  • Andhra Pradesh ICET 2023 being a state-level examination, there is stiff competition among the aspiring candidates intending to get admissions into coveted Universities and Colleges in Andhra Pradesh State. In view of its demand, AP ICET 2023 has turned out to be a difficult and challenging task for the candidates to score reasonable and good ranks to gain admission into top Engineering colleges in AP. 
  • So, hard work, strong academic background, and sincere efforts with planned preparation are essential to face this examination. Following are a few important tips to crack AP ICET 2023, for guidance to the candidates.
  • The first step is to understand the syllabus and exam pattern of AP ICET 2023 thoroughly.
  • Keep a hard copy of the complete syllabus till the examination and go through the same from time to time to ensure that no topic is missed. In accordance with the topics in the syllabus select/procure suitable study material or books.
  • Draw a timetable covering the entire syllabus leaving at least a fortnight’s time for revision of the entire syllabus before the examination date.
  • Carry out appropriate analysis/review of your study pattern and find out loose ends/mistakes and make adjustments/corrections accordingly.
  • It is always advisable to make notes of all topics being studied for revision purposes.
  • Time Management in solving the problems/answers is more important. So, focus on mock tests/solving previous question papers setting a prescribed time limit, and ensure to learn time management which will eventually help in the main examination.
  • Set appropriate goals by dividing one topic at a time and accomplish them on daily basis. Though the syllabus initially appears to the candidate as voluminous, over time, with accomplishing the goals every day, one can understand that the entire syllabus can be covered successfully before the examination.
  • The student should first attempt to study the theory part and understand the same thoroughly. Then the student should start solving the problems.  Such an approach will enable the student to understand problem-solving in a logical way that will help in solving problems correctly in the AP ICET 2023, within the timeframe.
  • List out doubts/clarifications required on the topics and seek help from the Seniors or Faculties from time to time.
  • Students can also consider joining a crash course, which will help them to master the subjects with a planned strategic manner with appropriate guidance from the faculties.
  • Another important tip for the students is to avoid distraction from the main goal of preparation for the examination. Strong determination alone helps the students to avoid diversion from the attention or focus on the main goal.
  • Studying non-stop for long hours would deplete the productivity of the students. Hence, students are required to take this into account while preparing their time table to ensure that there will be a minimum “recess time” to refresh themselves before commencing the next session of study. No doubt, students tend to study for long hours before examinations.
  • To enhance the productivity, it is a must to rest or relax at defined intervals, which does not mean watching blue screen. Students should relax doing short work outs or meditation etc. which will enhance their concentration on the study.
