Tips And Tricks
- Practice past papers
Past papers are very important for every entry test preparation and for ETEA, it is especially important as many questions from previous years are repeated and past papers are the best way to apply learnt concepts from the textbook and also give a general idea of the difficulty and type of questions asked.
It is also known that the ETEA test is higher in difficulty than other entry tests so you should be well prepared. You can also visit PrepareHOW or download the PrepareHOW app for past papers practice and availability.
- Time Management
Time management is very important for the test as the number of questions is 200 while the time given for the exam is 2 hours and 30 minutes. Most questions in the Biology section require careful thinking while the Chemistry and Physics questions require thorough concepts revision so time management has to be done carefully.
- Prepare syllabus specific topics
Since there are many chapters and topics in the course, care should be given to what topics are mentioned in the syllabus as studying for topics which are not included in the syllabus will be a waste of important time and energy.
- Stay relaxed and keep calm
This is very important. You should remain calm and remain focused on the exam during the exam. If you encounter any difficult question during the paper, just mark it by a pencil and solve it later, thus wasting less time and moving on to the next question.
However you should save enough time in the end to review the paper.
- Use online resources
Practice for ETEA Entry Test can also be done online as there are many websites offering past papers and sample papers as well. You can also visit PrepareHOW Entry Test Preparation Website to prepare for the test by giving mock papers and are provided other preparation tools as well.
- Attempt all questions
Since in this entry test, there will be no negative marking so it is advised to attempt all questions even if you may not know the answer. Luck may run in your favor and the answer may be right since there is no consequence of losing marks. You should also leave enough time to review the exam in the end and try to solve every question.
