I got a great result from using a sat tutor, as she was able to help me focus better and prioritize well. Get yourself one to help you know what is more important and how to tackle all those tricky questions. They can even help you understand what is actually expected of you.

Study Partner

Having a tutor and a study partner is a great combination. While the tutor can tell you what to focus on, the partner can help you focus better. You can compare notes on a daily basis and keep a close watch on your progress. When you have someone to compare and base your progress on, it really helps you understand where you stand and how much more effort is required.

It brings in a sense of competition in addition to the focus. Competitive element in your everyday schedule can help you focus and perform better,

Schedule

Schedule your daily activities in such a way that you have time to study. Also schedule which subjects are going to be covered when. This way, you can keep a tab on your progress and put in extra hours to catch up when you are lagging behind in your schedule.
