How to Prepare for CTET 2018

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) organises the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) every year for the candidates interested in the teaching sector. It is a national level examination that must be prepared well for a good score. For this, it is important for the candidates to know the technique of how to prepare for CTET 2018.

Preparation of CTET 2018 will be considered successful only if the candidates are aware of the syllabus and exam pattern of CTET 2018. Knowing the syllabus will help candidates to understand the topics and sections that must be covered for CTET 2018 examination. Mentioned below are few tips and tricks that will help candidates to conquer this examination with flying colours.

Set a Goal:

Candidates must identify their strong areas and also plan the amount of time that should spend on each of the sections/topics in order to complete the exam syllabus on time.

Go Through the Syllabus:

The candidates should go through all the important topics in the syllabus, divide the time according to the topics and note down the topics that need to be prepared first. Try to go through the previous year exam papers. Make a list of the topics according to their importance and previous year question papers.

Time Management:

 Time managed is half the job done. Students' success in the exam is directly attached to how well they manage their time. Aspirants should solve the exam paper before time and stay one step ahead. If the candidate finds any question difficult then leave that question or mark that question, and move on other questions. Try to finish the exam before time so that you can again attempt the entire marked question at the end and revise your answers.

Practice Makes a Man Perfect:

Regular practice not only raises the speed level but raises the accuracy level also.These two are the key to success as the questions attempted by the candidates must be accurate.

Be Confident:

Confidence is a must as it can boost your exam preparation.However, aspirants should know the difference between confidence and over confidence. Maintaining a gap between the two is crucial.

Joining a Crash Course:

Joining a reputed crash course is another CTET Preparation Tips in order to deal with the doubts. The crash course offers the competitive atmosphere which is extremely beneficial to qualify the exam.

Remain Stress-Free:

Do not overload yourself with information before the exam. You cannot study all the things before the exam. Do not panic, just relax and take complete sleep. Becoming anxious just before the exam is certainly not good for your exam grades. Try to reach examination center before time, so that you can relax and focus well on the question paper.
