Sonali Sahu Student Expert 13th Oct, 2019


In general, Try to do your best and get basics and solve numericals from each chapter from all the 3 subjects.

try to give mock test and know where you stand and improve your position.

As for marks try to score 80-85% of total marks. A rank in range 2k-3k will make your position secure in 1st tier colleges who accepts KEAM  to intake candidates.

Hope it helps!
