Everyone has different means and methods to study. So, one must plan according to one’s aptitude. According to me, 2 hours a day during a period of 3 months is more than sufficient to get a good score. The trick is to stick to what you have planned. So prepare a study plan and most importantly - follow it sincerely. Nobody can stop you from getting a decent score.
