The exam’s full details have been released, and with only four days until the exam, it’s time for candidates to wrap up their preparations and go through some revision tips.
But before exploring the revision tips, go through the REET exam’s curriculum and structure. If you are a first-time candidate, you must go through the syllabus and remember it during the initial stage of your preparation. On the other hand, if you are not a first-time candidate, you should examine the syllabus and pattern to see whether there have been any changes.

Know the Important Topics
Those taking both the level 1 and level 2 REET exams will have a large curriculum to cover. As a result, one of the first things to do is double-check if you have missed out on any essential test topics. It will help to compile a list of the areas in which a candidate excels and compare it to the curriculum to ensure that such topics have been sufficiently covered.
For instance, Child Development and Pedagogy, and Language papers, are common subjects on both levels of the REET test. These subjects are worth a total of 90 points in each paper out of 150. As a result, applicants must be able to [properly answer as many questions as possible in these parts.
Be Sure of the Exam Pattern
The best revision tip is to know the exam pattern extensively. Knowing the exam pattern will help applicants decide which topics would carry the most weightage and revise accordingly during the last few days. The exam pattern differs for both Level 1 and Level 2 applicants. While it is not advised to begin learning a new topic in the last few days before the test, applicants must be well equipped with topics that produce high scores. Referring to previous years’ REET question papers is the greatest approach to discover and prepare for such topics.
Candidates must score at least 60% to pass the exam and be placed on the REET 2021 Merit List. As a result, obtaining minimal passing marks necessitates successfully answering at least 100 questions. Furthermore, applicants must obtain a score equal to or greater than the given cut-off.
Solve Previous Year Question Papers
Solving previous years’ question papers is a great revision tip and preparation strategy. It will help you identify the most significant test topics, get an idea of the difficulty level, type, and pattern of questions commonly asked in the exam. Questions from previous years’ examinations are frequently repeated, and applicants must know the right answers to these questions by thoroughly checking the REET answer keys from past years’ exams during the last few days.
Mock Test Papers
Once you’ve covered the entire curriculum, the best revision tip is to take mock tests. Mock tests literally assist you in identifying your areas of strength and weakness. Take a practice exam whenever you are ready to evaluate where you stand and assess yourself. Also, keep an eye on the clock. You’ll have 150 minutes to complete 150 questions. So, practice answering all of the questions in the allotted time while taking a mock test.
Time management is an essential factor that guarantees success in these exams. Candidates must ensure that they manage time efficiently and attempt all questions since no negative marking is involved. You can prepare to solve one section’s questions within a given duration. If you cannot solve one question, you can jump to the next one and always come back to the first one later. It is better to solve all the easy questions correctly first and then solve the tougher ones.
Last but not least, keep handy notes ready. The most vital revision tip is to keep the crux of the syllabus at your fingertips. With a ready reckoning on all the important topics of the syllabus, last-minute revisions become much easier. All the best!
