Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is organizing the Central Teachers Eligibility Test (CTET) December 2019 exam on December 8, 2019, which is also the first Sunday of the month. As, the date of CTET 2019 is not that far away, let us share some very useful preparation tips with all the aspirants.
First of all, creating an efficient study plan and knowing the syllabus and exam pattern are very important to crack CTET in first attempt. By this time, candidates should have covered all the important topics given in the syllabus, keeping the exam pattern in mind.
Now note that there is no negative marking in CTET. So, attempting all 150 questions will cause no harm. Candidates should carefully read the entire question paper and then attempt those questions first that they are confident about. Then take a close guess for others as well.
Practice makes the man, and woman, perfect. It is the right time to implement this famous saying in practical life. Students should practice hard by solving previous year question papers to have an idea of their speed and accuracy. This will also help the candidates to identify which topics are important for CTET 2019.
Be sure about success and success will be yours. Candidates should put their trust in themselves and keep their energy level balanced, with high levels of confidence. Over-stressing and over-thinking should be avoided and focus should remain on achieving the target.
Do not spend more than 30 seconds on one question. If it is taking longer, then leave that question and move towards the ones that are known. Once the entire paper is finished, come back and try solving the remaining questions.
While preparing for the CTET 2019 candidates should not forget that they are humans and not machine, hence trying to learn each and everything is not possible. Focus should be on the important topics and the topics from which maximum questions will be asked.
