COMEDK Preparation Strategy
Students are expected to make a proper study plan and follow a strategy to clear COMEDK 2021. Over one lakh students compete for some thousand lucrative seats. Proper planning and time management plays an important role in cracking the exam. Below are strategies and tips for candidates aspiring to take admission in COMEDK affiliated colleges.
Go through the entire syllabus
Students are advised to first go through the entire syllabus of the subjects, that is PCB for medical courses while PCM for engineering courses. As every student is familiar, not every chapter or topic carries equal weightage, candidates should make a priority list of topics as per their weightage in the COMEDK examination.
COMEDK official website contains all the relevant and required statistics concerning the syllabus of the course. Making a priority list, along with a timeline for completion of the entire syllabus not only will give you a proper path but will also increase your chances of scoring a good score even if you are not able to complete the entire syllabus before the exam date. But please keep in mind that several chapters are interrelated to each other and hence serve as prerequisites to others.
Making short and specific notes of important points, theories, formulae, equations etc is a vital part of preparation strategy. Proper concise notes not only help in revising the topic later on but also helps the student in grasping the topic.
Solve practice problems and previous year paper
The ancient and golden proverb, “Practice makes a man perfect” holds here also. Aspirants are advised to solve as many questions as possible for every chapter they complete. Students can buy books specifically designed for COMEDK 2021, published by any distinguished publisher that would contain a variety of questions from every topic as per the exams outline. Competitive exams check your problem-solving ability and not necessarily your theoretical knowledge of the topic. Try to optimise the time you have to understand the topic and its subtopics as well as practice as many questions as possible.
Students must download previous year papers from the official website and solve them to get a glimpse of how questions actually asked in exams.
Attempt Mock Test Papers
Applicants can purchase test series or mock test papers from reputed coaching institutes/publishers and attempt mock tests regularly. Solving the mock tests not only boosts confidence but also helps candidates analyse exactly where they stand in absolute and relative scale. It is advised that students should make a habit of solving mock tests daily after they have finished around ⅓ of the syllabus. Solving mock tests will put students in a better position to attempt the real exam. Apart from this, solving mock-papers also helps the candidates in understanding the important aspects of a competitive exam that is time management and assessing the difficulty level of the paper.
To summarise, COMEDK 2021 preparation will require proper planning along with tons of hard work.. While learning and reading the chapters remain important to get a proper understanding, aspirants should never forget the importance of problem solving, which plays a crucial role in understanding the essence of the subject. As described above, practice not only makes students more confident but also helps analyze their problem-solving approach.
