Tips and Tricks for UP TGT 2021
- Set your priorities right
Now your priority must be cracking the exam and becoming a govt employee. You must focus on building your career, everything else can come later. Set everything aside for one month and study for up to 14 hours a day. Your routine should be eating, sleep, study and repeat. You have to have a routine like this if you want to succeed. Remember lakhs of candidates appear for these exams every year, cracking the exam is not a walk in the park. You need to put in real effort.
- Previous years question papers
Nothing makes you more familiar with the exam pattern than the question papers themselves. Collect previous years question papers and start timing yourself. See how fast you can solve the questions and how long does it take for you to finish one paper. This will increase your speed and help you to ace the test.
Yes, having a healthy diet is necessary when you are preparing for your exams. Having lots of junk food is not good for your digestive system. Junk food usually causes a lot of indigestion and when you are not feeling well you cannot think clearly and you will not be able to give your best. This will affect your scores. So it’s better to start dieting long before the exam.
Include vitamin supplements in your diet, drinks lots of water and add lots of green leafy vegetables to your food intake.
- Mock tests
Mock tests are a great way to prepare for the upcoming exams. The question papers give you a feel of what it will be like to sit for the exam. The more familiar you get with the paper, the more confident you will become and this confidence will help you to ace the test.
- Refer to NCERT books
Some people will tell you to refer to as many books as possible. Do not make that mistake. Referring to multiple books will just increase your confusion. Get the NCERT books either from a bookstore or from an online store and get started. One thing to remember when you are buying the NCERT books is that you must always get the latest edition. The syllabus may change or few things may get added here and there and the latest is usually up to date with all the latest changes.
- Highlight the points
Highlighting the major points when you are preparing helps you to revise when you are in a hurry or you are making a last-minute revision. You do not have enough time to go over the entire chapter, so you can just scan the main points.
Just because you have finished a section does not mean that you stop revising it. You must continue revising so that you do not forget the answers in the examination hall.
Also, it is very important to catch up on sleep. Take a nap whenever you are taking a break. This gives your brain much-needed rest. The exam preparation time is extremely stressful, so you need to follow a routine that allows you to take short naps in between to recharge yourself.
