Do not study two subjects or two chapters in a day, instead make a weekly or monthly schedule along with dedicated hours. Devote 2 to 3 hours to each chapter or subject. You can also divide the subjects into weeks and clear all backlogs subject-wise.

Devote 2 to 3 hours to each chapter or subject. You can also divide the subjects into weeks and clear all backlogs subject-wise. If you can not give 2-3 hours each day to backlogs, we would suggest you at least. Group studies are a great way to widen your horizons and clear your doubts. But if they have covered more chapters or topics than you, you will eventually feel left out and lose confidence. So, its best to avoid them if you are not at the same pace. You can start group studying once you have cleared your backlogs. If you are going through theories then it's best to make short notes while reading them, it will save your time and help you in revision. Give tests at the end of each chapter, so that you are aware of your progress. Analyze your test results and work on the topics you find difficult. We suggest putting a timer during tests to provide yourself with real-life situations. Always aim to finish the tests in less time than previous attempts.
Hope it helps. If you found it useful then upvote or thumbs up my answer. Good luck.
