Strategies for preparing AIBE
The best way to prepare for AIBE is to carefully read and analyse the syllabus assigned for the exam and then, plan your timetable accordingly.
According to the syllabus, prioritise your subjects. Start with the one carrying maximum weightage.
Since AIBE is an open book exam, a thorough reading of bare acts will ensure that you are familiar with the structure and thus will be able to answer the questions quickly.
You should have a good understanding of the provisions of the Act.
Time management is of an essence, so try to attempt as many mock-tests as possible to check your timing and subject knowledge.
And last but not the least, take care of your health while preparing for the examination. Take ample rest so that you feel rejuvenated rather than tired.
