How to Maintain a Balance between Board and MHT CET 2017 Preparation?

Are you confused whether to prepare for the upcoming 12th standard board exams or whether you should devote all your time and attention to solving numerous Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) for your MHT CET 2017?

Well, there is no choice really because you have to focus on both. You cannot take either of them lightly because to outshine others at MHT CET, your 11th, and 12th standard science concepts must be strong. At the same time, let us face the truth that there is no guarantee that you will get the dream college and dream stream in the first attempt. Your 12th standard board examination marks are important to get admission in a good college if you don’t want to spend a full year preparing only for the entrance exam.

So now that we have established the importance of board exams with respect to the MHT CET 2017, it is time to devise a smart plan that will help you balance both your targets.

Here are a few working solutions for the same:

Plan a 9-Month Study Schedule

Though the classes for board exams and CET begin during the summer vacations itself, we advise planning a 9-month schedule from August to June. This is almost 10 – 11 months but it’s a good idea to keep some breathing space for yourself.

Next thing to do is to mark important academic/competitive events, such as Preliminary examinations for boards, Board exams, any major test series in your coaching centres, and the week for MHT CET 2017. These are your milestones.

Divide Fixed Time Slots for Boards Preparation and MHT CET 2017 Preparation Every Day

Even during your board examinations or prelims, you must spend at least 30-45 minutes on solving a MHT CET MCQ paper. This is just to ensure discipline. Similarly, during the period of mock test series in classes, spend an hour or two on revising the concepts of 12th standard Physics, Chemistry or Maths.

If you feel daily targets are adding to your workload, set targets for the alternate day with a cumulative weekly target, so that you know you are not deviating from your study goals.

Cash on Common Topics between MHT CET 2017 and Board Exams

Students agree that many topics in Physics and Chemistry overlap in the case of board exams and the MHT CET for medical and engineering. So the smart thing to do is to mark those common topics and study them from the perspective of both the examinations.

Combine the concepts in each topic, and take mock tests around them at a single given time. Solve lengthy working solutions along with the MCQs and vice-versa, so that you are preparing for both the exams simultaneously. Otherwise, it might become too tedious to revisit the same concepts again and again.

Prevent Burnout with Right Balance

In trying to juggle and balance between boards and MHT CET 2017 preparation, do not forget to take out time for some physical activity like running, jogging, playing football or any other sport for at least 2-3 hours in a week. Remember you need to sweat it out to prevent burn out.

This is just a way to make the right start. Once you begin to prepare a work plan, write to us in case you face confusions or difficulties. You can also go through our 6 month study schedule for MHT CET 2017 preparation.
