IPU CET 2019 Preparation Tips:

How to Crack IPU CET 2019?

The candidates who have checked out the eligibility details, tentative dates and all the other information can start their preparation in order to crack IPU CET 2019. No matter what the exam, the strategy remains pretty much the same. The things that change are the syllabus, reference material and the hours you put in for each subject. Here is the preparation guide for getting admission in colleges and universities of Karnataka:

  1. First of all collect all the information about IPU CET 2019 like eligibility to appear for the examination, exam format, syllabus and exam dates.
  2. Start by making a proper time-table. Since every subject carries equal marks, try to allot equal time for every subject.
  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 time-table and allot equal time for revision of all the subjects. Revision should be done in a smart way and keep separate short 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 two previous year question papers of IPU CET 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. It will only add to the stress, and not the score. Relax your mind, have proper rest and meal. Stay motivated as hard work always pays.
