How to prepare for AP PGECET Exam?

Scoring high or low in an exam completely depends on the preparation and the effort that one puts in the preparation phase. Some major aspect has been discussed here below.

Fixing the Objective: One can have the best cruise ship in the world but if he or she does not have a destination the ship would drift around in the sea and end up nowhere. Therefore, set a goal as to why you want to crack this exam and that will drive you.

Time Management: Everybody has the same time and so it is important to manage time by planning and prioritizing the activities daily. One has to get up early to have a long day so that he or she can allot all the subjects' equal time.

Staying Focussed: During preparation, it is natural to become demotivated and lost hope. So one has to concentrate only on the end goal and prepare smartly for the exam.
