First, get good grades in your +2 exams and then get yourself enrolled a reputable college or university. This will allow you to determine your career path, as well as the subject to study and direction to follow in society. Take note of it, he said.
Prepare for the exam by making small notes; it is easy to revise small notes at the time of examination, Subham advised.
