3. How to prepare for the AP ECET exam?

Ap ECET is not much hard to crack if you start preparation in the right way. The exam pattern is  50 marks allotted for the Mathematics section, 25 marks for Physics, 25 for Chemistry, and 100 for the core engineering subject. The total marks are 200 for this exam. To begin with, first, analyse the chapters in the syllabus because many of the chapters are not included in the diploma courses. Mathematics usually needs more effort and attention for the diploma students to qualify for the exam. Chemistry is the most scoring section in the exam so don’t neglect it, thinking it is a bit easier than the other sections. Lots of practice questions are to be practised for the physics section. The overall preparation has to start a year before. The duration of the exam is three hours, so practising sample papers maintain the time frame.

4. What are the qualifying marks and cut-off marks for AP ECET 2022?

A candidate has to score a minimum of 25% of marks to qualify for the exam. However, qualifying for the exam does not always guarantee a seat. However, year-wise, it has been seen that almost all the students qualifying for the exam get a seat in one or the other engineering colleges of AP. Getting a seat in the engineering college needs a score of the minimum cut-off marks. The cut-off marks usually vary year-wise and depend upon the official authority also. The deciding factors for the cutoff marks are the total number of candidates appearing for the exam in the year 2022, the total number of candidates qualifying for the exam, marks obtained in subjects priorities, and the difficulty level of the exam in 2022. Sometimes, it also depends on the marks obtained by the topper.

Counselling starts on a specific date and time. On that very date, seat allotment and document verification are done. The counselling date for AP ECET was in October 2022 and the final round of seat allocation according to the cut-off marks and vacant seats are to be done in December 2022.
