Move on from a tough topic

At times, you may find it difficult to revise a particular topic or solve a specific problem. Do not fret over it and move on to the next one. You can tackle that topic after a couple of hours. Also, stick to the topics that you have studied. Avoid studying any new topic at the last minute.
