How to prepare for the RTET Exam 2021

There is no such thing as having one successful way of obtaining the qualifying marks. However, concentration and determination are the two things that will help you excel in any competitive exam. Apart from that, a couple of quick changes in your routine will help you cover the syllabus adequately.

All of these smart tips are discussed briefly below, stick through to know it all:

  • You must make sure that you are well aware of the latest syllabus of the examination. This will help you make yourself a study routine. Besides, you can divide different days for different subjects and cover them all in time.

  • Gathering the right study materials is another thing that plays an essential role in your preparation. There are a vast number of books available for your preparation but rely on the ones that will help you understand for sure. Most helpful books are books provided by NCERT and CBSE.

  • Maintain your health. To prepare for the exam adequately, you cannot keep getting sick. So, maintaining your health is as essential as studying smartly. So, make sure you keep yourself hydrated enough and eat the right food at all times. Avoid staying hungry for long durations and binge eating junk food.

  • Don’t over study, it will only make your learning progress extremely slow, how? Well, studying for longer durations without any break can make you feel tired. As a result, you will end up slowing down your preparation speed.

  • Take short breaks while studying. As mentioned above, rigorously studying will end up in devastating results. So, to maintain your interest in studies and stay fresh, take short breaks in between your study sessions.

These are some fundamental tips that you must keep in mind while preparing for the RTET 2021. Moreover, it is more important to study in a smart way than to study and mug up everything you see in front of your eyes. Staying aware of the syllabus is one of the parts of studying and maintaining your flow is another very essential part of it.

So, make sure you construct a study schedule smartly with appropriate breaks in between. Not only this will help you in your overall learning but at the same time help you keep yourself healthy.

RTET 2021 Exam Preparation Strategy

Focused Syllabus Preparation

Fifteen days is a short time to cover an entire syllabus, especially for such competitive exams. People start preparing right after registering themselves for RTET. However, if for some reason you were unable to cover a chunk of your RTET syllabus, you still have time. The best way to understand everything is by efficiently and effectively dividing your time.


Time to invest in learning

The time needed to revise

Comprehension and English/Hindi Grammar

2-3 hours every day

20 minutes after a short break

Children Development and Pedagogy

3-4 hours in a day

20 minutes after a short break

Maths, Science, or Social Science

3-4 hours in a day

20 minutes after a short break

It is not typical if you follow the right pattern and focus on all the important parts of your syllabus. Covering the entire syllabus will be strenuous, so be mindful of essential parts of your syllabus. Other than that, try studying the complicated parts in the morning.

A human brain is most refreshed during the morning hours and holds a capacity of remembering almost 90% of everything without any revision.

Even though this is the perfect schedule to follow for preparation, you must be at ease with this. Putting too much pressure on yourself will not help you have great results. So, make sure you follow this schedule at your own pace and convenience. Stepping a little out of your comfort zone is fine but do not burden yourself by strictly sticking to anything.

RTET 2021 Section-wise Exam Preparation
