Since you already have an under-graduation degree i.e. B.Com (//B.Com) that is cool. Now you have LBPS Clerk Exam on 5th December and do not worry if you have faith in yourself, study hard till 3rd Dec, take a day off and confidently give your examination. There are these methods you can employ to aid your hard work:
- Figure out a systematic study plan.
- Have access to the best study material.
- Refer to best books for preparation .
- Solve mock tests , practise papers and previous year question papers .
- Stay updated with current affairs.
- Revise on a daily basis.
REMEMBER: Do not give up and focus on yourself.
I will also urge you to sit for Student and Career Counselling offered by NGOs which will help and guide you.
Have Faith in yourself
