The candidates have to start their preparation as early as possible. Last minutes study will not help the students. So the students have to prepare a time table for study. The students have to collect the syllabus and previous question papers from the website. The students have to split the syllabus into small sections. Try to cover all the topics as mentioned in the syllabus. Lists of reference books are mentioned in the website. Try to collect necessary notes from those books. Make use of the services provided by the coaching centers. Mock tests help the students to recognize their strengths and weaknesses. Give more time to study the difficult topics.
