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 basis 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.

Aspirants should focus on core Engineering topics and theory including those of Engineering Maths. Try and finish all the topics in the next two months. Thereafter, do not touch new topics or comfortable areas. The chief strategy should be to attempt familiar questions and leave non-familiar/non-comfortable questions. Candidates should be able to decide this within 10 seconds.

Speed will be also very critical in the exam. Apart question learning to select a question, candidates should also to reject a question in less than 10 seconds.

Expect some calculation-heavy problems. These questions are meant to be left alone. Give it a try only if are not very close.

Duration : 3 Hours

Important Instructions

The candidate seeking admission to any course should have completed 18 years of age as on the date of admission. The candidate once admitted will be treated as a registered student of the University and he / she will have to abide by its rules and regulations.

The centre is allowed to arrange or rearrange the schedule for personal contact sessions / seminars. Study centres will conduct the Personal Contact Programmes (PCP) / Contact Classes as an when required or as per demand by a minimum of 5 students. No separate correspondence will be made for conduction of PCP by SDE and Study Centre. Self Learning Material provided by SDE will be in printed form and in English language only. SDE is not liable to provide the aforesaid material in any other form or in other language. Students are requested to intimate change of their communication address immediately to SDE and to their respective study centre. The SDE and study centres will not be responsible for non receipt of any communication or material by the student, if the change of address is not communicated to SDE and to their respective study centre immediately. The School of Distance Education or the study centre will not be responsible for delay or loss in transit of any communication or material. Information related to programme fees, examinations, Personal Contact Programme (PCP) etc. will not be sent to the students by post. Student should visit the website regularly for the updates and/or student should be in contact with their academic study centre regularly for the updates. SDE and study centres reserve the right to send or forward any information to the students on their personal mobile number or on number which they have mentioned in the admission forms through using the 'Mobile SMS Facility' at any point of time. Complaints of any kind by students will not be entertained in this regard. SDE and study centers reserve the right to send or forward any information to the students on their personal Email address or on Email ID which they have mentioned in the admission forms through using the 'Internet Facility' at any point of time. Complaints of any kind by students will not be entertained in this regard. Management reserves the right to schedule classes solely at its discretion and availability of teaching resources and other things. Students have to arrange for their travel and accommodation at their own cost and will wherever required. SDE reserves the right change the structure of existing syllabus in any of the programme at any point of time or stop further admission in any of the programmes at any point of time. SDE and Study Centres will not send any information to its Ex-students or repeater students. Student cannot resubmit the Home Assignments to SDE Study Centres for improvement of marks once Home Assignments submitted by the student. There is no provision for revaluation and verification of Home Assignments. Assistance will be provided to secure placements for students; no guarantees are being made regarding the same. Any disputes that may arrives are subject to the jurisdiction of the Court of the city where the respective Study Center is located. SDE reserve the right to add / remove / edit any terms or condition solely at its discretion. It is the student's responsibility to read and the familiar with the policies and regulations as laid down in this brochure. In case of any dispute, ignorance of regulations cannot be used as an excuse.
