The State Common Entrance Exam or the CET is another avenue for students to get admitted to reputed state universities for engineering courses. In this context, it becomes crucial to select the best fit and the most appropriate institution and seek admission in engineering college that helps one to emerge with skills, knowledge and aptitude that helps one become successful in later years. The basic steps that a student can follow to land a seat in a college are:

This is to ensure that the students’ take up specialisations that match their innate abilities
