If the goals are clear, then its worth dying for and the failure in the first attempt would not be that much destructing. You will try until the last effort and win eventually if you are clear and persistent into your choice.
Although setting a clear cut goal is the primary need, but the selection of the subject also matters. Since it is the first step into a practical strategy plan to pass a CSS exam and not only pass but it can also earn you a distinction which could in the shape of topping the exam. Sometimes, aspirants choose the subject with the consultation of the family members or some teachers which are of their choice (the one who is being consulted) and not of their personal aptitude. Therefore, they remain unable to grasp the essence of the subject, which results in failure. That is why it is essential to choose the topic of personal interest to have a better command over the issue, and this command will help in scoring more marks than the other candidates.
After the selection process, comes the time allocation, which is the next step into the ladder towards the destination. Since CSS is not an easy thing to pass, and it requires a lot of energies and dedication; therefore, it is crucial to allocate a minimum of 10 hours reading a day. One must be very strict towards himself in terms of following the time table and should not miss any of the slots decided for the study hours. Make sure you have a room with proper light, and air ventilation and no one could disturb you during that period. Make a plan first where you know how much time you have for the preparation and then divide time with every subject differently. Also, you have to allocate a specific time duration to a particular subject. Start with the difficult subjects first by assigning maximum to the difficult most subject and move to the easier one afterwards because they will require lesser time and energies.
From setting the aim to the selection of subjects and making a time frame afterwards now, we are moving towards a more difficult thing which is CONCEPTUALIZING! We, the aspirants while preparing to try to cram and memorize everything which comes to our way, which is a bad practice. It would be best if you try to grasp the essence of the topic but developing a logical sequence of it which works step by step. If you built a logical chronology, it would not be difficult for you to learn that question. Besides, you must exactly know how to choose the material. One must not be reading everything which is being suggested by the people but to evaluate the credibility of the source and then start reading. It will not only save the time but energies also which may be utilized in grasping the core concept of some other topic.
After getting through all these steps when one is almost done with the preparation, you must test yourself with a different practice or mock tests. It will help you to realize where you are lagging behind and which areas need to be worked on. Make sure that you have an experienced person to evaluate your practice who may highlight your strengths and weaknesses in handling a question.
Next and final step is to sharpen the language skills because command over the English language will surely earn you success in the CSS exams. Precis and Composition paper of CSS is a hallmark when it comes to top the CSS exam. Therefore, it is highly suggested to work on language skills. You must know the techniques to write logically with proper use of sentence structure and grammar; also, you must be aware of the use of punctuation.
