Myth: Being good or bad in any subject is inborn and cannot be enhanced or excelled by hard work
Often it happens one is inherently good in certain subjects and is able to master it with ease. Such students don’t find it difficult in grasping the topics. This makes them believe that they are innately good in it and conversely, there is no need for indulging in hard work. On the other hand, when students are told they are bad in certain subjects and no matter what they do, acing it is quite difficult, then building in mind can also backfire on you.
In both the scenarios, it is the hard work that takes the back seat and needs to be comprehended in order to come out in flying colors. Because there is nothing better than hard work and that is the only thing that can sail you across the ocean of learning.

Myth: Subjects you are good at doesn’t need much revision
Whether it is an easy topic or a tough one, revision is required for every subject and topic. You never know what you find easy may turn out to be a difficult topic and you may blank out during the exam. Thus, it is necessary to give equal importance to each and every topic whether it is difficult or easy. Moreover, you can start with bifurcating the questions into easy and difficult topics and later go on to devote your time to each of the topics accordingly. However, while polishing your skills in difficult topics is important, it is necessary to revise both topics regularly after completing each topic.
Myth: Learning diagrams is not important
Diagrams, when used with care, can help you imbibe things easily. Diagrams offer a lucrative stop for students to revise their answers. If you are well abreast with the diagrams, then you can very well add to your knowledge and understanding. Moreover, diagrams are more scoring and if you are well abreast with them, you can score more marks.
Myth: Starting with new topics 1 month before the exam will help you remember things
If you want to score well, then remember to abstain yourself from starting with any new topic one month prior to the exam.

So its better to close all your books one month in advance and hereby only concentrate on revising what you have already learned.
