In order to manage your time effectively it is suggested to prepare a schedule. Once you have a schedule in place, you will know exactly what to do when and this will save a lot of time wasted in deciding what is to be done each day.

Setting targets motivates you to work harder and make the most of the time you have. Hence, it is suggested to make daily, weekly as well as monthly targets and work dedicatedly to achieve the same.
• Remind Yourself of Your Ultimate Goal
Keep reminding yourself of your ultimate goal. Tell yourself repeatedly as to why you decided to sit for the exam and as to what is your ultimate goal in life. This will motivate you to study with dedication.
• Identify Your Time of Study
While some people can concentrate best during the early morning hours others can learn better during the late evening hours. It is essential to identify the time of the day when you can concentrate best and study during that time to learn your lessons efficiently.
• Use the Unaccountable Time
There is a lot of time that goes unaccounted during the day. For instance, the time when you are travelling to and from the school and coaching classes, the time you are waiting for your meal to be served, etc. It is suggested to keep your notes handy all the time and give a glance whenever you get time.
• Make Play Cards
Prepare play cards for different topics, formulas and other stuff. These can be easily kept handy and are a fun way to learn. Use different coloured pens to highlight the main points and make the play cards attractive.
• Ac Indulge in Group Studies
Self study can often lead to monotony and lower your ability to concentrate after a certain point. It is thus suggested to indulge in group studies from time to time in order to break the monotony and use your time more efficiently.

Being serious about studies is good as those who study dedicatedly from the very beginning are the ones who climb the success ladder and make it big in life. However, as they say, excess of anything is bad so though this dedication towards your studies works in your favour being overtly studious may go against you. Yes! Being studious can be dangerous. Here is how it can impact you negatively:
Social Life Goes for a Toss
Students who are studious often avoid social gatherings, parties and outings with friends and family and rather dedicate that time to their studies. They are seldom seen going out during the evenings or on holidays as they prefer studying rather than whiling away time roaming around. This practice cuts them off from the society. This way they might be able to score high in their exams however it is likely to make them socially awkward. And as you know even a degree from a reputed university doesn’t help fetch a good job if you do not have good social and inter-personal skills.

Several candidates from Aurangabad’s Marathwada appearing for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET-PG) were taken aback when the examination centre rejected their e-Aadhaar as identity proof. As per the authorities at the centre the National Board of Examinations (NBE) had issued a decree stating that the e-Aadhaar would not be valid. The decree was issued two days after the commencement of the exam.
Earlier the Union government had mentioned that the e-Aadhaar would serve as a valid identity proof. This is the reason why the students and their parents were agitated on learning otherwise. As per them, there was no prior intimation about the e-Aadhaar being invalid.
“The NBE had allowed me to appear for the DBM entrance exam in June 2016. The NEET-PG admit card issued by NBE did not mention that e-Aadhaar would be considered invalid. Since I came all the way from Nanded, I had no chance to go back and get another identity proof. This apathetic attitude of the board has ruined my career,” said Abhishek Rapte, a student from Nanded whose two years of efforts were wasted because of this change.
Another student, Amruta Loya shared that she too did not receive any information about the e-Aadhaar being invalid. She told the exam coordinators that her parents were on their way from Jalna with other ID proofs and requested them to let her appear for the exam but in vain. Her father Kailash Loya, a public prosecutor said, “This is unfair. The students are harassed for no fault of theirs. We will drag the board to the court and seek justice”. Many other parents echoed the same.
