Now, let’s learn about how to study for UPSEE 2018 in the last months.

How to study for UPSEE 2018 in last months:

  • Focus on Important Topics: To succeed at UPSEE 2018, you must get your priorities right. Focus on the important topics and practice them with UPSEE last years’ question papers.
  • Understand the Concepts: While preparing for UPSEE even if you can’t cover the entire syllabus make sure you understand the basic concepts and solve as many problems as you can by applying the fundamentals. This exercise will boost your confidence and once you know the concepts, you can solve any problem on exam day.
  • NCERT Books are Important: You must be thorough with your syllabus of Class XI and XII (or the equivalent course). In Mathematics, get a grip on Algebra, Calculus, and other vital portions. You must also master Organic and Physical part of Chemistry and for Physics, the whole NCERT problems and theories need to be studied. Once your basic principles of these subjects are sound, you can attempt any question with confidence
  • Time-Management: If you are already preparing for exams like JEE and BITSAT, then UPSEE should be comparatively easier in terms of the level of difficulty. However, time management plays an important role in the examination. Hence, working out all the problems by keeping track of the time taken to solve them will train you better. You should aim at a solving rate of one problem per minute.
  • Work Smart: The Last Few Days of UPSEE are really crucial. You must revise the formulae and important concepts thoroughly. Start with the chapters mentioned above which will greatly contribute to covering the major portion of the question paper. The exam doesn’t emphasize too much on the difficulty of the problem but rather on the questions that are straightforward, which require attention to the recollect formulae.
  • Focus on Prepared Topics First: Know the syllabus of the exam by heart and prepare the topics you are uncomfortable only after gaining confidence in the topics that you are comfortable with.
  • Exam Simulation: Train your mind to fit the requirements of the exam conditions. You must solve one or two practice papers with the time limit in the last few days leading to the UPSEE exam. Doing so will help you identify the sections which are more time consuming and the ones that are relatively easier. You can then practice working on your improvement areas.
  • Stay Healthy: Regular practice and revision is a must to succeed at UPSEE 2018 but you must also maintain a healthy lifestyle in the coming months and get at least 8 hours of sleep every day. Taking care of your health and staying calm and positive will help increase your concentration.
