CEED and UCEED 2024 exam day guidelines are laid by the conducting body to ensure candidates don’t miss out on any important detail of the exam. Check out some of the most important guidelines below:

Reach as per reporting time at the exam centre

Candidates must note that they are required to arrive on time for the entrance exam to avoid any last-minute rush. The exam starts at 9:00 AM and the reporting time is 7:00 AM, so candidates are advised to reach at least one hour before the exam time. 

Carry the Admit Card & Photo ID Proof

It must be noted that no digital copy or photocopy is acceptable at the examination centre. Also, the mentioned documents must be carried for verification purposes so without them no candidate will be allowed entry. 

Carry your stationery

It is advisable to bring your stationery to the exam centre such as pencils, colours, sketch pens, pens and others. However, they are not allowed to carry any drawing sheets in the examination hall. 

Do Not Carry any electronic gadgets

It must be noted that carrying any electronic devices such as smartphones, watches, calculators, tablets or other gadgets is strictly prohibited at the exam centre. Candidates can refer to the list of forbidden items at the UCEED and CEED exam centres on the official website. 

Manage Time Wisely

Time management is very crucial on the final exam day. As these entrances include two sections, candidates have to focus on the written section along with the sketching or drawing part. Solving the question paper while keeping an eye on the time will add to the speed.

CEED and UCEED 2024 Last-Minute Tips

To qualify for the CEED and UCEED 2024 exams, candidates must note the last-minute tips which will help them brush up on their preparation and be ready for the final day. Check out the last-minute tips below:

Solve Mock Tests

Students are advised to check out the official mock test for both CEED and UCEED on the official website. Solving previous year's question papers and sample papers from time to time will not only help trace the preparation but also understand the exam pattern and the nature of questions which may come in the exam. 

Keep a Notebook

Always keep a notebook ready and write down all the important topics on it. This tip is also useful for aspirants as they can revisit the notes for last-minute revision anytime.


Revising is always considered to be the main factor while preparing for an entrance. Candidates are also advised to keep revising the important topics to keep them in their memory. It also helps in memorising so that candidates do not forget important information on exam day.

Consistency is the Key

To be very precise, consistency is the only key to success. Do not be inconsistent with your exam preparation. Keep reading and practising every day. Also, taking breaks between study time will help in better concentration but do not take a complete day or two off, as it is considered to hamper the exam spirit and reflects in the final performance.

Give Proper Rest to Your Mind & Body

Even so, during the exam preparation, do not treat your human mind and body as machines. You must take proper rest for both body and mind by doing recreational activities and taking regular breaks. Consuming a healthy diet and taking an 8-hour long sleep will help in removing stress or fatigue.

Take a Printout of the Admit Card

After your complete preparation, don't forget your Admit cards of UCEED and CEED admit cards. As they are the most important documents and an individual must take a printout of the same before the exam day.

Keep the Documents Ready

Documents should be kept beforehand, such as the admit card, photo ID card and latest passport-sized photograph that need to be carried on the exam day. Candidates must assemble documents and must not keep them for the eleventh hour.
