KCET Syllabus 2018

KCET SyllabusKCET Syllabus 2018 – Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) has released the official syllabus of KCET 2018 so that candidates can check the topics relevant to the entrance exam. The KCET 2018 syllabus provides subject-wise topics that the candidate will have to prepare for the entrance exam. The three subjects included in the KCET 2018 syllabus are Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. When preparing for the entrance exam, the candidate must check which topics are scorable and which topics require extended preparation time. The candidate must also note that KEA may incorporate changes in the KCET syllabus if they deem it necessary. Candidates must keep up to date with any such changes, as studying from an out of date syllabus is a recipe for disaster. For KCET preparation, the candidate must read all the topics and also do lots of problem sets. Doing sample papers and solving previous year’s question papers is also a good way to build concept and confidence, and get exam ready.
