Preparation Tips for COMEDK

  • Make a Timetable: Before you start preparing for COMEDK 2019, make sure you’re familiar with the syllabus and the pattern of the examination. Now, make a study schedule in a way that lets you allocate equal time to all subjects. Put more emphasis on areas you’re weak at and try to improve on them.

  • Practice Diligently: To do well in COMEDK, regular practice is a must. Subjects like Mathematics need it and you may not be able to solve the same problem if you take regular breaks. Regular practice will also increase your speed and accuracy which are essential for succeeding in competitive exams. Toppr provides you the perfect solution to your need for new practice questions. Check out our question bank, where questions will be put forward to you in a logical sequence of concepts.
  • Solve Previous Years’ Papers: Make sure you take enough mock tests and practice previous years’ papers as much as you can. This will help you understand the type of questions asked and the time you need to solve them. Simulating the exam environment will also make you aware of your strengths and weaknesses. If you’re taking more time in a particular section, then you can strengthen that section for a better score in the examination.
  • Use e-learning apps: It’s a good idea to use e-learning apps to prepare for COMEDK. These apps will provide you the proper guidance, and the tips and tricks to succeed at COMEDK.
