SET Preparation Tips for General English

  • Reading is the solution to ace the English section. Do read books, magazines, newspapers, etc. You can choose the books/ magazines you find interesting if you find reading boring. Whenever you come across an unknown word, look it up in a dictionary and maintain a notebook for new words.
  • When it comes to building a better vocabulary, try to understand the root meaning of similar types of words. Learn the meaning of suffixes or prefixes and find out more about the etymology of the word. There are many words that mean something entirely different when the context is changed, so focus on its origins usage, content, philology.
  • Practice makes perfect, and this holds especially true for the English section. Candidates can start the preparation of SET by practicing and understanding the fundamentals. Understand the basics and learn the definitions with examples. Remember that questions like editing, omission, or one-word substitution are common in grammar questions.
  • Developing the speed of your reading habit as this skill will prove to be very useful during the exam. The idea is to read faster at a limited time and answer the questions correctly without having to reread the passage.
  • Keep on revising. This is an important point to ace any exam since most of us try to absorb a lot o information at once, it is only human to forget some of it. So keep on revising and solving practice papers of Symbiosis SET.
