1. Revise all the chapters from NCERT class 12th

2. CUET practice questions

There are various resources available for CUET practice questions in the form of online test preps, question banks and free questions available online. Pick any you can and start practising for the CUET maths questions.

Practice as much as possible. If possible, practice them topic-wise and note your weakest/strongest topics.

You can return to the more difficult topics and put extra effort into them later. If you are stuck on some topic, do not waste too much time on it, or it will demotivate you.

Keep practising questions until you are sure of the topic and your ability to solve any question from that topic.

4. Understanding what the 100 percentile means (critical point)

100 percentile doesn’t mean you must score 200 on the exam. 100 percentile is the top score obtained in the exam. The highest score in CUET 2024 maths was 150 out of 200; getting a score of 150 is considered the 100 percentile.

What does this mean? You need to be smart about picking the questions in the exam. 

Do not solve each and every question in a linear fashion during the exam. Solve the easiest questions that do not take much time. Remember that you only have 45 minutes to solve a paper with 40 questions. You get roughly 1 minute for each question.

Attempt all the questions that take less than or close to 1 minute to solve. Get the maximum marks possible first. If time permits, go for the ones that can take more time, but you are sure you can get the right answer since a wrong answer can reduce your score. The goal is to secure the maximum possible score in the exam.
