### Exam Pattern of UPSEE 2020

The exam structure of UPSEE 2020 is given in the following table:

 Subjects Number of Questions Marks Physics 50 200 Chemistry 50 200 Maths 50 200 Total 150 600

A total of 600 marks are divided amidst 150 questions. Each question will comprise of 4 marks. Thus for every correct option, the candidate will score 4 marks. However there is no negative marking in UPSEE.

### How to Prepare for UPSEE 2020

Here are some of the UPSEE 2020 Preparation Tips :
1. Devise a proper timetable
Not only should the candidates devise a timetable for themselves, but they should make it a point to follow it strictly. The aspirant should divide his or her time equally for all the subjects. Concentrating on one mere one subject will not help you ace UPSEE 2020. Hence it is advised that the students should follow their time table to the last dot. Make it a point to devote some extra time to the subjects which you feel are tough. Include some breaks in your time table where you can relax.
1. Solve previous year papers

This is unavoidable. Solving the previous year question papers will help you get a fair idea as to how the exam is set, what is the difficulty level, and what type of questions can be expected. The students can also solve mock test papers in order to learn time management skills.

Do not leave any area of study. Since there is no negative marking in UPSEE 2020, it is advised that you study all the subjects mentioned in your syllabus. This exam tests for your accuracy and retention both. Hence the more questions you will be able to solve in the exam, the greater advantage you will have. And this is possible only when you go through all the subjects, without leaving behind any topic.
One must buy standard books such as NCERT books of Class 11th and 12th, in order to ace UPSEE 2020. There may be many publishing houses which may be selling solved answers, or other guides/reference books. Kindly avoid falling into their trap, and put in your own hard work, time and effort, in order to crack this exam.
