CUET 2022 Political Science Preparation Tips

Excel at Your Syllabus

The first step for the preparation for any examination is to master the syllabus of the examination. Excelling is to know in and out of the entire syllabus. Candidates are advised to go through the syllabus thoroughly. All the topics are important so all the topics should be covered. Candidates having an excellent knowledge of all the topics will help the candidates to perform well in the examination.

Sketch Out a Study Plan

Planning is very important to achieve anything in life. To succeed and acquire admission through CUET, candidates must prepare a study plan or timetable.  Sketching out a plan covering all the topics, revision, and practice test is a very important aspect of preparation. Candidates must prepare all the topics as planned out.

Revision

Revise all the units, topics, and sub-topics as well. Revision is another important aspect of preparation. Candidates are advised to revise after completion of preparation of all the topics. Revision helps candidates in recalling what they have learnt and studied.  Revision is a very important activity that one should do before the examination. Hence, give enough time for the revision.

Practice

Practicing sample papers, mock test papers or previous year papers is a very essential part of preparation. Practicing such papers will aid the candidates to know the areas of improvement and the areas of strength. Aspirants are advised to practice as many as tests possible. It will improve the accuracy, speed, time management, and performance of the candidate if focused well.

Set out Time-Bound Goals

Framing and setting time-bound goals is very important for any individual to become successful. Most of the candidates really work hard to achieve their goals. However, some of them will receive their desired goals and some may not. The difference between these two categories of students is quite simple. Candidates who did not get desired goals are the ones, who concentrated only on studying and working hard but the other category of students may know that setting up short and time-bound goals will help them to achieve their bigger goal. For instance, preparing the entire syllabus and performing well in the examination is the ultimate goal. So setting up time-bound goals is to divide your time into days or hours to achieve the smaller goals (learning and revising specific chapters or units or concepts) that will help you to reach the bigger goal.
