What is your study time table in 12 standard?
Having good grades in my 12th standard, I believe I can answer this question. I would warn before hand that whatever I suggest are based on what I followed and my comfort, strengths and weaknesses. The idea behind sharing it is to give you a sketch of one possible way of making a time-table. Also I was a science student who was simultaneously taking JEE/AIEEE coaching.
- Attend classes. And pay attention in classes. Half of the work is already done if you listen to the teacher from theory POV.
- Be updated with what is being taught. I used to go home and self-study whatever was taught in my coaching, for subjects that followed a different pace in school, point 1 did the trick.
- Most people suggest early morning sessions. I am a night owl and not a morning person at all. I usually studied late-night and instead of trying to shift and adjust to a new pattern, I stuck to it. My advice would be to be comfortable in your own study session and not bother now. When you are your best is left to you.
- Do NOT give equal attention to all subjects. Remember you need to ace all of them and not bring 120/100 in anything. Do not put undue labour in courses you are already good in, probably last two months, yes, else focus on your weak areas. For me, I knew I could manage English and my optional subject, I studied them just before the tests and a month before finals and I was good to go.
- From my personal experience, I feel keep numericals and exercises for times when you will be tired or sleepy. I need a fresh mind to grasp the theory and usually solved questions later part of my night when I was sleepy or tired.
- Keep weekends to revise. In case you are preparing for entrances, this is the ultimate mantra. Sit on weekends just to revise whatever you did the whole week, pending tasks and solve papers on the same topics. Trust me, as months go by, you ll be thorough with all past topics unlike others.
- Maintain notes and formula in one place and go through them at least every other day.
- Set deadlines for yourself and keep a track of your progress and how much is left to cover. Deadlines keep you charged and motivated. Also, brings in discipline. They could be topic wise, chapter wise, week wise or even subject wise, whatever suits you.
- SLEEP. Have good amount of sleep. It helps your grasping power and memory.
