No, I didn’t have any fix schedule.
I gave around 8-10 hrs daily near exams for my study.

I haven’t prepared any notes nor did I have any special methodology. I just understand the topic and get through it.
4.Was there any help that you acquired while exam preparation? Like any visual aids any professional guidance? Or those little tit bits that the professors tell us but none other than the toppers pay attention to? Please share with us.
Ahh noo! There’s no visual aid or teacher guidance.
My friends helped me get through some topics which I didn’t understand.
5.How vital is the Question bank during exams? Does it come highly recommended or you advice thorough reading of the text and having confound knowledge of the subject?
I find the question bank quite useful! We understand what has to be studied and where to start from!
I myself refer the question bank always!
6.Could you give some important pointers on Exam writing skills? And also how should one prepare for a practical exam?
Exam writing skill….we should focus mainly on the diagrams and the flow charts where ever required and also when not required.
For the convenience of the examiner and to get good marks!
7.So, do you have any parting thoughts? Like disclosing that secret mantra that you chanted or that special brand of energy drink you savored? Just seriously though..anything at all?
Hahah! no there’s nothing like that! I used to get my sleep like I don’t care there’s any exam!
And yes when we are fresh, our mind is fresh we can learn the things faster.
So to all the Nighters I will suggest get the sleep first and then go to the exam!
