## KCET Reference Books

KCET Reference books contain all the useful information in a very organised manner which contains the entire information about each topic in the subject. Candidates can refer to the reference books along with the KCET 2021 syllabus whenever they are stuck while reading or understanding something. With the help of reference books, candidates can develop a clear concept about the topics. It enriches the knowledge of the candidates and candidates can refer them as required. For the question which is based on problem-solving, reference books can help a lot and candidates will be able to find the answers quickly. Reference books of KCET also give lots of problems on a single topic which enables the candidates to practice lots of problems for the preparation of many entrance exams.

## KCET Exam Pattern

Knowing the exam pattern will be very useful for the candidates who are doing the preparation of KCET 2021. Candidates will get aware of may things such as the marking scheme of the entrance exam, types of questions that are asked in recent years, the paper structure of KCET exam, and also the time allotted for the entire exam. Also, candidates will learn from which topics/subjects answering the maximum number of questions will secure more marks. The KCET exam pattern includes a total of four sections namely Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics. The time duration of each paper is 1 hour 20 minutes for KCET 2021. The total time duration is 320 minutes for the whole exam. Each section will be given 80 minutes. Candidates can also prepare for the exam by taking reference of both KCET 2021 syllabus and the exam pattern of KCET.

## KCET Preparation Tips

Before starting preparation, the candidate should have thorough knowledge about the KCET 2021 syllabus. After knowing the syllabus, the next thing is to get knowledge about the exam pattern. Different topics have different weightage, thus priority should be given, based on their respective weightage. Also, preparation for an exam is not fruitful if the candidates are not following a definite structure. Thus, they need to create a proper schedule that is suitable for the day to day life. It should incorporate the equal distribution of study sessions for each subject, some time for solving previous year papers, and most importantly periodic revisions.
