Now, moving on to the preparation strategy, if you are planning to appear for CUCET 2021, then you must do your exam preparation in the right manner. Following the preparation tips given below may help you sail through the entrance exam easily.

Set Up a Study Plan:

While preparing the time table for CUCET 2021, you must ensure that your timetable is in tune with your schedule and daily needs. Applying a proper study plan will help you manage your time as well as attain the targets. So, setting up a study plan for yourself is the first thing you should do to crack your entrance exam.

Break Things into Smaller Sections:

For CUCET 2021, one good way to study is to break the entire CUCET syllabus into smaller sections. This way, you can study the topics one by one instead of trying to understand everything in one go. Also, breaking the syllabus into small sections will enhance your ability to understand a particular topic in true sense.

Start Preparing Early:

Starting exam preparation early is a practice that candidates should follow religiously, irrespective of the exam they are appearing for. Beginning the preparation early can greatly reduce last moment exam stress and pressure. Beginning your CUCET 2021 exam preparation well in advance lets you complete all your exam syllabus on time.

Take Timed Tests:

Taking timed tests is as important as clearing your concepts. During your CUCET 2021 exam preparation, you might be able to solve many questions, but what if you are not able to solve them within the time limit This is why you should take timed tests so that you can complete your exam well in time and identify the types of questions that are time-consuming.

Now, we can divide the study plan into the type of candidates. There can be three types of candidates depending on their level of preparation:

  • First, who are only left with revision

  • Second, the candidate who is halfway through or has just started.

  • Third, someone who is yet to begin with the preparation. 

CUCET 2021 Preparation for Candidates who are Only left with Revision

  • Identify the sections that you need to work on again.

  • Prepare a strategy accordingly. 

  • If part of the syllabus is still left, try and finish the entire syllabus first.

  • Revise the topics that find comparatively difficult and then move on the relatively easier topics.

  • When you are done with the syllabus, start putting your brain in the exam environment by practising mock tests. These mock tests will also help you with time management on the day of the exam.

  • Go through the previous year question papers to find a pattern of questions and the ones that may seem to be the most important. 

CUCET 2021 Preparation for Candidates who have Just Started Preparing

  • Make sure you have the right study material for CUCET 2021 along with previous year question papers and mock tests.

  • The candidate must have a clear understanding of the syllabus and exam pattern.

  • Look for the important sections that you must cover right in the beginning. Post that, you may move on the less important topics. 

  • General awareness is something that you need to work on every day. The smartest way to cover all the important topics is by taking part in a few GK quizzes for the year 2021.

  • Practice a few mock tests or previous year question papers. 

CUCET 2021 Preparation For Candidates who have not Started With the Preparation At All

  • Most candidates make the mistake of starting with the CUCET 2021 Preparation without making a plan. Plans always help candidates study in a systematic way. SO, spend some time in making a preparation strategy for CUCET 2021.

  • Focus on the important topics and if you are left with no time at all, leave the topics that you have no idea about. 

  • Solve more and more sample question papers/mock tests/previous year question papers which will help you understand the paper better.
