UIIC 2017 Mains – Tips for the Exams
- Get the basics clear
Get a strong hold of the basics for each topic. Study concepts in order, especially for the numerical ability section as many topics are interconnected.
- Stick to your study plan
You might be already following a study plan. As the last few days are very important, ensure that you stick to it. Do not skip any section and focus on areas that you are less confident at. Include revision and practice tests during the last few days so that you get an edge over the topics.
- Online Mock Tests & Analysis
As mentioned above, practice as many mock tests you can during the last few days. Try to attempt 1 full-length UIIC mock test daily, if possible. After every mock, do an analysis of speed and knowledge. Practice the questions you couldn’t crack again and again. Spend some extra study hours on topics that you are finding difficult to solve. Analysing mock tests will also help you identify your strong and weaker areas. Thus, you will be able to pick topics to attempt in the exam easily.
- Time Management
Time management is important for every competitive exam and UIIC Mains is no exception. You need to clear the sectional as well as overall cut off for the exam. Besides, there is negative marking for every wrong answer. Therefore, answer carefully and only if you are confident. Pick easy and less time-consuming topics so that you can score more numbers and then move on to the rest. Reasoning and Numerical Ability are the most time-consuming sections. To stay in the safer side, plan few extra minutes for both these sections. While you are practicing the mock tests, focus and try to improve your speed and accuracy.
