5 mistakes to avoid while preparing for KARTET

  • The candidate must not forget to download the syllabus from the official website before starting to prepare for the exam. This will help the candidates get a clear idea of the topics that are required to be studied.
  • Candidates must not only focus on studying a new topic but must keep revising the older topics. Since the syllabus of the KARTET exam is huge, most often, candidates focus only on covering up the syllabus and not focusing on revision.

  • Candidates must not forget to carry the admit card along with a valid proof of identity to the exam center on the day of the exam. If the candidate is not able to produce the admit card at the exam center, he/she will not be allowed to sit for the exam.
