UPSEE Preparation Tips and Tricks

Candidates can include the below-mentioned preparation tips and tricks into their study plan to ace the exam with desired scores:

  1. Create a timetable
  2. Prepare notes
  3. Practice Mock tests
  4. Previous Year Question papers
  5. Revision

Create a Timetable

Candidates appearing for the exam can create a timetable and follow it religiously. This will help candidates distribute time accordingly to complete the syllabus. Once candidates complete the syllabus, they can create a separate timetable for revision a few weeks before the exam to polish their preparations.

Prepare Notes

Short notes will always help candidates with quick revision. These notes can be in the form of flashcards or micro notes. When you come across a new formula, note it down and revise it at the end of each day. It is very important that with each covered topic, candidates prepare small notes or a comprehensive list of formulas that will come in handy during revision.

Practice Mock Tests

Mock Tests play an important role in UPSEE Preparation. Mock tests are trial exams that students take before appearing for the final exam to assess their level of preparation. Practice mock tests to boost your UPSEE preparations.

By practising mock tests, candidates can analyse their performance, time management and problem-solving skills. Furthermore, candidates can gain prior experience of the examination by attempting tests regularly

Previous Year Question Papers

The previous year’s question papers are the most authentic source of information for exam patterns. These papers can help candidates get familiar with previous years’ exam trends, such as question weightage, marking scheme, frequently asked questions and more.


The last fifteen days before the examination should be dedicated to revision. During revision, candidates must focus on revising previously learnt topics and avoid learning new topics. This practice will help candidates recall all the topic details and help candidates reduce the anxiety and stress levels that they face during the examination.
