For those wondering why only a few students can make it to UPSEE while the others are grumbling about their failure, stop thinking. Instead of waiting for Lady Luck to smile on you, you might want to look at things a little practically. Before proceeding to that:
What is UPSEE?
UPSEE 2019 is a state level entrance examination that opens multiple opportunities for deserving candidates. UPSEE is convened by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University for admission to the following courses: B.Tech, B.Arch, B.Pharm, BHMCT, BFAD, BFA, MBA, MCA and MCM offered by various institutes in Uttar Pradesh.
Some Tips and Tricks to crack UPSEE 2019 are as detailed below:
Set a goal for yourself. Go through the syllabus, eligibility criteria, dates and application procedure before preparing for the exam. Gather as much as information about the exam possible.
Where to Start?
Now that you have gone through the syllabus, marking scheme and pattern of the exam, identify your starting point. Give a mock test to understand the pattern of the examination and where you stand in terms of your level of preparation for the examination.
A good base is essential to attempt any competitive exam. Brush up your basics – Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics to do well in UPSEE 2019. The questions will be asked from Grade 11 and 12 syllabi. Once your basic principles of subjects are sound, you can attempt a question with confidence.
Allocation of equal preparation time among the following subjects – Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics carry equal weightage in the UPSEE entrance examination. Neglection of any subject or giving more importance to another might cost you heavy while attempting the exam.
Choosing the right kind of study material
Too much of anything, spoils everything. This holds true even in the case of the study material. A lot of study material is available both online and offline for the UPSEE, sticking to the ones that suit your style of studying and help you understand concepts would be better.
A subject wise list of books that a student can refer to for UPSEE Preparation are as follows:
- Concepts of Physics by H.C.Verma (Numerical and Theory)
- NCERT Physics for Grade 11 and 12
- MCQ Physics by D. Mukherjee for conceptual questions in Physics
- 14 years’ solved papers for UPSEE by Arihant Publications
- Physical Chemistry by P. Bahadur
- NCERT Chemistry for Grade 11 and 12
- Objective Chemistry by Pradeep
- NCERT Mathematics for Grade 11 and 12
- Objective Mathematics by R.D.Sharma
- Objective Biology by Dinesh
Practicing Sample Papers
A lot of sample papers and previous year question papers are required to be solved to get an overview of the examination. You should aim to finish these papers within 3 hours. Keeping a tab on time and speed will help you know about the sections of the test that are more time-consuming.
All the Best!
