As explained in our previous blogs, competitive exams require a highly examination-oriented education and preparation. But, preparation for cracking through an exam with a conversion rate of 1% or lesser requires high dedication and perseverance. It is very important for the students to gauge the learning on a regular basis and be aware of their strengths and weaknesses accordingly.
Self Analysis is a very important tool for this purpose. In this third article based on the webinar ‘Unlock more marks – Go online’, we explain the process of evaluating oneself and working on self-improvement.
Self Analysis requires a deep understanding of one’s subject proficiencies and knowledge. It is of utmost importance to be aware of your strengths and weaknesses so that you can strategize your test taking strategy and preparation accordingly. This needs to be done through self-analysis and analysis of your performance.
For thorough self-analysis, you need to find out following points:
- Your high scoring areas
- Your concept deficiencies
- Types of mistakes
- Frequency of each type of mistake
Self Analysis should be carried out by:
Identifying weaknesses and strengths
Though students are aware of their weaknesses and strengths, their self-analysis is often prone to bias or errors. The best way to conduct self-analysis is to extensively appear for tests and infer your strength or weakness from the frequency of mistakes or successful attempts in questions across various subjects or their sub-topics. Deeper and more intensive the analysis better is the help that it can give to you in preparations.
Prioritisation is very important when the syllabus is very vast. For syllabus spanning three subjects, more than 5 dozen chapters and hundreds of concepts, it is highly important to sort out what you need to study first and what later.
