Some call up friends just to console yourself that they are not alone, some panic but very few actually make an attempt to open their books.
Well, if you have been late for some genuine or even a lazy excuse, here are the
Tips to Prepare for Exam With Less Time to Prepare

So you need to divide your time into proper proportion in order to cover your syllabus. You know your strengths and weaknesses, so you cannot waste time at the end moment to read chapters that you don’t know or weak at. Study things that you have avg knowledge of and then your strengths and if time permits then the weak subject.
4. Find a Student-Mentor:
There is always one person in your group who is pretty much prepared for the exam than you are. Ask this person for some help. Genuine people would not decline to your request. This can help you get sorted with lot of your concepts. Have the basic courtesy to appreciate his/her efforts. But do not hog your friend’s time too much, as he would not help you the next time you need him. No one would want there result to get affected just because they were helping you.
You can even take the help of applications or websites available to help you in studies like Photomath.
