Time Management Tips Are As Follows

Practice with Stopwatch on your side: For any aspiring Nabard candidate it is a must to keep a stopwatch by their side while preparing. Apart from the tenacity of the questions, what matters is that of the allotted time for solving those questions. One needs to practice so well in the paper so that he/she can answer most number of questions that too keeping the accuracy factor in mind. This also helps you to improve your time and boosts your confidence just before the examination.
Skip Questions that are troubling much:  if at any point it is felt by the candidate that a certain question is troubling them much, they should immediately move away from that particular question and try and solve other known ones. Rather than sticking to any particular question, it is advisable to move along.
Go through Practice sets and Mock Question Papers: Mock question papers and practice sets can help the candidates to prepare for the examination effectively. By solving these sets you could have an idea of how many questions you are solving on the given time and try to improve that by applying and innovating newer techniques for solving problems through constant practice.
Do not go for everything: You certainly didn’t want to get in trap of ‘getting everything’ under your belt. Thus, you should set a target for yourself while you are preparing for any paper and decide how many questions you are going to attempt with accuracy to be on top of anything. You should keep an eye on quality of your answers rather than the quantity as doing this you could also avoid negative markings which can take down your chances of getting through.

Eat Light – Start your day with a light breakfast like cereal and fruit. Avoid greasy food to spare yourself the lethargy and drowsiness that they induce. Eating light will make your body feel lighter, letting you focus better


Short Study Hours, Strong Focus – If you cannot study for long hours, it is much better to sit for short hours, but with dedication! Promise yourself you’ll study well for those two hours.
Take Regular Breaks – It’s always better to give yourself a break after every hour or two, than cramming everything nonstop. Give your mind time to soak it all in


Take Time Out for Yourself – Constant studying makes your mind bored and unresponsive. So take time out to pamper yourself and let yourself unwind. A calm body and mind are the most receptive
Unwind – When you are on a timeout, unwind with a fun, creative activity! Simple things like cooking, painting, or even a walk in the park are good ways to let your hair down. You could even rock out to your favorite music.


Exercise – Take regular walks, go for runs or go gymming! Any kind of physical workout is a good break, for both your body and mind.


Set Targets – Set achievable targets for yourself, like studying 4 comprehensive topics in an hour, or 7-8 small topics in an hour. This will boost your speed as your mind will not feel over taxed.


Learn and Revise on the Go – Get your hands on a good book for your  preparations. This will let you touch up whenever you have the free time, or just feel the need


Use Flashcards – This is another great tool that will let you revise anytime, anywhere and with ease! Make flashcards of important dates, event and keywords to keep your memory fresh.


Get Ample Sleep – I cannot stress the importance of sleeping enough! Make sure you are well rested so that your body doesn’t decide to rest at a time you need it the most!


Simple things like these will let you prep better for the exam! Some other simple things you should note is making sure you have your id and admit card, and carrying some snack and water to the exam venue.


Last Minute Tips


Don’t Overburden Yourself: It is important not to overburden yourself while preparing hard for the examination. There should be set hours for study for the candidates and there should be equal share of light hearted entertainment and physical outings necessary along with the studies. A healthy mind and body can become very important for your success and thus the candidates need to make their routine perfectly in tandem with the situation.

Keep a stopwatch by your side: If you are still wondering how you would manage your time and solve all the 150 questions that you need to solve in the four hour time period, the only option you are left with is to keep a stopwatch by your side and practice regularly.


Spot your weak areas: It is very easy to go along well with your strong areas, but it is the best time to work on your weaker areas and give it your best shot. Try and point out all the major areas you are stumbling and try to remove the blockings through constant practice and able guidance.


Device your own methods and techniques: This is one such practice which allows the candidates to solve questions in innumerably less time and boost confidence in the candidates. They could take suggestions from the coaching classes or take inputs from the mock question papers or guidebooks from which they prepare. Finding a pattern for any question could turn out to be gold for the candidates.


Make your own boundaries: You cannot possibly answer each and every question correctly in the given time and thus you need to limit your lines. This could help the candidates immensely in the time of giving the examination and make it possible for them to make a count on their chances for getting through.


Sharpen your weapons: You need to make sure you keep your admit cards, necessary stationary equipment ready for the examination and get ready to go for the examination.


Prepare yourself mentally: The examinations are mental game and you need to be psychologically strong in order to succeed in any examination. You need to feel assured of yourself and believe in yourself that whatever preparations you have gone through could sail you through to the next round. This confidence alone could ease your way while going for the examination.

Keep your eyes open for anything new: A good listener and observer can always benefit from whatever is around them. The candidates need to be aware of the ongoing events in their surroundings and be active mentally and physically to stay fit. They should look for new words, sentence formation structures and passages that appear in newspapers, magazines and journals which could help them in the English Language paper. Along with this they should go through internet surfing to find out resources and online material available for helping them in the examinations.
