How to Prepare for the CUET 2023 Exam in the Last 7 Days

In the last month of studying for any competitive exam, you should spend most of your time going over what you already know and not learning anything new. But this is easier to say than to do. Board exams for CBSE and ICSE take up half of June, which makes it hard to focus on just entrance exams. The CUET 2023 is one of the toughest exams to get into college in the country. Candidates with good mental health, a good plan, and a lot of practise are likely to excel in the exam. Check out the CUET preparation study material curated by Prep Guruu which is India's Best CUET Coaching Institute.

The Common University Entrance Test (CUET) 2023 is expected to be in the second week of June 2023, and close to 20 lakh students have signed up to get into top colleges and universities. With so many people applying, students need to do everything they can to get a high score and improve their chances of getting into the stream and college they want.

This can only be done with good planning, strategy, time management, and study materials. Students who have all of these things will be ahead of the other students. But if you don't know how to connect all the dots in a logical way, this blog will help you come up with a plan for the last few days of getting ready for CUET 2023. There will be three parts to the CUET in 2023.

  • Section 1 is for the language test, which has two parts: 1A and 1B.
  • Section 2 is a Domain Specific Test: Arts/Humanities, Commerce, and Science
  • Section 3 is a General Test that includes General Knowledge, Current Affairs, Numerical Ability, General Ability, Quantitative Reasoning, and Logical and Analytical Reasoning.

Section Wise Strategy for CUET 2023

1. Language Section

No matter what language you choose, you must study for Vocabulary, Antonyms and Synonyms, Reading Comprehension (RC), Verbal Ability, Choosing the Right Word, and Rearranging the Parts of a Sentence or Passage.

Vocabulary, Antonyms & Synonyms 

This is the one part that can't be built in just a few days of planning. But if you want a quick way to deal with this, try focusing on the questions that have already been asked and working on antonyms and synonyms. This will help you find new words and think of their opposites and other words that mean the same thing. If you already read a lot of books and other similar things, this part will be pretty easy to get ready for.

Reading Comprehension (RC)

Work on your reading speed so you can quickly understand the passage and move on to the questions. Reading comprehension questions are often based on stories, poems, or facts. If you can read and understand faster, it will be easy to save time for other parts. If you read a newspaper or other journal every day, it might help you keep going and figure out how good you are.

Verbal Ability

To pass this section, you need to be able to say what you think in a clear and direct way. To learn how to improve your ability to tell a story, you should pick a specific topic and search for it on other websites. Then, look at how each writer has described the same situation in their own way. Also, you must have a good vocabulary and know how to choose words. If your sentences are well-written, easy to understand, and use the right words, you've already won half the battle.

Selecting the correct word/Rearranging a sentence or a phrase

As was said above, your reading habits will help you answer most of the questions. Again, you won't have much trouble with this section if you know how to describe things in different ways and if you know how to use antonyms and synonyms. So, the only way to solve this without taking a short cut is to read.

2. Domain-Specific & General Test Section

We're not going to talk about how you should cover each topic as a whole in these two sections. But we've put together a list of habits that might help you plan better and use your time in the best way to get better results.

A Structured Revision Plan

With only a few days left until the entrance test, it's not a good idea to pick a new topic and jump right into it. You should instead focus on your strengths by making a schedule that emphasises the things you already know. Your last few days should be spent making them strong, practising questions from each topic, and clearing up any questions you might have. Don't let other people's plans change yours at the last minute. Instead, stick to what you know is a good plan.

Sticking to Your Schedule

Most candidates make a detailed plan of what they will do. But many people don't do that. This is one of the most common mistakes students make when they don't do well on tests like the CUET. Commitment will get you going, but commitment will get you where you want to go. One must remember this and stick to the plan that has been made.

Learning the Art of Time Management

Time is what matters. With only seven days left, you can't spend two to three hours on one subject. Follow a step-by-step plan in which you set a fixed amount of time for each topic. You shouldn't just spend your time going over the topic again and again; you should also try to answer questions from last year. When working on CUET question papers from the previous year, you should look at yourself to see where you spend the most time and what your strengths are that help you. You should always try to cut down the time it takes to answer each question on each exam paper.

Introduce Yourself to Pomodoro Approach

In this method, you set a timer for a certain task and try to finish it before the timer goes off. Students who have trouble staying focused for long periods of time should use the Pomodoro technique. In a world full of distractions, it's already hard to do something without getting sidetracked, and you have to start with this method to get good at it on your own time.

Mental Balance

When we talk about mental balance, we mean getting enough rest, staying away from negative thoughts, focusing on what's important, and taking full control of yourself. To master this, people who want to take the CUET in 2023 should make sure to get enough rest and avoid doing things that might lead to negative thoughts or other distractions. To get mental peace and balance, it's also important to work on building your confidence. You can do this by not taking on any new topics that might shake your confidence, taking part in test series to find out which parts you already know well, getting good feedback, and working on the parts that just need a little polishing to get ahead.
