Suggestion # 01
The study plan assumes that candidates do not have confusion with fundamental concepts. Reserve the first two months of the plan for learning. Follow the plan to study subjects in their entirety within the scheduled period.
Suggestion # 02
Do not go too much into theory learning during this period. Clear the concepts and focus more on solving model papers, previous year questions, mock tests etc.
Suggestion # 03
Integral Calculus & Differential Equation is a vast subject. An entire week is dedicated to it. Make the best use of the time and cover as much as possible. It is during this week, that candidates can also start revising subjects already completed or use the time for clearing any concepts.
Suggestion # 04
The final month is reserved for revisions. Dedicate the entire time to study solved papers, previous year questions, and mock tests. Candidates can solve the papers themselves, but do not waste time over critical maths problems. Instead, seek help and instantly learn the correct method to solve them.
Suggestion # 05
The final week of the last month is flexible to incorporate any subject the candidate feels necessary. Do not attempt to study everything all over again in the final week. Instead, try to revise selected subjects or just focus on solving mock tests and previous year papers.
