Advantages of Solving KCET Previous Year Questions

The following are the list of advantages candidates can access through solving KCET previous years’ questions:

  • Solving KCET past year question papers will give candidates a clear idea about the exam pattern, the type of questions asked in the exam, and the difficulty level of the questions.
  • Taking previous year’s KCET question papers tests in a time-bound manner, just like the actual exam, will help candidates improve their time-management and problem-solving skills.
  • Solving the KCET previous year’s papers will help candidates analyse their strong and weak areas.
  • Various topic-wise weightage of the exam questions can be easily understood.

How To Solve KCET Previous Year’s Questions?

In order to make the best use of the KCET previous year papers and develop an efficient test-taking strategy, solve them in the following manner:

  • 1st Step: Allocate separate time slots of 80 minutes for each subject of the exam. You must take the tests just like you would take the actual exam. Keep Mathematics for 1 day and Physics and Chemistry for the next day.
  • 2nd Step: During the allocated time, start your test. Go through each and every question as they appear in the paper and assess whether or not you can solve them.
  • 3rd Step: If you are sure about a question, attempt it. But do not answer it in a hurry. Because then you might make silly/careless mistakes.
  • 4th Step: If you are not sure about a question, but you think it is worth giving a shot, mark it. Do not try to attempt it at that point.
  • 5th Step: As for questions you have no idea about, skip them.
  • 6th Step: Once you have gone through the entire paper and attempted all the questions you were sure about, try to answer/solve the marked questions.
  • 7th Step: Keep track of the time all through the test. Make sure you do not spend too much time on any questions. Basically, you should learn to move on.
  • 8th Step: Once you have taken the tests for all three subjects for a particular year, analyse your performance in each of the tests and find out your weaknesses.

Cultivating the habit of taking tests in the above manner will ensure you finish the paper on time with maximum accuracy.

How To Analyse Performance Through KCET Previous Year Questions?

The following are the steps through which candidates can analyse their performance through KCET previous years’ question papers:

  • Track the chapters and concepts candidates are weak in.
  • The concepts and chapters candidates couldn’t answer at all (despite trying).
  • Chapters and concepts where candidates spent a lot of time.

Once identified, revise them and practice more questions from them in a time-bound manner. Doing so after every test will ensure score improvement from test to test and, eventually, a high score in the exam.
