There is a bit difference between preparing for an exam under guidance by staying in an environment where the people with the same goal around us and we ourselves preparing for an exam with self-motivation and self-learning. But it doesn’t mean that we can’t get success without taking coaching and it takes some extra time to do ourselves everything.

All that needs is more practice with a proper plan by knowing the shortcuts, tips, and tricks in solving the paper on different sections of the given exam syllabus with proper planning in the preparation.
