GUJCET 2012 exam preparation tips:
Concentrate more on basics because questions asked in GUJCET exams are based on simple understanding of subjects only. No theoretical questions with descriptions are asked in GUJCET.
Consult with who already passed GUJCET and ask for guidance. What to do and what not to do.
Never try to mug anything in the exam preparation because mugging will not help you if question asked is somewhat twisted. You need to be ready for any type of questions from syllabus.
Sometimes GUJCET marks are so poor for those students who just prepare the subject by mugging not study by heart. This GUJCET marks will ultimately change students final merit list. There are enormous examples that students score fine in board exams of HSC but very poor performance in GUJCET. So, try not to belong to that group.
Concentrate on keynotes while preparing for GUJCET-2012 and prepare these keynotes while you study your HSC.
Student grasp more from self notes compared to those who are already printed in form of book or any material.
