  • Be confident- That is the only tool/aarmour you have. A well-prepared person with less confidence might have greater chances of losing marks! Likewise, an average prepared guy with full confidence has a greater chance of being the topper.

  • Smart study- Prioritise your study pattern and know your strengths and work on weakness.

  • Solve sample papers- Refer to some of the previous year question papers and mock tests of the UCEED entrance test, at-least of the previous 10 years and practice them as much as you can.

  • Spend some time on general awareness - Make sure you keep abreast of both national and international news. Also it is imperative to be aware of environmental and social awareness as it is a separate section in the examination.

  • Manage time properly - The UCEED 2020 will be divided into two parts- section A and section B. First section consumes a lot of time, which is why candidates need to manage their time to get sufficient time for solving them.

  • Ensure you work on abstract tests- It is crucial for you to know abstract, mathematical and mechanical aptitude.

  • Admit card - Candidates must carry a printed copy of the downloaded admit card. Only candidates having a valid admit card will be allowed inside the examination centre.

  • Valid ID proof - The candidate’s identity will be verified by invigilators as well as IIT representatives. If the identity of the candidate is in doubt, the candidate may not be allowed to appear for the examination.

  • Reporting Time - Make sure to reach the centre at the reporting time mentioned in the admit card. After ‘Gate closure’, the candidate will not be permitted under any circumstances.

  • Stationery - Test-takers are required to bring their own stationery material for use in UCEED 2020. Some of the items they need to bring are:

  • Ruler

  • Eraser

  • Sharpener

  • Lead pencils (of varying grades)

  • Black ballpoint pen (to mark the answers in the OMR sheet)

Don’t For UCEED 2020

  • Practise online and not offline - You need to be well versed with online mode of examination. You need to understand and be comfortable with the online pattern.

  • Do not start late - Do not underestimate the amount of practice and time required for this exam. The only way to crack UCEED is by starting as early as you can.

  • Do not set limits while studying - Do not limit yourself to the topics, cover as many topics as you can.

  • Don't get fooled by complex image questions - They look difficult to solve but in reality, they are quite similar to normal geometric questions. Based on the practice of your mock tests, you can easily solve them during exams even if they look difficult!

  • Don’t spend too much time on one question- On average, spend 1.5-2 minutes for each question, regardless of marks. Spare at least 15-20 minutes at the end to recheck your attempted questions.

  • Do not try to impersonate- Impersonation in the examination is a serious offence which will result in immediate disqualification of the candidate from UCEED, and lead to criminal proceeding against the candidate.

  • No electronic gadgets- Candidates will not be allowed to carry any electronic device (mobile phones, smartphones, digital/smart watches, calculators, tablets etc.), abacus, slide rule, log books, study material of any type, geometry box, etc. to the examination hall. A list of forbidden items will be put up on the website before the exam if there are additional items.

  • Do not surmise the answers- The candidates must not mark the answers if they are not sure as in Part A, there is negative marking in multiple choice questions and multiple select questions.

  • Don’t practice using pen and paper- Refrain from practising offline mock tests. You need to be well versed with online mode of examination. You need to understand and be comfortable with the online pattern.

  • Do not sign the admit card prior to entering the centre - Candidates have to sign on the admit card in presence of the invigilator. Candidates must also ensure that their signature matches the printed signature, which they had uploaded during registration.

Following these UCEED 2020 do’s and don’ts in these few days will definitely aid in performing better. Candidates should focus on giving their 100 per cent, and be sincere and focused. Maintaining a positive approach throughout the preparation phase of UCEED 2020 is crucial. There is every possibility of clearing the exam with a positive mindset.

My daughter has rank#3. Her interest area is animation. Which IIT is best for her? Or shall we wait for NID?

Shivam bhardwaj Student Expert 19th Mar, 2020

Hello aspirant,

Hope you are doing well.

Among IITs, IIT Bombay will be best option for your daughter but keep in mind NID is also one of the top Institute in India.  If she can get that college then what could be the better option.

Good luck
