For admission to various undergraduate programmes at the esteemed Symbiosis institutes, Symbiosis International (Deemed University) administers the Symbiosis Entrance Test (SET), a national-level entrance examination. Candidates who intend to take the exam must prepare far in advance.
SET Exam Preparation Tips
Cracking an exam is not a cakewalk, and it is not easy to grab a seat in one of the most prestigious private varsities, such as Symbiosis. You need to have a really strong strategy to crack this exam. Tips and strategies for preparing for SET 2024 are provided here.
Be versed with your syllabus
Knowing the syllabus for the entrance exam is the first step towards SET preparation. Dividing the time for your exam is only possible if you are thorough with the syllabus. Therefore, you can analyse the area of your strength and then allocate the time required for each section.
Understand the exam pattern
Going through the previous year question papers and sample papers helps you figure out the exam pattern. Once you become familiar with the type of questions, you will take lesser time to solve questions. There will be clarity in your mind regarding how to crack the SET exam.
You have limited time to attempt 4 sections and 60 questions overall. You don’t get the time to ponder which section you will attempt or the questions you want to opt-out or attempt last. Therefore knowing the exam pattern adds to your skill of solving the exam faster.
Prepare Short Notes
Remembering and revising before the exam is crucial for students to perform well. This can be done by preparing short notes. Going through them just a day before the exam will ensure that you remember all that you have prepared, which will boost your confidence in attempting the exam.
No exam can be cleared sans practice. It’s the most important key for qualifying any exam you want. All the hard work you have put in during months for SET is futile, lest you have practiced sufficiently and are confident about making it to your chosen college and the course.
