General Tips & Trick to Crack MAH CET 2021

Make a Proper Time Table

It is very important that you make a proper timetable for yourself and stick to it so that you have an exact idea of what you are required to study and the time required for it.

Concept Clarity Rather Than Rote Learning

It is essential for you to have a clear idea of all the formulas and concepts rather than rote learning for the entrance exam. Having thorough concept clarity will help you in memorizing the formulas while studying and will clear your basics a before moving on.

Prepare Notes

It is indeed important for you to make small notes or prepare a comprehensive list of the formulas on each of the topic/chapters, as these notes will come in handy at the time of revision. Also, this will require you to be regular with your work, which will surely make things easy at the time of revision.

Seek Guidance

It is not possible for you to know everything in your syllabus, at least not at the time of your exam preparation. Sooner or later you will run into a concept/ topic which will give you trouble later. Therefore, it is best for you to seek guidance from an instructor or a teacher. It is necessary that you clear your doubts at regular intervals and do not keep your doubts pending for long.

Sample Papers

Even though there may be a complete change in the exam pattern or the expected questions altogether, it is important that you practice on the sample and previous years question papers. By solving sample papers, you will know the existing pattern and have a fair idea of the type of questions that come in the paper along with the time constraint.

Mock Tests

The paper pattern, duration of the paper and the number of questions to be attempted in the given amount of time is not something you will be able to pick up on the day of the examination. A mock test judges student’s abilities as it not only provides a similar feel of the real exam but also helps in building speed and confidence to face the exam. Furthermore, mock tests will improve your performance in the exam, which will give you an extra edge in the actual exam.
