A Proper Study & Revision Timetable
You can now count the days leading upto the date of examination. So, make sure that each day is worth it.
Make a proper timetable, focused on both proper studying as well as revision on the same day. You need to dedicate more time towards analysing your performance in practice tests you take and learning from your mistakes. Learning any new topic right now will be futile!
Solve Previous Year’s Papers and Mock Tests
Here, the priority order should be solving previous years papers first and then moving towards solving mock test papers.
As explained above, your timetable needs to be focused on analysing your performance. Your analysis must help you answer the following questions.
- What is my median score in practice papers?
- Which topics are my strengths and where do I lack?
- Am I able to complete the entire paper in time?
- How can I improve my overall score?
If you are able to get credible answers, you are on the right track!
Child Development and Pedagogy: The Deal-Breaker
This was what we have been saying from the start. CDP will be actual measure of your performance in CTET 2016 as the written examination is majorly based on it.
With a major chunk of the overall score resting on Child Development and Pedagogy section, you need to aim at solving maximum questions from this section. If you do that, consider yourself marching in the safe zone.
Work Hard on your Pre-Determined Exam Strategy
Since you are the best judge of your strengths and weakness, it is advisable to always work on your own exam strategy while attempting the paper. This will help you in the following manner.
- Allotting specific time slots to each section based on your ability
- Selecting which section to start
- Skip those questions you know you might not be able to solve in time
Time Management and Accuracy will be the key in cracking CTET 2016 and it will only work when you work on your own exam strategy.

This is an examination which will test your ability to work optimally in times of pressure. So, you need to stay calm during this week and avoid any sort of stress.
Have faith in your preparation and you will persevere. All the Best
