Practice Sample Papers: Get sample papers of all the subjects and practice it in the allocated time.

Allot time for each subject: Allot time for each and every subject and try to complete it.

Focus more on revision: Rather than picking a new topic, focus on revision of important topics.

Take breaks: Studying long hours is important, but breaks must be given to students. Experts say a comic break could do wonders for students.

Notably, schools, colleges across the country were closed since mid-March. However, in some states, educational institutes opened partially from October 15, but some decided to keep them shut.

On the other hand, several schools are reportedly following their time table and are trying to complete the syllabus as CBSE has completed the process of list of candidates, examination forms (LOC).
