It is the goal of each student to crack the Olympiad Exam. Many students can do it but many students are not even though they are capable of doing it.
How To Crack Olympiad Exam On the First Attempt
Start At The Earliest
The Most Important thing is to start at the earliest. You should not waste the time. No matter, how far the exams are, you should prepare for them from now onwards. Olympiads are not that much easy Other than your daily work, Olympiad exams should be equally important. Never compare the Olympiad exam study with your regular school homework. Both are different. School homework or studies does not fulfill the requirement for Olympiad studies. For example: just doing school science homework you should not skip the preparation of the science Olympiad for that day Understand the Olympiad syllabus thoroughly. it is important to know What kind of questions will come from which topic. Create a listing of your weak and strong topics on the paper. Start with the topics you like most and which are easy for you. When you will get prepared for easy and strong topics first. Then you would be able to do the questions related to that topic. This will give you confidence that you can do any type of question on this topic. so, when you will start doing tough topics, this confidence will help you in that. and you can concentrate more on your weak or tough topics. Write all the formulas and theorems in a separate notebook if preparing for the math or science Olympiad. try to read them whenever you get time. It is proven scientifically that when you see or read the same thing again and again. Then it gets stored in your subconscious mind, and then you can memorize them for life long.
It is not compulsory that only brilliant students can crack the Olympiad exams Even they can also fail to achieve the target they want to and it is just because of no time management It is saying that smart work is better than hard work. You should learn time management in your daily life But it is more advisable for the competitive exams. It is equally important to solve the questions correctly and timely. and that technique can be learned only through time management.
Attempt As Many Questions A You Can
“Practice makes a man Perfect” This saying is true for students too Try to solve as many questions related to your topic as you can till exams.

Rate your work by yourself before anyone else does Try to solve the questions related to your topics daily Your parents/cousins or siblings can help you with this. They can ask you questions related to the topic you prepared whatever rating or feedback you get, then you can check how much you are prepared for the topic Please be faithful towards your ratings because whatever rating you will genuinely give to yourself will help you to understand your preparation if you will get less rating, you will practice more Do not rate yourself than you deserve, it will show you that you are doing great but it is not your goal.
