Further, it is essential that the notes are high-yielding, i.e. take notes in the form of short compact points rather than noting down complete paragraphs. Use different colored pens for taking notes. Further, only take notes of the Most Important Points and not each and every detail.

Pen and paper mode of preparation solely does not work in an online exam. It is imperative to develop familiarity with the online platform and learn Time Management skills and Accuracy. Attempt Online Mock Tests on a routine basis and keep track of your Strengths and Weaknesses. Strive to strengthen your weak areas and try to reduce your mistakes with each subsequent mock test attempt.
