#4. Do not leave out the difficult topics
A common mistake that a student makes while doing a revision of Mathematics is leaving the topics that he finds difficult to process. It is a negative attitude that makes the student’s revision weak. Students might find calculus difficult as compared to matrices and tend to give more importance to one which they find easy and totally ignore the one that they cannot solve.
Try to cover the difficult topics as well. Look through the papers and see the weightage of each chapter. Often the chapter carrying the maximum weightage in the question paper is the one you are planning to skip. This will make your preparation weak and thus will not fetch you even the minimum amount of marks required to pass the examination.
