IIIT 2019 Preparation Tips:

We will give you some tips on how to get admission in any of the IIITs. Every person has their own way of studying but a little guidance can help them how to prepare in the right way.

  1. First of all collect all the information about the respective exam like eligibility to appear for the examination, exam format, syllabus, and exam dates.
  2. Start by making a proper timetable. Try to allow time for every subject according to its weight.
  3. Go over the entire syllabus and note down all the topics. Collect the books and all reference material needed for preparation.
  4. After covering the entire syllabus once, make a new timetable and allow equal time for revision of all the subjects. Revision should be done in a smart way and keep separate notes of important concepts.
  5. After some practice revision will get easier and faster. Now collect all the previous year question papers and start solving them daily.
  6. Solve at least one previous year question paper every day. Solve these papers like you would solve the actual exam; within the given time frame. Through this practice, candidates will get an idea of how much time should be given to a particular type of question.
  7. Keep the time limit in mind and don’t get stuck on a particular question. Skip the questions you find more time-consuming and return to those questions once you are done with the rest of the paper. This is the correct method of attempting the question paper to complete it on time and score good marks.
  8. Finally, solve some fresh mock test papers and do the last revision.
  9. Do not study anything one day before the exam. Relax your mind and stay motivated.
