Planning Well

Candidates are advised to plan and strategize very well before starting the preparation process for KCET 2022 exam. They will have to strategize a very clear plan and make sure to abide by the plan while preparing. Making a clear plan and following the same will help candidates not deviate from the course of preparation.

Knowing the Topics

Candidates are required to know the topics very well. They should go through the topics of the subjects and learn the concepts in order. This way they will be able to remember the answers and concepts very well and will be able to answer the questions in the exam. Another important aspect of topic-wise preparation is that candidates can strategize and plan their preparation according to the difficulty of the topics or the questions. They will be able to categorize topics based on their difficulty.

Attend the Known Questions

Candidates should keep in mind to attend to the questions that they are very familiar with first before attempting doubtful and unfamiliar ones. This way they will not have to waste unnecessary time on unfamiliar questions and safeguard themselves by attending to and completing the known questions first.

Time Optimization

Candidates should practise attending to the questions by setting up time limits with the help of a stopwatch. This way they can optimize and utilize time very efficiently and manage to attend to all the questions in the exam within the allotted time. Being time efficient also helps the candidates to know how much time would be required to prepare and attend the exam. This way they will be able to save time in case of questions and sections that can be easily attended.

Mock Test

The candidates should practice attending mock tests with the help of a stopwatch. They can replicate exactly the way the exam is attended and try finishing the exam within the given time. It will not only enhance the time efficiency of the candidates but also improve their answering skills. Along with time efficiency, candidates will also be aware of the type of questions and their distribution in the exam.
