Make a study schedule: The study schedule must be made keeping in view the requirements of the two exams. The plan should include time allotted for each topics. Now since the COMEDK UGET 2020 will be held a month or so after KCET exam, the candidate may keep some topics of COMEDK for later if managing two exams gets a bit out of hand. It must be noted the candidate must have provisions for taking stock of things after regular intervals so that progress can be checked.

Take notes during study: There are many benefits of taking notes during study. For one, it will enable the candidate to focus on the important topics. Secondly, the notes can be used for quick revision, especially closer to the exam when there is less time in hand to go through entire blocks of texts. Also, notes are easy to carry around as they don’t have the bulk associated with text books. When taking notes, the candidate must try to make them as crisp and lucid as possible.

Solve sample papers and take mock tests: These days no preparation is complete without a fair amount of sample papers. It is because solving these papers helps to identify the true strengths and weaknesses of the candidate. Also, since they contain questions from the entire syllabus, the candidates can really add to their problem solving skills by solving sample papers of KCET and also sample papers of COMEDK UGET. When solving these papers, the candidate must not only look to improve speed, but also accuracy.

In the final days, the candidate is also is urged to take mock tests, as it will give the candidate an exam like environment thus preparing him/her for the final battle. By taking these tests, the candidate will learn about time management and, importantly, the trick to handle exam pressure.

Stay happy and healthy: Keeping the body in tip-top shape is important, as only then the brain will work at its optimum level. So, in-between preparation the candidate must remember to take sufficient breaks for rejuvenation. During breaks, the candidate may engage in light hobbies like swimming, jogging, or go for a walk without over exerting. Music is also considered a stress buster, so the candidate might try that too. Also, sleeping your normal quota of hours and eat healthy.

It doesn't matter if you are a local citizen of Karnataka. The criteria for getting a seat under KCET is that you should have studied in Karnataka for 7 years and plus. Only then you are qualified to write this entrance exam. Hence, Comedk is the option you can opt for.
