Preparation for any examination cannot be complete without hardwork and dedication. If you prepare for any examination half heartedly, the chances of succeeding are glim. And hence, the first tip would be, whatever you read, read it with full concentration. This will help you retain the information better.

Read the newspaper -

If you want to clear JMI BA LL.B, you have to keep yourself updated with current affairs. Newspapers will help you prepare for this. Newspapers cover a wide range of topics. If you read an english newspaper, you are simultaneously preparing for current affairs, general knowledge and english language. Three targets with one arrow!

Manage your time -

The most important factor while preparing for an examination is time. It is finite and should be distributed properly amongst all the subjects. Dedicate more time in preparing for the subjects that you find difficult. In doing so, do not ignore the subjects that you find easy. Achieve a balance between the two.

Revision -

Completing a new topic everyday is good, but do not forget to revise the topics that you have read in the past. Human brain forgets things that are registered in the short term memory. Revision will help you retain the information better as the same will get registered in your long term memory.

Take on the challenge -

Don’t be afraid of the subjects that you find difficult. Develop a habit of leaving a question only when you have solved it. If you make this a habit, soon, you will become comfortable in solving each and every type of question, and you will overcome your fear!

Remember the marking system -

JMI BA LL.B 2019 does not follow a negative marking system. This changes the exam day strategy for this examination. Solve the questions that you are confident about first. After completing those, attempt the rest of the questions. Leaving questions unanswered in this examination will not help, instead try to attempt all the questions.
