Only a small number of candidates achieve high scores and are chosen. This is mostly due to a lack of adequate planning. Inadequate training causes you to become stressed before and during the test, causing you to perform below your potential. There are a variety of factors that may hinder you from performing well, ranging from procrastination to unfavorable circumstances.

The exam is difficult to pass for both newcomers and those who have taken it before due to the complexity of the questions. Here are several pointers to help you study effectively and prevent unnecessary stress on exam day.

The Key to Success is Motivation.

It is possible to excel if you show interest in the training and inspire yourself to perform well. The first step in staying motivated is to stop putting things off unnecessarily. Procrastination leaves you with no time to prepare for the test, causing undue tension and anxiety. If you put off planning, you'll end up with:

False sense of protection - later on, you miss the study plan and classes, resulting in insufficient practice.
Idleness contributes to the repetition of bad habits, and you won't be able to devote enough time to planning, which is essential for success.

Once you've decided to pursue a career in banking, you'll need to keep focused and stick to a study schedule. It is important to take a methodical and consistent approach. You will do this with the aid of motivation.

It's Important to Have a Plan
Establish relevant milestones as well as long and short-term goals. Create a detailed study plan that focuses on each segment separately.
For example, you might set a short-term goal of grasping the data interpretation definition and scoring above 80% on the mock tests. You can set a long-term goal of achieving a 90 percent score in the numerical skill portion.

Make a detailed study plan for each segment and stick to it religiously.
Try to meet the deadline, because if you don't, you'll be able to identify your strengths and weaknesses and focus on them accordingly.
The most important aspect is to make the strategy practical so that you can carry it out effectively.

Positively Consider Criticisms
It is normal for friends and family to place pressure on you when you are planning. The best way to deal with criticism is to avoid objectifying derogatory remarks directed at you and instead focus your attention on constructive endeavors. You will improve your training level even more if you use feedback as an opportunity to succeed.

Practice the difficult questions and keep track of your mistakes.
Revision is made easier with pointers, hints, tricks, and formulas.
Make sure you read all of the questions carefully before selecting an answer during the exam. Start with the questions you know and progress to the more complex ones later.

You would be calmer and more relaxed if you have properly trained and planned a good strategy for answering the questions. All the best to you!
