May 23, 2022 09:16 IST

CUET has come up as a surprise to the students. All 12th grade students who are taking board examinations must now take another exam in order to pursue Undergraduate courses at one of India's nearly 54 Universities. Class 12th percentage is no longer a deciding element in college admissions.

Now that the students have a chance to study in their dream college, they must prepare well to not miss out on this chance to score the best in CUET. Many famous and prestigious universities such as DU, BHU, JNU, AMU, etc are participating in the CUET UG 2022. The exam is a new one hence no one is well aware about the level and the exact pattern. As a result, selecting the best CUET books for final preparation, grasping topics and achieving the target score is critical. Here, an expert can guide the best. Hence, for a first-rate preparation, CUET books by MTG, a National Level publisher, are highly recommended. With a readership of more than 1 Cr readers and year on year excellent results in various competitive exams like NEET, JEE, NTSE, Olympiads, editorial team of MTG understands the examiners mind best.  

We've compiled a list of the most important considerations for students taking the newly introduced CUET exam. 

1. Figure Out the CUET Exam Information
Immediately after the board exams, thoroughly understand what CUET is and what will be the exam format, pattern, and syllabus. Every student must understand the exam structure and the universities that participate in CUET and their conditions. They should keep an eagle’s eye on all the CUET latest updates. A series of insightful blogs are available on MTG BLOG website to provide complete information on these things related to CUET.

2. Understand the CUET syllabus
The students need not worry since the exam will be based solely on the class 12 NCERT syllabus. Therefore, students must understand the requirements of each section and examine the priorities, and marks for each topic. Students may note that they will be required to pick subjects in the CUET exam depending on the course they wish to pursue in his/her dream university. If they are unfamiliar with this, they won't be able to distinguish which subjects to put their mind on. They must decide on the course they wish to pursue and the subjects they will pick for the exam to start working on it.

3. CUET Exam Pattern
In CUET, there will be three sections.
Section 1 will test the language proficiency,
Section 2 will check the subject proficiency
Section 3 will check the overall aptitude of the students.
Here Language and subject is what students are already familiar with while preparing for Boards exams. Section 3 is not a curriculum-based section. Hence, all students need to have more familiarity with the content of this section. MTG's General Test Book for CUET is a good option for getting the best practise for this segment, as it is based on the most recent exam pattern and could be their direct route to victory.

4. Make & Follow a Time Table
As students are already deep in preparing for board exams, CUET will follow soon enough. Students will be left with approximately one month after their board exams. Thus, they must put more efforts on question solving. They must create a timetable that will provide them a proper mix of concept revision and practice questions. 

5. Revise & Practice with the Best CUET Books
Thorough and rigorous practice is crucial for students because their concepts need to be sharp for this exam. Also, they need to become familiar with every concept to avoid surprises in CUET. Therefore, it is suggested that they study from CUET books that prepare them separately for each CUET section. The CUET sample papers and standalone question bank books by MTG will help them examine their weak areas and strengths for each section. These books cover all typologies of questions and empower students to take any sort of challenging question in the exam. 

Though these suggestions seem quite common but following the same will give you best results. Give a kickstart to your CUET preparation right away in the right way. All the best!
