Students studying the night before the exam may or may not perform good. What to do in such situations? How to cover entire syllabi in less time? First, try to break down the chapters into smaller chunks; topics. Select the easiest topics and complete it. Try to read the summaries or extracts you prepared while attending the class at school. Try to go through previous year exam papers and chapter-end exercise in the textbooks. Try to make tricks/mnemonics to recall the same. Summarise or teach your friends what you learned at regular intervals. Take breaks in between study time. A tired brain cannot focus and learn fast.
