The bells for the entrance examinations are about to begin with the JEE Main exam, being conducted this Sunday. Within no time, students will witness many national and state-level entrance examinations for both engineering and medical admissions.
COMEDK (Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental, Karnataka) is one amongst the popular entrance examinations in the country. Annually, COMEDK conducts two examinations namely, UGET (Under Graduate Entrance test) and PGET (Post Graduate Entrance Test).
COMEDK-UGET is conducted for admissions to BTech and BArch courses and NEET score is mandatory for admissions to medical and dental courses in the country. More than 2 lakh candidates are expected to take this prestigious examination for the 20 thousand seats spread across 16 medical colleges, 25 dental colleges and 192 BE colleges.
COMEDK is the most awaited and popular entrance examination, specifically in southern India. With only a month left for the examination, explore the tips that can land you at the doors of your dream college.
The exam is conducted in English medium only. The duration of the exam will be three hours. There is no negative marking for wrong answers. However, in the event of a tie negative marking will be considered. Check the exam pattern here.
|Subject||No of Questions||No of Marks|

Time management is required for any competitive entrance examination. Students should stick to their timetable and never encourage procrastination at any stage of the preparations, specifically during the last month. Once something gets delayed, it keeps on pushing everything, which leads to panic and tension during the last days of preparation.
Identify Your Strengths
Prior to your weaknesses, know about your strengths. There is no negative marking in the COMEDK exam; this means you should focus more on your correct answers rather than incorrect ones. Try to list all the topics that you are strong and weak in. Make time for mastering the weak concepts and try to be the best in your strong topics.
Focus On Mathematics
In most of the engineering entrance examinations, mathematics will be the deciding factor. Keep an eye on the mathematics syllabus because the questions will not be asked beyond the boundaries. Regular practise is only the option to score well in this subject. With regular practise, you can increase your speed and accuracy.
Solve Previous Years' Questions Papers
Be it the board or competitive exams, previous years' question papers are important to understand the type of questions asked. While solving the question papers, you will find a new way or trick to solve the questions. This will also make you familiar with the exam environment and boost your confidence. You will also understand where to improve while taking the mock test or solving the previous years' questions papers.
As we mentioned above, it is better to focus on your strengths because there is no negative marking in COMEDK. In mathematics, relations and functions, 3D geometry, vectors, sets and calculus are important. In chemistry, give importance to s-block elements, p-block elements, d-block elements, biomolecules, general organic chemistry, chemical kinetics and thermodynamics. While coming to physics, focus should be on nuclear physics, semiconductor devices, magnetic effects and magnetism, simple harmonic motion, heat and thermodynamics.
