CUSAT CAT B. TECH 2017 Preparation Tips

While preparing for CUSAT CAT Engineering 2017 there are several mistakes that a candidate might make. It is necessary to keep yourself calm minded and focused while preparing as well as attempting the test. Here are some tips to prepare for CUSAT CAT Engineering 2017 and a list of some Dos and Don’ts is given below:

List of DOs

  • Candidates must join a good coaching class to prepare for CUSAT CAT B. Tech. 2017 to get some additional tips and tricks of preparation and success in CUSAT CAT B. Tech. Engineering Exam.
  • It is important to study on a regular basis to keep in touch with the topics covered in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry in class 11 and class 12.
  • Candidates must solve previous year question papers to excel in the CUSAT CAT B. Tech. 2017 test.
  • Regular practice from the sample papers and previous year question papers will be beneficial for the candidates appearing for CUSAT CAT B. Tech. 2017. It not only gives the idea of the type of questions that might be asked in the question paper but also helps in knowing the capabilities of the candidate himself/herself.
  • Candidate must not exhaust himself/herself too much immediately before the commencement of the exam. This may lead to serious consequences while candidate appears for the exam.

List of DON’Ts

  • Cramming- candidates are advised to get rid of the habit of mugging up each and every topic just before giving the examination. It not only confuses you but also lowers the confidence and ups the stress level just before the examination. It is necessary to be calm and confident while candidate appears for the exam.
  • Panicking- it is quite natural that a candidate might panic just before appearing for the exam and the possible reason could be cramming as mentioned earlier. Also, if candidate feels under prepared he/she must clear his/her mind and be confident of  whatever he/she has prepared and not get affected what others have been preparing for.
  • Studying Selective Topics- it is very important to study each and every topic carefully. Candidates must start preparing for CUSAT CAT B. Tech. 2017 beforehand. If the candidate does not prepare or study every topic he/she might be facing the consequences while attempting the questions. It would be playing with one’s own future if a candidate himself/herself chooses not to prepare fully and study selective topics.
  • Studying for Long Hours- This is the most common mistake that every candidate might make. It is very important to take breaks at short intervals of time to refresh yourself. It is scientifically proved that a human brain cannot concentrate for too long a period. To grasp the topics efficiently, candidate must indulge in recreational activities and take short breaks at regular intervals.
