Ques. Rate the role of Coaching Institutes in cracking UPSEE

Ans. I would say coaching does help in cracking UPSEE. So, I would rate it at 7.     

Ques. How did you manage UPSEE Preparation along with your Class 12th exam?

Ans. UPSEE Syllabus is not much different from CBSE board syllabus. NCERT books are best for these preparations. So, I didn't face any problems in preparing for both exams at same time.

Syllabus of 11th and 12th from NCERT books is sufficient for preparing for UPSEE.

Ques. What were your Strong and Weak areas? How did you prepare and what special efforts did you put for improving them?

Ans. For any science student, it has been seen that they considers chemistry as a mugging subject. But if we seriously take it, then chemistry is really a scoring subject.

I also did it. I didn't study chemistry seriously. Mugging was a problem for me. But coaching teachers motivated me to study and give equal time to every subject so that I could perform well in each subject.

I started to find logic in every chemistry problem, and this helped me a lot in remembering chemistry lessons. Logical reasoning is strong point for me and this helped me a lot in scoring better.

Ques. What mock papers did you take?

Ans. I used to give regular mock test papers in coaching as well as online mock test papers also. I joined Narayana test paper series also to improve my practicing habit, which helped me to do UPSEE lengthy paper in accurate time.

Ques. Write some of the Preparation tips for someone who is starting 4 months before the exam?

Ans. Before 4 months, he would have a good time period to study and revise whole syllabus. Firstly, he should have well prepared notes and important questions solved papers. This will help him a lot during last time for revision of whole syllabus.

Last minute revision matters a lot in these type of exams. In UPSEE Exams, questions are generally formula based, so it is must to remember each and every important formula before the exam."       

Ques. Physics: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section.

Ans. For physics, generally teachers’ advice is for HC Verma (especially for IIT-JEE), NCERT books and coaching notes. Practices numericals as well as theoretical questions. In physics, practice matters a lot.

Ques. Chemistry: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section         

Ans. For chemistry, NCERT books are known as the best books for preparations. Coaching notes are also helpful for organic chemistry, while for inorganic part, practice is required.

Ques. Mathematics: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section.    

Ans. For mathematics, NCERT books are actually insufficient. Different books like RD Sharma, RS Agrawal are good books known for preparation. These book have a lot of variety question which makes a student able to solve each and every type of questions.

For mathematics, smartness in solving questions is required perfectly because it takes a lot of time than chemistry and physics.

Ques. What are the things you would like to go back in time and change to get into a better college?

Ans. I should have revised my whole syllabus at least one more time so that I could attempt more questions.
