CUET UG 2023 – Valuable Tips by Toppers

As students work hard to prepare for the CUET, some tips from previous year’s toppers can help them enormously in cracking the exam.

CUET UG 2022 Topper – Megha Goenka

Meghna prepared for the CUET primarily through self-study. She went over what she had previously studied for her board exams. She believes the papers were relatively simple for anyone who had their concepts clear from the start.

According to Megha, the CUET has levelled the playing field for everyone.

CUET UG 2022 Topper – Sahaana Ramesh

The majority of the questions came from the board syllabus, and the fact that Sahaana had two board exams, one of which was multiple-choice question (MCQ) based, was extremely beneficial. She solved papers using various MCQ-based guidebooks, which aided her preparation.

Previously, there were students from various boards, and there was disparity due to varying marking standards, but now there is more consistency.

CUET UG 2022 Topper – Priyanshi Choudhary

Priyanshi didn’t have any coaching, and she was worried that coaching classes would teach students things she didn’t know because she chose self-preparation. She would have gotten into college based on her board scores, but she did better in the CUET.

It was a tough and thorough test, but it was a good experience that has given Priyanshi new opportunities.

CUET UG 2022 Topper – Preetam Singh

When Preetam learned about the CUET, his board exams were approaching, so he attempted to study for both at the same time, but it did not work. He couldn’t concentrate. He decided to prioritise the board over the CUET.

Later, he studied for the CUET, and the syllabus was the same. Since Preetam had never studied English or the General Test before, he chose to focus on those.ย 

According to Preetam, the exam level was acceptable and the paper was simple. The CUET promised to level the playing field for all courses, but he doesnโ€™t believe it has done so. As many students received 100 percentiles, competition has increased.
