JIIT PGCET Preparation Tips:

First things first, you need a plan. A plan helps you every step of the way and brings you close to your goal. It saves your time of going back and forth and lets you move only in one direction and that is forward.

STEP 1 – Note down your goals.

STEP 2 – Divide your goals into smaller tasks.

STEP 3 – Assign a deadline to every task.

STEP 4 – Make a plan to execute the tasks.

STEP 5 – Start the execution of the plan.

Always keep track of your tasks (how many of them have you completed successfully and how much remains).

A few things that will help you in getting a better score are:

  • Take regular mock tests – it will help you finish the exam within the provided time.
  • Practice as any questions as you can.
  • Start early preparation.
  • Focus on your weak as well as strong points, equally.

All the best for the examination, prepare well.
