Can I Crack CUET 2022 if I Start Preparing Now?

Yes, you can crack CUET 2022 if you start preparing right now. Study as per CUET syllabus, whether reading theory or solving problems. Read from your class 12 textbooks for domain specific subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Math and Biology. Avoid using multiple reference books and material at this point of time. If you are also preparing for JEE/ NEET, you can join a short online crash course for JEE or NEET to learn important topics, problem solving tricks and doubt clearing for CUET.

How to Start Preparing for CUET 2022?

Here are the tips to start preparing for CUET 2022.

  • Print the syllabus of CUET and keep it with you till the exam.
  • Choose the books (class 12 textbook) and material required for CUET preparation.
  • Identify your best study times and make a timetable accordingly.
  • Remove all unnecessary distractions and make a habit of studying every day at the same time.
  • Revise your class 12 syllabus from the start, for the subjects you are applying.
  • Analyse your tests and learn from mistakes.
  • Stay disciplined and consistent.

CUET 2022 Study Plan and Preparation Strategy

  • Prepare and follow a daily study schedule covering all the tests you are taking.
  • Improve your speed and accuracy for scoring good marks in CUET. Accuracy comes from strong theoretical understanding, while speed comes with practicing MCQs.
  • First read the theory part and then practice problems. It’s the way to understand concepts in a better way. If you are not able to solve a problem, read the theory again and again till you get the feel of the topic.
  • Do not leave any topic that you feel unimportant for the exam. Questions in CUET can come from any topic in the syllabus.
  • Write notes along with your studies. You can add important points, shortcuts, formulas, reactions, mistakes, etc. Notes will help you in revision.
  • Never feel depressed if you are unable to solve questions of a specific topic or a subject. Put all your efforts and hard work to understand the theory and again solve the problems.
  • Manage your time well between studies and other tasks. Long continuous study hours can bring exhaustion and too many breaks may result in not being able to complete your work in time.
  • Take proper sleep. Most of the time we get so ambitious that we do not give proper rest to our body. If you are disturbing your sleep cycle then you’ll end up feeling sleepy throughout the day. So no matter what, you need 6–8 hours of sleep to get the best out of yourself.

Subject-wise Study Tips for CUET 2022

Physics

Understanding the concepts and practicing problems is the key to score well in Physics. Start with simple problems and then move on to more difficult problems. Solving problems help you gain clear knowledge about the concept. The more you practice Physics and analyse your mistakes, the better for you.

Maintain a separate copy for formulas. Revise them regularly.

Chemistry

In Organic Chemistry, understand the concepts and reaction mechanism well. Make notes while you study each chapter. Keep thinking of reactions and mechanisms in your free time. It helps in revision.

Improve your speed in Physical Chemistry by consistently solving problems. Prepare a list of formulas and reactions from the start and have a glance at them often so that you can remember them whenever you are solving problems or giving tests.

Inorganic Chemistry requires lots of reading from NCERT and revision. Make proper notes along the way.

Mathematics

Mathematics is an art and requires a lot of practice. The more you study and practice Math, the more it develops your brain and increases your problem solving ability.

In Math, be careful about calculations and time management. The concepts and formulas should be at your fingertips. Know every shortcut possible.

Biology

Read NCERT (school textbook) very very thoroughly. Make notes from the start and keep revising Biology from time to time. Some chapters require very deep understanding, some require memorization. Focus on both the aspects.

Practicing MCQs is equally important in Biology as it is in Physics and Chemistry. In the exam, there are more chances of you not remembering what you read than remembering what you practiced.
