UPSEE 2018 - 8 Phenomenal Ways to Reduce Exam Stress

Considering the massive number of applications coming from all parts of Uttar Pradesh for UPSEE 2018, AKTU has surely made the exam level quite tough. While candidates are already under severe stress, there are several factors that are only aggravating the pressure. Some of them are the high expectation from parents. How to reduce UPSEE exam stress? Do you just need mental preparation for exams?

Let’s delve deeper and adopt smart techniques to beat the blues.

Make a Sketch & Clear Doubts:

Prepare an outline. This is an integral part of your preparation for UPSEE. Without a proper outline or a precise sketch, cracking the exam is a farfetched dream. An outline can be prepared just by listening to the lectures (if you are attending any) or take down notes while going through the textbook. Point out difficult phrases or concepts and clear them with the help of a tutor.

Be Clear with Concepts:

Mugging up won’t help you get high ranks, but understanding the concepts. Understand the UPSEE exam pattern and be well-versed with all the subjects. Subjects like mathematics require a lot of practice. And for that, one must have a great understanding of all important formulas.

Never Panic:

Go through the questions again and again even though those appear to be tough. Reading the questions frequently will help you remember the answers. All you need to do is stay calm and give your best. Try out the easier ones, and keep the toughest to try last.

Adequate Amount of Rest:

At least, 6 hours of sleep. There should not be any compromise when it comes to getting the minimum amount of sleep. Deep, sound sleep helps keep you healthy both physically and mentally. In a recent survey, it has come to the fore, the performance of sleep-deprived candidates is in no match with candidates who have taken adequate amount of sleep.

Gain Firsthand Exam Experience by Studying Past Papers:

Why not get a realistic idea of your upcoming exam by attempting UPSEE previous year papers? Mock test or practice of past years’ exam question papers will boost your confidence and help you do well on the exam.

Have a Good Companion:

Never be the smartest person in your class. Why? Whom would you discuss with if there’s no tutor around? It is always your study buddy who makes revision and discussion easy, interactive and enjoyable. Find a good study companion.

Best Use of the Internet:

Yes, a great way to learn smart! Check out various apps designed to meet the purpose, improve your practice, keep everything organized and what not. Many apps and websites do offer tests that would embellish you with certain amazing tricks. Whether you are worried about Aptitude Test for Architecture & Design or General Awareness or Pharmacy, there’s always an app.

Complete UPSEE 2018 Syllabus:

Have you done that yet?

In the last, keep an eye on the syllabus and leave no stone unturned to finish it much prior to the commencement of the exam.

5 Major Mistakes You Shouldn’t Commit while Submitting UPSEE 2018 Application Form

#1 Slide: Don’t Sit and Wait for Offline Application Form

For the candidates of Uttar Pradesh who wish to pursue their career in B. Tech, B. Arch or other competitive courses must appear in UPSEE 2018. This year, the state level entrance exam has been scheduled to be conducted on 29 April. If you are one of those aspirants waiting for AKTU, the conducting body, to release the application form in offline mode, you are definitely mistaken. The regulatory body i.e. Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Technical University has made UPSEE 2018 application from online since 23rd January 2018.

It’s time to log on to the official website i.e. https://upsee.nic.in/ and fill out the form.

#2 Slide: Not Having Pre-requisites

Are you by any chance filling up the application form of UPSEE 2018 without adequate details? Students are advised to go through the Information Brochure before making advancement towards submitting the form.

What Students Must Have
·         Aadhaar Card Number
           The active mobile number and email ID
·         Passport size photo
·         Signature

#3 Slide: Some Fields Cannot Be Modified

Read instructions, keep all necessary documents and pay utmost care to the details. Unlike other entrance exams where candidates are given an opportunity to modify or do the correction to the already submitted form, AKTU has abolished such system. Check these fields and make no mistake: Your name, parents name, date of birth and UPSEE 2018 application number.

#4 Slide: Do Your Scanned Photograph and Signature Possess the Requirement Size?

The university has made it clear that candidates must upload his or her most recent color passport size photograph and signature with a maximum size of 100 KB and 30 KB respectively. Moreover, it is the responsibility of the student to ensure that the photograph is clear. It must carry your name at the bottom.

Failing to meet the requirements will result in the cancellation of the candidature of the concerned person.
·         Clear scanned photo of 3.5cm X 4.5cm in JPEG format
·         Clear scanned signature of 3.5 cm X 1.5 cm in JPEG format

#5 Slide: No Demand Draft or Cheque for Exam Fee

After completion of first two steps (Registration and Uploading Images), applicants need to release the UPSEE 2018 exam fee through debit/credit card, net banking, and eWallet. After successful payment, download the Confirmation Page and take a print for future reference. Also, applicants are advised to note down the transaction number.
