How to prepare for AIMA UGAT?

There are three things that any candidate should have if they are preparing for AIMA UGAT exam or any entrance exam for that matter. They are determination, patience and perseverance. The strong determination to crack the exam at any cost, enormous patience to go through the journey of preparation to achieve the goal and finally the perseverance to not be disappointed when facing difficulties along the way. To cultivate these three things before you start your preparation:

Create a Custom Timetable

The first and the most important step in an entrance exam preparation is the preparation of a custom schedule. That custom schedule is such a way that it provides the most efficient sessions for preparations from parts of your daily routines. The schedules must include time for solving sample papers and also periodic sessions for revisions of completed topics. Once you have created a good schedule you need to stick to the schedule till the AIMA UGAT 2020 exam is finished.

Speed and Accuracy Matters

The AIMA UGAT exam contains 130 questions that are to be answered in a time frame of 2 hours. That means on average you have less than a minute to answer each of the questions. All the questions may be relatively easy but the real challenge lies in getting through all of the questions in that less time. So you need to answer the questions accurately and go through them without looking back in doubt. This speed and accuracy can only be cultivated with the help of intense practising of mock tests and practice papers. Find and solve every paper you can get your hands upon.

Section Wise Approach

There are a total of 4 sections in the AIMA UGAT Exam. In the preparation process, you need to find out the sections you are more strong and in which sections you need a little more practice. Also, during the exam, you need to make sure that you finish the sections that you are strong much quicker so that you could transfer that extra time earned to the sections that you need to take more time. Remember that there will be sectional cutoffs and you need to clear each and every one of those cutoffs to crack the exam.
