Before we jump into the weekly plan, it is important to know that strategy and study plan works differently for different people. To some, this will surely be nothing less than a transformation. For others, it will add to their already laid out plan according to their skills.
Also, there are two categories of students. Some students love playing with numbers and are more inclined to mathematics, observation and problem solving and find it easy. Other aspirants are highly skilled in communication, learning new information and retaining the important dates, personalities, incidents and places, covering all the general knowledge and current affairs easily.
Therefore, this weekly preparation strategy is a pretty balanced one, perhaps a little tilted towards students who belong to the first category.
Let’s jump into the details:-
The UCEED exam topics can be broadly divided into Mathematics, Visualization, Aptitude, Communication, and General Knowledge. You should aim to learn and finish the comprehensive list of weekly topics mentioned with discipline.
Begin the week with topics which are comparatively easy. Take paragraph and reading comprehension, verbal reasoning, and sentence corrections in English. Follow it with General Knowledge topics on design related to everyday objects or famous writers, and experts in the field. Check videos on art media, prominent colours, photography, animations etc.
Now that you have gained a bit of rhythm, jump to non-verbal reasoning by the end of the week.
It is advisable to take some time off. Do this every week till the exam. Once you feel you are refreshed, gear up for an intense preparation in the week.
Up your game and study topics like Mathematical aptitude, Image-based questions, work on visualization skills. Delve deep into perspective drawing, vanishing point concepts, imagination and creativity skills.
