How to prepare for uniTEST

Prepare yourself for uniTEST

You will not be tested in a certain curriculum where it is required you know the content in advance. All you need to know in answering the questions will be apparent in the test. You can prepare yourself beforehand by knowing which strategy you will apply during the test.

Continuity - don't get stuck on a single question

Time is short and it is therefore important that you do not get stuck on a question but rather continue to the next question and return to the difficult questions later on. A good tip in preparation for the uniTEST is to read as many books, newspapers, articles as you can in training and increasing your reading speed. Learn more about the test and see examples of the test questions here.
