from any side and keep your eyes wide open for details.
Scheduling is a must
It isn’t no longer school and scheduling for the topics is a must. For all those easy topics, string them together and have a dedicated hour or two, to cover these subjects. For the harder subjects, cut out blocks and chunks of time with short breaks for rest and revision, so you can revaluate on what you’ve learnt. Also schedule an end of the day relearning session where you revise everything with a small synopsis in order to keep what you learnt the entire day in your mind.

This helps you to cut-down on the number of pages you’ve to go through before entering the examination hall. This method is very useful as you can re-read easily during revision and get through it fast, so you can focus on the next subject for the exam

Coaching classes are for people who can afford to spend time close to 6 hours for studying, whereas if you’re working and would like to write the exam at the same time, it’s better to do it via an e-tutor. There are several programs out there that will help you learn the basic concepts of the exams. E-tutoring soft wares also help you keep track of what you’re studying along with your progress in the subject.
Sitting for mock tests
Mock tests are a great way to know your progress in learning.

The more you do this, the easier it will be to track your progress in learning. It will also help you predict your early scores and help you plan accordingly for the exam day.
