How Test Series Helps in Improving Your Entrance Exam Performance?

Students have already started preparing for Entrance Exam like NEET/AIPMT or MHT CET exam 2017. Some might have even finished a substantial portion and are gearing up for periodic revisions. One of the most effective ways to revise the syllabus and also measure your performance level is to attempt test series on a regular basis.

Test series are mock examinations designed on the same pattern as the target exam such as IIT JEE, or MHT CET 2017, or similar entrance exam. The difficulty level of the questions, the pattern of questions, the marking scheme, and the allotted time are kept identical as this allows the student to get a hands on experience of solving the test.

How does it help in revision? Of course, when you check the key and solve the questions you did not get right, you are brushing up on your concepts, and aligning your thinking pattern to the thinking pattern of the test makers. The experts and the test-toppers cannot emphasize the importance of test series in improving the entrance exam performance.

Here are a few tips on how you can use the test – series more effectively to score high in the entrance exam:

Decide the Entrance Exam Test Schedule

Taking test series regularly trains your mind to pay attention to the time limit and also form a strategy around solving the paper so as to maximize the score. However, try to balance the mock tests with the study time. Solving test series for MHT CET is a part of the overall preparation and not a substitute for studying/acquiring conceptual knowledge.

As the trend goes, you can start taking test series once you have covered substantial syllabus in all the three subjects. Try taking 2 tests a week from the time you are four months away from the entrance exam.
