Keep in mind that your exam preparation is equivalent to a runner preparing for a marathon race, therefore, you have to keep the focus on FMGE throughout the preparation not to let your body and mind slack off until the entire FMGE is over.
Focus vs Attention:
Focus: the act of concentrating your interest or activity on something.
Attention/concentration: how we actively process specific information in our environment & Attention is a basic part of the cognitive system.
Key points about attention:
Attention is limited in terms of both capacity and duration. Key variables that impact are how interested we are & how many distracters we experience (multitasking seldom works well according to the research published in 2018)
Attention is selective on a specific item in our environment by filtering out an enormous number of other.
