF UR SYLLABUS THAT HOE MUCH MARKS IS ALLOTED TO EACH CHAPTER AND START WID THE CHAPTER HAVING HIGHEST WEIGHTAGE OF MARKS AND EASY and one day before ur exam look all the question of previous 10 years paper and learn their answer because almost 70 percent question are similar... n dont leave any answer during exam try to cover each n every answer...write anything related toh the topic if u dont knoe the answer THE BEST WAY TO LEARN IS TO MAKE REAL WORLD IMAGINATION OF ALL THE CONCEPT ! TRY TO CORRELATE THE REAL ORLD WITH THAT CONCEPT

Last minute preparation is little dangerous but don't worry as you still have a week. The best thing you can do at this moment is refer class notes and understand it well as refering text books really requires time. If you can't understand from notes, then switch for the text book for the particular portion. After reading once, make sure you make short and brief revision as you won't be remembering in exam if you don't do it. It is always better you complete 100% in one than cover 50% in two topics or chapter. I mean always make sure that you are 100% clear about what you studied. Learning 50% in one chapter or topic and 50% from another chapter or topic will give you confusions. All the best!
