Once the application has been registered and the admit cards are available for the students to download, the most genuine step that we see next is to start preparing for the exam. However, preparing for such exams like KCET 2017 may not be easy for the candidates.

Therefore, we have curated a list of must do’s and don’t for the preparation of the exam.

Tip 1. Read the syllabus.

The complete details for the syllabus can be accessed through the e-brochure to which the link is available above.

It is often noticed that candidates expect all the entrance exams bearing the same syllabus to be somewhat similar to each other. However, it may not be the case. Read the syllabus carefully as the syllabus topics may be same but their mark distribution may not be the as the others. For instance if a test assigns 35 questions from quantitative aptitude, the others might only ask 15 questions from biology topic. In such cases it will be inappropriate to stress or emphasize on one topic for longer durations. Therefore read the syllabus.

Tip 2. Happy to make your acquaintance.

It is better to practice a test or mock test as per the test timing. For instance if the exam is conducted between 10:30 to 2:30. Then take a test during that time so that you will get acquainted with the atmosphere of that duration and time.

Tip 3. It makes sense.

Your practice will only make sense if you are able to express it in words on the exam day. Sometimes we practice our subjects three to four months earlier and by the time our exams draw near we tend to forget all we have learned. The more practice the more solutions. However it is necessary to find right solutions that will save your irreducible amount of time.

Tip 4. Reading the margins.

As many books you read, it will not be a problem as long as you have understood them all. Mark a note on every page with important points written on the top of the page or stick a color note. This will help you the sifting through each page. Use different colors for each chapter and spare them on the edge of the book.

Tip 5. Lost and Found.

Students have been often seen using spare papers to note down their points and often misplace them when not kept in place.

Use only two notebooks at the most. One for practice and one for finalising your formulas.

Divide the sections of the notebook. If your spare paper do have some important points, you can either staple them or paste them in one place.

TIP 6. Divide and Rule.

If we begin to talk about this particular section, there is lot more to discuss that needs attention from the candidates. Here we suggest our readers to not only divide their subjects as per the syllabus but divide the internal units as well. For example physics, biology, chemistry all these subjects has divisions in topics. Some divisions are more important than the others. Candidates need to identify which units have regularly appeared in the exam. This task can be achieved by looking at the previous year question papers and mock tests. One can practice these mock tests available online and in books. As more you practice you will gain an idea of the questions that have reoccurring over the past five years or so.

TIP 7. Practice Only 10 years.

The practice paper or the mock test should not be more than 10 years old. Get your hands on the latest mock tests for practice. This is not enough practice but it is usually enough for the candidates to get them a clear insight as to which topic is more important and which one is not. Practice those topics regularly as per your suitability. We usually advise our students to spend at least 2 hours for one subject but since the exam date is so near you must put in at least 3-4 hours for one subject. However you must remember that this time for practice must not be clubbed with your revision time. Allow yourself to revise the subjects on weekends most preferably on Sundays.
