Study Plan

A Time table: Analyze your standard long before the exam. When it comes to REET, eleventh-hour preparations never really work. Create a well-structured schedule for each day. REET expects you to be familiar with this that preparation for this exam takes a good amount of time. To successfully crack REET, the aspirants should start preparing ahead of time.

Learn & Revise: The syllabus of the REET examination can get you anxious. Plan your study method in such a way that you get to revise whatever you have learnt the whole day or week.

Making evident notes: This tip doesn't even need to be here but yes, making quick notes when you're studying helps them the next time you flip their books for revision.

Practicing questions: A crucial task to add to your daily life as an aspirant is practicing previous years' question paper. At least, the past 5 years' questions need to be solved by the learner. Solving past year questions might sound like a mundane task, but it is worth the pain. It helps you to provide a clear picture of what you are going to approach.

Personality & Communication skills: The interview phase is a very significant part of the examination. It would be best if you addressed your thoughts transiently to the interviewers. Therefore, it is highly recommended to prepare for the interview several times, polishing your communication skills. Body language is one such property to be taken care of in an interview. The interview phase of the exam is not designed to judge one's expertise on a subject. However, a candidate has to answer all the questions with honesty.

Wish you all the very best for your exam!
