How to prepare

How to Prepare for AMUEE 2018

Before appearing for AMUEE 2018, it is indeed important for you to prepare for the exam effectively. Following the below tips and tricks may help you prepare well for the entrance exam.

Rote Learning:

While preparing for AMUEE, it's better to shift your focus to understanding  concepts rather than rote learning, as it is not possible to remember each and every topic/sub-topic by heart. In addition, you should also try to solve complex questions that could enhance your concept-clarity.

Speed and Accuracy:

One of the most important ways to prepare for AMUEE  is to keep a tab on your speed and accuracy. To enhance your speed and accuracy, take various mock tests and practice as many sample papers as you can. Practicing well  can boost your thinking skills and accuracy of solving questions.

Always Note Down Your Mistakes:

  • While studying for an exam like AMUEE, you must try to keep a track of your mistakes so that 
  • you can dedicate more time to your weak areas. Also, by noting down your mistakes, 
  • you get to know your level of preparation for the entrance exam. 

Read the Exam Questions Cautiously:

In the exam hall, you must read all the questions carefully. Reading questions carefully help your focus on the question and you can then answer with great concentration that may help you cut-down on silly mistakes.

Duration : 2 Hours
