5 Mistakes to avoid while preparing for Super TET

Here are some mistakes you need to avoid to make your exam preparation truly fruitful.

Having just a vague idea of the syllabus and exam pattern

Definitely one of the biggest mistakes you can make. You need to know the syllabus and exam pattern well to plan out your preparation strategy. While the syllabus tells you what exactly to study, the exam pattern gives you an idea as to how to manage time for each section. It is going to be very difficult to clear the Super TET if you don’t have an idea about the pattern and syllabus.

Failing to execute plans

We all know students who plan a lot for exams. They make themselves proper timetables and collect study materials etc. However, only a few manage to execute these plans, and the rest don’t execute them, thanks to procrastination. So, stick to your plans and execute them.

Not solving previous years’ questions and mock tests

This is crucial. You must refer to mock tests and previous years’ questions to assess yourself and to get an idea of the question types that are likely to be asked. When you don’t solve these, you are losing the opportunity of identifying your weak and strong points. But that’s not all; you will end up being unaware of the most asked question types.

Do not mug up

Mugging up the answers is not the best way to prepare for Super TET.  When you mug up, you are most likely to forget what you have studied because you do not know the logic behind the topic. This could give you a tough time during the test. So, understand the logic behind every topic and learn.

Collecting tons of study material

Collecting too many study materials can be pointless because it is practically impossible to study everything at hand. Again, you need to work smartly. You should go for selected materials, the ones that are highly recommended by coaches and ex-candidates who cleared Super TET.
