Ultimate guide to prepare for COMEDK

By mid-April, most Indian students are done with their board exams and finally get to breathe a sigh of relief. Not so for those aspiring for a professional degree in Law, Medicine or Engineering, though. For these students, it is the beginning of another phase of examinations – entrance tests to get admitted to their course of choice.

With so many different entrance and qualifying examinations for admission to institutions throughout the country, all with separate exam patterns, dates and syllabus, it becomes difficult for students to keep track and adequately prepare for them. To help students through this crucial phase, we at Buddy4Study are running a series covering all major admission tests, along with tips to prepare for them.

In the same series, today we shall cover COMEDK UGET. So, without further ado, here’s the ultimate guide to prepare for COMEDK:

What is COMEDK

COMEDK, or the ‘Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka’, is an autonomous institution entrusted with the responsibility to organise testing procedures to determine the merit of aspiring students in an effective, fair, transparent and non-exploitative procedure. Before the National Eligibility -cum- Entrance Test (NEET) was mandated as the only acceptable entrance exam for admission to Medical and Dental courses in the country, the COMEDK also administered entrance exams for admissions to 16 medical and 24 dental colleges in Karnataka. Today, the UGET (Undergraduate Entrance Test) administered by the COMEDK is used for admissions to around 190 engineering colleges.

Eligibility Criteria

Candidates from all over the country can appear for the entrance examination. The candidates should have passed with a minimum aggregate of 45% marks in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics and should have passed these subjects individually. A lower cut-off of 40% is applicable for SC/ST candidates and OBC candidates from Karnataka.

Test Pattern

The total exam duration is 3 hours for the test with 180 questions in total. The exam consists of objective type questions, with 60 questions each for all the three subjects – Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Each correct answer is awarded 1 mark with total marks for the paper being 180. There is no negative marking for wrong answers. The medium of examination is English.

Test Syllabus

The entrance test is based on the existing syllabus of 10 + 2 / 12th STD / 2nd PUC.

Important Dates

Applications for the test opened on 16th January, 2018, while the last date for application submission and online payment is 19th April, 2018. You can download your Test Admission Ticket from 4th May, 2018 to 12th May, 2018, and the examination will be conducted on 13th May, 2018. All test scores will be made available online on 28th May, 2018.

Tips to Remember

Know your exam: Every examination is different – tailored to meet the needs of the institutions it caters to. For COMEDK, you should know that the key is speed, with 180 questions to answer in 180 minutes! So practice to ensure you attempt all the answers, especially considering there is no negative marking.

Mock Tests: The official website for COMEDK also hosts mock tests that give candidates an idea of the real exam. It is also a great idea to go through previous years’ papers to get an idea of the type of questions frequently asked and also the level of difficulty. The more you practise, the better equipped you will be to handle the examination pressure.

Self-Analysis: Your preparation is strictly governed by self-analysis. If you fail to find loopholes in your concepts or shy away from revisiting your mistakes, it is not going to do you any good. Knowing your weaknesses allows you to work on your weak concepts.

Time Management: Try to absolutely stick to your schedule and never procrastinate. The syllabus requires diligent study and hence you must train yourself to study for a specific required number of hours every day apart from practicing extra questions.

Revision: Since the syllabus here is the same as your +2, revision will be the key to success. Make proper notes of concepts that require regular revision. These could be mathematical formulae or important chemical reactions; basically, anything that is important and is expected to be remembered for the exam. These notes help you in your last minute preparation and to quickly go through the concepts.
