    yaa its right approach.. u can stretch it till june 30.. from 1st july to 15th july give 2 tests each day (hardly takes 3 hours).. after that introspect the areas where u are making mistakes and revise them in next 15 days.. and from 1 august to 6th august have one more go at basic books..
  • @DrKingSchultz All the best brother - I am sure you will make it Prelims -3 Mains -1 Interview -1 AIR XY {2 digit} :)

    Ur revising great here we are finishing... I dnt know your schedule but I would suggest that after you end your day.. Get hold of your lap and try solving test series.. Keep a pen n paper handy... And write down the answers.. Next day check it and note down solutions in your register.. That way u gonna know ur flaws and ur strong areas... Make extra effort towards your weak areas and there you go.... I think till June u should complete everything.. Notes making and everything.. From July onwards test series previous years paper and revision...

    hmm yeah correct ...btw i make electronic notes on Evernote ,dont use pen and paper coz i wna reduce the dependence on it and its easy to revise e-notes again and again as we dont have to waste time in arranging our hand written notes.. hmm yea thats a good approach ..i have to finish revision till the end of June and I think I may give 1 daily test starting from July or late June say from 25th or so and before that i gta revise almost all subjects ,I have just started revision I have been revising since just last 15 days or so i need at least 1.5 months more to revise fully to start giving tests daily later as it consumes much time..meanwhile i am giving tests in every 7 days which i guess will suffice for now... is it cool @Truly Urzz ?
  • Don't neglect previous year questions.
  • yeah for sure @MK420 :smile:
