Preparing for CUET 2023: Tips and Tricks
The Common University Entrance Test (CUET) is an exam that will be conducted for admission into undergraduate programmes in all central universities under the Ministry of Education (MoE) from the academic session 2023-24. The CUET aims to provide a common platform and equal opportunities to candidates across the country who aspire to pursue higher education in various disciplines. The CUET will be a computer-based test that will assess the candidates' aptitude, reasoning, general awareness, language proficiency and their knowledge of specific subjects they wish to study further.

If you are planning to appear for CUET 2023, you need to start your preparation early and follow some effective tips and tricks to ace the exam. Here are some of them:


Know the syllabus and exam pattern:

The first step to preparing for CUET 2023 is to familiarise yourself with the syllabus and exam pattern.  You can find the detailed syllabus for each subject on the official website of CUET: https://cuet.samarth.ac.in/

The exam will have four sections:

Section 1(A) - Languages

Section 1(B) - Languages

Section 2 - Domain-Specific Subject

Section 3 - General Test

Based on the subjects you pick for the first three sections, make sure to download and thoroughly examine the syllabus for each.

Make a study plan:

Once you know the syllabus and exam pattern, you need to make a realistic and effective study plan that covers all the topics and concepts in a systematic manner. Allocate sufficient time for each section and subject, as well as for revision and practice. You also need to set short-term and long-term goals and track your progress regularly. Use online tools or apps to create and manage your study plan.

Strengthen your basics:

The key to scoring well in CUET 2023 is to have a strong grasp of the basic concepts and principles of each subject. You need to clear your doubts and clarify your concepts by referring to reliable sources such as NCERT books, standard textbooks, online lectures or videos, etc. You also need to practice solving different types of questions from various sources such as previous year's papers, mock tests, sample papers and more.

Improve your speed and accuracy:

Another important aspect of preparing for CUET 2023 is to improve your speed and accuracy while solving problems. Develop your time management skills and learn how to attempt questions in a smart way. Additionally, identify your strengths and weaknesses and focus more on your weak areas. Also, try to avoid guesswork and silly mistakes that can cost you marks. You can improve your speed and accuracy by taking regular mock tests, solving previous year's papers, analysing your performance and working on your errors.

Enhance your general awareness:

One of the sections that can make a difference in your score in CUET 2023 is Section 3, which will consist of questions related to General Awareness (GA). This section will test your knowledge of current affairs, general knowledge, static GK, etc. You can enhance your general awareness by reading newspapers, magazines, journals and blogs on a daily basis. Follow reliable sources, such as websites, apps and podcasts, that provide updates on various topics, such as national and international events, sports, awards, books and personalities. A simple way to catch up on the news would be to activate notifications for news apps on your phone.

List Out The Colleges You Wish To Target:

The ultimate goal of giving the exam is to get into the college of your choice. Therefore, listing out the universities and colleges as well as the course you wish to pursue, should be a priority. By creating a comprehensive list, you can evaluate the previous year’s cut-off lists and the score required to get into a particular course and college.

Stay positive and confident:

Last but not least, you need to stay positive and confident throughout your preparation journey for CUET 2023. You should also add rest to your list of daily tasks for preparation, as a well-rested mind tends to perform better.

We hope these simple tips will help you prepare for the upcoming CUET 2023 in an efficient and effective way.
