Ques. Did you take coaching classes? If yes mention their role in your Story

Ques. English Language: Share your Preparation Strategy and Books you followed for this section.

Ans. I considered online study materials along with hands on mock tests. I majorly focused on types of questions and my speed to solve them. I also referred Arihant books for logical reasoning. Mock tests are really important to know the syntax of exam and types of questions you get in the exam.

Ques. Mathematics: Share your Preparation Strategy and Books you followed for this section.

Ans. I solved various practice papers to know the format and type of questions. I also referred to Arihant books and practiced questions according to the syllabus of my examination. There are some short cut methods to solve each type of question. Regular practice is required for the same.

Ques. Computer Awareness: Share your Preparation Strategy and Books you followed for this section.

Ans. I considered online notes and study material and also general awareness books. Also, I am already from computer science background, so it didn’t take much time to understand the concepts of computer. I also knew the basics so easily moved over advanced and more important topics.

Ques. Logical and Analytical Ability: Share your Preparation Strategy and Books you followed for this section.

Ans. The major hacks according to me were online notes, online study material, offline notes and offline study material. According to the syllabus, I divided my time to work on certain type of questions like, puzzles, series etc. After covering and understanding one important topic, I used to practice it again from mock tests and sample papers.

Ques. What mock test did you take?

Ans. I personally recommend studying from sample papers available online or from the sample papers given in Arihant Book. The online mock tests are of great help too.

Ques. What are the websites you followed for getting regular updates and preparation?

Ans. The most popular search engine that provides all the latest update about the IPU CET exam is Google. I find related links or updates on as well. The portal is quite helpful.

Ques. What should be the Strategy for Someone Who is starting just two months before the exam?

Ans. Analyze your syllabus, divide the sections according to it. And start with the ones which can be covered maximum in one day. No need to study for long hours but you need to prepare properly. Focus on one topic at once. If possible, pick up the topic first which is easier for you to cover in a day.

Ques. How did you manage IPUCET preparation schedule along graduation studies/working hours?

Ans. Yes, it was difficult. I decided to devote 1 hour after my BCA classes to study and prepare for the IPU CET exam. I studied on the weekends for more time.

Ques. Share your Strategy and how did you overcome the weak areas, what special efforts did you put in?

Ans. Yes, I didn’t understand few sections initially or even the questions but there is a solution to every problem. I found answers to every question and understood it so that I can solve them later and that topic becomes easier.

Ques. What are the things you would like to go back in time and change to get into a better college?

Ans. I got a college of my choice so I have no regrets on a personal note. But self-study and practice of weak topics can help you.
