How to prepare for UPESMET?

While preparing for UPESMET or any other entrance exam for that matter there are three important characteristics you must be possessing. They are determination, patience, and perseverance. You should be having a strong determination to qualify in the exam, enormous patience to do all the work that needs to be done in the process of exam preparation, and finally the perseverance to go through even when facing difficulties. If you are sure that you have all these three then you can rest assured that you have already cracked the exam. Follow the steps below to know how to prepare for the exam.

Create a Custom Timetable

The first thing you need to do is construct a good time table for your preparation schedule. While preparing the schedule you should make sure that the schedule provides the most efficient sessions for preparation from your day to day routine. You need to break the whole syllabus of the exam into equal parts and divide them evenly in your preparation schedule. This way you would be covering the entire syllabus without missing out on any of them. Also, the schedule must include time for solving sample papers and also a periodic session for revision of completed topics. Stick to that schedule until you clear the exam.

Speed and Accuracy Matters

The UPES MET exam contains 140 questions that are to be answered in 2 hours 30 minutes. You need to answer the questions at a very quick pace. The questions would be relatively easier to answer but the real challenge lies in going through all of the questions within that given period. The only possible way to approach the questions in this exam is to answer as accurately as possible so that you will not look back in doubt. With the help of intense practising of mock tests and sample papers, you can develop this speed and accuracy.

Section Wise Approach

The UPESMET exam consists of 4 sections in total. During preparation, you need to self assess and find out which sections are you strong in and which sections you are not. This will help you strategize your approach to the question paper on the day of the exam. You need to solve the sections that you are good at the start so that you will have some extra time to transfer onto the sections that you need to work harder.
