    How to Attempt AEEE 2020 Entrance Exam?

    Candidates appearing for AEEE should understand and remember all the aspects of AEEE exam pattern. If you are appearing for AEEE 2020, knowledge about its pattern and topics that hold importance and significance in the exam will surely give you an upper hand over a well prepared but less informed student. Here are some important instructions for candidates appearing for AEEE 2020.

    • We advised students to start with the chemistry section as it consumes less time. The section does not involve heavy calculations and complex problems. If your concepts about basic chemistry are strong and you are well educated about rules of organic Chemistry along with formulas of physical chemistry, you will have to invest less time in the section.
    • Physics can be a little tricky in AEEE 2020 at times. However, with clear concepts, you can tackle heavy questions in the section easily. Getting/ making a handbook that contains important formulas will surely help. It will not only help you remember the basic concepts and formulas but with regular practice.
    • Mathematics is considered as the toughest section of all as mentioned earlier. It is advisable to divide the topics into three parts as mentioned above. You can divide the topics into sections
    • Dividing topics as per your strength would help you strategize your preparation in a monotonous and healthy manner. Writing important formulae, squares, cubes over the wall of your study table will help you revise in your subconscious every time.
