They need to segregate the topics they know and don’t know and then make a study plan accordingly. It is also advised not to leave anything. Besides, cover the high-weightage topics prior to less important topics.
  2. Strategize the study plan: After segregating the topics, it is important to strategise how students will go about the preparation. It is advised to start early and prepare all topics of NSEP Syllabus at least a month before the exam.
  3. Use NCERT Books: Candidates should follow the NCERT books and prepare for the topics of NSEP syllabus. Test takers should also use reference books and go for more advanced topics once they are done with the syllabus.
  4. Solve Last year's question papers- IPAT releases the previous year NSEP question papers and answer key. Candidates can download them and practice with various kind of questions asked in the exam. These question papers are available on the official website of IAPT.
  5. Follow Right Refrence Books: Students should also follow the Reference books for CBSE Class 12th Physics to know the different types of questions and detailed NSEP syllabus. These books cover all sub-topics.
