Here are the few technique which will help you to score good marks in your exams.


Goal Setting:

Your Intelligence helps you to reach your destination (Goal/Aim) Provided you know what the destination (Goal/Aim) is. Goals are like road maps which show the right direction. Students fail in Exams not because of lack of intelligence but because of lack of desire, direction, dedication and lastly discipline.

Without goals life is like getting lost in a Freeway.

Will you get into a train without knowing where it is going?f
For a journey of 100 miles you have definite plan. Then why do students go through a life of 100 years without having any goal/aim. Can you play a football game without setting a goal post? What could be the cost of goal post? Very nominal . What would happened to the game without goal post? There is nothing left . how do you keep score? How do you declare the winner?

Enthusiasm without direction leads to frustration.

Goals give a sense of direction , and improves the self image and confidence of students. Doubt is replaced by the direction. It gives you a track to run on.
Have a definite clear written goal. Have a plan to accomplish it.
