Tips to prepare for GCET 2021 Exam!

Dear student,

You are one step closer to your dream.

The fact that you are here, looking at the exam syllabus, has made you accomplish one of the key steps towards cracking the state’s engineering entrance exam. However you have to take a few more steps to turn your dream into reality.

  1. Make sure you note the syllabus, and download the pdf for future reference.
  2. As you can see, the topics are all taught in Goa board at class 12 level. So if you are from Goa board, your class notes should be enough to study. However if you are not, then I recommend that you go through Goa board textbooks of class 12 for PCM.
  3. Make sure that you study the topics well, and understand them.
  4. Solve MCQs of those topics from standard reference books. Those of Goa CET, or JEE Main will do.
  5. Now last but not the least, you must solve previous year question papers of Goa CET exam.

If you complete all these steps, you will surely do well in the exam. One of these colleges – Goa Engineering College (GEC), Padre Conceição College of Engineering (PCCE), Shri Rayeshwar Institute Of Engineering Information Technology (RIT), Don Bosco, Agnel Institute of Technology and Design will be welcoming you soon.

Best of luck!
