I am not Disheartened. What Next ?
Next step is to pick up the mock test and go through its solutions carefully and patiently. Surprisingly, many students ignore the solutions after giving a mock test, defeating the purpose of the test. So, don’t make the same mistake. Go through the solutions carefully and patiently. While, going through solutions, you actually learn the application of theory o problem solving, which is an important skill for cracking exams like NEET and JEE.
I have gone through Solutions. What Next ?
If you have gone though solutions carefully, then by now you have acquired valuable knowledge that will help you to solve problems for your Entrance Exam. So now you should pick up another Mock Paper and solve it. You may revise / practice important / weak chapters before giving the test.
Don’t worry about the results . Even if you score low again, it’s fine.Because, by going through all solutions and revising the parts that you got wrong, you improve your skills which will definitely help you in the final exam.
And Lastly, I haven’t completed theory. Should I solve Mock Papers ?
You should definitely solve mock papers. When you solve MCQs, you cover up all aspects of the examination – practice, revision, theory, calculation, etc. You need to learn by practicing. There are many (rather most) basic concepts that can only be understood through practice.
So keep solving mock papers even though you still have some theory left to be covered.
These practice sessions that you spend on Mock tests are really going to be important for your final results. So make sure you make good use of these mock tests.
