CUET 2022 Mathematics Preparation Tips

Given below are some important tips for CUET 2022 Mathematics Exam.

Practice is Key

One of the effective ways to prepare for the Mathematics subject is to practice as much as one can. Mathematics is a hands-on subject.  It cannot be mastered until a candidate practices the subject. Candidates are advised to keep o practicing the concepts that they have learned. The more practice takes place the better performance will be.

List down all formulae

It is very important to remember a lot of formulas while learning the subject called Mathematics.  It becomes very difficult to remember all of them until candidates write all the formulas and learn them every day. Therefore, it is important to prepare a chart with all the formulas and try to keep it in a place where you often sit or spend time. Writing and learning all the formulae is very essential because most of the mathematical problems are solved by using them.

Understand the derivations

It is very important to understand the derivations and the logic behind it in order to solve the problems. Even though candidates they learn the formulas but still there is a greater requirement to understand the logic behind it in it application. Understanding the derivations is very important. It is one of the best ways to learn the concepts from their roots.

Clarify all your doubts

Mathematics is a subject that is learnt while doing it practically. There are many possible chances that candidates may get doubts while solving the problems. So candidates should never hesitate to ask and clarify their doubts from friends or teachers. All the candidates are advised to keep in touch with subject experts, teachers or your friends who are good at mathematics, because they may help you to clarify your doubts.


It is mandatory for the candidates to revise all the concepts that are there in the syllabus. Revision helps candidates to remember the concepts learnt. It is as important as learning a new chapter. As human beings, we may forget things that we have learned.  Revision helps to recall what is learnt and perform well in the examination.
