AP PGECET - M.Tech - Chemical Engineering Exam Pattern

Exam Pattern

The AP PGECET - M.Tech - Chemical Engineering is an offline exam, that is a pen paper based test. The exam will be including questions based on the Chemical Engineering subjects taught at the undergraduate level. 

There will be total 120 number of questions in the exam, with maximum marks 120 also. 

Marking System  -

  • Every question has 4 choices marked (A), (B), (C) and (D) for its answer.
  • Each question carries one mark.
  • There are no negative marks for wrong answers

The questions will be in English language only. The questions are mostly from graduation level of the relevant field. There will be 2 sections in AP PGECET - M.Tech - Chemical Engineering exam - 

Section - 1 Engineering Mathematics common for all branches.

Section 2 - Related to Chemical Engineering

Duration - 2 hours

Total Marks - 120

How to prepare

Preparation Strategy

Make a proper Time Table

It is very important that you make a time table and stick to it and you will have an exact idea of what you are required to study and the time required for it.

Concept clarity rather than rote learning

It is essential that you have a clear idea of the formulas and concepts rather than rote learning of things for the papers. While you might require it for memorizing formulas it is important that for other stuff you make sure you clear your basics and concepts before moving on.

Prepare Notes

It is very important make small notes or a comprehensive list of formulas on each covered topic and chapter which will come in handy at the time of revision. This will require you to be regular with your work but will surely make things easy at the time of revision.

Seek guidance

It is not possible for you to know everything in your syllabus, at least not at the time of preparation. Sooner or later you will run into a concept or so which will give you trouble and then it is best you seek guidance from an instructor or a teacher. It is necessary that you clear your doubts at regular intervals and don’t prolong things for long. Getting into a good coaching class is nothing to be ashamed off and if anything a regular coaching class will enable you to avoid roadblocks in your preparation.

Sample Papers

Even though there may be a complete change in the exam pattern or the expected questions altogether,it is important that you practice on the sample and previous years question papers available for the engineering exam you’d be attempting. You will know the existing pattern and have a fair idea of the type of questions to expect in the paper along with the time constraint.

Mock tests

The paper pattern, duration of the paper and the number of questions to be attempted in the given amount of time is not something you will be able to pick up on the day of the examination. A Mock Test tests a student’s abilities as it not only provides a similar feel of real exams but also helps in building speed and confident to face the exam. Furthermore, they can improve their performance to get an extra edge in actual exams.

Time management

Time management can be learnt through thorough practice and regular test taking. So it is important that you practice it and practice it well.

Duration : 2 Hours

Important Instructions

1. Candidates are required to apply for the APPGECET-2016 test through Online only (printed hardcopy of the applications will not be accepted). 2.
